Choc. Cake

If you are looking for another chocolate cake recipe, then we found one for you.  There is something about cold weather that makes me crave chocolate in any form.  In fact, I could probably main-line it and be happy.  If you have been around here for a while, then you know that I am obsessed […]

Rosemary Gin Fizz

I’m not going to lie.  I enjoy an adult beverage every now and then.  I am a one-drink girl, though.  That means when we go out or when we entertain, I have one drink – either a glass of Pinot Grigio or a gin and tonic.  So, when I saw the recipe for a rosemary […]

After taking a little Thanksgiving break, it was actually hard to sit down at the computer and start writing this blog post.  I am not ready for the long week-end to be over so I’m going to ease back into blogging slowly with a revisit of a post from December, 2013. We had a wonderful […]


White Potato Pie Recipe

White Potato Pie

This white potato pie recipe is a delicious custard pie with an odd main ingredient.  Even though potatoes are probably the most popular food in our diets, we don’t think of using them in desserts.  Well, we need to rethink that.  When I was a little girl, a couple named Pete and Sarah lived down […]
