Acorn Squash with Sweet Sage “Butter”

I have been so impressed with how well our herb plant not only survived the move, but also how much it is thriving, even in this cooler climate. Must be all of the great sun it is getting in our very bright new (to us) kitchen. I have found good use…

Smoked Salmon Crustless Quiche, sort of

Since my last Dutch Baby venture was such a dee-licious success, I set out to create a savory version the other day. But, I couldn’t stop with that one challenge alone. Oh no, silly me decided to go for the gusto and make it grain-free too! Luckily it worked out okay, but I used ground almonds,…

Healthy Dutch Babies topped with a Chunky Blueberry-Maple Sauce

I ate it on its own as a part…

Overnight Double-the-Cinnamon Rolls

Thank you all for your great simple food ideas! I have already started enjoying some. Feel free to add in your favorites if you haven’t already. So, last week my husband bought a small tray of cinnamon buns from the grocery store … that I couldn’t eat. No, he wasn’t being…

“Buttermilk” Banana Pancakes Made with Love

Oddly enough, my husband and I had our very first date on Valentine’s Day.  I know, I know, not the best day for a first date, but it worked out well I would say. Yet, because we are frugal, we never go out on the actual day of to celebrate. There are…
