Learn how to enjoy food, cooking & entertaining. It’s not about fancy or complicated. It’s about good food. Real food. Everything in moderation. Most of the recipes are original along with the best recipes I have found from various sources.

There is nothing like a fresh brewed cup of quality coffee. There is nothing like a smooth glass of red wine. And yes…… you can eat potatoes. Potatoes are real food.

“Meals will never be good quality if the ingredients are not good quality.” 

Fall. Orange and red leaves, pumpkins, cheese fondue, apples, chili and stews, squash and cider. Really good cider comes straight from the mill. There is nothing better than a fresh cider mill doughnut and cider. Let’s not go crazy on foods with pumpkin. I stick with pumpkin doughnuts and bread.  Enjoy the recipes below. Happy Fall!
