Kerrygold Open-Faced Breakfast Toasts

Monday, January 5, 2015

2 Comments

I’m a sucker for a good breakfast. I love breakfast, and I also love to entertain guests. When I have overnight guests I like to make them a special breakfast. Now, if you know me, you know I like things that LOOK like they took a lot of effort, when in reality they are dead […]

Bruléed Apple Tart

Tue, Aug 11, 2009

Inspiration comes from a lot of places.  Sometimes it is a basket of fresh fruit, sometimes it is a picture, and sometimes it is a television show.   Last week, while watching Gordon Ramsay’s The F Word, inspiration struck in the form of an apple tart.  Gordon baked sliced apples on a round of puff […]

Chocolate Angel Food Cake

 This recipe is something of a triumph for me.    I have long suffered with an inability to make a light and tender angel food cake.  The cakes always, without fail, fall in the oven or just after removal from the oven.  It drove me mad!   Now I am confident those days are behind […]

Cheddar and Gruyère Gougères

Mon, Aug 3, 2009

When I was in my Laminated Dough class in culinary school we made gougères.  I have never been the same since.   After reading what gougères were I was certain they would be awful.  I mean, a gougère is nothing more than pâte à choux  with cheese mixed in, but I always associated pâte à […]

Lemon Cherry Cake

When I buy fruit I find that I almost always buy more than I need.    In fact, I would go so far as to say I do that with most food.  That isn’t to say I am forever throwing away perfectly good food, but I plan for a dessert or salad and then overbuy […]

Croque-Madame Panini

Fri, Jul 24, 2009

What is better than a ham and cheese panini?  How about a ham and cheese panini topped with a fried egg and some creamy mornay sauce?   While dining out at a local French cafe I had a Croque-Monsieur which was quite nice.  I promptly went home to research what went into this sandwich when […]

Jalapeno Bacon Cheddar Cheese Burgers

Mon, Jul 20, 2009

A well grilled burger is a thing of beauty.  Add jalapenos, sharp cheddar cheese and thick cut bacon and it is the stuff of dreams. I have a few requirements for a good burger. It must be made with fairly lean  meat (around 90%), it must have salt and pepper, and it must remain moist after […]

Cherry Cheese Tart

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

Fri, Jul 10, 2009

21 Comments

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.  […]
