After spending a day in the cold and rain at the Museum of Flight a couple of weeks ago, we were more than ready for something warm for dinner. My Emily had already planned to make this soup before she knew it was on the French Fridays' schedule so I... Continue reading

I found the name of this dessert clever. It's a pie (called a tart) and cranberries are ... well ... they're tart. They are rarely used without copious amounts of sugar to counter that characteristic. The crust of this tart is a little sweet, and the bottom of the tart... Continue reading

I entered this weekend feeling like the month of November has simply flown by! In my mind, I knew that Thanksgiving was less than a week away, but I wasn't ready for it. My to-do list is still a mile long! Emily and Kyle stayed over Friday night and Saturday... Continue reading

The saying, "You learn something new every day" rings most true for me as I continue cooking through Dorie's book, Around My French Table. I had never heard of storzapretis so of course, I didn't know that they originated in Corsica. That's two things I learned. And for some reason,... Continue reading

Friday morning as I sat with my coffee and breakfast, the text chime on my phone sounded. I picked up my phone and saw a text from my son, Ben, "Our soccer team is playing at SPU tomorrow night." Seattle Pacific University is in Seattle and Ben's school is in... Continue reading

When I eat out, I have two manners of choosing from the menu. I either choose something I know, love, and want to compare to other chef's versions of it. Or I choose something I don't make at home. Duck is one of those things. Ken is not what I... Continue reading

Thanks, Lori. I buy Ezekiel bread, too, as well as Dave's Killer Bread. Good stuff. I don't avoid salt, but always use Celtic Sea Salt, Himalayan Salt, or any of the French sea salts, like Fleur de Sel. They all have so many more minerals!

I've hesitated to update my "Eating Plan" journey because it seems there's not a lot to tell. The last time I reported, I had lost 9 pounds and that's where I've been for three months now. I have lost some more inches and that's definitely a plus. I can't wear... Continue reading

He's a Dorista, she's a Dorista ... and Doristas aren't we all?! Yes, these were delicious little cookies.

I didn't really intend for the apricot jelly to come through or mix with the icing, but ultimately, it's really all about the taste, right?!

Just three weeks ago, I posted THIS to celebrate Dorie's birthday, the 4th anniversary of the French Fridays group, and the release of Dorie's new book, Baking Chez Moi. Today, I'm pointing to that post because I'm joining the Tuesdays with Dorie online baking group to bake through the new... Continue reading

First things first | It's Veterans Day in these United States, a day to remember all who have served or sacrificed to preserve our nation's freedom. We Americans are grateful and never want to forget that we move freely through our days because of you. May it ever be so.... Continue reading

What these ugly little sunflower root tubers have to do with artichokes OR Jerusalem for that matter, I'd love to know. I'm sure there's a story somewhere to be uncovered, but since these little lovelies decided to lag behind my schedule and only show up in the market three weeks... Continue reading

This week's recipe was for a Jerusalem Artichoke Soup with Parsley Coulis, but since it seems that Jerusalem Artichokes chose to show up unfashionably late to this party in the Pacific Northwest (they were in the market Thursday evening!), I chose to make a recipe that I missed in the...

Hi Karen from Reno!! Your mom was so lovely and I sure wish you could've been present, too.

Yes, Cher, she is. If I'm ever granted the opportunity for an extended conversation with her, I'll consider myself blessed indeed.

I do hope you get to see her in Chicago, Mardi. She is indeed a genuine soul and I firmly believe that none of her interactions are fake or contrived. Such a darling lady.

My mom, I, and Emily all became moms at about the same age ... 21-24. It's been wonderful for my kids to have their grandma young to relate to and that's what I hope for my own grandchildren! And it seems Emily has the same idea, too, right? Being present to pass along the legacy seems like a good idea to me. :)
