For those of you, and there were quite a few, who enjoyed my maple pudding cake recipe, I am including in my blog this chocolate pudding cake recipe...a family favorite, and one they even remember...my recipe has the sugar cut down from the original recipe and is still plenty sweet...a small piece with a little whip cream and you will be in dessert heaven! Several different people have shared the recipe with me through the years, and this is my version of i...

Sometimes the spirit hits that I just want  pizza with a crust, but not necessarily all the calories that go with pizza. This is when I whip up what I consider my not so calorie loaded, but just tastes so good, healthier, or what I feel is a healthier version...This is also when I appreciate having all the ingredients on hand, my simple home made tomato sauce, shredded cheese or cheese to shred, and whatever toppings I can whip up, what more could you ask f...

Sometimes I amaze myself. Sometimes I don't. When I made this loaf all those years ago and it came out perfect, that was one of those times.

This particular drink I refer to as my lunch salad, and when I mention it...

I love carrot cake..I also love my tweaked version of a Skinny Ms. recipe for muffins with carrots, but made into a bread instead...I also love coconut so added some to the recipe, optional for you! I am a firm believer that any muffin recipe can be a bread, and any bread recipe can be muffins!

I am not fond of making muffins, and only make them when sending to a specific function, otherwise it is a bread all the way for me....I also do not like muffins in d...

When I was young Log Cabin syrup was a treat in our family..we did not have it often but when we did it was extra special...it wasn't until I was quite a bit older that I even knew about VT. maple syrup...the first time I had some I was hooked...VT. "real"maple syrup is hugh in our family to this day....whenever I can fit some in a recipe, I am a happy camper, and so is my gang...when the kids were little we, of course, like a lot of people, tapped trees an...
