Here in Central PA we love our soups and one of the most popular that comes around every Fall is Chicken Corn Soup. It’s a very simple soup that is slightly sweet and salty. An Amish version calls for Rivels which is a small dumpling made with flour and milk. I personally love my soup without the ... Read More

Roasted Maple Dijon Brussel Sprouts

This recipe is an oldie but goody in my house.  If you think you don't like Brussel Sprouts I strongly urge you to try this recipe.

BOOnana Pops

By josie milano

There's something about crisp weather and the sight of black and orange that sends my sweet tooth into a frenzy.

Whole Wheat NO RISE Pizza Dough

By josie milano

Homemade pizza is one of my favorite meals to make but it takes hours for the dough to rise. When I'm craving pizza I'm not waiting hours to crush the craving! Normally, I would pick up the phone and order a pizza for delivery but my family would live on pizza if I'd let them, which would not be goo... Read More
