I’m back!  Sorry for the long hiatus in posting.  Life has just been beyond busy, and frankly, I’ve been suffering from a lack of inspiration so I’ve been cooking many meals which I’ve already blogged.  I’ve been focusing my creative juices in some other places, some worthwhile, some not so much.  Anyway, I sought out […]

Fall is fleeting, and winter is closing in on us.  One of my favorite things about this part of the year is most people consider it acceptable – even gratifying – to eat soup at least once a week.  National Soup Swap Day will be somewhere towards the end of January.  I’ll be hosting one […]

I created this side dish for a different, healthy, light choice to replace our usual suspects.  If you haven’t jumped on the quinoa(pronounced keen-wa) bandwagon yet, you should.  Are you a vegetarian?  Do you tend towards high blood sugar?  Are you looking to add iron, folic acid, or fiber to your diet?  Are you exploring […]

Is this technically even a pesto?  Or just a texture similar to pesto involving pureed nuts, herbs, garlic and veggies.  I don’t know.  It seems in essence pesto generally refers to basil, pine nuts, garlic and olive oil, but has been expanded to include about a billion other things to create gourmet accouterments.  This recipe […]

I’ve always shyed away from hollandaise sauce in restaurants, mainly, because I thought it was a yellow mayonnaise.  The horror, I have a life altering fear of mayonnaise.  I’m working on it, albeit halfheartedly, since for health reasons, why would one ever attempt to learn to love mayonnaise?  That said, I like butter, I really […]

Get out of dodge.  I’ve finally cooked fresh live lobsters!  This has been a want and a dream of mine for as long as I can remember.  There’s something so pure, raw, and unadulterated about taking a live ingredient and making it yours from start to finish.  It’s completely primal.  Now I’m not a hunter, […]

Our picnic fare for this week’s Deer Valley Free Concert featured fresh foods from the Farmers Market.  We had fresh broccolini, fresh zucchini, fresh radishes, Lemon Pepper Chevre and Garlic Chevre from Drake Family Farms, and fresh Asiago Cheese Bread from Volker’s Bakery.  After a super hike up Holly’s trail leading to mid-mountain of The […]

Last night I saw the Wallflowers perform at the Red Bute Gardens in Salt Lake City.  I thought I was getting a beautiful picture of our picnic setup, but it was super bright and I guess I couldn’t tell it was all shadowy at the time.  To the left is a fresh chive hummus I […]

When I write about a recipe that isn’t really a recipe, I get very self-conscious.  Sort of how I feel about why anyone would you want to read the footnotes.  If it’s not important enough to make it in the text, why add it at all?  I’m guilty of this.  Whenever a book has a quote after the […]
