Japanese Milk Bread

Tuesday, July 22, 2014

6 Comments

Last November my husband and I spent the week of Thanksgiving in Tokyo. The first few days we were there Mr. Shenanigans had to work, so I took the opportunity to visit different neighborhoods in Tokyo, tasting different foods and soaking up the culture. Once his work obligations were complete we moved into a little […]

Cherry Cheese Tart

Fri, Jul 17, 2009

33 Comments

I love fresh cherries, and at this time of year they are plump and sweet.   When the cherries hit the produce section I grab them up for cherry pies, cherry sauce, and for eating ice cold on a hot day.  However, I must warn you, cooking with fresh cherries in season will spoil you […]

Spicy Red Bean Soup

 Sometimes you just need a good bowl of soup.  The funny thing about soup is that despite how easy most soups are to make at home we, as a society, so often turn to the cans of soup that line grocery store shelves.  Yes, they are easy to prepare, but for all their ease of use they lack […]

Creamy Orzo and Mushroom Pasta

Mon, Jul 13, 2009

16 Comments

Ever since I was invited to the Mushroom Council lunch a few months ago I have been looking for new ways to add mushrooms into my everyday meals.   I have also been looking for new ways to use favorite ingredients because I can sometimes get into a cooking rut.  Orzo pasta is one of my […]

Fresh Peach Cobbler

When the weather turns from warm to hot, and the scents of grilling fill the air, my thoughts turn to cobbler.    I would like to take moment to clear up a misconception about cobbler.  It is not just fruit with a layer of pastry crust on top.  That is NOT a cobbler.  That is pie.  […]

Slow-cooked Beef Roast

Wed, Jul 8, 2009

23 Comments

I love a good old-fashioned roast beef dinner, but I really do not have the time to make it during the week.   Well, I didn’t until now. A few weeks ago I had a serious craving for some roast beef, the tender, fall-apart kind my grandmother used to make when we would go to her […]

Strawberry Jam Tarts

 Last October I had the opportunity to go to England and Ireland and the trip changed my life. Overall, I must admit, the food was pretty bleak.  I was so busy preparing for my friend’s wedding (in which I was not only the Matron of Honor but I was the cake designer) that I ate a lot […]

Buttermilk Biscuits

Tomorrow is the 4th of July here in the US, and I can think of no better way to celebrate our nation’s independence than with a hearty breakfast of flaky and tender buttermilk biscuits.   For years I struggled with buttermilk biscuits.  Drop biscuits I had down pat.  I could make batches of those fluffy little […]

Creamy Tomato Basil Soup

If you have been following me on Tiwtter then you know that I recently had some minor oral surgery.  For three to five days after I was to be on a soft food diet.   I know, how depressing. Well, I decided to be proactive and make some flavorful and hearty soups before I went in so my soft […]

Queso Blanco

24 Comments

There are certain foods that I crave and am completely unable to resist.    One of those foods is queso blanco.  This creamy cheese dip is finding its way on to the menus of  Tex-Mex restaurants next to the traditional orange chili con queso.  It is made with a variety of white cheeses and spices depending on where […]

Bacon Wrapped Pork Loin Roast

Fri, Jun 26, 2009

I love pork products, and I love finding new ways to cook with this most versatile ingredient. I am not a big fan of pork roast, however.  Most of the pork roast I have had has been dry, tough, and flavorless.  Even with elaborate stuffing, injections, and coatings I have found most pork roast to be boring.   It is […]
