Earlier this week, I made my Simple Tomato Soup and peeking out, here and there in the pics is my Parmesan Crusted Crostini. I promised I’d post the recipe, so here it is, and when I served that soup, the Parmesan Crusted Crostini pretty much stole the show.

I had the idea of making Chocolate Meringue Brownie Cake for ages before I made the leap, and I think this has got to be the pinnacle of Chocolate Meringue Brownie Cakes. I hope you’ll leap with me because this cake is everything!

I wasn’t sure whether to call these Old Fashioned Marinated Carrots or Classic Marinated Carrots, but either way they’re delicious, especially in the Summer. They’re cool and refreshing. The Marinade is almost like a tangy Catalina (or “French” dressing, if you’re as old as I am) and they’re the perfect thing for a summer picnic or potluck.

Cheese Tortellini & Asparagus in Brown Butter Sauce is super simple, super fast and super delish! It also has just a bit of a sophisticated air about it, which means it’s perfect fast meal for a family dinner or great if a friend or two drops by. “Would you like to stay for dinner?” “Umm, yes!”

I know I’ve been posting a few “basic” recipes lately (hiya hard-boiled eggs) but I’m fixin’ (sorry) to cook up a big old pot of my Cheer’s Boston Baked Beans & thought this would be the perfect time to talk about Brining Beans Traditional or Instant Pot Methods. You’ll see I’ve been hoarding pics of beans soaked using different methods from the last few times I’ve made beans.

I don’t know what possessed me to make Homemade Pop Tarts the other day. Hausfrau gone wild? Seriously, I never really liked pop tarts. Oh, I like the idea of them, a jammy filling nestled between two sheets of flakey, buttery pastry but the commercial variety just never did it for me.

Sometimes you just gotta have a steak. Like for Father’s day. And why not go big and bold on the flavors, like a New York Strip Steak with Southwestern Rub? Just a little something to give that steak a bit of a spark.

Sometimes I get a little carried away at the store with my favorite veggies. I buy a big bag of them, and before I know it, I realized they need to be cooked A.S.A.P. Hello Brussels, I’m talking about you! And that’s how my Zesty Pickled Brussels Sprouts were born.
