Italian Cinnamon Cookies

Some of you may know that I recently purchased the bible on Italian cooking, The Silver Spoon New Edition. This is, by far, the largest cookbook I've ever owned and one of the most valuable.

Chopped Greek Salad Recipe

Easy Crepes For Kids

I finally figured out a way to "healthify" one of my favorite European recipes--the Crepe! In my effort to get more healthy soy protein into our diets, it dawned on me that I had never tried the soy/flour substitution in crepes yet.

Our family loves mexican food of any kind, and this 9-layer dip was born out of my own personal love for supreme nachos.  I took some layer ideas from friends and then added a few of my own.  I'm sure this combo has been done before somewhere, but I'm claiming it just the same. :)… Read More
