Cary, NC — As the weeks stretch into months of staying home, we found some fun in picking fresh strawberries at DJ’s Berry Patch, located nearby in Apex off of Davis Drive. When you buy them this fresh, they need to be eaten quickly, and our favorite choice is strawberry shortcake.

Cary, NC- On Christmas morning, I like to pop an eggy-cheesy casserole in the oven and let it bake while everyone is opening presents.

Ever since our kids flew the coop, my husband and I have been enjoying making food that we like and eating at all kinds of crazy hours, many times as late as 9 PM.

Here’s an easy recipe for biscotti that we made recently; simple ingredients and cooking methods, and you don’t have to be from Italy to make them.
Who loves cheesecake? We do, and our good friend Jane made this one for a St Patrick’s Day dinner, but really it’s great for Spring or Summer. The fresh zing of lime coupled with creamy cheesecake is a great combination. And being Italian and from New York, we just know she knows her way around a good cheesecake recipe. This one won’t disappoint and she swears it’s easy to make.
