Markklosschen Suppe mit Fladle

If there’s one recipe that brings me right back to my childhood, standing on a stool in the kitchen looking over my Oma’s shoulder, this is it. This is a dish I remember fondly, and it was one of my favorites – so much so that my Oma would have to watch me like a […]

Barefoot Bloggers: Coeur a la Creme

Well, this is my last “official” post as a Barefoot Blogger, and what better recipe than the one I chose for the Bonus Round. I looked through all the Ina Garten recipes on the Food Network site in trying to choose, and this one just appealed to me because of the use of fresh fruit […]

A Change in Focus

As most of you know, I had a revision to my gastric bypass back in January, to an extremely malabsorptive surgery that means that my body doesn’t absorb much of what I take in. Because of that, what I take in has an order of priority – protein first, then veggies, then carbs, and I […]

Taste & Create: Kits Chow

Trying to get my Taste & Create entry posted this month has been a complete and utter comedy of errors. First, stupid me waited until the last minute to get this done. Mistake #1. Partially because there were so many awesome recipe on Kit’s Chow that I had a hard time deciding. I had finally […]

TWD: Summer Fruit Galette

The recipe that Michelle in Colorado Springs chose for this week’s edition of Tuesdays with Dorie was a timely one, as I had a collection of stone fruit that I picked up this past weekend that really needed to be used up one way or the other. What I didn’t have, however, was a lot […]

Well, I had a really busy weekend so I am way behind, so I’m getting this in too late to make the roundup but here it is nonetheless. This week was so hectic that I had almost no time to cook at all, and what I made for One Local Summer is about as basic […]

Farm Fresh and Local Produce – 7/26/08

This weekend is a little different than most, as we have family visiting from Pennsylvania – nonetheless, I still wanted to keep my Saturday morning farmers market ritual, and Paul’s sister came along with us this morning. We got a fairly early start on this cloudy, cool and humid day, and got to the North […]

Joe’s Cole Slaw

My mother’s boyfriend Joe makes absolutely amazing cole slaw. Hell, his food in general is just amazing, but especially his cole slaw. I’m still trying to get him to give me the recipe. It’s tangy and sweet at the same time, with bits of carrot and red pepper and god knows what else. It’s so […]

Barefoot Bloggers: Smoked Salmon Spread

It’s Barefoot Bloggers time again! This time around, our recipe is a smoked salmon spread. I wasn’t exactly looking forward to it, because once again, smoked salmon is one of those things I’m “meh” about. If I want something cured, I’ll eat prosciutto. If I want fish, I’ll eat fish. I can take or leave […]

Whisk Wednesdays: Veloute Agnes Sorel

As usual, I’m bringing up the rear for Whisk Wednesdays, a day late and a dollar short. And I’m convinced that my luck with French soups is nil. I wouldn’t have thought that making a cream of chicken soup would be so difficult, but… Let’s just suffice it to say that we weren’t pleased by […]
