Classic Pot Roast – Divine!

Classic Pot Roast – Perfect on a chilly day!

We don’t eat a lot of red meat. We go weeks without any and don’t think a thing about it. However, once the weather turns cool (oh, how I love these days!), the comforting smell of a pot roast in the oven sounds so good! It’s fairly quick to throw to together, and then you just let the oven work its magic! #youdontevenneedaknife #meltslikebutter

Scrumptious Soft Boiled Eggs!

Absolute Perfection!

We grew up eating soft boiled eggs as kids. They were always perfection on top good toast. Something warm with a mugful of hot cocoa before our long trek to school as tiny little kids, in the snow, with big snow boots on… haha… #itwasuphilltoo (KIDDING!) We did have quite a long walk for little kids (Grades 1-5), and we weren’t quite far enough away to stay for the hot lunches, so had to walk home for lunch, then walk back.

Good chocolate when baking makes a difference!

Guittard Unsweetened Chocolate Baking Bar ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

Sometimes the smallest changes can change the results of a recipe, especially when baking. Always try to use the highest quality ingredients for recipes that matter (i.e. in a brownie recipe, where chocolate is the main flavor). I almost didn’t purchase this because “the other baking bars” that I’ve used since I was a kid have worked just fine. Until…

This salt is AH-MAZING, it’s not just any old salt, it’s special in so many ways (and I’m not a salt lover) – it’s great on savory dishes (eggs/arugula and avocado toast) or something as delightful as Katharine Hepburn’s brownies (to die for).

Cooking Light Magazine…

Happily Subscribed Once Again… at least for a while.

Cooking Light magazine – one of my all time favorites. I was an avid reader (from the early 90’s until they decided to merge some of their info into Eating Well magazine and sell Cooking Light as a magazine that you can buy in store only (no subscriptions). I never bought one of the special interest publications, but once the subscriptions started back, woohoo, I was too excited.
