A while ago, Bob & I were contacted by Taste of Home to review their “Cooking School Cookbook” and immediately we said yes. Taste of Home is one of the premier cookbook companies so how could we say no?! One of the recipes that first caught my eye was the Cherry Pie recipe – I’ve […]

Provencal Tomatoes | JC100 – Week 12

July 25th, 2012 · 1 Comment · Appetizer, Bread, Dinner, Easy, Fresh herbs, JC100, Vegetable

Here is the second recipe from Week 12 of the Julia Child JC100 celebration.

Eggplant Risotto

October 2nd, 2010 · 2 Comments · Rice, Vegetable

After watching Hell’s Kitchen for the first time years ago and hearing Chef Ramsay yell several profanities about a contestant’s Risotto, I knew one day I would find myself trying to cook up some Risotto while envisioning the one and only Gordon Ramsay screaming at me!

Crepes: Easy & Fancy Breakfast

June 11th, 2010 · 1 Comment · breakfast, Dessert
