Spicy and delicious this recipe will clear your sinuses. It’s also great with snapper!
Melissa’s favorites & the cookie I make most often.
We wrote our own wedding ceremony to create one that represented us, our independence and our love. We used the internet, our justice of the piece and a friends ceremony for inspiration and ideas. The end result was a wedding that was unique and totally “us”.
These cookies are tender and delicious. I use 5 or 6 different colors of sanding sugar for the same batch so they spruce up any cookie platter.
June 2, 2011 – Aug. 4, 2011 : My first business trip to Tel Aviv with Kevin. We took a tour of Jerusalem and visited as many local places in Tel Aviv as time would allow.
In June we decided to elope in July. We wanted to have our ceremony and the beach in Maratha’s Vineyard. We were extremely lucky and all the vendors and venues we worked with were fantastic.

This American style cheese cake will blow your mind. I don’t bother ordering cheese cake anywhere else because it will pale in comparison.
This is a great recipe if you have a dutch oven and the short ribs are so soft and tender.
Coconut cream pie without the just enough sweet coconut! Light coconut milk lacks rich coconut flavor, so skip it in favor of regular coconut milk.
These are a nod to my years in Maryland where I learned to LOVE crab!
Melissa’s favorite pie and the reason she named one of our machines… MMMPIE. This pie never has left overs.
Running the pumpkin through a food processor makes this pumpkin pie smooth and delicious.

My most requested cookie recipe, these are a easier approach to the traditional linzer tart. No holes mean’s no cookies cutters!
This is a great recipe for company because you can make it the night before and it’s real crowd please-er!
I make a double quantity of the salsa because it’s hard not to “taste” it while you wait for the fish to marinade. The colorful entrée is pretty enough to serve to company.
