I actually made this brunch last weekend, but didn’t get a chance to post about it. I thought maybe you’d like to have these breakfasty ideas going into your weekend to perhaps try out! I made maple bacon, a champignon Brie omelette, and a bowl of berries. Here’s a way to make bacon even … More Simple Weekend Brunch
I know I have been sluggish on my post-show reviews, but I swear it’s not for want of exciting items! You know how life just gets away from you; I can’t believe it’s already the middle of summer. Isn’t everyone saying that? Anyhoo, there was just so much to be excited about from the show, … More Summer Fancy Food Show: Part Two – Drink Mixers, Vinegars, and Oils
It’s has been so busy lately that I haven’t been finding enough time to write! I’m still on my bag of lemons and limes, so dinner was another one of my citrus kick ideas: a Rosemary Lemon Chicken with Lemony Brussels and Cauliflower. I used lemon for all parts of this dish. And some fresh … More A Lemony Dinner of Rosemary Lemon Chicken and Lemon Glazed Brussel Sprouts and Cauliflower
“When the train’s late, when the day sucks, when I’m feeling sad…I simple remember the Fancy Food Show, and then I don’t feel so bad” Ok, I changed some lyrics, but it works! Sing it if you know it. And I’m not sad, I just laughed when I was thinking about “my favorite things” from … More Summer Fancy Food Show: Part One
I just had a feeling this would be great, and it was! Special thanks to a bottle of good Bourbon and the Jurgielewicz Sons’ pre-packed duck breast at http://www.tastyduck.com, this was so delicious and easy. And I had a great wine pairing too! The duck comes vacuum-packed in the freezer bag for the perfect ready-to-cook … More Duck Breast with Bourbon Cherry Plum Sauce
I get into “kicks” with foods and find dishes to highlight the said kick. The other day, I hadn’t grocery shopped in forever due to being here and there (including the food show, reviews still to come I promise!!) so naturally I got a lot of stuff. One of those items being a big bag … More Fresh Lime Kick!
I’m still here, I know it’s been a while. I was at the amazing, spectacular, best show ever – the Summer Fancy Food Show in NYC (which I will be writing about shortly). Then I high tailed it out of town for a quick weekender down to NC near Emerald Isle. Made a nice and … More Quick Check-in with some Grilled Shrimp!
This was easy and unplanned. A true case of “what’s in the fridge.” Luckily I still had some goodies from Sunday’s farmer’s market to get things started. And some chicken thighs for the protein. I began with some nice summer produce of corn and yellow squash, coupled with some portobellos and red pepper, then a … More Simple Summer Sautée
I couldn’t decide what to grill between chicken thighs or pork tenderloin. So what’s the answer? Both, of course! That’s usually the best answer. And veggies to accompany, kabob style. I marinated the chicken and pork in a Sweet Bourbon Glaze by Pepper Palace. It’s one of those really easy marinades where you don’t have … More Mixed Grill!
Yes the title is a mouthful, but what a delicious one! And I didn’t even add to the title the side of smoked maple sweet potatoes. Together they were a deliciously complex and satisfying dish! This one is really just about the ingredients. I was inspired by the morel mushrooms I finally saw available at … More Pork Chops with Morels, Asparagus and Cherries in Wine
