**This post is sponsored by Dave’s Killer Bread. All opinions are mine. With it being Sunday and a heat wave of 100+ temperatures in southern California, our dinner menu becomes slightly limited.  I certainly don’t want to cook or bake or even grill today and have chosen as part of my religious commitment to not […]

Roasted Tomatoes

Ever since I discovered you could roast tomatoes, I have been in tomato heaven.  I have already roasted 5 pans of tomatoes.  And amazing enough all of the tomatoes were from my garden.  I planted about 10 tomato plants this year but the most prolific were the Roma tomatoes.  Romas make perfect roasted tomatoes because they are […]

Lemon Basil Infused Soda

I am a collector of recipes.  Most recently I saved a recipe for infused drinks and then decided to make my own, starting with this lemon basil infused soda.  Pinterest has become my salvation from clutter but I still tear a few recipes from the printed pages of magazines.  We have a few magazines that […]

Fresh Tomato Soup

Probably my favorite soup in the whole world is tomato soup.  Often it comes from a can but after making this fresh tomato soup, with all its amazing goodness, I don’t know if I can ever go back to canned.  Fresh tomato soup is made from just that fresh picked tomatoes, fresh herbs, cream, broth, […]

Cherry Berry Jelly

Have you ever made cherry berry jelly before?  I had not.  Craig and I were given a couple buckets of cherries from his mother’s trees.  That’s way too many to eat, tummy ache for sure.  So I started to think about what can you do with a bucketful of cherries.  There is the traditional cherry […]

This is another wonderful way to jazz up boxed brownies – make chocolate mint brownies.  Now I know you think I am talking about adding mint flavoring to the box brownies mix but I am really talking about adding the real deal.  I have an herb growing in my backyard and it is a chocolate […]

Tuesday night, I came home uninspired and with no desire […]
