It only comes but once a year for me – the potato latke. I don’t know why we don’t make them more. Perhaps just to preserve the sanctity of tradition. At Hanukkah, we fry stuff in oil to commemorate the miracle of light back in the day when only a tiny bit of oil lasted … More Latkes Rock!!
I hope you had a wonderful Thanksgiving this year! One of my favorite things about all the cooking is all the leftovers I know I’ll have and the many things to do with them!! One night we had turkey nachos. Plenty of turkey salads and sandwiches. And last night, I used the last of the … More The Last of the Thanksgiving Leftovers: Sweet Potato and Cauliflower Soup

So here are a few great foods we made for the big day this year! Please forgive the lack of how-to-ness here, I promise I’ll get back on … More Thanksgiving 2018
How’s that for alliteration? I know I don’t have to say how long it’s been since I’ve written, but again, I’m sorry! I have been cooking, just not spending the kind of time I usually like to due to, ya know, life! Anyways, last night I made a great, healthy salmon and quinoa dish that … More Super Simple Seared Salmon
Sorry it took so long to get part 3 written!! I had another trip or two in between and time just got away from me, as usual. Anyways, I did so much during my mini Napa Getaway that it did, in my opinion, require three parts. So thank you for sticking it out, if you’ve … More Mini Napa Getaway: Part 3…
We started our second day in Napa (well, our first of just two FULL days!) with a nice drive out to the Point Reyes National Seashore. We were going to hike locally around the Lake Berryessa area, but wild fires were still threatening the area. So we headed west. It’s a much larger area than … More Mini Napa Getaway! Part 2…
I had the chance to sneak in a couple days in Napa before doing some work in San Fran and took full advantage. As you know, I’ve been to Napa several times, so I wanted to do some stuff I hadn’t done before, and, of course, share it with you! We were starving for some … More Mini Napa Getaway! Part 1…
I had some great leftover Maryland lump crabmeat and decided on some good ol crab cakes for dinner last night. They came out great, with a little help from some fresh lemon juice and a great mustard by Olivier. I used the same mustard to toss some brussel sprouts in before roasting. Added a little … More Crab Cakes!!
I made this dish a little while ago and just completely forgot to write about it once I split for a little beach vacation! I’m sorry, but since it was definitely worth telling you about, I figured better late than never!! I started with some good looking lamb from Wegmans, just cooking for one tonight, … More Mole-Cherry Lamb Chops
If you’re a mid-east coast local like me, Hershey, PA is a great summer weekend for the family and the Hotel Hershey is the perfect hang spot. It’s old charm and elegance envelopes you from the moment you get there. Founded by Milton Hershey, it sits just above Hershey Park and watches over the family … More The Hotel Hershey: Good Family Fun @thesweetestplaceonearth
