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…..so 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 [...]


Versatile Marinated Vegetables

February 29, 2012

Since I am blogging about marinated peppers, thought I would share a old painting I did several years ago.  You might recognize it as my Tuesday’s Tasty Tidbit’s linky party button.  Been having people ask about my paintings, so….there you go. One of my favorite things to eat with chips is a chunky marinated vegetable.  [...]

Dreaming of a White Winter But Accepting the Coming of Spring

February 26, 2012

I am normally snapping pictures right and left when I go on vacation but I kept forgetting when I went to the mountains (Angel Fire, NM) this trip with some dear friends. I got one photo of the skiers. I did take a bunch on the way home. We had a beautiful snow on us [...]


Easy Spice Carrot Cake with Cream Cheese Icing

February 21, 2012

It is not that I am sitting around baking up a storm over here. We just had a few birthdays in January. No, really! And tomorrow is my granddaughter’s birthday…..1st. She already had the traditional first piece of cake but might she need another? I have never seen a baby love cake like she did [...]


Broccoli Parmigiano Reggiano

February 20, 2012

I made some really tasty Broccoli Parmigiano Reggiano the other night.  I used my fresh cheese that I bought in Italy and it was  just plain creamy goodness. Yea……I have been hoarding that cheese.  It is so delicious and I hate that I will some day not have any more.  Though, I will say that [...]


A Painting….On the Road to Questa

February 16, 2012

I seem to have painter’s block.  This is the last one I completed and it has been a year.  I had so many issues with this one that I guess I have been feeling that I didn’t know what I was doing.  New Mexico is so beautiful and I have snapped hundreds of photos….ready to [...]
