Mom’s Homemade White Bread

Mom made this bread all the time while growing up. There was nothing better than coming home from school to the aroma of freshly baked bread wafting through the air. Her bread recipe bakes up beautifully golden brown. Best enjoyed simply slathered with a bit of butter, but also great for toasting. Freezes well.


Uncle Andy’s Macaroni & Cheese

Another classic from Grandma's recipe collection. She credits her brother-in-law, Andy Bertha, as her source for this recipe. This is a quick & easy recipe to make for a family dinner and pairs perfectly with meatloaf.

Elsie's pumpkin pie recipe

Elsie’s Pumpkin Pie (a.k.a Libby’s)

As I was collecting recipes from Grandma Elsie I, of course, had to ask for her pumpkin pie recipe. Because as many of you remember Grandma always had several pumpkin pies at our Thanksgiving gatherings along with her Famous Cheesecake. So, our conversation went something like this... Loma, "Gram can I have your pumpkin pie recipe?" and she replies, "honey, it's on the can!" Well, who knew?

But, what some of you may or may not realize, is she always made her pies fresh, early on Thanksgiving morning.
She truly was amazing!

spinach lasagna roll up recipe

Spinach Lasagna Roll-ups

This is a great pot luck dish, it is easy to make ahead of time and freezes well. I recommend serving with garlic bread, Caesar salad and a Loma sized glass of red wine.


Original Grinder

This is the ultimate gooey tasty goodness for game day! I have to pay respect to the originator of this sandwich - Mario's of Kansas City, MO. You can find information at This was a favorite childhood sandwich for me, as my father would bring these home after a long day at work. Unfortunately, I have never found another location that makes these, so I learned how to make them on my own. This would be an Italian equivalent to the Pasty in the UP. On a football Sunday, it's hard to find a more satisfying sandwich.
