• Deviled Eggs

    Deviled Eggs

    Ready for Easter? Make these Deviled Eggs for the holiday. They are quick and easy to put together with just a few ingredients. 10 minute eggs were used for this recipe. I brought a small pot of water to a rapid boil and placed the eggs in the boiling water. I set the timer for 10 minutes. When done, I rinsed the eggs under cold water and allowed them to cool off on the counter. Next, I peeled the eggs, cut them in half, mashed the yolks in a small bowl and added the rest of the ingredients. I mixed them well to make a smooth-ish filling for the eggs.…

  • Charcuterie Board

    Charcuterie Board

    Are you ready to receive those guests?  Whether for the holiday season or a friendly get together, a simple Charcuterie Board with all the delicious bites is sure to get your guests eating and enjoying themselves.  The word Charcuterie is French, and it means cold cooked meats. While I love the cold cooked meats idea, I do need to pair them with cheeses, breads/crackers, fruit, veggies and nuts. I mean, why not?! So, this is my kind of Charcuterie Board. Add a glass of fine wine and i’m content! The more colorful, the better. And all these different textures on one platter make me so happy. So, for a holiday…

  • Refreshing Bourbon Cocktails

    Who doesn’t love a tasty and refreshing cocktail? I know I do! Especially while trying to unwind after a long day or a long and busy week. Now, I have to say that I am new to the Bourbon craze. Frankly, I don’t know much about Bourbon. But, the few cocktails I have tasted here and there, from my husband ordering them at a bar or restaurant, awoke my senses. It is definitely an acquired taste; the more I drink it, the more I like it. Don’t judge me! 😉 So I toyed around with some simple syrup varieties and decided to try a bourbon cocktail using a jalapeno batch…

  • Mango+Peach+Mint Sorbet

    This summer treat is the easiest to make and it is so delicious. You can even make it a boozy treat if you wish, for all the adults (21+) at your party. I added a little Elderflower liquor like St-Germain to the mix, but I suspect that it would be delicious with Rum, Tequila and even Vodka.

Play around and mix this up with various seasonal ingredients; add cantaloupe, peaches, blackberries, and even your favorite crumbled cheeses. Pure deliciousness and OH so fresh and light. I served this with a soft boiled egg…

Check out this salad!  Growing up, this type of salad was always on our breakfast, lunch and dinner table. We were lucky to have fresh veggie from the garden, too.  You can mix this up by adding radishes or even thinly sliced peppers. You can’t mess this up, really!  I used to eat this salad with fresh homemade bread and butter. I mean I used to dip the bread in the leftover dressing. Try it.
