Here is a recipe for one of my all time favorite winter soups, chicken tortilla. I think I may even like it a bit more than chili…but shhhh, don’t tell my husband.   Before you get too scared by the long list of ingredients, let me tell you that it is super easy and very […]

I always found that my pie crust were either hit or miss. Sometimes they were great and other times not so good. I love buttery pie crust that are flaky and I now have a recipe that produces them perfectly ever time. I found a great pie crust is less about the recipe and more […]

Last weekend I had the opportunity to take a road trip with my aunt and my mom to Nelson WI. for… you guessed it, PIZZA! I think this was the one and only time I have ever crossed state borders for no other reason than to eat pizza. And I must say, it was defiantly […]
