When I was a little girl growing up in the suburbs on the East side of Cleveland, there were special days when my mom, my grandmother, and I would get all dressed up and take the “Rapid Transit” (mass transit system) down to downtown Cleveland and go shopping and have lunch at the Higbee’s Department [...]
I love to make a meal out of several different kinds of appetizers… put them all out buffet-style with a stack of small white plates and allow everyone to take a bit of this and a bit of that to make a design-your-own dinner. And one of my favorite appetizers and these little meatballs served [...]
I been a fan of goat cheese for as long as I can remember. I have fond memories of this amazing salad that had goat cheese and toasted sugared walnuts in it back from when I was first living in Fort Lauderdale working my first job at Burdines Department Stores. I would specifically save up [...]

With a winter this snowy, cold, and well… just plain long- it has me craving something warm, cozy, and cheesy.

My family LOVES these creamy, cheesy, [...]
At 7:30pm tomorrow night, my family and I will be glued to the TV watching the Opening Ceremony at the Sochi Winter Olympics! Truly- we cannot wait! So just as we did for the Super Bowl- we plan to make a family party out of this special event, and set up a buffet of goodies [...]
We had such a fun weekend- celebrating the start of Chinese New Year with friends and family, as well as hosting our own Super Bowl party where I actually made two different kinds of chicken wings for the first time- and of course- my “famous” Super Bowl cake! And this week shapes us to be [...]
This coming Friday kicks off the annual Chines New Years’ festivities- a holiday that my family looks forward to celebrating! In China, many businesses close down for (at least the start of) the New Year’s holiday, and people will travel great distances to return to their family’s home village to spend the holiday together. Families [...]
My family can tell that I am starting to feel settled into our new home- because the baking and cooking has started again! This weekend I made both chocolate chip and sugar cookie bars, homemade tomato soup, chili, and these delicious blueberry raspberry muffins with a yummy crumb topping! This all while we were still [...]
