I love this recipe for my Mom's pound cake and she loved it too. I've made this with fresh or frozen peaches. And I always add that little hint of another berry to add to the color and the flavor. You can make it with strawberries, raspberries and even blueberries to go along with the peaches and all of them were delicious. Just remember if you decide to use frozen fruit, don't allow it to...

I love these cookies! Not only because they are so wonderfully decadent, but because they are a show stopper. They turn heads whenever I walk across the room with a tray filled with these beautiful little morsels! They are simple to make and yet they look like you took hours to make them.

Sometimes I love putting on a small roast in the morning so I can enjoy a fantastic roast beef sandwich at lunch. Especially when it’s this easy!

I love one pot meals. You know ...those recipes where you throw all the right ingredients into one skillet or pot and leave it to become delicious all by itself. This one is the perfect example of what a one pot meal should be. It's a perfect blend of rice and beans with the right seasonings and then I added some smoky kielbasa to the mix. Oh My Goodness what a quick and easy one skillet...

Recently, friends were coming over for one of my home cooked meals. My plan was to make one of my favorite comfort meals like Swiss steak, mashed potatoes, and green beans. But when one of my friends informed me at the last minute that he and his wife had just recently become vegetarians, I had to move quickly to come up with a new plan. I bought some beautiful hamburger-sized Portebella...

I love this recipe. It's a wonderful twist on an old Italian classic but who would have thought that layering it with cheese and sauce would have changed the whole dish? It's delicious and gets better each day.

An old picture resurfaced today. It just popped up out of nowhere it seems.....stuck beneath another photo in my Mom's family album. I went looking for my favorite picture of my her and there it was, a blast from the past. It was if I was supposed to see it today. It was as if she wanted to comfort me and remind me of better, much happier days...just as she did so many times when my heart was...

Okay, I’m about to make a prediction. I predict that if you make these cookies and eat just one, you will decide that this is your favorite cookie ever. You will make them time and time again because you can’t get enough of them. They are so good in fact that you will find yourself making them for other people and keeping them for yourself! They are that good.

I can't really tell you when this pie originated. Some say it dates back to the 1800's and it was a favorite from the Amish and the Shakers. I just know that the recipe was in my Mom's collection of old recipes and I can remember she made it a lot.

If you like custard as much as I do, this pie is for you. The custard is rich and thick and creamy and has a distinct vanilla flavor. It's...

“When a daughter loses a mother, the intervals between responses to grief lengthen over time, but the longing never disappears. It always hovers right at the edge of awareness, prepared to surface at any time, in any place, and in the least expected ways.”

"I am fooling only myself when I say that my mother exists now only in the photographs on my desk or in my albums, or in the outline of my...

Missing my Mom today, as probably many of you are who's mothers have moved to heaven.

I really loved my Mother with all my heart. She was truly the love of my life. She believed I could do anything and she was the truest friend I've ever had.

God sent me to the arms of an angel... and her arms were always open when I needed a hug. Her heart always understood when I needed a friend. Her...

I stopped by the cemetery today. It's too hard to do it on Mother's Day so I went today to leave some flowers for her. I know she's not there, heaven is where I'm betting, with my dad, laughing and watching me stumble through life, doing my best.

I don't need a day on the calendar to remember her, I do that every day, usually the memories are sweet...

When I created Welcome Home, I had an image in my mind of a place so inviting that you never wanted to leave. A place so magical you could almost breathe in the fresh air and smell the flowers all around it.

I imagined a place that had beautiful flowers and trees everywhere and a cobblestone walk leading up to a big wrap around porch with hanging plants all around. I imagined lovely cape cod...

If you love growing your own vegetable garden, this is a wonderful little salad you can make with a few cherry tomatoes and a couple of cucumbers! But even if you don't garden you'll love it. It is so unbelievably simple, and so delicious and healthy and just perfect for a summer picnic or cookout. You can serve it as a main dish or side. Or, you could even spread it on toast or Brushetta or...

Lunch today was a crispy chicken salad with a dressing that you will never forget. Unbelievable Asian salad dressing that makes this the best salad ever! And you can add so much more to this salad to make it even better. See my suggested list of other ingredients you can add.

Summer's coming and that means lots of cold salads to take to your cookouts and picnics. And what's a picnic or barbecue without a favorite pasta salad? This happens to be one of my favorite and it always gets great reviews....or should I say, I always take home an empty bowl after every gathering!

You know the old phrase: "you don't know what you've got 'til it's gone?" That's not exactly true.

The truth is: You knew exactly what you had; You just thought you'd never lose it."

Remember, you can't put your arms around a memory. Hug someone in your life today and tell them you love them. Make sure they how you feel. Because no matter how much you cry one day and call out their name,...
