Bread Pudding Blueberry Waffles

When I obsess about a recipe, it can get a little out of control. For several days, I contemplated a fun and easy recipe that the family can make for Mom on mother’s day. I debated if should I make pancakes, french toast or an egg dish? The thoughts consumed me! Yesterday was the worst!…

Without a doubt my favorite stew is Sancocho, which translates as stew.   In…

Spiced Ancient Grain Cereal 33

Spiced Ancient Grain Hot Cereal

I know that 2015 officially started on January 1 (obviously) but, I don’t mentally start the year until the first Monday of the New Year. Call it procrastinating or being in denial but, it’s how I roll. It’s like diets. Diets always start on Monday. There is something about the new year that gives you…

Cheddar Cheese Crackers with Apple and Rosemary

Christmas has come and gone and it’s time to trade that Santa hat for a PAR-TAY hat and some noise makers.   I am talking New Year’s Eve! New Year’s Eve parties are all about small bites, nibbles, cocktails and bubbly. It’s also about unknowingly doing your best “Elaine dance” and praying that everyones phone suddenly…

Arroz con Gandules (Rice and Pigeon Peas)

We arrived in Florida on Friday night to spend Christmas with OB’s family.  While having lunch, there was mention that there may not be arroz con gandules for Christmas Eve dinner.

These are mini rum cakes, but not just plain mini rum cakes, but apple spiced mini rum cakes with apple cider caramel sauce. When I first made these little cakes, I diced the apples, but it made the cake lumpy. They were tasty, but lumpy and very difficult to remove from the pan. Round two…
