An Edible Cheeseboard and a Crisp Rosé from Languedoc #Winophiles

Looking for a fun way to start off your next party?  Whether around the pool, campfire or tv watching the game, this edible cheeseboard is going to be well received and the talk of the party.

I made this cheeseboard on the grill because we were poolside and it was too hot to turn on the oven but as fall approaches I have visions of making it again to serve inside.

White Lasagna inspired by The Woman in the Library

This fun murder mystery within a murder mystery was the first novel I have ever read by Australian author Sular Gentill.  It will not be the last.

The Woman in the Library

I listened to this novel, downloaded from the library onto my phone, during my daily walks.  I can't wait to listen to the next that I will be downloading as soon as I'm done listening to my current Dean Koontz novel.

Hoppin' John and a Book Review

I had the Blue Plate Special, An Autobiography by Kate Christensen on my bookshelf for quite a few years now.  I'm not positive but I think I got it from my friend Cam of Culinary Adventures with Camilla. 

Blue Plate Special

I pulled it off the shelf one day as I headed out to the pool.......

Zucchini Casserole #SundayFundayBloggers

This casserole is a great way to use up the last of your summer zucchini as the weather starts to cool a bit.  Pasta, zucchini, beef, cheese and tomatoes combine to create a comfort casserole reminiscent of the goulash you enjoyed as a kid.

Sweet Potato Pie, A Book Review and The Weekly Menu

This is the first time I have ever made or eaten a Sweet Potato Pie....Well, as far as I know.....It tastes just like a pumpkin pie, my very favorite pie, so perhaps I have had it unknowingly.  I wish I had known this a couple of years ago when COVID first hit and the stores were out of everything including pumpkin.

I was inspired to make this pie after reading The House on Harbor Hill......
