I have a confession to make.  I am a soup-a-holic.  I could eat soup every single day.  And the best thing about soup is that you can make it out of pretty much anything you have on hand.  I had some left-over enchilada sauce I had made, some fresh salsa and chicken thighs.  Then I […]

So once again I’m cooking winter food and it’s in the 80’s in Florida … But it’s DECEMBER, cut a girl some slack! My original plan was to make my Beef Daube, which is one of my most popular posts.  But, as I looked in the fridge there was a bottle of Stone Levitation Ale […]

I have  a love-hate relationship with Thanksgiving.  I love to cook, I love to entertain and I love to eat.  Every year I look forward to Thanksgiving with high anticipation and every year by 4:00 on Thanksgiving day I’m in bed cuddled up with a bottle of wine and a bad attitude saying “I will […]

First and foremost before anyone thinks I have developed mad food photography skills, this picture is lifted — or borrowed from Williams Sonoma.  I feel fine about this because it links back to their Steak au Poivre Sauce. Williams Sonoma has been offering free cooking classes every Sunday.  I went to a couple of them […]

There are as many recipes for Boeuf Daube as there are for meatloaf.  This is comfort food at it’s best.  All the flavors meld together the meat melts in your mouth and the noodles absorb the sauce.   I looked at several French Cookbooks and took elements from many of them to create my version of […]

Ahh, fall is in the air and the hearty soups that go with it are back on the menu!  (you’d think I’m writing from Vermont, not Florida where it was 93 degrees yesterday!) In our case, we have to lower the air conditioner to experience fall.  True, we miss out on the turning of the […]

As some of you know I went to the Netherlands last week.  From an architecture, history and meeting new people perspective, the trip was phenomenal.  From a foodies perspective — it was not my cup of tea.  I did however have two delightful bowls of soup that I wanted to recreate.  I made the first […]

I’ve  been struggling with eating lately as  something was upsetting my stomach and I had to go back to the basics.  When my tummy decides not to cooperate with me I go back to soup, it always seems to work for me.  This process has taken about three weeks to figure out the problem.  I […]

I made this almost a week ago and am just now able to sit down and write about it.  I only get around to making Chicken and Dumplings 2 – 3 times a year and I don’t know why, it’s easy and it tastes so good that writing about it is making me want to […]

:Sigh: I am writing tonight with a stunning lack of inspiration.  Had I not committed to cooking my way through the Paris  Bistro cookbook I wouldn’t even write this entry.  But I did commit — and if my first post was about a ruined dinner then I can certainly write about an uninspiring meal. This […]
