My Life with Nivea

  Okay, Ladies…Here is something for you!  A simple product review or…testimony, if you will. We should file this under Health and Beauty or Daily Skin Care Advice.   There is one product you need.  JUST ONE!  Some people stand on their heads and perform a ritual which may include  a mask or mud of some sort.  Nope.

The Kitchen Klinic Chronicles: Part 1

The Kitchen Klinic Chronicles: Part 1

Have you ever read some of your Grandmother’s Cookbooks?  They can be extremely entertaining!!  My mom recently gave me a book called “The Kitchen Klinic” Completed by The Women’s Club of St. Vincent Charity Hospital in Cleveland, Ohio 1936.

German Bierocks

German Bierocks

This recipe for German Hamburgers or “Bierocks” came to me from my Great Grandmother Hans (who also gave me Homemade Noodles!)  All my life I thought my mom was saying “Beer Rocks”, how funny!  Basically, if you make homemade dough, this is not a dish to do when you are in a hurry, but for the purpose […]

Sister Vicki’s Savory Oatmeal

Sister Vicki’s Savory Oatmeal

This lovely breakfast idea comes to us from Greg’s sister, Vicki, who runs marathons…  She probably is not aware of the influence she has had on my love for cooking over the past 20+ years so I just want to say Thanks!  When Greg and I first got married, I didn’t know how to do anything but […]

Chicken Pot Stickers

Chicken Pot Stickers

The other night we made Chicken Pot Stickers.  It all started when Charlotte decided to grab Won Tons off the shelf at the Grocery Store and I said, “How hard could it be?”  (something I say often). A couple days later I had some Chicken Breasts that needed to be cooked…So, I thought why not make […]

Almond Cookies of Argos

Amygdolata… What?  The only way to describe these babies is by telling you another story.  It all began one hot afternoon in June, while exploring Argos in our trusty little rental car.
