For my daughter’s birthday party I made Kitty Cat Cupcakes. The eyes are made with chocolate chips, the nose is made with a chocolate candy lentil, and I made the ears and bows with royal icing. I had been debating various ways to make ears and bows when my friend Lisa told me about royal icing. She said royal icing is incredibly hard when it dries. You can find a …

Although I have a crock pot, I really don’t use it that much. I often see recipes that sound interesting. But since I’m home most of the day, I generally fail to see the point of preparing something in a crockpot versus just making it on the stove. This past week I finally used the crock pot to make beef and vegetable soup. I love soups. When I make soup …

One of the best investments we ever made was getting a bread machine. Ok, technically it was a wedding gift, but I did pick it out for the registry. Now I never use the bread machine to make bread from start to finish. Instead, I use the dough setting. It’s fantastic- dump the ingredients in, press start, and a little over an hour later I have dough to shape and …

Even though Thanksgiving is over, you can still enjoy a yummy pumpkin pie. You can find my step-mother’s family pumpkin pie recipe here. …

I fell in love with mochas from the first taste. I mean how can you NOT like something with chocolate? But going out for mochas can get a bit expensive, and sometimes you want to enjoy something in the comfort of your own home, in your pajamas. A true mocha involves espresso and steamed milk. That requires dirtying two thing: the coffee maker to make the espresso and a pan …

I sometimes plan my blog posts a bit in advance. Today’s post was supposed to be about how I had made fantastic macaroni and cheese. My husband is the one who generally makes the mac and cheese in this family. He’s very specific about it: shell pasta mixed with a homemade white sauce, cheddar cheese, and baked in the oven with more shredded cheddar on top. The kids love it. …

At the very end of cooking add frozen peas. Drain. Sautee diced onion in a little oil. When soft, add chicken breast chunks and cook until no longer pink. Remove from skillet. For the sauce: Melt margarine …
