Blueberry Corn Muffins-3
20 Apr: Blueberry-Corn Muffins with Maple Butter

Here’s a muffin recipe for your weekend breakfast line-up!  Tender, moist blueberry-corn muffins served warm with maple butter. Is it weird that I used to hate blueberries?  Don’t ask me why because I have no memories of what might have caused it, but I spent most of my life telling…

Gruyere and Thyme Cheese Straws

Cheesy, herby, crispy Gruyere and thyme cheese straws for the win!  Store-bought puff pastry transforms into a perfect appetizer with a glass of wine or beer or a cocktail or any drink you want, OR EVEN BETTER, a perfect dipper for a bowl of soup.  Yes, please. These can be…

Sausage Stuffed Mushrooms-3
14 Apr: Sausage Stuffed Mushrooms

Tender mushrooms stuffed with a wine-y sausage-mascarpone mixture.  And cheese!  Plenty of cheese for us dairy-fiends.  Warn your tastebuds because it’s a given that you will eat a molten hot mushroom straight out of the oven and burn your mouth off.  I’m sorry, but it’s just gonna happen. I almost…
