Berry Cherry Pie

Pie makes me happy. But I do NOT like pies that require lots washing, peeling, and chopping, so I created this perfect fruit pie. As with all of my food inventions, it meets my criteria of easy, delicious, and nutritious….

The Truth About Gravy

Whenever I’m seated at a dinner and asked if I want gravy, I have no idea what to say. What IS gravy, exactly? What is IN it? Should I view this as the curse of never wearing mini skirts again, or is this the delectable treat my life’s been missing? I consulted our Wellness Contributor, Tara Felice, and Little Mama and this is what I found out….

Halloween Sauerkraut Brownies

I think you may all remember my sauerkraut fetish and how it actually helped to cure my gastritis. If you have been watching Graye Note Live, you may also have seen me “ask” my daughter, Andrea, to try my Sauerkraut Brownies. I thought it went over well. She said she couldn’t even taste the sauerkraut! What better way to have a tasty treat for Halloween than one that is actually good for you! Come on, get a little kooky spooky and “Trick or Treat” with our Halloween Sauerkraut Brownies…

Overwintering Spikes

No…for you fashionistas out there, I don’t mean your stilettos! Although, it wouldn’t be a bad idea to put those away for the winter, too! The Spikes that I’m talking about are the only non-flowering plants that I make sure to overwinter every year. By overwintering plants you’ll not only save money….

Fall Shoes

When I get dressed, sometimes I find that I get my whole outfit on and then realize I don’t have the perfect shoe to go with it. You can imagine that this does not make me happy. Shoes cannot be an afterthought! We must plan ahead, so I have identified the 6 shoes that will be extremely helpful to make sure we have in our closet this fall….

Apple Impromptu Cake

It’s getting to be that cozy time of year. And, you know, I LOVE COZY! The best season of all (my FAVORITE) is here! FALL, AUTUMN, AUTUMNAL EQUINOX. However you look at it, it’s APPLE time! My most favorite apple recipe is my Mom’s, which I have tweaked. She knew how to make cozy come to life! It’s a piece of cake to make (literally). I think you will enjoy this Apple Impromptu….
