I am totally creeped out by flaccid vegetables. If a carrot or a stalk of celery can be bent I don’t want to look at it. It is no longer fit for consumption raw as far as I am concerned and is usually consigned to a soffrito or mirepoix. However since I had half a […]

Trying to get it together for this month’s Daring Bakers challenge was really hard. I kept having it all planned out and then something would get in my way, not the least of which was our big power outage. So the days kept passing me by until this past weekend when I got home on […]

On girls nights one of our habits is to make dip and eat at least one loaf of bread with it. Usually the dip is made by S, starts with a log of goat cheese and is fabulously sinful. Since we are all on diets for holiday time tropical vacations I tried to change it […]

Ivonne from Cream Puffs in Venice had a brilliant idea to try and get through some of the recipes in her stock pile – Magazine Mondays. I also have a stack of magazines which seem a mile high and which I never cook out of, so I am going to join her this week a […]

More of what happens when you must defrost your freezer. This isn’t exactly a Fall\Winter meal but it will do in a pinch and it worked out quite well as a nice simple quick way to prepare halibut. The fresh oregano was lovely and really made a difference – however I bet a lot of […]

So, my long weekend turned a little unexpected on Sunday night at the cabin when we lost power. The power is still out and was out when we left Tuesday. It put a bit of a damper on the weekend especially from a cooking scenario, so much for a Daring Baker experiment, it will have […]

These quesadillas are a delicious way to use up leftover pulled pork. Stuff the tortillas with cilantro, red pepper, scallions and spices.

Considering that risotto is by far one of my favorite dishes to make I can’t believe I have never made a risotto with butternut squash before – especially as it seems to be one of the more popular varieties. However since it is one of the more common varieties I wanted to punch it up […]

I was challenged by our organic box this week when we got kale. I have never cooked with nor, as far I know, eaten kale so it was quite a challenge. From all the googling it seemed like the best and the safest way to cook it for a first was in a soup. So […]
