Prosciutto and Pears

I think pears might be one of the most underrated fall fruits. Apples get quite a bit of face time with the multitude of dessert and drink recipes out there and pumpkins are the poster child for Thanksgiving {which, by the way, I didn’t even know they were a fruit until about 5 minutes ago}. … Continue reading

Granny’s Brown Bread

The Irish have arrived! In celebration we made dinner for them at our house earlier this week.

One egg and half a banana mashed up will give you a few decent sized pancakes. Here I topped them with cinnamon and … Continue reading

Strawberry Rhubarb Pie

I made a pie! My first one ever. And I’m going to claim it as homemade, even though the crust is store bought. Now that I know I can handle the filling, maybe next time I’ll try the crust. Similar to scones, pies were a dessert that I was a little wary of, deciding they … Continue reading
