German Chocolate

~ Mary ~

It was Fred’s birthday again – funny how that works out. His favorite cake is German’s Chocolate. There’s a bit of a history I learned while looking for the perfect recipe – I thought it was a cake with German origins, but it’s not. The person who invented it – their last name was German. Check it out!

San Sebastian Sangria

San Sebastian Sangria
~ Mary ~
It has ‘San Sebastian’ in front of Sangria so none of you fans of Patty’s Sangria have any mis-conceptions. I’ve had this recipe ready to post for two years. I just needed the photo. This photo is not a good one, and I apologize for that. You see, it’s a major pain in the hieney when you have guests coming over, to haul out the photography equipment – lights, camera, camera stand, back drop –  and have ample time to craft a decent photo – those suckers take work! I finally decided to take an inadequate photo and just post this recipe, because I keep having to log into my account so I can make this sangria! Read more…

We love this salad and have made it multiple times in the past six weeks.  The flavors are subtle, clean and spectacular!  This is one of the absolute best ways to cook beans Ever!  And soaking them for two days really helped on the gas – Thanks for that tip Patty! Read more…

Pumpkin Risotto

~ Mary ~

Squash risotto usually doesn’t have a whole lot of squash flavor – so much so that this almost landed on the clunker pile.  At the last-minute I found this gorgeous recipe that uses Pumpkin Broth so it captures that elusive squash flavor in spades –  Genius I tell you! Read more…

Peanut Butter Pie
~ Mary ~

My apologies these aren’t the quality photos I usually produce. It had been a looong day and my iphone  just had to do.

Yesterday we had a bit of a cook-over with Patty and Katy. Good times, good food, and good company!
We all walked away with a weeks worth of meals and a peanut butter pie! This recipe came from “Hoosier Mama Book of Pie” it’s a no-bake extravaganza that is extremely rich and satisfying.
