Greetings readers!

After being away for a while, I missed the  blog, I hope you missed it too. I don’t know if I can call my long time away a vacation, but I was not cooking anything spectacular or worth sharing. I was just going quick and convenient. I guess no matter how much you love cooking, when you have to do it every single day, it loses a bit of its luster. But with my return, I have a delicious recipe to share with you.

Spinach Quiche – An Altered Better Homes and Gardens Recipe

The other day Clint and I teamed up to make a quiche for breakfast. He took care of the crust and I took care of the filling. The result was very delicious if I may say so myself.

Drop Biscuits from Scratch

These biscuits were absolutely delicious! Try them for yourselves and taste the difference! Continue reading

Scones for Tea?

My daughter came home from school on Thursday with an invitation from her teacher for full tea at high noon on Sunday.

What girl doesn’t like the idea of dressing up, using dainty table settings, and practicing her outrageous British accent for an hour or so? The invitation was for seven girls in her class and at the bottom it read “You may bring food or snacks appropriate for afternoon tea,” along with an in-character reference to parents’ vehicles as carriages when announcing child pick-up times.

Knefeh Surprise

Last Thursday, my nephews’ and niece’s Easter vacation started. Marc my sister’s second, decided he wanted to stay at Grandma’s till Saturday, when his family will come to pick him up and take him home.

Marc, I noticed, has taken quite an interest in cooking along the last couple of years. Whenever I am in the kitchen, he rushes in saying:”A vos ordres, Chef!”  (At your orders, Chef!). Marc also is a huge Knefeh fan. So it seemed like a great Saturday morning activity with him, to surprise his family.
