I went apple picking a couple of weeks ago and had a lovely time with the family. The air was crisp and the day was slightly overcast with hints of sun peaking through. The clouds were fluffy and dainty in a sky that was a clean shade of blue. I have never been apple picking so I wasn’t sure what to expect, but I went with … Continue reading In Search of Future Pies.
When the leftovers look just as good as the meal you just had… Continue reading “Leftovers…Yum”
I love Sur La Table because every time I go into that store, I see something new I want to try. During one recent visit, my husband picked up a donut pan, one you use to bake donuts vs. frying them.

I usually bake some hash brown patties and call it day, however lately I have been into making home fries. It is really a simple execution. Use a good quality hard anodized non-stick pan, otherwise you will have more stuck to the … Continue reading Saturday Morning Home Fries
How much do you use? Continue reading To Garlic or Not to Garlic
The best time I have in the kitchen is when I am getting all my bases started, the prep time as you call it. Slicing peppers and onions, prepping the spices, peeling the veggies, all that believe it or not actually feels very serene to me. More than anything though I love peeling and chopping ajo, that’s Spanish for garlic. I guess because for me … Continue reading Ajo-Best Supporting Flavor
