You know how some recipes evolve every time you make them? Well, this one evolved over the course of one single preparation. I happen to love mushrooms, tomatoes, and pasta so the idea of a spaghetti sauce made with mushrooms was instantly appealing to me. It was the second Alli recipe I tried and I […]

I’ll be honest, I have no idea what a cobbler really is. It seems that there are a whole bunch of similar types of desserts called cobblers, buckles, brown Bettys, crumbles, crisps, and grunts.

This salad is about as easy as it gets to prepare. The trickiest part is finding good quality ingredients. This is going to be true whenever you are making anything that has only a small number of ingredients. Mediocre items don’t have anything to hide behind so everything has got to be as good as […]

To wrap up our special “Ice-cream Week!” here on the blog I’m inviting you to try this homemade creation that we discovered a few years back. It’s simple: Take a molasses cookie and put some “hot vanilla” ice-cream in the middle. Smoosh another cookie on top and voila you have a super-duper grown-up ice-cream sandwich! […]
