I'm staying with my friend Rachel in the West Village in NYC and we decided to host a little party – fall being our inspiration.  Over the summer when I had been in NY Rachel had taken me to an amazing restaurant in the neighborhood called, The Little Owl.  We had the most incredible meal [...]

Booya-baisse My busy schedule has precluded me [...]

Make Room For Mushrooms

December 8th, 2006 · 2 Comments

Several months ago I brought home some packages of dried Italian mushrooms from Trader Joe's with the intention of making something with them.  Well, the day finally arrived that I put them to good use and restored them to their fragrant splendor.  These assorted mushrooms had been dormant for at least a month in my [...]

It’s A Wrap!

December 5th, 2006 · 7 Comments

I love summer rolls.  The cold chewy texture of rice paper wrapped around a little package of refreshing flavors is so fun to eat and pleasing to the palate.  There are endless combinations and the fun is in creating rolls that match your tastes.  I was inspired to make these vegetable rolls after I enjoyed [...]

Meat Me For Dinner

As you may have discerned from my many posts for fish dishes – I love seafood.  I usually have fish about three times a week – at least.  Every now and again though I crave a delicious bit of meat.  One of my favorite preparations is grilled filet of beef with herb butter.  I love [...]

Tried and True

August 15th, 2006 · 9 Comments

Jamie Oliver is one of the first chefs who really, really inspired me.  The type of food that he cooks, the ingredients he uses, and his easy no-nonsense methods come together to produce artful, creative, and delicious dishes.  I can vouch for the delicious part because I've tried a number of his recipes and I've [...]

A Sure Bet Vinaigrette

July 30th, 2006 · 6 Comments

I love salads and one accompanies most dinners that I prepare.  I love to enjoy my salad after the main course as I find it to be a lovely finish to the meal.  My everyday dressing is simple and fast but I have to admit that making other variations are pretty simple too and they [...]

The Odd Couple

July 26th, 2006 · 8 Comments

Little can go wrong when there's chocolate involved.  This is probably the same thought process my boyfriend employed when he bought me Brownie Points by Lisa Slater – a cookbook containing over 100 brownie recipes.  (Either that or he just wanted me to start baking him brownies.)    Aptly, the first recipe that I decided to [...]
