This cookie is not what I set out to make.    This was supposed to be a simple almond cookie.  I was craving almond cookies last week and decided to come up with a recipe that incorporated ground almonds into the cookie for some texture.  Things went astray when I saw a lonely orange sitting […]

 Sometimes it is all about the sauce.   The best part of this meal is really the sauce.  It is the right combination of tangy and sweet, unlike the neon red sauces served by most Chinese carry-out places. Not to say my mixture of chicken and vegetables in this dish are not fantastic, because they are, […]

Ready for some new shenanigans?  How about we start with pie?    When I first started cooking I used to make something called “Oreo Pie”.  It was made with an Oreo crust, chocolate and vanilla instant pudding, and whipped topping.  It was easy, it tasted pretty good, and when sliced it looked fairly impressive.  That pie […]

We arrived in New York City late on Friday night.  It was cold, in the 20’s, and there was a lot of wind which made it feel much colder.   It seemed within a few moments my face and legs were completely numb with cold.  We met the driver at baggage claim and once we had our […]

I have discovered the secret to world peace. Ok, maybe not world peace, but at least momentary joy and happiness.  I have been toying with the idea of a chocolate filled vanilla cupcake for a while.  As it happens I have a soft spot for cream filled cupcakes, considering one is now my logo, and […]
