Fresh & Easy Marinara Sauce

Fresh & Easy Marinara Sauce

This weekend, after a frustrating week at home with the kids, I needed an escape. A friend asked if I would like to spend an evening with her and another mutual friend. Needless to say, I jumped at the chance! After much discussion, the three […]

Roasted Red Pepper & Basil Pesto Penne (With No Pine Nuts)

The concept of Meatless Monday amuses me. I’m Catholic. Why have meatless Monday when every Friday is supposed to be meatless? While, technically, Catholics are supposed to eat meatless on Fridays all year, most only give up meat during the Fridays of Lent. And, honestly, […]

Sweet Saturday: Grandma’s Pecan Pie

Growing up, I always looked forward to Thanksgiving for one main reason, eating my Grandma Scott’s pecan pie! We only had the pie once a year back then, at Christmas time. I remember joking with my parents as we “fought” over the last piece of […]

Italian Quiche

Italian Quiche

When I was a little girl, in the 1970s, I remember hearing the phrase, “real men don’t eat quiche.” I found this phrase a bit confusing because I had no clue what quiche was. I’m quite sure my dad never bought into the real men […]
