Basil Spinach Pesto and Cream Sauce

March 26, 2012

I made some Basil Spinach Pesto the other day and froze it in baby food jars.  Well, maybe they were artichoke jars….but you get the picture.  Ihave seen it frozen in ice cube trays, which is an awesome idea too.  It doesn’t take much Basil Pesto added to a dish, so I only froze these [...]


Chocolate Pecan Pie

March 19, 2012

I have a favorite pecan pie.  I think I posted it before but this one was officially a Chocolate Pecan Pie….though there wasn’t much difference, except the addition of Chocolate Chips.  So, I thought I would share the new version. This is another of those recipes that I have used for so long that I [...]

It is that Secret Recipe Club time of the month.  Yea!  I have been assigned a blog called “Little Bit of Everything”.  It’s author’s name is Julie and she is from Nebraska….and she is my age….even better.  I think she has a life time [...]


Tall St. Patrick’s Day Ombre Cake

March 9, 2012

I made the tallest cake ever. I mean….ridiculously tall. A piece doesn’t fit on a disposable cake plate (which it needs to do for a party). Really? How much fun is that? Also, I tried to make one of those Ombre Cakes. Why have I never heard of these until today? Is it just me [...]

Tortellini and Garlicky Parmesan Dip

March 7, 2012

I have a favorite party dip that I have never taken to a party that I didn’t get asked several times for the recipe.  I didn’t make it up… I can’t claim it as my creation…but I have been making it for so long that I can’t remember who first told me about it.  This [...]


Colorful Fettuccini Alfredo

March 5, 2012

I had to take a very large casserole to church for a funeral meal the other day.  I don’t know who died but I am on that committee.  Really, all the ministries I am involved in have to do with providing food.  What a surprise, right?  But funerals are special to me.  I guess because [...]
