I got up to post this morning, only to realize that I am pretty much caught up. Well almost. There is that pesky (delicious) risotto to write about and, of course, Sugar High Friday to contend with. But they will come over the next few days. In 2006, I experimented a lot in the kitchen. […]

Sometimes we all need a moment of relaxation. (How coincidental that one of those moments is RIGHT NOW for me, thanks to Blogger.) In times like that, we might turn to cookies or some other comfort food. Or maybe it’s a hot bubble bath and a glass of wine that relaxes you. Well here’s something […]

Here’s another of my new kitchen toys: a Le Creuset Tagine. Tagine refers to both the pot and the traditional Moroccan dishes made in the pot. The traditional pots like this are made of clay. But enough with the lesson, let me tell you about the first recipe I tried in this. This recipe is […]

For several years when I was a child, my uncle and his then-wife, lived in a comfortable one-story house on a canal (or was it an inter-coastal?) in Hudson, Florida. They had a little dock off their back lawn where they kept a fishing boat. During one visit to their home, Billy, my uncle, let […]

Valentine’s Day is fast approaching. The stores are already sporting their reds and pinks, hearts and cupids. Hell, they’ve been doing that since Dec. 26. No matter though, with the V-day (and I am very fond of this holiday. It would be my #3 favorite holiday behind Halloween and Christmas, respectively) only one month and […]

For you or me, it might be a bonus at work or a particularly good night out. But when you are one and a half the great things often come in simple packages. Will’s learned to drink from a juice box. And that alone makes him super happy. He gets to have a big boy […]

I love my Le Creuset grill (actually, it’s a griddle…I know, but they essentially perform the same function, right?). So far, it’s griddled asparagus for me (which I ate all of … alone) and made a TON of sandwiches. Loving the sandwiches (with the grill press, of course). This is one of my favorites so […]

I have a secret. It’s actually not much of a secret so much as a disclosure. A brutally honest disclosure. But we’ll get to that in a moment. First, let me talk a bit about asparagus. Asparagus is a good source of vitamins A and C, both antioxidants. It’s also a great source of folate […]

::Sigh:: Isn’t it lovely? It’s red. That beautiful, deep shade of red – like a perfect, shiny apple. And it’s cast iron . . . mmm, cast iron. Better yet, Le Creuset cast iron . . . in red. Love the red. I received the pan – this lovely grill pan – as a Christmas […]
