You Make My Day!

award

Thanks to two very sweet food bloggers out there (Lauren and Jaime) for letting me know that my blog “Makes Their Day”. I’m supposed to list 10 others that make my day and link to them. But, because I’ve just recently awarded an E for Excellent award and I am very short on time right […]

Gooey Yet Cake-Like Brownies

IMG_3351

Every Thursday night we hang out at our friends to watch LOST together. Last Thursday I decided at last minute to make some brownies to bring with us. Believe it or not, I do not have a favorite brownie recipe yet (besides boxed brownie mix from the grocery store) so I logged on to Allrecipes.com […]

E for Excellence

Thanks to Brooke at “…and a Cookie for Dessert” for awarding Pennies on a Platter with an E for Excellent! I’m so glad she enjoys my blog, especially the Hawaiian Rolls! Now I am supposed to award 5 other blogs with an E for Excellence. Blogs I enjoy. Typically, I believe they are supposed to […]

Pumpkin Pie Shake

Ben loves pumpkin. To me, pumpkin is seasonal and should be consumed only 3 times a year: Fall, Thanksgiving, and Christmas. I’m slowly breaking out of that mindset as Ben requests something pumpkin flavored all year long and I’m feeling bad for constantly saying “No, it’s not time for pumpkin!” Truth is, I made this […]

The brief version is “a person who receives free food” and the more detailed version is found at BlakeMakes website. I received my first round of free food today, which is BlakeMakes Peanut Butter […]

Broccoli with Orange Sauce

I need to stock my recipe files with more fruits and veggies. This recipe fits both categories as it includes broccoli and oranges. It seemed to be a strange combination as I was reading the recipe, but not when we tasted it! It was great and we’ll definitely have it again. The biggest benefit…it’s super […]

Linguine with Mushrooms & Ham

I’m on this kick where I want to try some healthier recipes. So many of our friends, family, and friends and family of friends (!) are having health issues, particularly associated with heart complications. It’s very sad and dispiriting to hear of these things, so it makes me want to ensure Ben and I are […]

Cavatelli

DSC_2458

This is one of my favorite meals. Cavatelli with vodka sauce. My friend introduced this lovely pasta to me a few years ago when we had a girls night at a random Italian restaurant in Oak Park. We didn’t know what we were going to do, or where we were going to go… so we […]
