Cat Head Biscuits

February 26, 2015 by andrea | Comments Off on Cat Head Biscuits | Filed in Baking, Bread, Comfort Food, Quick Cooking, Recipes

I was instantly intrigued by this recipe because of it’s name and because my family loves biscuits. This Cat Head version is super easy to make (no rolling pin required), and they bake up tender, fluffy and delicious! They don’t have the flaky texture that a rolled out biscuit has but they are tasty all the same…and perfect when slathered […]

  If you’ve never made homemade meatballs, it’s time to step up to the plate and give it a swing. Sure, you can buy a bag of them at the grocery store but there’s really no comparison between a good, homemade meatball and the spongey, frozen store-bought variety! These Sicilian Meatballs are flavored with fresh herbs, good parmesan cheese (worth […]

Classic Strawberry Shortcake is one of those recipes you need to know how to make: easy-to-make biscuits layered with juicy strawberries and freshly whipped cream…heaven!

November 29, 2012 by andrea | Comments Off on Heartland Turkey and Vegetable Chowder | Filed in Comfort Food, Holidays, Main Dish, Recipes, Soup/Stew, Thanksgiving, Turkey, Vegetable

I’m always on the search for new ways to use up leftover turkey, which is what led me to this delicious soup. It’s loaded with fresh veggies and herbs, and you can substitute different veggies depending on what you have on hand. For instance, I used green beans instead of zucchini. Serve with crusty bread […]

Pumpkin Cake with Cream Cheese Frosting

November 20, 2012 by andrea | Comments Off on Pumpkin Cake with Cream Cheese Frosting | Filed in Autumn, Baking, Cakes, Christmas, Comfort Food, Cookies & Bars, Dessert, Holidays, Recipes, Thanksgiving

Pumpkin admirers will love this moist pumpkin cake. It’s easy to make, not too sweet, and tastes pumpkin pie-ish (only better)! The cake took longer to bake than the recipe states. I had to turn my oven down a bit so it wouldn’t brown too much. Check the cake at 30 minutes and if it’s […]

Chocolate Zucchini Cake

August 28, 2012 by andrea | 1 Comment | Filed in Baking, Cakes, Chocolate, Comfort Food, Recipes

I love secret ingredient recipes, and you’d never know there was shredded zucchini hiding inside this moist, chocolatey cake. Even my Picky Eater who normally runs away from zucchini (and many other “green” things) commented that he liked it. The cake is great on it’s own or served with a scoop of vanilla ice cream. While […]

It’s officially Spring but it’s still a bit chilly here in the Pacific Northwest. In fact, we got a surprise couple inches of snow last night so school is on a two-hour late start this morning. While the kids are out playing in the fluffy white stuff, I’m thinking about what soup I’ll be making today. Here’s […]
