Iced Pumpkin Cookies Tantalize the Senses

Iced Pumpkin Cookies
Iced Pumpkin Cookies are filled with dried cranberries, granola, white chocolate chips and warm spices.

Isn’t it funny how powerful our senses can be? My family takes a trip to the Tennessee Mountains every fall and you can’t drive very far up there without seeing a pancake house. The smell alone puts me in a good mood.  On a cool mountain morning, who can pass up the scent of crispy bacon, cane syrup and stacks of buttery, fluffy and warm silver dollar pancakes?  Continue reading “Iced Pumpkin Cookies Tantalize the Senses”

Easy Stuffed Bell Peppers

I like to alternate the lids and peppers for interest and variety. I love the way the different colors look together. Drizzle them with olive oil and they’re ready for the oven!

Stuffed peppers are one of my favorite dishes to create. They’re colorful and you can pretty much stuff them with anything. Continue reading “Easy Stuffed Bell Peppers”

Spaghetti Chicken Stir-Fry: Give it a Try

I love to make stir-fry for dinner during the week. It’s fast, flavorful and so versatile. I usually serve this sauce + meat mixture over brown rice, but earlier this week, I changed things up and served it over whole wheat spaghetti instead. It was Some Kinda Good! Feel free to make this recipe your own by using whatever protein you like. Shrimp, pepper steak or even ground beef are delectable options. The sauce is slightly sweet with a little tang from the ground mustard, and the crunch from the celery and pecans gives the dish great texture.

My First Time in New York City


In mid-July, I experienced a lot of firsts. I traveled to New York City for the very first time in my 35 years of life. What a different world! There was so much to see and do, and most importantly to eat. I was amazed by the bumper-to-bumper traffic, the millions of people and constant sounds of sirens and honking horns. I was so fortunate to have a native New Yorker to show me around the city, to guide taxi drivers to my next destination and to introduce me to all the things. The culture, the languages, the pizza, the bagels, my first arancini, oh my! I have so much to tell you about. Continue reading “My First Time in New York City”

Watermelon Berry-Lime Fruit Salad

Earlier this week, we had a church picnic and I needed a covered dish to take along. I love to cook and eat foods that are in season because ingredients that are at their peak will always taste the best. Summertime is the season for blueberries and cold watermelon, and my herb garden was ripe with fresh basil and mint. Continue reading “Watermelon Berry-Lime Fruit Salad”

Grill Out This Fourth of July

I’m also sharing my recipe for Grilled Corn on the Cob with Cayenne Herb Butter. Continue reading “Grill Out This Fourth of July”
