{photo taken from the parking lot at the Red Horse Diner in Ellensburg, WA} Simply put, I live in a beautiful state. I would like to say that I live in the most beautiful state because I love the contrasts between the western side of the state and the eastern... Continue reading

"Honesty is the best policy" is a guideline that I'm going to use to tell you about this recipe. Thankfully, Dorie set the tone when she said that the recipe had Dominican origins and came to Paris by way of Alec Lobrano, a contributor to Gourmet magazine and a Paris... Continue reading

It is so delicious, Kim. If you ever have a chance to sip it after a meal in Italy, you should do it! :)

Mine did too and in fact, I thought that I pulled it off the heat a bit too soon, but it was fine for the cupcakes.

I think the cupcakes would be delicious without the marmalade, but they are awesome with it!

Truth is, if you eat tiramisu for dessert, you'll enjoy a heavenly sleep and angelic dreams ... a godly swoon, to be sure. The word "tiramisu" is literally (maybe only in this instance, but I'm no Italian language expert!) translated "pick me up" meaning that it has the power to... Continue reading

I saw your photo, Mardi! I found mine at Marshall's and thought they were adorable! I picked up a couple of other designs, too. :)

Italy and limoncello are almost synonymous. Dorie's proud yet sensible French friend, Bernard, said, "Italy was created so that limoncello could be invented!" If it is the only reason Italy was created, I'd say they have a good foundation. On our recent trip, we had many opportunities to taste the... Continue reading

My intention with the posts that were to go live while I was traveling was to prepare them ahead of time, take the photos, do the editing, load them in to my posts, then finish the copy later. It was a good intention and was almost carried out. I believed... Continue reading

Yep ... it's the second weekend AFTER Easter! Thank you all for being understanding of my recent schedule of family stuff and travel. Many have asked about travel photos and stories and they are certainly forthcoming so stay tuned! Easter weekend was short on the normal celebratory traditions. Ben was... Continue reading

Tartare ... every time I hear the word, I want Emily to tell her tartare story. Sometimes she indulges me and today is one of those times. Here's her story in her words: Okay, so here’s the most embarrassing story of my life, which I’ve been mostly cornered into telling.... Continue reading

Next Day Beef Salad ... simply a description of taking the leftover roast beef or grilled steak (my favorite!) from last night's dinner, adding all manner of savory condiments, fresh vegetables, mixing it all with a mayonnaise dressing, and mounding it on a bed of greens such as arugula, romaine,...

Fish soup ... Hmm... a little suspicious. The ingredient list sounded delicious: onions, carrots, garlic, fennel, fish, tomatoes, thyme, parsley, bay leaves ... I didn't find the scoopfuls of small fish that the local fishermen provide for this soup in the south of France, nor did I find the substitute... Continue reading

This is our Ben's last year in college, therefore his last year playing college ball, so we are trying to get to as many games as possible. His team played in Ellensburg over the weekend so I trekked over the mountains to see him. It really is a beautiful drive... Continue reading

One thing that I love about many French dishes is the fact that there is an attached story. And then either because the story is so compelling or the dish is so exquisite in flavor, those dishes become classics. True classics that, according to Dorie, have stood the test of... Continue reading

Thank you, Patty. This "set" is really a collection of four dessert plates and cups/saucers in four different colors: the green you see, blue, gold, and raspberry. It's really beautiful.
