Fruit & Cheese

Wishing I had eaten more fruit and cheese and less pie and cookies.

Cranberries

I think I could go for a cranberry muffin this morning 🙂

Brussel Sprouts

I had never seen Brussel sprouts growing. I found them fascinating, although not very tasty to me.

Oreo Cheesecake

Disclaimer: I did not eat this cheesecake. I don’t like original cheesecake but I’m pretty sure this type of cheesecake tastes good. On Wednesday, I went to lunch…

The Dog House

The Dog House will be John’s next adventure after graduation. Here his dad is cooking up some dogs at the graduation party.

Strawberry Carrots

I hope everyone who celebrates Easter had a nice day. My task was to bring fruit so I made a few strawberry carrots for decoration. As always, my…

Bake-Off: 2x Winner

Yes folks, that’s right, I was a 2x winner at the Bake-off! In the first image you can see the final presentation of my baked goods. The judges…

Bake-Off

Today we have a bake-off at work. I seemed to have gotten a little carried away with my entry. I was going to make my traditional chocolate chip…

Black Friday

No Black Friday shopping for me…I’m stuffed. I actually did buy a couple things online but from the comfort of sitting in front of the fireplace and using…

Happy Thanksgiving 2014

Fudge, Fudge, Baby

My sister-in-law and I made fudge over the weekend. We made two recipes, the fudge pictured here is Rocky Road Fudge Bites made with Jell-O instant pudding. The…

Vacation Food

Easter Dessert

In yesterday’s photo I showed pictures of the deviled egg chicks and the bunny bread Mom and I made for Easter. They came out okay, but then my…

Chicks and Bunnies

I hope all who celebrate had a Happy Easter. Mom and I tried to make a couple of themed foods for Easter brunch. The Deviled Egg Chicks came…

Haymarket in Winter

I’ve been to Haymarket in the spring, summer and fall, but I think this is the first time I’ve been in the winter. I didn’t realize the vegetable/fruit…

Apple Pie

I think it’s been almost two months since I’ve had chocolate. While I stopped the chocolate (I was a bit out of control) I probably had twice as…

Banana Nut Muffins

We had another rainy, snowy, slushy weekend. I didn’t leave the apartment yesterday. The good thing about this weather is that I’ve been doing some cleaning and organizing….

Hot Chocolate Station

My sister-in-law Melissa provided the hot chocolate station. Yes, she has her very own hot chocolate maker and it really whips up a creamy drink. Plus, all the…

Cookie Station

We had a family Christmas celebration on Dec. 16th as one of my brothers goes to the in-laws for Christmas and we don’t get to see them. Instead…

A New Year…

Out with the old, in with the new. Actually, the gift that was swapped the most during the Yankee Swap was a box of Twinkies. I know there…

Fenway Holiday: Snacks

This is a sight you’ll never see at a Red Sox game…low prices at the concession stand! A pretzel is normally $4.50 at the game but I got…

Cupcake Charlies

Twice I’ve gone to Cupcake Charlie’s in Plymouth with my friend and both times I have passed on buying a cupcake. They look awesome and I’m afraid if…

Saquish Tomatoes

On the deck at Saquish my aunt has a barrel with a couple tomato plants and some herbs. Tomatoes aren’t my favorite but I really liked the look…

Dessert Time

While I would have loved to pop a handful of these treats into my mouth, I only took one strawberry dipped in chocolate. My first week of trying…

Breakfast of Champions

I enjoy a good hearty breakfast. A little fruit for something sweet, an organic egg, and some chicken sausages (range free, no antibiotics, etc.) do the trick. It’s also…

Pork Chop with Black Raspberry Sauce

I had high hopes for this black raspberry sauce but it didn’t taste up to my expectations. I crushed up fresh black raspberries, added some orange juice and…

Chicken Salad with Apples, Grapes and Walnuts

Once Memorial Day is over it’s always a reminder that summer is only a few weeks away and that I need to lose the winter fat. So, on…

Thaitation

The other day it was in the mid 50s and I ate lunch outside. Yesterday was in the low 40s, still not bad for the middle of winter,…

Happy Thanksgiving to all! I hope everyone is enjoying the holiday with loved ones. I will be spending the day with family and enjoying more food than my stomach…

Nut & Meat Chopper

Over the holidays I was staying with Mom and Dad and I asked my Mom if she needed any help with the zucchini bread she was making. She…

Dubble Bubble…

…I’m in Trouble! Usually reserved for softball season, these pieces of gum come in handy when I need a quick sugar fix. Yes, I’ll confess, “I am a…

Creepy Carrot

I pulled this carrot out of the bag of baby carrots and it freaked me out a little bit. It looked like fingers reaching out to grab me….

Florida Oranges

What’s Florida without oranges? Well, it’s still Florida but not as tasty! Nothing better than fresh squeezed Florida oranges. When I was visiting my parents we would buy…

Animal Sculptures

These shots of the animal sculptures were taken at the Hobe Sound Art Festival back in February. They close down a section of one of the streets and set up tents…
