Simple Oven Roasted Asparagus

Asparagus is a very healthy vegetable that’s also versatile in so many dishes. Fresh or cooked. It’s a unique flavor that has become very popular in the past few years. I really like this simple recipe. It brings out the natural sweetness in the asparagus. Next time you see a good bunch, grab it and make it this way.

New York Diner Blue Plate Special – Hot Open Turkey and Gravy

Growing up on Long Island, we always had Diners all over the place. In every town were at least one. Now, in my town alone, there are four! In Manhattan, it seems like there’s bunches on every street. What is great about a Diner is there are so many things on the menu. Everything comes out fresh and always so appetizing looking. They serve breakfast all day long and have “Blue Plate Specials” daily.

A Hot Open Turkey happens to be my husbands favorite menu item to order for dinner. We always grab some off his plate because they pile on the turkey and gravy. You always get a choice of two sides. This past weekend was my husbands birthday and instead of going out he asked me to make him his favorite meal from our favorite diner around the corner. This is the easiest recipe. At least the way I make it. He even said he liked mine better. Not sure if he was really hungry or he meant it but, it really did taste good and my son and I enjoyed it just as much as the Diner. Here you go, make this soon. It’s a winner!

Easter Peeps Pretzel Rods

Here’s a recipe my son and I have fun making together. Years ago, it was my daughter who shared this fun food craft with me. We like to wrap each one separately and give them as a special little treat to friends and family. Use any kind of Peep you like. However, the little chicks worked well for this recipe. They do come in all different colors. Same goes for the sprinkles. Use what you have in the house or find your favorites in stores and online.

This delectable recipe is so much fun to make with the kids. It’s an edible craft where they can use their own imagination on what to put on the white creamy chocolate. One thing is for sure, everyone including adults will love this candy treat. Have fun creating with your favorite candies and other add-ons.

Please note, I am not giving you amounts for ingredients. You decide how much or little goes on the bark. As for the chocolate. For this recipe I used half a block of white chocolate Almond Bark.

Classic Pear Lime Jello Lush

This recipe is a combination of my mom and grandma’s along with my friend Susan’s. My mom and grandma used pineapple instead of pear. Of course you can swap it out if you want. They also added sour cream. This is the most forgiving recipe. Add a little, remove a little. Seems to come out perfect every single time it’s made.

Recently we were at my friend Laurie’s house. Her sister Susan was there and she told me her version. Since the holidays are around the corner, I knew I wanted to do a little experimenting. This version came out really delicious. We serve this with the meal. If there is any leftover, we serve it again with dessert. It’s great for a luncheon or party too. When I catered, this was always on the menu at a baby or bridal shower. It’s so pretty too. Sometimes I added some extra whipped topping for decoration, along with fresh fruit. Whenever you serve this it’s sure to be a big hit.

Small Batch Baked Cinnamon Sugar Donuts

We love donuts around my house. If you have visited our site before you will see we have a few favorite baked donut recipes already up that are really delicious. The best part about a donut is, they are portable. Grab and go. The other really great part about our donuts are, they are baked instead of fried. So, they have much less fat and calories. But, still lots of great flavors. These cinnamon donuts are my husbands favorites. I like baking small batches because like fried donuts, they are best eaten the day they are made. Bake, grab and take a big bite!

Pan Seared Balsamic Glazed Salmon Fillet

Here’s a simple yet elegant recipe that will impress anyone you serve it to. The servings in this recipe is for two but it’s easily doubled. As you can see in the photo, the salmon is sitting over a bed of steamed spinach that’s been drizzled with lemon juice. My husband and I were eating alone this night and we both wanted a light meal. It was just perfect. Enjoy this with a fresh vegetable like the spinach and with a side of whole wheat pasta and your favorite marinara sauce.
