Smoked Salmon Pizza

I’m not sure how or when I came across this recipe for Smoked Salmon Pizza, but every time I looked through my huge stack of printed recipes I’d see it. While we’re on the subject, yes I print recipes I want to make because I like having a hard copy in front of me while […]

Tomato and Goat Cheese Tart

Do you ever see a recipe and just know, instinctively, that it’s going to be amazingly delicious? That’s how I felt when I read my friend Kylee’s post about this Tomato and Goat Cheese Tart .

Pork and Shrimp Dumplings

The theme for our latest dinner with our friends C & T was Asian food. We usually pick one recipe to make at T’s house and this time we chose Steamed Dumplings. I’ve never made dumplings before and incorrectly assumed they’d be a lot of work. Nope! (all photos by T. Casey) T always cons […]

Fried Mozzarella Sticks

Baby Girl loves cheese sticks. She eats them as a snack almost every day after school. Or rather, she used to. One week I noticed the package in the fridge was still mostly full so I checked the expiration date. It was that weekend. Since the Super Bowl was coming up I figured I’d turn […]
