Pear Salad with blue cheese and vinaigrette dressing
My husband is not a salad fan, unless it is a side at dinner and even than he always goes for the soup option. So, when ever he’s on a business trip I make salads, mac in cheese and turkey dishes for myself. Some of my favorites that I grew up on. I love fruit…
Strawberry Sunrise Scones- Adapted from Baking Bites
So, I came across my favorite scone recipe yet. This tasty Strawberry Scone using orange yogurt and zest, many thanks to Baking Bites for this one. I was a bit worried when I came to a close of this recipe as the strawberries drew lots of moisture in my dough, but I added a little…

Fried Chicken- Marinated Over Night
