Bites of Life (#10)

  Hi friends, I hope you all had a great week, full of fun and productivity. I was lucky enough to pick up some new dishes. What do you think? I know…..the cuteness…. A good part of my week was spent in Southern Oregon with the folks at Harry & David. (If you follow on Instagram, … Read More »»

Peeps Chocolate Donut Nests

  Easter is almost here and while many of us are planning the main meal, whether that’s brunch or dinner, we can’t forget about treating the kids (or adults) to something sweet for breakfast while they are hunting for those eggs.  I’m not sure if these Peeps Chocolate Dipped Marshmallow Chicks are new this year … Read More »»

Easter Trail Mix Cookies

The sun is shining today, it’s even supposed to be 73 degrees. That’s almost vacation weather in my book. Spring is so beautiful in Oregon, there is just nothing that compares to the green we have here. Well, maybe Ireland could give us a run for our money…. Anyway, the stores are filled with Easter … Read More »»

When I told … Read More »»

Baked Apples with Maple-Walnut Sauce

If you could only smell these…wow. It’s apple pie without all the fuss. It’s comfort food. It’s home. What an easy little recipe that gives so much flavor and taste. The cinnamon-laced juices are just incredible. Heaven on a plate. Apples also made the top 20 in a USDA list of foods with the highest … Read More »»

Vanilla Cider Pork with Pears & Walnut Wild Rice

Pork, pears and cider are a very natural combination, one I love.  This recipe uses “hard” cider (with alcohol) because of its crispness and acidity.  Never had hard cider?  Look for it wherever beer is sold, it might be your new favorite adult beverage.  It’s very, very good and can be purchased year round.  Non-alcoholic … Read More »»
