My favorite Bruschetta

It's November and we are having an unusually long summer or maybe one really mild fall, however you look at the weather, the fact is my garden is still producing like crazy.  I've got tons of tomatoes and basil. And I'm looking for all types of recipes to enjoy the harvest.  This bruschetta recipe is a great way to use my "celebrity" tomatoes.  No they aren't famous, they're just a great type of larger tomato that I like to grow.  They are resistant to a number of diseases ...

Pumpkin-shaped Cheese ball

This is the perfect fall party food.  It's easy to make.  It's loved by everyone (at least everyone with tastebuds).  It's only six ingredients.  Did I mention it is super easy to make?  So if you're planning a game day watch party, tailgate or seasonal gathering, add this to the menu.  When I made this cheese ball to photograph for this post, my starving 3rd grader was stalking the cheese ball. I was afraid I wasn't going to get a photo before he made a huge ...

Homemade Caramel Apples

There are so many fall food favorites, but around here nothing tops homemade caramel apples.... except maybe those dipped in caramel and chocolate.  Making your own homemade caramel isn't hard, it's just all in the timing.  Once you've got the hang of it... you'll be making so much more than caramel apples, think of the candy possibilities.  Yum. So here's the thing about cooking sugar.  You heat it to a certain point and it's delicious, a little longer and well, it's ...

Finn’s Favorite Meatballs

If you are like me, you are always looking for weeknight meal ideas.  I thought I'd share my son's favorite meatball recipe.  Like most kids (and big kids) he loves pasta and meatballs.  This version is easy and tasty.  And what's better than, easy and tasty? Ingredients: 2 lbs. of ground beef (I use 80/20) 2 teaspoons of minced garlic 2 eggs 1 Tbs. of Italian Seasoning 1 1/2 Tbs. of minced onion flakes 1 cup Parmesan cheese, grated or finely shredded 1 cup of ...
