A Hearty Breakfast

December 23, 2011 | Savory Recipes | Permalink

Tweet Two years ago, I hit the streets of San Francisco for the first time.  The vacation came at the right time.  I needed respite from life, even if only for three days. The main objective of the trip was to taste my way around the Fancy Food Show.  The second objective: to nibble my […]

Ginger Fried Rice

May 29, 2011 | Savory Recipes | Permalink

Tweet I love fried rice the way I love a vanilla cupcake with vanilla buttercream frosting.  I must have it!  This past summer, I experimented with fried rice recipes in my search to eat more whole grains and vegetables. The recipe I originally used was from Penzey’s Spices, a fragrant store conveniently located about five […]

Morning Oatmeal

May 1, 2011 | Savory Recipes | Permalink

Tweet Oatmeal: one of my favorite breakfast meals.  It’s a funny thing.  Growing up, my mother never made or let us make oatmeal.  When she was a teenager and taking care of the household, she always had to wash the oatmeal pot after her brothers’ would make it, eat it and leave the premises.  Now, […]

Tweet This past Christmas, I was in Stuttgart, Germany before the winter Christmas holidays, which meant Christmas market time.  To me, the Christmas market season is food heaven!  All the comfort foods you could ever imagine, all nicely contained in a small area.  The hardest part about the market: deciding what to eat.  After I […]

January 16, 2011 | Savory Recipes | Permalink

Tweet I was in charge of sweet potatoes for Thanksgiving dinner.  Two years ago, I tried scalloped sweet potatoes, and the final dish resembled a small puddle rather than something edible.  So, I googled.  One recipe that instantly caught my eye was Sweet Potatoes with Pecans and Goat Cheese from the Smitten Kitchen.  Since I […]

French Fridays with Dorie-Sweet and Spicy Cocktail Nuts

December 16, 2010 | Savory Recipes | Permalink

Tweet This week, I made the Sweet and Spicy Cocktail Nuts from Around My French Table. It’s quick.  It’s easy. It’s a mixture of salty, sweet and spicy. It’s a winner. But be careful once they are out of the oven. I turned my back, and the finished product was mostly gone. That’s a success […]

Food Memories…

December 6, 2010 | Savory Recipes | Permalink

Tweet Most, well all of my memories include food, particularly cookies.  As a child, the first thing I would look for on my Aunt Lillian’s countertop was her cookie jar full of windmill cookies.  The thin, crisp, spicy cookie was is still a favorite of mine.  Don and Dolly, my pseudo grandparents, had a cookie […]

Cranberry Jalapeño Cream Cheese Wontons

November 13, 2010 | Savory Recipes | Permalink

Tweet Asian cuisine is my comfort food.  On Friday nights, after the long work week, you can often find me sitting on the couch, eating peanut curry stir-fry and cream cheese wontons.  I leave work joyfully skipping not only because of the upcoming weekend, but also knowing my favorite meal is only a short morsel […]

Viennese Sauerkraut Strudel

Tweet Sacher Torte.  Wiener Schnitzel.  Apfelstrudel. These are the foods that come to mind when I think of Vienna, Austria.  Now I include Sauerkraut Strudel. Immediately following the new year in January 2007, my sister and I took a girls trip to Vienna.  On our second day in the city, we spent the morning at […]
