I love things that look difficult but are in fact quite easy. Soufflé is one of those desserts that people assume is terribly difficult to make.  I think it goes back to cartoons and movies where someone is making a soufflé that comes out tall and perfect only to have it collapse in spectacular fashion.  […]

I may be one of the only people who do not like Oreo cookies all that much. I know, I know, EVERYONE like Oreo’s (and if you gave me some I would eat them) but they are not, and never have been, my favorite.  It is the texture of the cookie.  For many the crispness […]

I always carry with me a book I call my ‘Inspiration Book’. This is the place where I jot down ideas, or flavors, so when I get back to my home kitchen I remember what it was, exactly, that inspired me.  This little book has served me well, and it is directly responsible for this […]
