Roasted Chevre, Honey and Walnut Stuffed Figs

Thursday, September 6, 201211 Comments

 

The kids are back in school. Labor Day has come and gone. And, the nights are getting longer.  All of these are signs that summer is winding down.  For me, another tip off is the profusion of fresh figs that start hitting the supermarkets right about now.  Rows …

Lemon Linguine with Basil Pesto Shrimp (and Our New Baby)

Tuesday, April 27, 201046 Comments

Nope, I don’t have any Chocablock Cookies for you today. And, I don’t have any steamed puddings either. I’m really sorry about that, but life has kind of smacked me in the head this past week and I just never found the time to make them.  My work …

The Perfect Roasted Chicken

Sunday, April 18, 201043 Comments

Though I’ve never had the pleasure of visiting any of his restaurants, Thomas Keller certainly needs no introduction to me.  I’ve been hearing about and reading about his genius in the kitchen for years.  His multi-award winning, three Michelin star rated flagship restaurant, The French Laundry, is legendary. …

I’m a bad blogger buddy!  Jaden Hair’s lovely new cookbook, The Steamy Kitchen Cookbook, has been on the shelves for three weeks and I’ve yet to post about it.  Jaden was the first food blogger I ever met way back before SGCC was even a thought in my head.  …

It’s been absolute ages since I’ve been able to participate in Tuesdays with Dorie!  Between work responsibilities, my new gigs, family obligations and my travel adventures, I’ve been playing a perpetual game of catch-up.  Last weekend, I found myself with a little time to breathe and snuck in some …

TWD: VANILLA ICE CREAM

This week’s TWD comes right on the heels of the July Daring Bakers challenge and right on the toes of my July Dinner and a Movie roundup.  So, I’m going to make it very short (and very sweet).
I mean, it’s Vanilla Ice Cream, for crissake!

MINI-BYTE: TESTING AND TWEAKING

Saturday, January 5, 20082 Comments

I’m finally beginning to feel a bit more comfortable playing around with the look of my blog. I’ve still got a LOT to learn, but I’m working on it. I’ve been doing some tweaking and testing out a few new widgets in the sidebar. My goal is to include some …
