Chocolate Filled Rose Cakes

What better time to use a rose muffin pan than for Valentine's Day. I made my Valentine some mini rose bundt cakes, filled with fudge, because Valentine's Day must involve chocolate.

Sweet Potato Peanut Stew

I can't believe that it's taken me this long to make this recipe. Sweet potato peanut stew is a delicious savory bowl of winter comfort food.  It's a one pot meal with sweet potatoes(yams), greens, garbanzo beans and peanuts for protein.

Pumpkin Cheesecake with a Gingersnap Crust

It's fall and pumpkin flavored everything is back again.  I'm a big pumpkin fan myself.  I've been making my pumpkin pie smoothie every morning for breakfast for the last month.

Basic Tomato Sauce

If you grow your own tomatoes, you probably have more ripe tomatoes than you can eat at this point in the season.  This is when I start making pasta sauce, to freeze for the winter.  I prefer a basic sauce that I can flavor later, with basil and garlic or chili powder, depending on what I'm going to make for dinner.

My Blog is Back!

My blog is back!  I took a break during the Christmas holidays because I was just too busy to post.  Then, when I found some time to post a recipe, my blog was no longer visible to the public.  I've been going round and round with Blogger and GoDaddy (it's always the other guy's fault) trying to fix the problem when I decided to get some professional help.  I am, admittedly, very ignorant of the technical aspects of this.  After a month of phone tag with a recommended IT guy, I went back and tried to fix the problem myself.  After ignoring the problem for way too long, and with some help from a different GoDaddy help line guy, I was finally able to fix the problem.  

Here's what I didn't get to post:

Apple Roses

I've admired these apple roses for a long time and finally decided to challenge myself to make them for Thanksgiving. They're not as difficult as they look, and they're delicious.

Lentil Soup

The first big rain storm of the season rolled in last weekend and my dinner of choice for rainy nights is soup.  I like to curl up with a big bowl of comforting soup and a good book. I was surprised to discover that I had never posted a recipe for a lentil soup, one of my favorites.  So here is my simple, easy lentil soup recipe for rainy days.
