Pumpkin Pie Muffin Recipe

On Halloween, the Irish carved turnips into jack-o-lanterns instead of pumpkins. This was something I heard on the History channel. My least favorite ingredient is pumpkin. It’s not that I dislike it; it’s just that I don’t love it. However, I have been experimenting more with pumpkin lately, and this made me eager to make… Continue reading Pumpkin Pie Muffin Recipe

A Healthy Shrimp Roll Recipe

Janet selected the recipe this week, and her choice was a Lobster Roll. The only thing that says summer to me is excellent seafood, or more specifically, shellfish. Shellfish is my favorite food – shrimp, lobster, mussels, and my famous littleneck clam. I’ll eat it all, no matter what form you prepare it in. This… Continue reading A Healthy Shrimp Roll Recipe

Grilled Cheese and Tomato Soup Recipe

Who wouldn’t be excited about grilled cheese sandwiches? Sweet caramelized onions and spicy pepper jack cheese are added to a humdrum grilled cheese, as… Continue reading Grilled Cheese and Tomato Soup Recipe

Currently, his wife is undergoing chemotherapy (she is expected to make a full recovery), and we decided to put together a care package of food for them after the latest round. Not only was I happy to do… Continue reading Swedish Apple Cake Recipe

A Take on Morning Cookies

Jennifer chose this week’s recipe. To me, a recipe that calls for eating a cookie for breakfast is worth trying. In essence, they are cookie muffins crossed with healthy cookies. They are soft and cakey cookies made from whole wheat pastry flour, rolled oats, bran cereal, canola oil, pureed carrot baby food, sugar, and a… Continue reading A Take on Morning Cookies
