I have spring on my mind even if Mother Nature isn’t quite cooperating; we enjoy a handful of glorious days with perfect temperatures and Robin’s Egg blue skies and 48 hours later it’s overcast and gloomy. However, my peonies have poked their plumy-pink stems up through the ground as has our rhubarb patch so I know spring is here; the koi pond has been cleaned, the fountain is running and it looks like this coming weekend will be our first mow of the season.  [click to continue…]

GLUTEN-FREE HAM & CHEESE WRAP WITH HONEY MUSTARD

I’ve been gluten-free for more than three years now and in the beginning, I’ll admit to being a bit apprehensive about navigating the gluten-free world. I knew I was ahead of the game because I already knew how to cook and was relieved I wasn’t learning that skill along with trying to figure out what was […]

Just a super quick recipe post for you today – and it also happens to be one of our favorites: Curried Broccoli-Cheddar Tart with Bacon. Tender bites of green broccoli suspended in currried whipped egg, scattered with spring onions, cheddar cheese and topped with crispy pieces of bacon. And if that weren’t enough, all that […]

The Professor and I were in New Orleans last week – it was the first time either of us had visited this fabulous city and by the end of the week, we were both smitten. The weather was perfect – sunny and warm with a gentle breeze; there is so much to see and do […]

I love a great chip, don’t you? Potato chips, veggie chips, corn chips and tortilla chips. Chips with ridges, kettle-cooked, salt and vinegar, black pepper, nacho-cheese and barbecued – I have enjoyed my fair share of chips and dips over the years.

GLUTEN-FREE MAPLE-BACON DOUGHNUTS

Doughnuts. The mere mention of doughnuts and my knees grow weak; glazed, frittered, cream-filled, jelly-filled, cinnamon dusted, powder sugar dusted, nut-topped, plain, fried or baked, I’ll admit to being an equal opportunity eater of all things doughnuts.

I’ve been fortunate to have traveled to Italy five times in the last 18 years; my first trip was a two-week stint with a group of fellow college students as part of a team to help renovate an apartment space for a pastor of a local church in Rome. It was the very first time […]

GLUTEN-FREE RICOTTA CHEESECAKE WITH STRAWBERRY SPOON FRUIT

It all started with meatballs and a piece written by an extroverted freelance writer with a desire to gather friends, family and strangers around her table and to share food and build community. ‘Friday Night Meatballs‘ became a movement of sorts and Facebook exploded with people who wanted to create their own Friday Night experiences. We really liked the concept too and while […]

QUESO DIP WITH PICO DE GALLO

Deflate-gate, the unexpected and sudden loss of a beloved member of our food community and the snowpocalypse that wasn’t (at least in New York) – it’s not a stretch to say that it’s been a roller-coaster couple of weeks. I had planned to post this recipe much sooner in the month but sometimes life happens and […]

It’s a gray day here in the Midwest and I find myself pulling inward, desiring to get quiet and create – to write, to try a new recipe, to paint a wall. It’s hard work as I’m a perfectionist, always picking apart my work, always comparing, always believing someone else can do it better – […]
