Recipe Box, Ryan’s Italian Tomato Pie

I need to pay attention when people are cooking in my kitchen


“Hey Mom, you’re missing a great blog moment…”


“Whoa, what?!”  I gasped, as I grabbed my camera and ran to the kitchen


“Why didn’t you tell me!” click, snap, click, snap


“Oh, that looks so good, what’s in there?

Ricotta, spinach,  garlic, tomatoes, a little balsamic drizzle….

Needless to say, it was scrumptious


Yes, I know, I am really lucky to have handsome men cooking for me 🙂


Super Boy made some  Pepper Poppers!  Apparently it’s a hot job… out, you will get put to work around my house~


Did you know you can toss the corn in the oven along side another dish and bake it right in the husk?

Bake at 350 for about an hour and you will have perfectly cooked corn.  Sometimes I husk it first and put it in a pan covered with foil so I don’t have to deal with husking it when it’s hot…either way it is such a great way to cook corn.  Extra bonus is that it stays hot for a while, so it is great for buffets.
