German Hamburgers (Frikadellen)

The original hamburger, these are served like a flattened meatball with some steamed string beans and salad. I also like to use this recipe to make Swedish meatballs (but omit the paprika). My Aunt in Hamburg, Germany taught me this recipe and I’ve been making them ever since. Serve with steamed string beans and tossed […]

Cheesecake Banana Bread

Try this delicious twist on classic banana bread! Banana bread reminds me of visiting grandma and helping her in the kitchen. I can almost smell the sweet bread now and taste the warm spiced bread with a hint of that banana goodness. I didn’t think grandma’s tried and true recipe could be beat, but this […]

Fresh Salmon Cakes

Salmon cakes are one of my go-to emergency meals. Every once in a while I like to use fresh salmon. Salmon is one of those products, like chicken, that’s very easy to get into a rut with. People generally find a few recipes that work for them, and just stay with those, but this fairly […]

Homemade Granny Cake

I think of my grandmother every time I make this! We love all of the cakes our grandmother made for us, but if we had to (haaaad to) choose favorites, this one, lovingly referred to simply as “Granny Cake,” would be our top choice. It always turns out perfectly (it’s never, ever dry) and has […]

We love finding meals that are easy to put together after a busy day errands, work, and kid shuffling. This parmesan crusted pork chop is exactly what we’re looking for: simple, tasty, and with […]

Apple Butter Pie

Move over, pumpkin pie. There’s a new fall favorite in town! ‘Tis the season for all things pumpkin. Pies, lattes, cookies, the list goes on and on. Don’t get me wrong, I love tasty pumpkin treats as much as the next person, but I think I may have a new favorite autumn pie… Apple Butter! […]

Green Chile Chicken- Stuffed Spaghetti Squash

Go and get seconds, no need to feel guilty about this dish… Pasta dishes are some of our favorite, just because they can be so versatile and delicious, but we don’t love the calories that come along with them (…nor does our body, sadly). Thankfully, there’s a tasty alternative to our beloved “noodles” that we […]

Chocolate-Covered Strawberry Brownies

There’s no dessert more decadent and romantic than chocolate-covered strawberries— or so we thought, until we made these fudgy brownies studded with chocolate chunks and topped with fresh strawberries and rich chocolate sauce. The thing you’ll really swoon over? These chocolate-covered strawberry brownies are as easy to make as they are scrumptious. We started with our favorite […]
