Applesauce Spice Cake

Dessert is my favorite meal of the day. Winter, the “holiday season” specifically, is my favorite time of the year because everyone is making and requesting sweets. The only thing that puzzles me about this season is that, with all the holiday delicacy just waiting to be enjoyed, people get hung up on cookies for […] Read more…

Chianti Pears – Daisy In Italia, Part Two: Tuscany

Walking the streets of Florence where the likes of da Vinci and Michelangelo found their inspiration and once displayed their art. Strolling through Chianti Classico vineyards and tasting the sweet, juicy grapes along the way. Gazing at the beautiful Tuscan hills from every angle imaginable. Learning traditional Italian recipes from traditional Italian women in their […] Read more…

Tiramisu – Daisy In Italia, Part One : Rome

This past October I spent three weeks in beautiful Italy! Three weeks was not nearly enough to see all Italy has to offer, but I had a wonderful time soaking it all in. My first stop was Rome. When I wasn’t walking down cobblestone roads, buying candy from street-vendors, lunching in front of the Trevi […] Read more…

I Am Ready

Daisy at Home has been on hiatus since January 2010 even though it was a baby blog to begin with. My husband, Jonathan Glyer, was tragically killed in an accident at work in the end of January. This has completely changed my life. I used to cook dinner for us almost every night. I stopped […] Read more…

Chocolate Covered Cherry Cookies

I made these cookies for a friend’s birthday party over the summer and they were a big hit. They are constantly requested and are becoming a Daisy signature! I have made them so many times that I barely need to look at the recipe anymore. I originally found the recipe on Epicurious.com and have altered it […] Read more…

Homemade Brown Sugar

I have not used store-bought brown sugar in about two years; it gets dry, clumpy and frustrating to work with. I now make my own brown sugar. Homemade brown sugar stays moist, it still clumps a little but since it stays moist the clumps are easy to smooth. Brown sugar is just a mixture of […] Read more…

Mama’s Lasagna

  As I have said before, my mom was my first cooking teacher. She cooked every night for our large family, which meant many nights of meals that were quick, easy and could feed an army. One such dish is her “Lazy Day Lasagna”. Daisy At Home Mama’s Lasagna Save Recipe Print Recipe My Recipes […] Read more…
