breakfast air fried egg rolls

cherry-almond biscotti and other hard things in life

Spell check does not like the word biscotti. It underlines it for me, in its bright red zig zag pattern, mocking my confidence in cookies. Like the  mother in law that still remembers the times you did not hold to her standards, spell check is there: saying “that is wrong”. Well, spellcheck, it’s…

baked sour cream doughnuts

   There are times I get cravings for moist, cake like doughnuts smothered in a slightly crisp glaze, there are other times I get cravings for grilled cheese made with (gasp!) white bread and lots of salted butter in the pan, with creamy American cheese oozing at every bite. Junk food at it’s…
