    June 26, 2013DishinandDishes

    If you’ve followed my blog for awhile, you know I am mildy obsessed with bruschetta of any type.  I seriously could make bruschetta and let it be my entire meal.  Toast some crostini, spread something hearty and wonderful on it and call it a day.

  • Cool Weather Gardening

    April 25, 2013DishinandDishes

    After the last two disatrous years in summer gardening, I decided to try my hand at spring and cool weather gardening with things like beets, lettuce, swiss chard and spinach.

    I have a risotto addiction. This Spring Pea Risotto formulated in my my mind the other night.  There is only one problem. I was home alone with “the boy”. The picky boy. The boy who only ate about three things until he went to school and had to eat in the cafeteria.  Then he ate four…
