The brussels sprout is the perennial childhood dinner table torture device, perhaps only second to the lima bean.  I have to admit they are not my favorite vegetable either.  I’ve been recipe testing brussels sprouts for 3 full years.  In fact, this vegetable almost completely took me out of recipe writing all together.  I probably […]

  Sugar cookies are a universal childhood favorite.  I’ve yet to meet a little who can turn one down.  But these sugar cookies are a treat for the grownups, too.  My husband swears they go well with Bourbon.  My friend, Angela, and I were discussing cooking at lunch the other day.  She’s a trained chef, […]

Baby […]

My kids love Chicken Clagiving night.  That’s what they named our version of not Thanksgiving – with Roasted Chicken, Gravy, Homemade Stuffing, and Mashed Potatoes.  The key to stuffing (or croutons if you’re making those), is to have your bread thoroughly dried out.  This is almost never a problem for me since I’m inclined to buy […]

This is the Chocolate Bottom Crusted Chocolate Pie I made for Julia, a friend of my daughter, when her grandfather passed away.  Hers had meringue on top, but I’m a big fan of real whipped cream over meringue, any day.  For years, every time I saw Julia, we talked about this pie.  It was the […]
