Apple Pie for the Whole Weekend

We just went down to Kansas to visit some relatives, including a great grandma who is 92 years old! I wanted to bring a treat that could feed 15 people, that could be made ahead, and that could withstand an 8-hour drive in the car. Apple pie is a family favorite this time of year, but making several pies and bringing them in the car didn't make sense -- until I came across a recipe for Glazed Apple Pie Bars.

"Bottom of the Bag" Parmesan Onion Bread

I always fall into that trap of buying a bag of onions thinking "It's cheaper! And you get so much more!" Then, after baking a roast, making some vegetable soup and perhaps one or two other meals, I find myself at the bottom of the bag with no use for the last few wilting onions.  (Am I the only one this happens to?) The thing is, I have been raised with the "waste not, want not" attitude, so no way am I throwing those babies out! And off searching for an onion recipe I go.

Anytime is a Fun Time with Butter Cookies

A fun time can be anytime if you are making easy butter cookies.  It is especially fun when I bake cookies with my 5-year old grandson, Mark.

A Tasty App to Tide You Over

For us - and many of our friends - weeknight dinners are a toughie. Both spouses are working all day, and we are still terrible at planning ahead, so it's rare to have meat defrosted and a meal ready to start when we get home. We are working on that, but in the meantime, this dilemma usually leaves us rummaging for an appetizer to tide us over while we set to work on the main course.

A State Fair Winner - Peach Cobbler Coffee Cake

I recently went on a “girls only” long weekend trip with my close friend Mary.  We traveled to Charleston, South Carolina to enjoy beautiful scenery, rich history, wonderful food and great shopping.  The weather was a bit warm as the thermometer reached at least 98° each day, and on top of that it was very humid.  But, a little warm weather didn’t bother us one bit.  We explored the charming town of Charleston, visited a nearby plantation and made a day trip to Savannah, Georgia.  On our drive to and from Savannah we kept seeing signs for roadside stands selling fresh peaches.  Although we didn’t stop to purchase any, peaches have been on my mind.
