Secret Recipe Club: Bacon, Date and Goat Cheese Filo Rolls

May 21, 2012

Alaskan Wild Salmon Taco with Goat Cheese-Bacon Fondue

May 5, 2012

This marks my final submission in the Alaska Fish Taco contest put on by the Alaska Seafood Marketing Institute, which since it is also Cinco de Mayo is quite fitting. Our last and final challenge was to create the best fish taco. I will admit for the first time in the entire contest I felt [...]

Carrot and Goat’s Milk Cheddar Soup

April 4, 2012

Last week it was ice cream, but this week it’s all about soup.  It might seem a bit incongruent, but it’s pretty representative of the weather we’ve been having these days in Chicago.  Somedays it’s nothing but blinding sunshine and I find myself practically skipping to work in a dresses and open toe shoes.  Other [...]

Beet Salad with Apples, Quinoa and Goat Cheese

February 23, 2012

This month’s 5 Star Makeover challenge was beets. This time I was inspired by my earliest memories of beets.

Fromage Friday: Smoky and Spicy Mashed Sweet Potatoes with Bacon and Goat Cheese

September 9, 2011

Things lately have been tremendously hectic.  Between quitting one job and starting another (which I absolutely LOVE by the way), withdrawing an offer on a condo, traveling to Minnesota and Las Vegas, and starting an apartment hunt, any attempt at normalcy has quickly fallen by the wayside.  But the truest testament to the harried nature [...]

Fresh Garbanzo Bean and Goat Cheese Pate

July 27, 2011

For this installation of the 5 Star Makeover we were challenged to create a 5-star style dish with seasonal ingredients from our local farmers’ market.  We could use standard pantry items, but everything else had to come from the market.  Even though our deadline was extended an extra month due to holiday travel and even [...]

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 [...]
