Pizza Margherita | Homemade pizza recipe for #WeekdaySupper | That Skinny Chick Can Bake

Homemade Pizza Margherita for a Quick Supper By now, many of you know about how darn picky my family is! There are very few recipe that please them all. Pizza Margherita is always a hit and so simple to make. The first time I served this pizza featuring fresh tomatoes, mozzarella and basil, it became an […]

White Chocolate Frangelico Cheesecake #CheesecakeDay

White Chocolate Frangelico Cheesecake

White Chocolate + Frangelico = Cheesecake Nirvana My daughter, Katie, orders cheesecake  practically every time we dine out. She is a big time fan. So when a group of bloggers decided to celebrate National Cheesecake Day (am I the only one who is always a day late and a dollar short when it comes to […]

Vanilla Pound Cake | Perfect topped with summer berries

Vanilla Pound Cake #TuesdayswithDorie #SkinnyTip

Vanilla Pound Cake hits the road We packed our bags and head out on our annual summer trip to visit our family. My mother-in-law, spry as can be at age 87,  just froze 8 quarts of strawberries, so I wrapped up this Vanilla Pound Cake and tucked it in amongst the suitcases. Served in thin […]

Biscoff Rolo Bars | Irresistible bars with Biscoff, Caramel and Chocolate!

Biscoff Rolo Bars #TwoSweetiePies #SkinnyTip

It’s Hugs & Cookies Time! It’s the second Monday of the month, so time to feature a recipe from Hugs & Cookies XOXO, the blog of my lovely and talented friend, Danielle. Her Biscoff Rolo Bars were at the top of my list this month. We both have a slight addiction to caramel treats…and a bit of […]

Grilled Apple Crisp #SundaySupper

Grilled Apple Crisp #SundaySupper

Grilling with the Sunday Supper Team Bill received one of those fancy, ceramic Big Green Egg grills for Father’s Day last year. You’re supposed to be able to bake on them…but we’re still trying to master basic grilling without charring our entrees to a crisp. But when grilling showed up as this week’s Sunday Supper […]

Streusel Topped Raspberry Squares

Streusel Topped Raspberry Squares

A Dessert for Everyone Bill is not a fan of the grasshopper pie I make every 4th of July. We had a new guest this year, 7 year old Evan, who was happy to pick up the slack and eat Bill’s helping. See, everyone loves that frozen dessert…except the mint phobic hubby. Anyway, to appease […]

Shrimp-Filled Zucchini Blossoms

Shrimp-Filled Zucchini Blossoms #FrenchFridayswithDorie

Memories of Tuscany My parents spent a number of summers in the Tuscan hill town of Cortona, Italy. Teaching calligraphy to University of Georgia study abroad students, my mom was housed in a quaint home in this ancient walled village. Meals for the staff, and their mooching children, were served in a monastery down the […]

Greek Salad

Greek Salad with Feta #SkinnyTip

What do you like in your Greek salad? I combed the blog looking for this Greek Salad with Feta recipe…I was certain I’d posted this old favorite. Three summers of blogging and garden tomatoes and many many Greek salads, but I soon realized I had not yet posted this simple veggie packed salad and vinaigrette. […]

Mousse Filled Angel Food Cake~

I haven’t made this recipe in years…in fact, it’s been so long, I can’t find the recipe!  I wasn’t thrilled with the quality of the mousse in the original, so this gave me the chance to revamp this cake. I chose an Alton Brown mousse recipe made without raw eggs…definitely a step up.   And this […]

Baked Beans~

  Neither Annie, of From the Bookshelf, nor I are big fans of baked beans…but our hubbies are.  Mine will occasionally come home from the grocery store with a can of the gloppy stuff; so every time I see a recipe online, I contemplate surprising him with a homemade batch.  It took Annie’s suggestion of […]

Gooey Double Chocolate Cookies

When the family starts requesting Nestle Toll House cookies, I know I’ve done too much experimental baking. But when I spied this recipe for Gooey Double Chocolate Cookies, I couldn’t resist. Can you blame me?  I figured these chocolate jewels would suffice…and I was correct!  Bill called them exceptional…and if you like chocolate, you’ll agree. […]

Chewy Gingersnaps

I  switched my go to chewy ginger cookie recipe a couple years ago.  Whether a new oven, change in water content in my butter or just serendipity, my formerly puffy gingersnaps were consistently flatter.  By adding a bit more flour and chilling the dough well, I could coax these babies into a little better form, […]

Roasted Cauliflower

RoastedCauliflower with Parmesan and Bread Crumbs

 By now, many of you know that I have a husband with a picky palate.  Slowly, over our nearly 25 year marriage, I’ve gotten him to try, and actually enjoy: broccoli, asparagus, the occasional zucchini (he still calls it cucumber!)…and just lately, cauliflower. It was this roasting method that finally swayed him.  This Roasted Cauliflower may […]

Buffalo Chicken Meatballs

Buffalo Chicken Meatballs with Blue Cheese Sauce

I love trying out new recipes on my book club…my friends are always extremely receptive…unlike my family, they will try anything. We read and discussed a marvelous book about the assassination of President Garfield…and when researching him, I found that his favorite dish was squirrel. I had plenty of offers to drop off some road […]
