I’m going to let you in on a little secret that will make your pasta sauce taste better than it ever has. Over the years, we’ve added it to numerous pasta sauces and hearty stews, but most of the time we just stir it in with all the other ingredients,... Continue reading

Photo from Taste of Home I love taking great recipes from my job at Taste of Home and adapting them to be dairy free. I recently did that with this great recipe and even demonstrated how to make it on Facebook Live (see below). This is a classic dish great... Continue reading

Why "hide" veggies when they can be the star attraction like butternut squash is in this tender, flaky roll. Continue reading

This dish came about because I had a box of no-cook lasagna noodles that got a little crushed and I am too cheap to throw them out. It turned out to be a really tasty breakfast. Continue reading

Back in 2004, I was working at Southern Living magazine in Birmingham, AL. When I needed a toffee recipe for a story I was working on, I looked to no other than my grandmother, Mildred Hayward. Hers, of course, contained butter but I just tried it with dairy-free margarine and... Continue reading

Hi Marie, I'm sorry to hear you didn't like it. I've been making this cake for at least 10 years and everyone has raved about it. It's also a very classic ratio for pound cake. What was "disgusting" about it? James
I can't tell you how many times it's happened; I was positive I hadn't eaten any dairy then those all-too-familiar symptoms started. And to top it off, it always seemed to happen at the most inopportune time, like a business dinner. After a lot of research I've narrowed down a... Continue reading

Great photo and I love the car. Why don't they make cars in colors like that anymore?
Rich, dark and insanely chocolaty cake layers are topped with a creamy, crunchy coconut-pecan topping. I couldn't think of a better way to celebrate a birthday. Continue reading

Light, airy with a rich banana flavor, this Banana Bread recipe is based on the Joy of Cooking version and is still my favorite. Over the last 20+ years I've played around with stir-ins, toppings, different size baking pans and ingredients. Try different combinations or make up your own and... Continue reading

Love Limoncello? Instead of lemons, how about tangerine and vanilla bean? Vaniglia Mandarinocello (Vanilla Tangerine Limoncello) So I made up the name. Who cares, it's a pretty damn tasty spin on traditional limoncello. 18 large organic tangerines 1 (750 ml) bottle 151 proof alcohol, such as Everclear 1 (750 ml)... Continue reading

I love taking traditional recipes and giving them a little twist. In this case, I've taken a Bavarian spaetzle, typically served as a side dish for dinner, and turned it into a great dessert. FYI, it also makes a fantastic breakfast heated up the next morning. Cinnamon Spaetzle After the... Continue reading

Simple & Delicious magazine recently published a Crispy Beer Battered Fish that looked fantastic until I saw they added milk to the batter. I love really fried fish and wondered how it would turn out without the milk. So I removed the milk, increased the beer and added a touch... Continue reading

This is a hearty, stick-to-your-ribs pancake that's for sure. Cooked rice may seem like an odd ingredient but it's a trick I learned from my mother. I had no clue she did it because it would extend the batter and she could make more pancakes with the same amount of... Continue reading

I learned many things in the six years I spent at Southern Living magazine. Making tender, flaky biscuits has to be one of the tastiest. They're easy to prepare and who wouldn't love to have these for breakfast? While cornstarch may seem like an odd ingredient, since I don't use... Continue reading

A new neighbor just moved in so I thought I'd bring over some brownies as a welcome gift. After I got these marbled brownies done I seriously thought about keeping them for myself. Sometimes it's really difficult to be nice. Super Moist Dark Chocolate and Blondie Marbled Brownies Chocolate Batter:... Continue reading
