Fall is in the air! I plan on decorating for Fall this week. I love all the pumpkins, fall colors, and I especially love decorating with all my beautiful treasures I have collected over the years.

The Best Homemade Pizza

It's a another beautiful day here in the northeast.  It's cool, and the humidity is gone!  I love the cooler temps especially in September, knowing that our summer here is over, and the kids go back to school.

Homemade Mac and Cheese 101

Creamy Mac and Cheese on Blue and white plate

Hey everyone welcome back!!!

What a beautiful day we are having here in northwest New Jersey! Finally the humidity and heat broke, and it really feels like an Autumn day! This past Saturday we had my husband's family over.  It was a very hot day, the kids swam in the pool, and played outside, while the adults ate, and sat in the air conditioning. Not a typical family summer get together, but the heat was unbearable!

Quick and Easy Creamy Lemon Oatmeal Bars

Creamy Lemon Oatmeal Bars from Life with Liz Somma

This past Tuesday was the first day of school here in our town in New Jersey.  My son Davey is going into 7th grade. For me it's so hard to believe that he only has two years left in middle school, then off to high school.  It's so bittersweet for me, my kids are growing up!  Creamy Lemon Oatmeal Bars are a delicious, easy bar cookie recipe. The sweetened condensed milk, and lemon flavor are basically the creamy filling. The crust and the crumb topping are the same, so it's an easy dessert to whip up for an after school snack. Enjoy!

How to Make the Best Zucchini Pie Recipe

Zucchini pie on plate from Life with Liz Somma

My very first blog post on my new blog, Life with Liz, is one of my family's favorite recipes, Zucchini Pie. Usually every summer we have a lot of zucchini in our garden, and the first thing I make is Zucchini Pie.  My Grandmother and my mom made Zucchini Pie when I was growing up, and I loved it.  I have been making it for the past 28 years for my family, and it's my go-to Zucchini recipe.  I use my homemade pie crust, it's so easy, flaky you will never want to buy a store bought pie crust again. If making your own pie crust is intimidating, try my recipe!
