My best friend from college and I try and visit each other once a year. Sometimes by ourselves, sometimes with our husbands and kids.  We have so much fun and gab away and laugh until we’re crying and our stomachs hurt.  There is usually quite a bit of wine at our annual get-togethers.  Beth and …

I don’t even know where to start with this post.  This is the kind of food that is just good old comfort food, plain and simple.  It’s homey, hearty, down-home delicious.  And it is so easy to make. Here I go with another Ohio story.  When we visit my husband’s family, we stay with his …

I love bran muffins, and I used to eat one every day for breakfast.  Seriously, I did.  I didn’t make them, I got them at a local French bakery in St. Paul, Minnesota.  In fact, I would buy them all up and freeze them so that I always had one on hand.  Years before that, …

I am not a very good baker.  My friend Beth is though.  I already shared her coffee cake recipe in an earlier post.  I was up in the Twin Cities recently and stayed with her a few days.  For breakfast each morning, I had one of her muffins.  Pumpkin muffins with chocolate chips and walnuts. …
