What's on the Menu?

I truly love cooking and baking (I really am my mother's daughter). One of my dreams will always be to open a bakery and/or coffee shop with baked goods. Not many people know this, but my mom had her cake company out of our home when I was little and she made the most incredible cakes for my sister and I growing up. To this day, my favorites have to be my Teddy bear that sat up, the infamous Barbie cakes and drum roll please... my pink Ninja Turtle Cake!!!

So, I thought I would do weekly posts about what I am cooking and/or making.

-Steak and garlic shrimp with green beans and
garlic dill mashed potatoes

Pesto Pasta
-penna pasta with chicken spinach sausage, fresh green beans,
peas and basil pesto sauce.

Chocolate Cupcakes
-GF chocolate cupcakes with homemade
chocolate sour cream frosting and white chocolate shavings


  1. Are we not in the same nursing program? Where do you get the time/energy to do this?

    All hail Melissa, queen of culinary delights! Do you wear you danskos as chef shoes in the kitchen??

  2. I don't like the idea of this. Some of us consistant readers don't get to eat such fine cuisine.....Unless you are just plating lean cuisines really well.
