Buca di Beppo’s Chicken Limone

Back when I was a DINK (double income no kids) person I used to live for the chicken limone at Buca Di Beppo.  This delicious pan fried, perfectly moist chicken topped with a  rich lemon butter wine sauce with capers was my favorite thing to eat in the entire world.  You didn’t even need noodles… Continue reading Buca di Beppo’s Chicken Limone

Glazed Lemon Pound Cake Loaf

This lemon pound cake recipe is my new go-to whenever I need something lemony and simple.  I love that, aside from the lemon, all of the other ingredients are pantry staples for me, so I can throw it together on a whim.  I love to bring this over to a friend who is having a… Continue reading Glazed Lemon Pound Cake Loaf

Patriotic (Flag) Pie

I love making these flag pies because they are so beautiful and festive.  I’ll let you in on a little secret- they are way easier to make than they look. All you need are some star shaped cookie cutters.  I use about a 1″ one that I found at Michaels, and a few smaller star… Continue reading Patriotic (Flag) Pie

Apple Crumb Pie

This is one of my favorite and most popular pies.  I love it because it’s so simple.  You only have to make one crust, and the crumble topping is absolutely delicious. It’s the perfect compliment to the tart granny smith apples. Sometimes simple is really the best.  I love to top this with a scoop… Continue reading Apple Crumb Pie
