Asian Udon Veggie Stir-fry

If you know me, you know that I don't always have access to the ingredients I wish I could get my hands on. Every year, more and more new products arrive, but some simple things still aren't here.  Like decent brown sugar. Or good flour, never mind more difficult ingredients, like those used in foreign … Continue reading Asian Udon Veggie Stir-fry

Have you ever looked at pictures of Petra, one of the Wonders of the World, and the beautiful sands of the desert in Wadi Rum where they filmed such movies as “The Martian” and ‘Lawrence of Arabia” and dreamed of visiting?

Vanilla Ice-Cream with Chocolate Peppermint Chunks

I understand that businesses thrive on seasonal items, but I've got to say, it makes me crazy when I just want something that is 'out of season' and I know it'll be impossible to get it.

We always have pasta in our cupboard.  We … Continue reading Pasta Pomodoro with Burrata

Limoncello Lemon Curd Ice-Cream

I am going to try and not make this post ramble on and dart from this story to that, but I'm very afraid I won't be able to do that.  Why?  Because I'll be speaking of lemons.  And Limoncello.  Which means Italy.  And this time specifically the Amalfi coast.  And we all know what happens … Continue reading Limoncello Lemon Curd Ice-Cream

Stuffed French Toast Dippers

I'm sick today.  Stomach flu.  Yes I'm starting today's food blog off like this. I'm bored.  There's nothing to watch on Netflix.  My eyes are too tired to read my friends new book that I'm dying to read.   My stomach can't handle my eyes scrolling through my food feed.  I feel so weak I should … Continue reading Stuffed French Toast Dippers
