Chocolate Mint Brownie Dessert


In honor of St. Patty’s Day!

How do I describe St. Pat’s Day at UMR (Univ. of MO.-Rolla) where my husband went to college and where I showed up for every St. Patrick’s day to help celebrate the holiday.

Well, green food from the frat house, green mashed potatoes, milk, beer, all the guys sporting beards (or trying to – took my husband all year to grow one) and helping to build (or add the paper) to the floats that were all mechanical and unbelievable; but what would you expect from an engineering school.

So, when bunco rolled around […]

Coconut Oatmeal Cookies


Crunchy, coconuty, delicious, what more can I say.

I don’t talk about failures very often because I don’t have a lot of them. When I do make a mistake, I never make it again. Let me tell you what recently happened.

When we went to Austin back in February for our grandson, Frankie’s, first birthday celebration I took along some beautiful little caterpillar sugar cookies all decorated with green royal frosting, yellow polka dots along with eyes and even little mustaches. Four of our six grandsons were at the party and they loved the cookies (not sure if Frankie […]

Super Juicy Yogurt Raspberry Gugelhupf a la Jeanny


So what’s a gugelhupfform anyway?

Well, a gugelhupf is a cake made in a gugelhupfform pan and what is that pan? Well it’s a German made pan that pre-dates the American bundt pan. The Gugelhupf pan is usually shallower than our bundt and the flutings are at an angle, producing a swirl effect. Mine happens to be mini pans, 12 little beautiful swirled pans.

A Gugelhupf is a light, yeasted marble cake baked in a circular bundt mold but so many recipes I found were nothing more than bundt cakes. Bottom line, I had this $34 pan that I […]

Beef Hash and Eggs


Put an egg on it!

Did you grow up eating hash (not that kind)? I remember having it once or twice as a kid but it wasn’t something on our weekly menu. I remember working with a girl decades ago (that’s a long time) and remember her telling me she cooked the same thing each week. Meatloaf for Monday night supper, chicken for Tuesday, maybe burgers for example for Wednesday and she would repeat the meals the next week.

I don’t repeat meals often and I have this blog to thank for that because I’m always trying to come […]

Cucumber Zucchini and Pineapple Salad


Healthy spiralized noodles.

I don’t know if spiralizers are as popular as the Instant Pot or Air Fryers but mine as been in my pantry a little too long without being used. So, if you have one and it’s been neglected, get it out and try this recipe.

This recipe can be made with or without the oil. It’s not that much oil if you decide to use it and won’t wreck your diet for sure.
