Chocolate Ganache Cake

Share

I made this cake for a dinner party we were supposed to have on Saturday night. I made the cake itself on Friday, wrapped it tightly in plastic wrap and stored it in the refrigerator. Unfortunately the dinner party didn’t happen because one of my dear friends, and one of our guests that night, had […]

Nonna Luna's Rice

I know I’ve mentioned this before, but I usually have a 2-lb bag of frozen shrimp in my freezer. I get a bag every time I go to Costco. The shrimp come frozen, peeled and deveined. They still have the tail on them, and you can choose to cook with the tails on or without […]

Meyer Lemon Gelato

Share

In January/February, I always see a box of Meyer Lemons at Costco and I feel compelled to put them in my cart. I don’t ever have a recipe in mind when I see them, but I love citrus so much, that I always find something to do with them. This time it was gelato. This […]

Salted Apple Cider Caramels

Share

I love homemade caramels. The kind they sometimes give you after dinner at a fancy restaurant.

I have only ever made these before, and they’re delicious, but these apple cider caramels are incredible. I love the concentrated apple flavor, and the slight saltiness. I truly have never tasted anything like them. I’d love it if a […]

This is a great weeknight meal, although it takes a little bit of time to […]

Buttermilk Ice Cream

Share

Buttermilk and ice cream don’t sound like a natural pairing to me, but I decided to be bold and try this recipe. It was delicious! The ice cream was incredibly creamy and the buttermilk gave it a nice little tang. It reminded me a bit of the tang that Pinkberry […]

Neiman Marcus Chicken Salad

The recipe for this salad came to me in a weekly email full of recipes that I receive from Saveur magazine. This chicken salad is very similar to one that my mother made when I was growing up. We usually had it when company came over. It was […]

Strawberry and Rosemary Scones

Share

Here’s another delicious recipe made with Mrs. Eldredge’s fresh strawberry jam.   These scones are wonderful and the rosemary gives them a really interesting and complex flavor. You wouldn’t think that strawberry and rosemary go together, but in these scones, they absolutely do. The sweet lemony glaze is wonderful as well. […]
