My Tim Tam Adventure

One of the things I enjoyed most about growing up in the military was the ability we had to travel the world and visit so many different countries. The world is a beautiful place and like my dad always said, “To have a friend you must be a friend”, and he always managed to find …

It’s Soup Weather!

Oh my goodness! We had such an amazingly comfortable winter and then suddenly it’s like somebody opened the deep freeze and threw us all in it. It is perfect soup weather, however, and I’ve been making a lot of it. Lentil soup was the most recent. I love lentil soup but it never turns out great for me. …

Recently I have become obsessed with cream puffs. It all began with the Triple Chocolate Cake, which is one of my family’s birthday favorites. I found this recipe in one of my Hershey cookbooks, put my own spin on it, and have been making it for about 20 years now. My kids love it, but …

Crazy March Days

A few days ago my husband and I celebrated our anniversary. We talked about what we should do and where we should have our special dinner, the final decision was to relax with a movie and take out food. We happily toasted our 34 years together with a vanilla milkshake and caramel frappe. This winter …

Raspberry Filled Chocolate Amaretto Cupcakes

We have been so busy lately that I didn’t even get a chance to bake the usual Valentine Goodies that I bake every year. I decided to take advantage of being housebound because of the impossible snow this week, and bake one of the recipes I had been wanting to try for awhile. Most people make something with chocolate and …

Welcome to Izgara!

Hello again! I have been out of town and totally neglecting my blog, but I am back and I have a super new idea. While we were away we had the opportunity to eat in several restaurants. Is it just me or do they all seem to cook the same stuff? Not only that, it …
