Ok, so it wasn’t me who actually did the fishing, but I did get to benefit from it!! The hubs reeled in a some, fresh rockfish for me to turn into dinner, and this I did. I started with this nice big filet fresh off the boat (they cut and cleaned your catch for you … More Gone Fishin’
So I just came up with this name and I love it. It’s a sauce you make to toss things like, in last night’s case, brussel sprouts in! I’ve done a really great one for Brussels before – harken back to the lemony dinner a couple months ago. So many things can work for a … More “Toss Sauce”
Last night the food was fancy, but the dress was not. Pajamas, in fact. But no expense spared on our delicious spread! We began with a martini pairing – lobster martinis and Greg Goose martinis! What?? Yes, a food one and a drink one! Lobster-tini time. We picked clean a gorgeous 2-pounder with huge claws … More Girls’ Night: Fancy Slumber Party Foods!
I guess I was in a tropical mood last night. Made a dinner with the idea in mind to use up some leftover fresh salsa, got insipired by some fresh pineapple, found a bottle of Malibu Rum in the liquor cabinet (that never goes bad, right?), and put it all together! I’m going to … More Tropical Dinner and Drinks!
I know it’s been a little bit, I’ll stop starting blogs like that. You get it, life happens, etc… Anyhoo, I got a new spiralizer yesterday and had to try it out.

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
