Aunt Esther’s Potato 🥔 Pancakes

Aunt Esther and Uncle Joe lived in this cozy two family house in Brooklyn. Before we even got to the door we would smell the potato pancakes cooking. I love taking a traditional family recipe and giving it a modern twist. These gluten free potato pancakes did not disappoint!

Dump Cake

Summer always makes me think of pie. Two of my favorites are, Sweet Cherry Pie and Strawberry Apple Pie. I was looking for inspiration on Pinterest one day and came across Dump Cakes. Don’t let the name discourage you from making this. Knowing that I can dump ingredients in a bowl, bake it and serve a delicious, sweet dessert makes me love it even more.

Stuffed Pepper Stir Fry

I love stuffed peppers, but it is a big job. I usually like to roast the peppers a little before I even stuff them so they are soft, otherwise my family only eats what’s in the pepper. So, all that work for them to pick around the actual pepper. Hence, the Stuffed Pepper Stir Fry! It is much easier than the traditional stuffed peppers. It is perfect for a quick weeknight dinner.  

Ruggable

I had been looking for rugs for my home for several years. I am a bit of a neat freak, so when we had two dogs I could never keep the rugs clean. I would buy them and unless they were small, they couldn’t be cleaned. So, after a couple of months I threw them out. Unfortunately, both of our pups passed away. And my search for rugs continued.

Let’s face it, you can usually find me in the kitchen. I am always cooking and my hands are either filled with food or are wet! One thing I love is that the Alexa Show is basically hands free. I can easily state, “Alexa, add eggs to my list.”

Rainy Day Activities

I always read my mom’s blog and decided I wanted to write one for her. It’s been raining for weeks so I figured rainy day activities would be a good one.  This is what I recommend…

Ouidad

Ouidad was nice enough to let me try two of their new products before they even hit the shelves!  This is really exciting to me especially since I am such a fan of Ouidad’s products.

A trip to the Pork Store

by Alexandra Salvatore I love getting an early start on a Sunday and being the first customer at the Italian Pork Store. We got up early today and I brought my 2.5 year old son with me to experience what I grew up doing with my Mom. To my surprise they actually renovated and expanded…
