? After promising gluten free pop tarts, I finally got around to posting them! It seems like something that would be hard to create/make, but I'll let you in on a little secret......it's just pie crust and jelly[...]
Finally! A break in the insanity long enough for me to write.
I bet that almost everyone out there has been forced to eat at either someone elses house or out at a public event. For the past three days I have had to eat out at a building[...]
The chili delight you see here is vegetarian, gluten-free, low-fat, high fiber and so good for you that you won't have to feel guilty in the least for how wonderful it tastes. If you make a vegetarian chili, use almost no oil in sweating[...]
Were you a longtime Gourmet magazine subscriber? Were you surprised to hear that this bastion of American cookery was going under? Did you mourn its passing a little, or perhaps even a lot? Did the Bon Appetit that arrived in its place to[...]

From An Opera Singer in the Kitchen
This week has been super hectic. I noticed I have only posted recipes and nothing about what has been going on in this house of music. Ryan started school Wednesday and it has been pretty[...]

After making this pumpkin cake for John's birthday two years in a row, I figured it was time for a change. Not that he would have minded having it again. He is pretty loyal to the things he likes and he actually initially requested it but was[...]
My husband, Michael made a wonderful Black Forest Cake for me for Mother's Day this year. My absolute favorite is chocolate, tart cherries, and whipped cream. So how can you go wrong with that combination?! Instead of[...]
