Culinary Challenge Week #26

Welcome back to the culinary cooking challenge! And this week we tackled Sleepy Hallow. Let’s get to it! I mean it’s creamy and fishy, so yeah it was amazing. Not the best clam chowder ever(that I got while visiting Door County, WI. read here) but still very good. And it was even better with these […]

Everything’s Pumpkin

Some of my favorite fall recipes… …Thus far anyway. I think as soon as October hit everything I cooked baked or others made was pumpkin infused, spiced or shaped. And I am pretty sure my sister(my official taste tester is done with fall foods) When my sister moved in with me the first of the […]

Yellowstone Trip Part Two

Here we go again! If this post(and last week’s doesn’t make you want to visit the West nothing will) And then my Mom and sister drove up and down the Teton Pass just because it was there. And that’s a wrap! It was a much needed vacation and was probably the most beautiful thing I […]
