  The holidays are my favorite time of the year! But, all of the cooking takes up so much time. Try making this Holiday Bruschetta – it makes the perfect appetizer.

Basil Pesto

One of the best things about my summer garden is basil. It grows so well and I am always looking for things to do with it. I harvested a bunch of it and decided to make some pesto. Pesto is one of my absolute favorite sauces and I love how versatile it is. I like […]

I use mint extract a lot during St. Patrick’s Day. Last year a friend of mine showed me how to make homemade mint extract and I have been making it ever since. It’s really easy to make, but you just have to be patient, as it takes almost 2 months to make. Give it a […]

Molly and I love to bake. We wanted to make something sweet to add to our Valentine’s Day gifts for some of our friends. Since we wanted to give out Cherry candles this year, Molly came up with the idea to make cherry heart tarts. They were really simple and inexpensive to do and absolutely […]

I went to my friend Renee’s party over the holidays and she served this soup. It is delicious, easy and tastes exactly like a taco in a bowl. I had to get the recipe from her to share. I used my gluten free no packet taco seasoning mix that you can find here: instead […]
