Today I attempted to make the traditional and fussy Spanakopita with my children. And it was a disaster. A complete disaster. I wanted to make them because I know my husband loves them and we had a stupid fight this morning and I wanted to do something nice for him. So we hit up Walmart […]
Fried Chicken and Waffles has to be one of the world’s best comfort foods. It’s all decadent, and not healthy… just the way comfort food should be. I made this recipe last week because I was in serious need of some comfort food. It’s been a bit of a mad house around here lately with […]
Last week I was looking up recipes for coffee cake, and found a few that I liked, but being the experimenting baker that I am, I decided to make up a recipe for a tea cake instead. So many of my friends drink tea rather than coffee and I had some pomegranate and cardamom tea […]

If you are not familiar with the term, a starter is water and flour, that you mix and let sit for many days, and then “feed” it more flour daily to build it up.
Some dishes are pure classics. Like a perfectly seared and roasted rack of lamb. Last week Jamie cooked us up a rack of the Ovation Lamb and it was on point, so I thought I would share the recipe with you lovely folks. Of course little chef and little sous chef wanted to be in […]
