Homemade Rye Bread with Dill


This dense and flavorful homemade rye bread with dill is perfect for sandwich making or toasting. A combination of whole wheat flour, rye flour, all-purpose flour and a bit of brown sugar makes this bread a dream for slicing...and eating!

For me, nothing is more satisfying and rewarding than making homemade bread. I love the entire process. From the blooming of the yeast (activating it by dissolving it in a warm liquid), to the mixing of the usually simple ingredients, to the rising, and ultimately the baking and the tantalizing aroma that always fills the house. It's magical.

I love a good stew recipe and I typically like share them during the cold, cold winter months. Unfortunately this post got away from me and instead of sharing it with you a month (or more) ago when I actually made it, I've decided I'm going to adopt the "better late than never" attitude for this recipe, and share it with you now, so you don't miss out.

Shortbread is my favorite type of cookie. I just love the simplicity of the ingredients, and yet its complexity of taste.

In honor of today, March 25th being National Chocolate Peanut Butter Day (#ChocPBDay), I've decided to share a recipe for something that I haven't made since my boys were little. And quite honestly, I only made them once, maybe twice, back then. But, they've not been forgotten, by me, or by them.

I've always been a salad girl, but it's only been the past few years that I've started to enjoy when fruit is included with my veggie salad ingredients.

German Beef Rouladen for #SundaySupper - Meals with Meaning


German Beef Rouladen is eye of round steak that is pounded thin, then stuffed and rolled with a mixture of cooked bacon, carrots, celery and dill pickles. They're then browned for extra flavor and braised in a sauce of wine and beef broth until they're fall-apart tender.

This dinner of German Beef Rouladen is near and dear to my heart for so many reasons. If you’ve been a regular reader of my blog, then you know that several times I’ve written a little bit about my grandfather on my mother’s side that came over on the boat from war-torn Germany. His name was Hugo.

Wine Glass for a Pastry Chef


One of my favorite things to paint are food blogger wine glasses. They make me happy because they hold sentimental meaning for the recipient...and plenty of wine too!

Since I'm a food blogger, who happens to also run a hand painted glassware business, it seems only fitting that my favorite things to paint would be wine glasses (or any other type of glass item) for other food bloggers.

Does March come in like a lion, and out like a lamb? Or does it come in like a lamb and go out like a lion? I always get those two mixed up. Kind of like starve a cold and feed a fever, or feed a fever and starve a cold? I'm never quite sure.
