We love this classic Shrimp Scampi. My family loves lots of sauce and lots of lemon, so I have increased the lemon juice and the wine from the original recipe.
We never had spaghetti and meatballs at my house growing up. My Mom had a meat sauce recipe from her Grandmother and that was the staple in our house. Rob grew up with spaghetti and meatballs. I’m pretty sure spaghetti and meatballs is the first meal I ever ate that […]
We do love our bread. This is a softer and sweeter bread than my other recipe. These directions use a stand mixer, but you can also make this bread without a mixer. Just bring the dough together in a large bowl until it forms a rough ball. Then you will […]

This is an absolutely amazing recipe adapted from the cookbook “Cooking from Quilt Country” by Marcia Adams that was originally published in the late 1980’s. There are many great “old-fashioned” recipes in the book and this is one of my favorites. The best time of year to make this is […]
