Pecan Sandies with Toffee

Pecan Sandies with Toffee

Pecan Sandies with Toffee- melt in your mouth cookies loaded with crunchy pecans and toffee bits. So much tastier than the store bought version! Do you like your cookies crispy or soft and chewy?

15 Patriotic Porches

15 Patriotic Porches

My front porch could be the poster child for drab and boring. I finally took down my Easter wreath (I know, for shame), but now not even the front door is dressed up.

Easy Sausage Quiche Recipe

Easy Sausage Quiche– Even men love quiche when it’s loaded with sausage and cheddar cheese! I don’t remember ever having quiche when I was growing up. I think the first time I tried it was at a bridal shower brunch. I loved it.  But I neglected to get the recipe, and then I proceeded to forgot […]

Best Ever Broccoli Salad- I don’t often claim that a recipe is the “best ever”, so you better pay attention when I do!  This Broccoli Salad really is the best recipe I have ever tried. And I’ve tried a lot. Today is the first day of summer vacation at our house, and I am doing […]

Miracle of miracles. . .I am finally showing you my new white kitchen! Which isn’t really all that new, because I actually finished it a year ago. It’s taken me that long to get all the photos taken.
