A Tablescape fit for a 60th Birthday!

      This past week, my husband celebrated a milestone birthday.......he turned 60! As I write this, I still can not believe it. In honor of his birthday, we hosted a dinner party with friends....... (stay tuned for future posts all about the food)

As always, the first item on my party planning agenda was the tablescape!  Really like the way it turned it out. Best part........I did not have to go out and buy anything new....One stop in my little shop of horrors in the basement and we were set!

Happy Tablescaping Everyone!

Outdoor Cooking.........summer is almost here!

So, ready for summer? I so am.......totally have cabin fever.... It is not quite warm enough to sit outside, but it sure is warm enough to enjoy outdoor cooking on the grill! (Okay, who am I kidding we truly never stopped using the grill....)

The other day while at the grocery store I picked up these great large mushrooms(a lucky find). Perfect for filling with the peppers  I already had at home.


Filling: 2 red peppers, 1 yellow pepper, and 2 red onions, and the mushroom stems,  diced and cooked for about 5 minutes.

Mushrooms, ready to be filled

Panko bread crumbs nicely toasted

Fill the mushrooms with pepper/cheese filling (yes....add some shredded cheese to the pepper mixture)
Top off with toasted panko bread crumbs.

Oil the hot grill and place the filled mushrooms on the grill. Cover and cook for about 5-10 minutes. Serve immediately.


Please do share a new recipe you have tried out lately.

Happy New Recipe Sunday

Easter Brunch at the Ronald Mac Donald House...Berlin Wedding

As many of you know by now, I am a volunteer at the Ronald Mac Donald House in Berlin-Wedding. I just recently celebrated my one year anniversary as a volunteer! Well, at Easter we volunteers prepare a Easter Sunday Brunch for the Families. When I was asked if I would help coordinate the event, I said sure! I was ever so slightly intimated by the thought of preparing a buffet for 40 people...but, I with a great team I had nothing to worry about. On Easter Saturday we diced, sliced and peeled and prepped. Then on Easter Sunday,  I got up at the crack of dawn...picked up the fresh rolls and met Oli and HOlger at the house to set up! The time I spent at the house preparing this event was awesome...we were a great crew and as always, the best was seeing the faces of the families when they came into the dining room and saw the dad took pictures of me and my crew, another ran upstairs to get his camera to take pictures of the food! Oliver and I spent some time chatting with the familes....I was lucky enough to meet Romy from Romy´s Helfende Elfen... She is a sweet little girl who received a new heart in 2013. She was back in the hospital due to a lung infection but got to come to the house(where her mom is staying) to enjoy the Sunday Brunch! What a sweet little girl..... and what a courageous mom.

 Holger prepared some great platters

now check out that buffet!

Hummus...soooo very good


Quiche, Salad, chicken wings and sooo much more

New Recipe Sunday is finally back! We are ready to take on 2015!

Please forgive the delay.....the flu took over my house and we are now finally all back to normal. For our first recipe this year...I would like to share with you all something simple, fast, and easy.....So simple, fast, and easy that I threw it together and it had on the table in 35 minutes!

Chicken Breast Filet with Mushrooms

covered in lots of Mozzarella cheese

So just take the chicken breasts....season with your favorite seasonings (i used a "garden herb mix" that is actually for salad dressing, cover in olive oil and back for about 30 minutes in the oven(375°F) Shortly before you take it out, cover with mushrooms and cheese.

While the chicken is in the oven, make some rice, chill the wine, and set the table.
