The Girl Who Cried Wolf {Chocolate Kahlua Cake Drizzled with Kahlua Ganache and Kahlua Icing}

I am she…the one who cried wolf. The one who has said at least ten times or so here on S&C that this is the BEST something or other EVER! But what if it is? Will you believe me this time? Have I whittled away your trust? I sure hope not because the only loser in this equation is YOU if that is so.

Be Kind, Unwind {And Less Guilt Foods to Help You Muscle Through Your Resolution}

Hi Friends,

Thanks for putting up with my lazy but appropriate re-posts for the beginning of this year. Obviously, my resolution was NOT to post more new stuff because that resolution would be long out the door.

A Parade of Soups to Warm You Up

Is it freezing where you are…literally? So much of the country right now is under so many feet of snow…and a nice, hot bowl of soup may be just what is called for, and perhaps a Hot Buttered Rum to boot or a one way ticket to somewhere warm.  If I were near you, I would gladly bring you over a pot of one of my soups…I love to make soup. It’s therapeutic if you ask me.

So here they are in all of their glory, my semi-famous S&C soup line-up…
Sausage and Kale Soup with potatoes and carrots…so full of heartiness that it will surely knock you out of your winter blues.

Striving for Mediocrity and My Low-Cal/Low-Fat Heavenly Apple Blueberry Muffins

For those of you who have been around these parts for awhile, I am sorry for another repost, but it is apropos, delicious, healthy, and I don’t have a new post so there you have it.

Resolutions, most of us make them at this time of year and most of us have sadly thrown in the towel in about 3.2 weeks; I have read that stat somewhere but I don’t remember where.  So to help you at least start out on the right foot, I offer you these very healthy, super duper soft and  lightly spiced cardamom and cinnamon, apple-blueberry muffins.
