Featured Recipes

Rhubarb Oatmeal Bars

This recipe for rhubarb oatmeal bars from my grandma’s recipe box carries with it memories of avocado green ovens, matchbox cars and a grandpa I never met.

Mocha Bars

These mocha bars were one of my grandmother’s favorites to serve when friends and family would come over for coffee. The recipe is from a community cookbook compiled by the ladies sewing circle of the small rural church she attended.

Gram’s Borscht Soup

Sometimes our holiday memories involve more than just the food.  For Holly, the Ukrainian Borscht she makes each Easter is only part of the tradition. 

Falcone’s Sunday Sauce with Poached Eggs

This recipe for Falcone’s Sunday Sauce with Poached Eggs is a beautiful example of a time-honored family recipe.

Auntie Ev’s Plum Pudding

Sometimes we are blessed to add family members by choice.  These are a very special breed of people who are not related by blood and yet pull you into their lives as family.
