Baking?? Who am I??

I don’t know what’s come over me but I think I have a problem, a big problem.

I have been baking.  Seriously.  I’m not kidding.  BAKING!  And some serious baking.

I saw some browning bananas the other day and normally I would wait another day or 2 to see if anyone puts them to use and if not I throw them into the freezer until the next 6 month bug I get to make my go to banana bread.  But no, not this past week, I saw them and thought, Hmmm I can make a banana cream cheese pie or a banana cream pie, I do after all have 2 graham cracker pie shells in the cupboard that have been there for quite some time…

I even looked on line for a banana cream pie/pudding/cheese cake recipe, I even checked if I had the ingredients and I made a list to pick up the missing ingredients I was missing during the next visit to the grocery store. *gasp*

Who am I??

Has my Mr. been slipping some herbal substance that causes increased domestication into my tea?  When it comes to the possibility of him getting more sweets and baking in the home, I wouldn’t put it past him…

The time is nearing, cooler evenings.  The time for sweaters and scarves.  Knit mittens and playing in the crisp leaves.  Warming up around the fire. Continue reading

There is a fantastic restaurant or ‘greasy spot’ just off the highway near where I live.  You know one of those restaurants that looks not so hot from the outside but the food is to die for?  Ya, it’s one of those places. Continue reading

My husband loves to bake home made bread and he’s quite good at it. While we all love a great home made loaf of bread like the above garlic rosemary that fills the house with the warm smells of fresh bakeries, there isn’t always time for that. Continue reading

From my Grill to yours

A little bit of food goes a long way… well not in my house but it sounded good to say!

There’s just something about BBQ’s.  It’s so nice to be surrounded by friends and family in the out doors sharing some fabulous food.

While I like to eat healthy and ensure that my children get their fill of healthy and nutritional foods we also love to enjoy the many foods that are available to us.  A good example of this is bacon.  I love me some bacon. I could have bacon with everything.  Things wrapped in bacon, bacon bits, cooked in bacon grease.

In a close second comes prosciutto, the thin, salty Italian deli meat. Continue reading
