Carpool Apple Betty

Carpool Apple Betty

A recipe can be like a game of telephone. One person passes their famous recipe on to the members of their book club, those bookworms make some changes then pass their versions on to their kids, those kiddos grow up and make changes over time, […]

Granny’s Pine Nut Pesto  ||   Homemade in a Hurry

Granny’s Pine Nut Pesto || Homemade in a Hurry

Everyone has a pesto recipe somewhere in their family. And in my (fairly limited, to be honest) research, I haven’t seen major variation among pesto recipes. Most have basil, some kind of nuts, olive oil, garlic, etc. I don’t claim to know what is the […]

Parmesan Crusted Eggplant

Parmesan Crusted Eggplant

There’s an old wive’s tale that eating eggplant at the end of a pregnancy can induce labor. To be honest, I’d never had eggplant before, but once I hit 39 weeks pregnant, I ate eggplant for almost every meal in hopeful desperation. It did nothing […]

Broccoli Carrot Slaw

Broccoli Carrot Slaw
