As we close out one year and celebrate the beginning of another, I thank each of you from the bottom of my heart. To say 2010 has been a wonderful year would be a complete understatement. You have enthusiastically welcomed the changes that transpired as I moved to Add a Pinch in September. It’s hard Read More
Cinnamon rolls are one of my favorite things in the whole wide world. Good cinnamon rolls that is. I hate to say it, but I’m kinda picky about them. I like my cinnamon rolls moist and not too bready, with the perfect ratio of cinnamon, and with just the right amount of cream cheese icing on the top.
One of my husband’s favorite breads is a popover. Light and fluffy and oh so buttery, I have to admit, this popovers recipe has become one of my favorites as well. They are delicious with beef tenderloin, pot roast, and just about anything else you serve them with. I do have a couple of little Read More
French onion soup is one of my favorite soups, especially when the temperatures outside drop. It has always been one of those soups that I would look forward to having at restaurants, but wasn’t one I knew how to make at home when we first married. It wasn’t until our third Christmas together that I Read More
Congratulations to Rachel, comment # 32! ***** I’m sick. I’ve been fighting what I thought was just a winter cold for a while now. I knew I’d probably just picked it up from being out and about around town, at a Christmas party, ball game, or even the grocery store. To say it kicked my Read More
When it gets cold outside, I immediately start thinking of rich, hearty, comforting meals I can make for dinner. Like my grandmother’s southern chicken and dumplings or beef bourguignon. I’d planned on making an elaborate beef stroganoff for dinner last night, but as usual with the holiday rush, I was a bit behind. I arrived Read More
When the weather gets cooler, I love to sit by the fire with my family while we watch movies, read or play board games. It seems like we are just cocooned in time with our family of three all cozied up by the fire spending time together. I especially love to bring in a tray Read More

Peppermint bark is a holiday favorite around my house. We love to visit the Williams-Sonoma store and buy a tin of their peppermint bark on our trip to see Santa. It’s one of those traditions that started when Little Buddy was just a tiny fella. The peppermint bark was more for me than him at Read More
A mimosa makes a wonderful cocktail served at a breakfast or brunch on special occasions. They are one of the easiest drinks to mix and are generally well-loved. Over Thanksgiving, I came up with a special little twist on my ole favorite that I want to share with you. It’s a pomegranate mimosa. And it’s Read More
Twice baked potatoes make any meal an event! No matter how simple the other dishes I serve, when I include twice baked potatoes, I always know everyone will remember the meal. But I will tell ya, a twice baked potato alongside a perfect steak and a capri salad will earn me big smiles from my Read More
