Did someone say Burgers?
It’s time for burgers….
In winter we love meatloaf; in summer we love giant stuffed burgers.
You could make smaller burgers, but we like the big one.
Cut it into wedges and let the cheese ooze out of the … Continue reading..... “Giant Burger Stuffed with Mushrooms; Lunch”
Two potato recipes in one week?
Get over it….. There are more pressing issues to concern yourselves with.
This is another recipe that I have been making so long the origin is lost.

You’ve never had smoked pasta?
It is, without a doubt, the best dish of summer.

Most of the spinach was turned into soup.… Continue reading..... “Ham, Egg and Spinach Salad”
Did I mention that the chard is exploding?

When I looked the chard leaves were rather large…..
I prefer smaller chard leaves and stems – for everything but stuffing.… Continue reading..... “Stuffed Chard Leaves, the update”

Bread Baking Babes bask in the brew.
