Spicy Saucy Halibut

Scott and I had a dinner party last weekend and have been eating leftovers all week.  We are officially "lambed out" and wanted something other than meat for dinner last night.  I discovered this recipe for halibut in another Junior League cookbook and found it's worth repeating.  As the title suggests, it's a bit spicy...

Pesto Sauce

We had some basil in the garden that needed to be used, and I thought...I'll make some pesto.  California Fresh has a simple recipe and it turned out well so I wanted to share.  With the holidays upon us, it's nice to have some more simple dinners in mind.  I used whole wheat pasta, and...

Bourbon Yams with Pecan Topping

Just in time for Thanksgiving!  This recipe is a Thanksgiving classic from our family.  My mom used to love cooking from Junior League cookbooks - she said the recipes always turned out well.  This recipe is from the Oakland-East Bay Junior League and it's wonderful.  I must admit that it's one of the better ways...

Apple Crisp

Apples are in season and it's the perfect time of year to make an apple crisp.  Scott enjoys a good crisp and I do too.  Ina Garten's Old-Fashioned Apple Crisp is one I've made in years past and it's worth repeating.  It's good!  I love the citrus in this crisp and the oatmeal is a...

French Breakfast Puffs

French Breakfast Puffs are a Sweet Family tradition.  Scott has enjoyed these since he was younger and I was introduced to them shortly after I married Scott.  They are a treat!  Baked instead of fried, they taste a bit like a butter glazed donut with sugar and cinnamon.  Serve for brunch or have as an...
