I love spicy food!  When we used to live in California, there was a wonderful Cajun restaurant in Redondo Beach that served delicious Cajun food.  Yes, it was as good as New Orleans, maybe because the owners were from Louisiana!  Here in Cape Cod, my mouth waters for Cajun spices along with red beans and…

In the summer, I still crave comfort food from my Italian heritage.  Sometimes, on a damp cooler summery evening, it is nice to have something that tastes like you have been cooking all day.  I have even been known to toss all of these ingredients into the crock pot and let them simmer away on…

I am not quite sure where Spring went yesterday.  It was rainy, cold and a blustery 47 degree F.  My 4 year old daughter was home with a fever and I was busy putting back the pieces after a pipe in the wall started leaking water into our bathroom.  The day was filled with phone…

This was a huge hit for dinner!  It was quick, easy and delicious.  I made two quiche for dinner.  One had only bacon and cheese for the kids.  The other was a rustic bacon and mushroom quiche that my husband and I shared!  Serve this quiche with a side salad and fresh strawberries.  I hope you and…
