You’d never know from the sun shining on these muffins that we just received a foot of snow. I love it! We haven’t had this much know in Kansas City in 10 years so for this snow-belt-in-northeast-Ohio-bred-gal, this is just fine!! What could be better for Saturday brunch...

Oven Fried Garlic Parmesan Chicken Well, I’m back after a month long hiatus caused by breaking my arm. Boy, it’s hard to type using only your non-dominant hand. I would get home from work so tired that I couldn’t muster up enough energy to post anything! I sure don’t...

Napa Cabbage Salad I recently made this for an after theater potluck with a bunch of college students and there was not one piece left at the end of the dinner. I thought this would be a good recipe to post while I’m on vacation in Cancun since it is a nice light salad. Napa...

Ravioli with Brown Butter and Sage This is a fantastic dish composed of only four ingredients – butter, cheese ravioli, fresh sage, and walnuts. I had made some spicy pork sausage and had fresh sage left over but it is worth it to splurge on fresh sage in order to make this!...
