Creamed Brussels Sprouts and Apples with Bacon

March 9, 2012

Christmas Eve Prime Rib Dinner

December 25, 2010

Merry Christmas everyone.  I hope that all those who celebrate have had a safe and restful holiday with loved ones. I must admit that until Christmas Eve I was feeling a bit Scrooge-ish. It caught me by surprise as this is normally not my holiday persona. Typically I relish the stretch of days between Thanksgiving [...]

Almost My Father’s Pasta Salad

June 4, 2010

Temperatures have been hovering in the 70′s and 80′s for the past few days in Chicago so I think it is safe to say that barbeque and cookout weather is upon us.  Even though I’ve never been a confident griller, I look forward to these warm weather get togethers.  I love spending the afternoon in [...]
