Peanut Butter Pie

I think we’re all pretty much in agreement that 9 out of 10 people love the combination of peanut butter and chocolate. So, I’m sharing with you one of the easiest recipes in the world for a Peanut Butter Pie that I’ve been making ...

Roasted Cauliflower

I love dishes that are easy to make yet taste really good, and Roasted Cauliflower is both of those things. I’ve noticed the past year or so that every LA hipster restaurant I go into these days is serving Roasted Cauliflower and Brussel ...

Blueberry and Yogurt Parfait

The past couple of weeks I have been somewhat obsessed with this blueberry compote I’ve been making. Especially in Southern California now, there has been an abundance of fresh blueberries everywhere, and I can’t seem to get enough of ...

S’mores Mini Cheesecakes

My foray into the ranks of the Girl Scouts of America was a brief and un-momentous part of my life as I entered the fourth grade. All the girls in my class were joining, so naturally I wanted to be part of this elite service-oriented group. I mean, ...

Apple Raisin Loaf Cake

Those who know me know that Mama, (that’s me) is not much of a reader. I am definitely not a reader of fiction I can tell you that.  When I’m able to harness my attention to read though, I do like a good biography or something ...

Soft Pretzels

So often in life we are confronted with crucial life altering decisions. One of the most difficult for me is “Sweet or Salty”. I know you struggle with this one too. It’s not a decision that one can make lightly, and more often ...

Toasted Coconut Doughnuts

I’m a bad, bad girl. Yesterday it poured here  in Los Angeles, something it never does except maybe 5 times a year. So when it does happen, we folks here in LA become disoriented and don’t know what to do with ourselves. Above all we ...

Blueberry Lemon Bundt Cake

I’m not much for Hollywood award shows, but I’m not gonna lie, I love the Academy Awards. I love the spectacle of it, the gowns, the speeches, the whole shebang. I was invited to an Academy Awards party at a friends house this Sunday and ...

Butterscotch Pudding Shooters

As a kid growing up in Philadelphia I can clearly remember those February days trudging home from school through several feet of snow. Our noses were frozen, our hands were numb and our toes were all but frozen off.  After peeling off layers of ...

Coffee Cake Muffins

Oh how I love the smell of cinnamon and chocolate in the morning.  Now tell me, who doesn’t like to start their day with cake. Well, I do. This morning I have cousins Ted and Mary Alice visiting from West Virginia and we’re going to ...

Chocolate Bark with Almonds

Well, I don’t mean to sound like a real Negative Nancy, but I find this holiday gift giving thing very stressful and frustrating. Each year I have given a myriad of socks, scarves, assorted candles and fragrance items. pajamas, CD’s, ...

Stuffing with Mushrooms and Apples

This is the weirdest thing, but I only eat stuffing once a year, that being at Thanksgiving time. It’s probably a wise choice being that carbohydrates are definitely not my friend, and stuffing is basically a big loaf of bread with a lot of ...

Classic Apple Pie

I think Classic Apple Pie is one of those dishes that everyone on the face of the planet loves.  No really, I challenge you to find someone who doesn’t love it. If you know somebody, send me their name so I can have a talk with them. Okay, ...

Pumpkin Cupcakes with Toasted Meringue

I live in a town called Calabasas.  It’s home to such American luminaries as Drake, Jennifer Lopez, the Jackson’s and an overabundance of Kardashians.  The word Calabasas comes from the Spanish word, “calabaza” which means ...

Autumn Apple Crumble

I recently returned from a trip to the Philadelphia area. We went to visit my friends Carol and Larry who live in rural Bucks County,  but it was also an opportunity for me to go “home”.  I grew up in suburban Philadelphia, and ...

Roasted Pears with Yogurt

Okay, raise your hand if you like to eat dessert first! Don’t be embarrassed, I’m totally willing to admit publicly that on many occasions I will have dessert before I eat my dinner. Sometimes if I’m feeling so inclined I’ll ...

Mushroom Soup

Mushrooms can be such a polarizing vegetable.  I find people either love ‘em or hate ‘em. I find myself in the group that loves them.  I love their earthiness, and their musky, woodsy flavor.  I actually find them beautiful in their ...
