Lemon Curd Bars with Animal Cracker Crust

Lemon Curd Bars with Animal Cracker Crust

The fruit of the poor lemon may be impossible for some to eat in its truest form. But juice it, zest it, add some butter, sugar, and eggs and I’ll show you something  impossible NOT to eat. Granny’s lemon curd by itself is quite possibly […]

Blueberry Dumplings with Lemon Whipped Cream

Remember the cool kid in grade school whose name was maybe Chase or Chad? And then you found out that he was named after his great uncle or some such person and his first name was actually Chester? These blueberry dumplings have a little something […]

Fruited Mint Iced Tea – A Tea you don’t want to Pass Up

Fruited Mint Iced Tea – A Tea you don’t want to Pass Up

I can’t tell you how many times I have flipped RIGHT past Granny’s Fruited Mint Iced Tea recipe. Iced Tea was always a staple in our fridge growing up, a product of our southern matriarch. Every night our options were water, iced tea or milk. So […]

Chocolate Strawberry Tart – Because Guilt is Always in Season

This Chocolate Strawberry Tart is bittersweet for me. Not the actual flavor, mind you – that is pure sweetness. But the memory of this recipe is bittersweet. I have a very vivid memory of visiting Granny one summer and she was so excited to make […]

Ambrosia-Fit for the Gods and Your Dinner Table

Ambrosia-Fit for the Gods and Your Dinner Table

The first time I had Ambrosia salad was at an all-you-can-eat buffet with Granny. It was probably an early bird special kind of buffet. And, I’m wondering why people make jokes about these early bird buffets. All the food you want, including dessert, before 6 […]

Cranberry Pineapple Salad- The Throwback is Back

Cranberry Pineapple Salad- The Throwback is Back

Thursday is trash day here in Natick, MA. So on Wednesday’s I go through the fridge and get rid of anything that looks gelatinous, has congealed, or has anything to do with mold.  And occasionally, my Tupperware even gets tossed. It can be a very […]
