  • Bacon Wrapped, Garlic Stuffed Pork Roast

    Bacon Wrapped, Garlic Stuffed Pork Roast

    I decided to share this simple and easy way to jazz up a boneless pork roast. I started making these years ago and have tried a few different variations. It always includes a little mustard for tang, a little something sweet (brown sugar, maple syrup or honey) and a little touch of salty via the […]

  • Reuben Casserole

    Reuben Casserole

    This yummy, comfort food recipe came to me from my long time friend Mary. She always made it for friends birthdays and we couldn’t wait to have it. After years of begging she handed it over. Since then I make it every once in awhile just because it is stick to your ribs good, makes […]

    Tulip, Iris, Crocus – Colored Pencil

    Spring flowers always lift the spirit after a cold, long winter. With so many colors and textures to enjoy, I have been working on some of my favorites – Tulips, Iris and Crocus. This sunny tulip is a warm welcome to spring… Iris will not be blooming here for a few more weeks, but I […]

  • Fossile Hunting

    Fossile Hunting

    Today was sunny and almost 60, a beautiful day. Took a walk to a little shale bed near my house. Did a little fossil hunting and took a walk through the the woods. These are some of my favorite shots. Found some very cool teal wood… and some cool lichens and moss… Liz

  • Manditory Walk in the Woods

    Manditory Walk in the Woods

    With all that is going on, it is easy to let your work, or your home life, and all the other things happening in the world right now… consume you. I was instructed, by my boss, to get outside immediately and go for a walk. He didn’t have to tell me twice.

  • Dorchester Lake

    Today the sun was out, it was almost 60 degrees and for the first time it really started to feel like spring. To take advantage of the beautiful weather my friend and I decided to get out and continue our journey on the Broome County Hiking Challenge. We decided to head up to Dorchester Lake […]

  • Peanut Butter Swirl Brownies

    Peanut Butter Swirl Brownies

    Today I am sharing my recipe for homemade peanut butter swirl brownies. I recently made them for a friend and was reminded how good they are. These are so much better than any box brownie mix and the peanut butter swirl really kicks them up a notch.  Peanut Butter Swirl Brownies 350 degrees; 20-25 mins.  […]

  • Daffodil – Colored Pencil

    Daffodil – Colored Pencil

    Today’s “botanical bright” is Daffodils! Now I’m really longing for spring.  Daffodils (Narcissus) really are true signs of spring. I get so excited once the snow melts and you can see the tips of their leaves sticking up out of the ground. Once that happens you know that spring has finally arrived.  I love to […]

  • Bacon Wrapped Cocktail Weenies

    Bacon Wrapped Cocktail Weenies

    Yup, were wrapping stuff in bacon again. Can you really ever have enough bacon? I think not. This simple party appetizer came from one of my best girl friends years ago. She was looking for a quick and easy dish to bring to a party we were having. We all loved them and history was […]

  • Flowering Dogwood – Colored Pencil

    Flowering Dogwood – Colored Pencil

    Today I have a third piece for what I’m dubbing the “Botanical Brights” collection. I must have spring on my mind because today’s piece is Flowering Dogwood (Cornus florida).  I love Dogwood trees because of their open, airy canopy. They are a perfect mid-sized tree in the landscape. Dogwoods grow fairly well here in the […]
