A while back, I promised my favorite cranberry sauce... without further ado, I present to you My Easy, Traditional Cranberry Sauce with A Very Special Twist!  So what is this special twist?   I discovered it's fantastic with zested tangarine!  If you have a difficult time finding tangarine, it's still wonderful with zested orange.

I know you and yours will love this easy, dependable and delightful version of traditional cranberry sauce as much as we do!

Spooky Halloween Ghosts and Ghouls White Chocolate-Coated Pretzels


I don't care for gory Halloween decorations and treats, so I fell in love with these adorable and scrumptious spooky white chocolate-coated pretzels when I first saw them on the internet.  I had so much fun making them with my grandson!  We chose to use chocolate chips for the eyes, rather than the candy eyeballs as suggested in the original recipe; however, either are truly cute.

I love how easy these delightful and delectable ghosts and ghouls are to make, and you will too.  Plus, who doesn't love sweet and salty!

                                                  EEK! Watch Out...
                                             They're Gonna Gobble Us!

These creamy, peanut butter and Nutella no-bake bars are the perfect after-school, or anytime, treat! With the chocolate graham crackers adding a little texture and the chocolate glaze as the perfect coating, peanut butter lovers will think they've discovered heaven!

Easy enough for kids to make, this is a great way to get them involved in their own snacks and away from the electronic devices!  Best to keep these delectable bars in the back of the fridge, as they are just too tempting (for all ages)!

Crunchy, Chopped Fresh Summer Veggie Salad and A Real Smok'n Cookout!

My son recently ordered a custom smoker.  We thoroughly enjoyed being his guinea pigs for all the marvelous goodies he's so passionately produced on that smoker (which I dubbed "Ye Ole Smokey")!  Our first tasting was the Mother's Day cookout.  It was so great, the guys asked to be reinvited for more smok'n on Father's Day.  All this in preparation for a huge cookout in June with a Dallas TV show theme.  Everything that came off that smoker was unbelievable!  Hats off to my son, "J.R.," the Pitmaster!

My take-along dish Father's Day was this fantastic, crunchy veggie salad, which I'd been tempted to make for some time.  Well, I can tell you that it was a big hit, for those who were okay with a little raw onion, that is...read on!

                                             Fresh and Ready To Be...
                                                 Dressed and Tossed!

BLT Salad Whole-Grain Tandoori Naan Pizza

There are two things I would normally avoid like the plague...doughnuts* and pizza.  But now, with this BLT Salad Naan Pizza, I can indulge without guilt

Satisfying without being heavy, this pizza is so easy, it can be enjoyed when you need something in a hurry.  It's delicious warm pizza style or cold folded into a wrap.  I love either with sliced grape tomatoes or sun-dried tomatoes.  The spicy piquancy of the blue cheese and the slight tanginess of the creamy goat cheese offer an intriquing combination of flavors.

                                         Yay! Pizza Loaded with Pleasure...
                                                   Without The Guilt!
