This is a recipe that has been handed down from generation to generation in my husand's family. Baking bread that is an art that takes time to master. But once you do, the results are delicious!


I'm pleased to share with you some of my favorite recipes!  These come from my husband's family, my family, and tasty tidbits I have learned along the way. Be sure to visit this page often for updates!

And because I need pictorial help when I cook, many of the recipes will have pictures at every step to help keep us on track. Now, what are you waiting for? Get cooking. :-)



Bring a taste of Italy to your dinner table with my husband's Sicilian grandmother's pizza recipe, updated for use with a bread machine. This is a recipe we use at least once a week. Definitely a favorite!


This is my new favorite dessert. And it's a breeze to make. (If I can do it, anyone can.) And because it has tofu, I'm convinced that it's extra healthy. (It probably isn't. But don't burst my bubble on that one, okay?)


This is mac and cheese with a sweet twist! This is a new recipe for me (which means it must be easy), but has quickly become a favorite comfort food. You might want to give it a try.


Who doesn't like brownies? I found this easy brownies recipe and adapted it for use with dark cocoa, which can be purchased at any grocery store. If I'm busy working on an important scene and need a pick-me-up, I bake these tasty treats.


This one is easy to make, but tastes (to my untrained mouth) kind of gourmet, special. The sweet of the apple blends perfectly with the sharp cheddar cheese. You've got to try it!


Apple and Cheddar Cheese Omelet
This is how the pilgrims did it, according to my research at least. They filled the pumpkin with fruit or custard and baked it in a fire. Well, I didn't do it in a fire, but this heirloom recipe is certainly worth the effort.


Pilgrim's Pumpkin Pie in the Pumpkin
This creamy pumpkin soup has all the flavors of fall.


Italian Pumpkin Soup
It's a little bit of work to make this soup. But when you taste it, I bet you'll agree that it was worth the effort. When you make this soup, you'll turn dinner into a fall celebration.
