I was born in Baltimore and grew up in Maryland. Although I’ve lived in New York now for longer than I lived in Maryland, when I think of a taste from home I think of Maryland blue crabs. Catching and eating crabs is a fun local tradition, and nothing beats the taste of fresh caught […]
I am finally harvesting tomatoes from the garden!Â I have four different kinds of tomatoes planted, mostly cherry tomatoes.Â It is nice to be getting a variety of sizes and colors.Â I also got my first white eggplant yesterday, and the basil is still growing like crazy, which is perfect for tomato and eggplant recipes.
This is a great dinner, and the maple flavors goes perfectly with the sweet potatoes and chicken. My husband doesn’t even like sweet potatoes, and he had seconds of this dish. We prefer chicken thighs so that is what I used in this recipe, but I’m sure it would be good with chicken breasts also.
After we went blueberry picking last week we had enough blueberries left to make cobbler. I combined them with cherries because I had a bunch of those left in the refrigerator. They tasted really good together, I liked using the combination of two different fruits.
On Saturday I stopped by the Regional Market in Syracuse to browse the selection of fresh, local fruits and vegetables. It was amazing to see the mounds of produce, and it was also amazing to see the crowds of people. I went at around 10am, and it was packed, and so crowded it was hard […]

My kids loved this recipe, and what is not to like, it is basically clams with bacon and butter. It is a good thing it is an appetizer and not a main dish, so you only eat a few each. We are going to the ocean for vacation in a few weeks and can’t wait […]
No Harry Potter movie celebration is complete without hot Butterbeer to drink! So here is an easy recipe. I like this one because you melt candy to get the butterscotch flavor, so it doesn’t take long to make. It is super sweet though, since you take cream soda and add sugar and candy. It even […]
Ice cream, blueberries, strawberries and whipped cream â€“ what more do you need? Hope everyone has a great holiday and gets to see fireworks!
This is a good recipe for using up extra lunch meat. My husband likes me to have lunch meat on hand for weekend sandwiches, but no one but him and my son eat it. So half the time it ends up not getting eaten, and since it is expensive I hate to buy it and […]
