Applesauce cake with Caramel Frosting

Today is election day. It is very important to exercise your right to vote. That is a right that came because of the sacrifices of our veterans. Friday is Veteran’s Day. My dad was in the Navy, my husband, aka the Butcher, was in the Army and my brother-in-law was also in the Army. I […]

Basil Pesto

I love having an herb garden. Many times, I have beautiful herbs but I don’t take full advantage of them. Basil is one of the herbs that gets overlooked. I like to make a Caprese salad–sliced tomatoes, topped with sliced Mozzarella cheese and basil with a viniagrette dressing drizzled over the top, but I still […]
