Cheesecake Stuffed Banana Bread

Can you relate to my banana dilem­ma? Seems like I so much as bring them home that they start get­ting speck­led. With­in hours of spot­ting the first speck­le the kids con­sid­er them over­ripe and they won’t touch them “with a 10-foot pole” (as my mom says). We all know where over­ripe bananas go — to banana heav­en aka banana bread.  Con­tin­ue read­ing

The Perfect Chili

Once cold weath­er strikes, a com­mon recipe request I receive is “chili”. Sur­pris­ing­ly, I have nev­er tak­en the time to write out a chili recipe — rather, I have just dumped, stirred and tast­ed until it hits all the notes I love. But recent­ly, I decid­ed to slow down and write out my recipe. I’m excit­ed to final­ly be able share it (and all my secrets) with you! Con­tin­ue read­ing

I’m back!

Whew — the hol­i­days hit and life has been a blur ever since! I’ve got­ten so far behind that I am tempt­ed to got sit in a dark cor­ner and stare at a wall until spring. But that’s not an option so I’ll just tell you a lit­tle bit about what’s occu­pied my time and then I’ll start work­ing on writ­ing the post for a yum­my chili recipe ((com­ing soon)).
