    Cranberry Orange Bran Muffins

    One of things I loved to do with my Grandma when I was young was to help her bake. I would stand on her kitchen chair next to her at her counter and we would bake all kinds of delicious food. I loved when she made apple pies, not for the pies but for the slices of apple that she would give me. She would put them in a very worn aluminum measuring cup and sprinkle them with cinnamon and sugar. I thought that was the best! We would also make scrumptious bran muffins. They were always moist and we ate them warm out of the oven. Now that I…

    Foolproof Crepes & Fillings

When I mustered enough courage, I turned to my kitchen guru, Alton Brown for a recipe. He did not let me down.

Ingredients: 2 Eggs 3/4 Cup milk 1/2 Cup water 1 Cup flour 3 Tablespoons melted butter Method: Place ingredients in blender as listed. Blend 7 to 10 seconds – no longer!

    Vegetable Ricotta Quiche

    When on my recent vacation I had an amazing vegetable quiche. It inspired me to try baking one of my own. This recipe is suitable for brunch, breakfast, or dinner with a green salad. I like a crisp crust, so I decided to blind bake my crust first. I think you can get away with raw dough. Let me know if you try it that way! Feel free to change the vegetables with what you have on hand. I think spinach would be a nice addition and some mushrooms. Saute all veggies first. Drain tomatoes if you choose to include them.
