German Chocolate Cake (whole wheat) with Coconut Pecan Frosting – Recipe

Print PDF German Chocolate Cake – Last week for my birthday, my kids practically shoved my husband and I out of the front door while promising to watch the little ones. They said I needed to go on a birthday date and that we should go see a movie and have some fun. What I did not know was that they had a secret plan. Tristan (age 16) and Vanessa (age 14) were making a roast turkey dinner, and Eleyna (age 12) and Tia (age 3) were making me a personal German Chocolate Cake. YUMMY :D! The picture you see here is a picture of the cake that they made. Pretty impressive in my opinion! It...

Tuna Melts – Recipe

Print PDF Tuna Melts (recipe and instructions follow) – I have loved tuna sandwiches ever since I can remember. Plain old, not fried, no cheese, only mayo and pickle relish added to the tuna -tuna sandwiches. It wasn’t until I was around 12 years old that I was introduced to the idea of a tuna melt. I can still remember the day I tried them (no, I don’t remember the first time I tried everything). My wonderful mother was in the kitchen cooking and I could smell them. It was a new smell to me, a weird combination of something sweet with fish :). I wandered in to see what...

Hummus with Warm Pita Chips – Recipe

Print PDF Hummus with Warm Pita Chips (hummus recipe and video tutorial follow) – Hummus is one of the absolute easiest things in the world to make – if you have a food processor :)! This makes a really great appetizer for a party or for your family. It is also a nice healthy snack. It goes well served with pita chips, or some nice crudite-pronounced crew-di-tay (raw veggies). You can make it a day or two in advance and it will keep in the fridge for about four days after the day you make it. I like to put it on the dining table while I cook dinner for the kids to munch on...

Soft Boiled Eggs with Cumin and Brown Butter Sauce – Recipe

Print PDF Soft boiled eggs with cumin and brown butter sauce (recipe follows) – I’m not really sure if I had ever actually eaten soft boiled eggs until I met my husband Xavier. When we first got together, he would tell me about one of his favorite breakfasts (soft boiled eggs sprinkled with cumin and served with saltines and butter). It’s something his mother would always make and therefore, one of his comfort foods.  I always thought it sounded pretty good, but never was excited about it enough to make it. So, one morning my darling Xavier surprised me with breakfast....

The Best Potato Skins! – Recipe

Print PDF Potato skins are one of my very favorite junk foods. :D! They are sooooo gooood, and you can fill them with whatever you happen to have in the fridge! This is a great way to get rid of left overs too, especially meat and veggies! We have a family junk food night about once a month and these are often included. They are also really great for big get togethers because they can be assembled ahead of time and refrigerated or even frozen and then baked as needed. When I make them I always try to make a few extra and freeze them for my son. He is a 16 year old eating machine and this...
