“The Sweet Solution for Food Allergies.”   That is Cherrybrook Kitchen‘s motto.  They provide alternative sweet solutions for people who suffer from food allergies and normally would not be able to enjoy….say cake, cookies, or brownies!  Oh, My!  I could not imagine a world as such and love that Cherrybrook Kitchen has offered this help! Thanks […]

Penny Answers: Whipping Cream Cheese

penny-in-pink1

Hi Charles!  Thanks for the question.  Other readers – If you checked out my tab (titled Penny), you will see that Charles asked “I’d like to know your method for whipping cream cheese. Any additives? Milk? Cream?” It’s very quite simple, Charles, and I’ll be more than happy to answer!  Just a splash of milk […]

I’ve been so excited for this day to come.  Definitely meant to post this a little earlier today, but my family came in for a weekend visit so I was hustling to get ready for their arrival.  Now that they’re here, I told them I have to take a few minutes to write my post…because […]

A Toast to 2008

As I read other food blogs’ year in review posts, I kept telling myself to stop and start mine or I’ll run out of time!  Of course, I do have almost 9 more hours until the clock turns and 2009 is here. Last year I gave you a list of my favorite recipes from the […]

Chicken Scaloppine with Saffron Cream Sauce

This is another recipe I made from the book my sister bought me for Christmas, Giada’s Kitchen.  Ben and I both loved the flavor of the saffron and creamy sauce.  It was a light meal for us, which is always nice so that we didn’t (as we have grown to say) feel like ‘death’ afterwards.  […]

Now that Christmas is over, I feel like I can back up and post a few things where I fell behind.  So, the next couple of posts will be to catch up.  Forgive me for the lack of posts this last week, as I spent Christmas on an island in the Chesapeake Bay (my in-laws’ […]

Merry Christmas!

Merry Christmas!  I hope you all are able to spend the day with loved ones while eating splendid treats!  Here’s one treat I gave my mother-in-law for Christmas.  She shares my love of dark chocolate, and right now this TCHO chocolate is my favorite.  It is the Mini Gift Collection from TCHO with their brand […]

I brought these treats to Emily’s Holiday Open House Sunday night.  They were delicious!  Joelen, from Joelen’s Culinary Adventures, was also at the party and said they tasted like a rich brownie…except crunchy!  It was also a great opportunity for me to use my Roasted Cacao Nibs that TCHO sent to me for a tasting. […]

Our friends who live in California (Aaron and Emily) were in town visiting family for the holidays.  Each year they host a Holiday Open House, and this is our chance to see them!  This year, I was excited to meet a mutual friend of ours (and fellow Nestie), Joelen, who is a part of a […]

Garlic and Sun-dried Tomato Corn Muffins

My sister gave me my Christmas presents over Thanksgiving, since I won’t actually see her during Christmas.  :(  She was pretty sneaky in buying my gift while we were out shopping together on Black Friday.  We were in Williams-Sonoma and I was drooling over the cookbooks and cookbook stand…little did I know she was soaking […]
