Chicken with Apple Balsamic Cream Sauce

January 9, 2012

Back in November while at the Foodbuzz Fest I tried for the first time, and consequently fell in love with, Apple Balsamic Vinegar.  Made from apple vinegar and apple juice it had the characteristic depth of balsamic vinegar with the sweetness of apples.  And having been aged for 5 years it was also slightly syrupy […]

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.

Chicken in a Lemon Tarragon Mustard Cream Sauce with Roasted Grapes

Chicken with White Wine and Grapes

August 1, 2009

I love coming home from vacation because there are usually little ‘presents’ waiting to welcome me home – a couple of cookbooks from Amazon, magazine subscriptions, and my new favorite…my CSA shares. I was lucky enough to have people pick them up while I was out of town so they were all ready and waiting […]

Happy Belated Cinco de Mayo

May 7, 2008

Since Cinco de Mayo was a Monday night this year I decided that I wanted to forgo a night out for tacos and margaritas and try my hand in the kitchen instead. (I’ve never been a ‘have a drink on a Monday’ kind of girl, lame I know.) My primary source of inspiration was Mexico […]
