Apple, Blue Cheese and Walnut Dip

March 16, 2012

Between November and April I usually avoid the weather app on my iPhone.  Living in Chicago it’s generally an instant ticket to disappointment and frustration.  Despite what a lifetime lived in cold climates might suggest about me, I do not enjoy cold and snow.  Sure it’s nice for a few weeks to inspire indoor projects, […]

Bratwurst Phyllo Rolls

February 15, 2012

Almost a month ago I mentioned one of my new year’s resolutions, to waste less and to be more inspired by what I have on hand. And thankfully, it’s been working pretty well. While my approach to menu planning is not vastly different, I have tweaked it slightly. My usual routine was to spend a […]

Brie & Apple Tartlets

November 14, 2011

Like cheese? Don’t forget to check out my fun giveaway from Il de France going on through 1:59 pm tonight. Lately, my Facebook feed has been decorated with quite a few people posting and reposting images of Nordstrom signs that explain why the store won’t be putting up holiday decorations until after Thanksgiving.  Having had […]

Time for yet another tempting seafood appetizer.

Two-Bite Salmon en Croute with Figs and Caramelized Onions

October 11, 2011

One of the things I enjoy in the kitchen is taking the concept of one dish and morphing it so it becomes entirely different. It’s a great way to get mileage out of a flavor combo I know and love. So when the people at Alaska Seafood asked if I’d be willing to come up […]

Sun Dried Tomato-Feta Dip

September 6, 2011

I am unapologetically a girl who loves cheese. Goat cheeses, Bloomy Rind Cheeses, Chocolate Covered Cheeses.  There are few cheeses I’ve met that I dislike, though I admit there are a select few that aren’t exactly my favorites.  Feta cheese happens to be one of those cheeses.  In the 3+ years I’ve had this blog […]

Blueberry Balsamic Turkey Meatballs with Molten Goat Cheese Centers

June 29, 2011

The blueberry love continues with yet another savory dish incorporating my favorite summertime fruit.  On Saturday Jessi of the fabulous To Kiss the Cook held a fabulous Garden of Good and Evil themed party with appropriately, “good” appetizers and “evil” desserts. Since I’ve always been more of a savory girl, immediately I knew I wanted to […]

Pumpkin Bacon Wontons with Maple Balsamic Sauce

February 2, 2011

Confession time – I sometimes crush on a dish the way a girl normally crushes on a guy.  Silly, I know, but I do.  I’ve come to terms with the fact that my relationship with food borders on unusual most of the time. Sometimes I am first acquainted with a new meal and it takes […]

My Ten Favorite Recipes of 2010

December 31, 2010

It feels surreal that tonight we’ll be saying goodbye to 2010. Time certainly flew by! I know it’s cliche to say so as I find myself feeling like each coming year passes faster and faster, but I’m still amazed by the fact 2011 is almost upon us. Before the year is out I wanted to […]
