Okay, I’m just gonna give it to you straight.  This Roasted Butternut Squash soup did not change my life like the Pumpkin Chipotle Barley one.  But you can’t eat that every week, can you? And fall needs you to embrace butternut squash.  It’s like sweet potatoes, minus the sweet and the potatoes.  So, I did what […]

apple cake with caramel glaze

I start to get panicky when the signs of fall arrive.  There are so many things to see and do and make and read and bake.  I’m all aflutter and can’t decide what to do first.  I’m dreaming of books by the fireplace, pumpkins on the porch, and the fall mantel bedecked with twigs and feathers […]

I don’t know about y’all, but three weeks of school has got me begging for mercy.  Labor Day couldn’t have come at a better time. Hats off to all you mamas for dealing with this homework issue all these years.  When you homeschool, the deadlines are a little soft, as in, “I’m sleepy, let’s finish […]

So, in case you didn’t know, I call myself the soup whisperer. I even bought the web domain so that someday when I launch my Soup Whisperer book, I’ll already own the web page. That might be what you call putting the cart before the horse. If soup’s not my specialty, then putting the cart […]

This has become my favorite meal to serve when we have company.  It’s more than a meal. It’s an event.  And it’s so EASY and delicious.  And it’s the perfect mix of laid-back and gourmet.  And here’s the best part.  You don’t an ocean, you don’t need a fancy cooker, you don’t even need fresh […]

chocolate banana bread {with chocolate chips}

So, here’s the thing.  I’ve been messing around with this recipe for a couple weeks.  I think it’s pretty perfect now.  It’s a very moist cake bread (who am I kidding?) and tis best to let it cool before you cut it or it’ll be, shall we say…… gooey.  But, once it’s cooled, then I […]
