Well, we couldn't resist taking the girls to Disneyland last night, so the DB Challenge will be coming (don't ask what happened all the other nights this month)!
Eggplant is something that, I think, if you didn't grow up eating it, is weird- it's bitter, it has weird seeds, it gets all brown. I can honestly say when I was growing up, we ate eggplant next to never. My mom is the best, but she worked full time and wasn't really the type … Continue reading Eggplant Parmesan
While I was in college and for a couple years after while I was working, I lived at home with my parents. Often on Saturdays, my mom and older brother and I would meet up for lunch, a lot of times at a nearby soup-and-salad buffet (all-you-can-eat is less evil when it's salad, right?).

I put it in the pan, pleased that it was still … Continue reading TWD- Berry Surprise (Pan)Cake

You'd enjoy a home-cooked meal, right? Well, actually in our area, the missionaries have a place to go for dinner almost every … Continue reading Talerine Beef Casserole and Molten Chocolate Cake
Well, like the TWDers, once I saw this week's pick of Savory Corn and Pepper Muffins, I thought to make chili. But alas, it was 85 degrees here yesterday, and my husband offered to grill chicken instead, so we had sweet corn muffins instead of pepper. Chosen by Rebecca of Ezra Pound Cake, one of … Continue reading TWD- Sweet Corn Muffins
You probably came here looking for the French Pear Tart. I actually wasn't going to make it as I despise pears. I did have intentions to make last week's Tall and Creamy Cheesecake because there is nothing I love more than cheesecake. Except maybe sleep.Yes, last night when I was going to make the cheesecake, … Continue reading TWD
