Cream Cheese Swirled Brownies

These are the perfect brownies for the upcoming holiday weekend.  The Fourth of July is a great time for a picnic and fireworks.  These Cream Cheese Swirled Brownies are moist and easy to transport.  I am thinking hot dogs, hamburgers, potato salad, baked beans, and Cream Cheese Swirled Brownies this weekend!  It’s time to celebrate!

Caramelized Onion Tart

I am a great fan of picnics.   I think it dates back to when I first met my husband and we lived in Northern Michigan.  Beautiful parks and lakes were abundant and we always packed a picnic and headed out to explore the area.  A great picnic can consist of a run to the […]

Cheesecake Pie with Fresh Fruit Topping

I can’t think of a more perfect dessert than a cheesecake.  This recipe is from my stash of recipe cards and a family favorite.  I like to use a single-crust pie crust for this pie but you could also use a graham cracker crust.  Cheesecake Pie with Fresh Fruit Topping has three layers, a cheesecake […]

Orange Glazed Grilled Pork Tenderloin

I am always trying new ways to grill pork tenderloins. This time I basted the tenderloins while grilling with an orange glaze. The tenderloins are moist and delicious with a hint of orange.   Perfect to serve with grilled vegetables on a beautiful summer night.

Berry Cobbler

This is the time of year when the minute you walk into the grocery store you are immediately surrounded by fresh berries.  This time I was immediately hooked when the sign said buy one – get one free.  Well, how could I pass by that offer – so into my cart went fresh red raspberries […]

Green Bean Salad

I was headed out for a very busy day last week and wanted to prepare dinner prior to leaving the house.  I had fresh green beans and decided to whip up a cold green bean salad.  With what was in my pantry and refrigerator, I assembled the following salad.  It was just great with the […]

Poppyseed Orange Blueberry Bread

In my previous posts I mention our love for poppy seed bread.  Specifically because that is what I made for a picnic on the day I met my husband.  I am always trying new things with poppyseed bread.  The addition of blueberries and orange was a sweet success.   

Chocolate Chip Muffins

Recently, we spent a delightful weekend in Charleston, SC.  Charleston is a great food town with lots of various eateries to try.  One of our friends recommended the Fat Hen on St. John’s Island for brunch.  After a fun evening celebrating at a wedding and a late Sunday morning start, the idea of coffee and […]
