Every day I seem to add to my list of recipes to try - some pulled from magazines, others clipped from favorite websites. There are some recipes that I've had in my "to cook" queue for years now and I am... Continue »

It had been months since I'd had lamb, so the other day at the market when I saw that they had boneless leg of lamb on sale I picked one up. I didn't have a particular recipe in mind when I bought the meat, I just figured I'd coat it in some sort of fresh herb rub, tie it up... Continue »

My mom and dad were in town visiting last weekend and for their first night here I cooked up another batch of the Stuffed Chicken with Herb Gravy that I posted last week, but this time made it with some creamy, goat cheese polenta as a side instead of the mashed spuds I used the first time around. It was... Continue »

How to make a homemade Hummus is something I teach the students at each and every Cooking Matters class that I instruct. Why? Because it is super tasty, quite healthy, wicked versatile, and SO MUCH cheaper to make yourself then to buy at the store. A container that would cost you $5 at the store can probably be made for...

This dish, what the French would call "Moules a la Moutarde", is traditionally made with a dijon mustard but when my friends from Coleman's Mustard sent me a beautiful collection of their dry and prepared mustards to try, I couldn't resist giving this classic French meal a British mustard make-over!

My two youngest boys are heading to Australia this Summer as part of a People to People Student Ambassador program....I am so jealous! Through class instruction and on-line study guides they have learned a lot about their destination, and for a final project prior to travel they were tasked with sharing something specific to the Australian culture with their fellow...

I've had the thought of these little buggers marinating in the back of my brain for a while now. In fact, about 6 months ago I titled a post "S'more Tarts" as a placeholder and reminder that the concept seemed worthy of a little investigation and culinary creativity. Well, last week after having seen that empty post yet again, I... Continue »

Here's a treat designed to please the little kid in all of us. I don't know about the rest of you, but I still have days where I crave a peanut butter and jelly sandwich (on white bread, of course) with a handful (or three) of crispy potato chips and a tall glass of cold milk for lunch. It was... Continue »
