A Tipsy Hot Mocha

Cannoli Cheesecake

Foolproof Dark Chocolate Fudge

Who doesn’t have fond memories of their grandmother or their mother standing over the stove tending to a big pot of fudge for the holidays.  I know I do.  I don’t have the best track record when it comes to making fudge.  On multiple occasions I have waited days, yes days for it to “set”.  Which of course it never more »

Bacon Onion Jam

  Spread this Bacon Onion Jam on your grilled cheese for a yummy change and to bump up your ho-hum soup and sandwich night up a couple notches.  I like to use sharp cheddar cheese and a granny smith apple.  My husband’s favorite is ham, smokey Gouda and bacon onion jam.  This jam is also perfect used as an appetizer. Spread more »

Chocolate Chocolate-Chip Muffins
