Pizza Strata

Or personal pan pizza strata. Or pepperoni, mushroom, and caramelized onion strata with roasted tomatoes and extra cheese.  A bit wordy, no?

Chocolate Glazed Walnut Brownies

I know.  What the world needs is not one more brownie recipe.  I think perhaps finding a renewable energy source would rank above brownies…however I have the ingredients and the know how for brownies at my fingertips.  How to harness wind power and sunlight and redirect their energy to power say my car or toaster…

Peanut Butter Ice Cream

Have you eaten ample amount of ice cream and frozen treats this summer?  Gosh, I hope so.  I have made weekly trips to the Dairy Queen for a simple small twist cone dipped in chocolate or cherry, alternating from the week before.  Sitting on one of eight picnic benches that lie beneath a rickety green aluminum…
