Balsamic-Parmesan Bruschetta

There are so many ways of making bruschetta and I love them all.  Whenever I find a new type of bruschetta I put it to the test like I did with this recipe that I found on www.sixsistersstuff.com .  It’s so easy to make and very delicious, it’s hard to stop going back for more.  A delicious appetizer and a great way to please a crowd.

Have you ever had a dream of staying in a castle, even for one night?  Langley Castle Hotel in the Northumbrian valley is the ideal place for a romantic getaway and an experience of a lifetime.  It has all the architectural and medieval cuteness you’re looking for set in a peaceful twelve acre woodland estate.

Italian Easter Bread

With Easter approaching, many kitchen’s around the world will be getting ready for that special weekend.  Each country in Europe has its own unique way of celebrating Easter, especially with food and Italy is no exception.  Take a look at these Easter Bread Rings with colorful eggs for the center.  A beautiful nest display.  This would be so much fun to make with your kids (or in my case my grandchildren).

We ate Beef Goulash quite often in Southern Germany; it’s a popular dish just like their neighbors in Austria and can be found in many Salzburg pubs and Viennese coffeehouses.

You can never go wrong with Nutella – it’s the perfect thing to grab when you’re in the chocolate mood!  I love spreading Nutella over pound cake so I decided to add Nutella in with the pound cake. With a little research I found this recipe at Food and Wine.  It turned out perfect.

Are you eating pie today?

Pi (π) is a very old and well known mathematical constant that is the ratio of a circle’s circumference to its diameter. The value of pi is equal to 3.14159265, more commonly known as 3.14 – representing a never ending perimeter.  The lower case Greek letter π is used to denote the constant because it is the first letter of the Greek word περίμετρος, meaning perimeter.

Irish Apple Streusel Muffin

Apples have grown well in Ireland for thousands of years. An apple tree was so important hundreds of years ago that it was supposedly protected by the Celtic virgin goddess, Brigit! If you had an apple tree on your land you were considered quite wealthy, if someone damaged the tree, then the fine was several head of cattle.
