Tropical Pancakes {Gluten-Free Recipe}

Tropical pancakes.  Does that even make sense!? Maybe not — however, as I mentioned when we dished up the Sweet and Spicy Pineapple Grilled Pork Chops, my family and I are going on a tropical beach vacation (today’s the day!), and I’ve been working tropical fruits into all sorts of recipes. by

Ginger-Citrus Pie Recipe

Ginger-Citrus Pie Recipe | Cooking On The Weekends

I guess you could say my mom is a creature of habit in the restaurant department.  At the moment, if she and my dad are out for dinner, I know exactly where they are and what my mom is ordering.  (My dad changes it up a bit.) by

Black Muscato Grape Flaugarde Recipe | Cooking On The Weekends

Sunday’s are my favorite day to cook and bake. My boys are usually running around wildly, having fun, and being especially loud and crazy.  (And when I say “boys,” that includes my husband.)  And while it warms my heart that they’re so full of joy, I don’t run wildly with them.

Friday Flowers: A Special Kind of Lily and an Almond Joy Cookie Recipe {Gluten-Free}

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

The common name for the lily flowers I’m sharing with you today is actually Naked Ladies. Naked Ladies don’t usually bring my mind to food — rather, to an amazing trip to Big Sur, California I took with my husband — then suitor ;-). by
