Sugar Plums

Sugar Plums

‘Tis the season.   I admit that I’ve been feeling frazzled lately. I’m not entirely sure why, but since coming home from Disney last Tuesday night I’ve just been running from one end to the other and am finally looking ahead with a bit more […]

Pumpkin Galette

Pumpkin Galette

We made it to Friday and with that comes the end of our Thanksgiving ala France. To remind, we’ve made: Homemade Green Bean Casserole Sourdough Leek Dressing Mustard Thyme Roasted Turkey Breast and might I suggest and oldie but goodie to tie it all together, […]

Sourdough Leek Dressing

Sourdough Leek Dressing

Hello friends. I’m so surprised and a bit saddened that, thanks to commercialism, we’ve jumped right over Thanksgiving. I ran to Target last night to pick up some on-sale candy corn (fail) when I was hit smack in the face by this year’s Christmas village. […]

Piri-Piri Chicken Chili

Piri-Piri Chicken Chili

I’ve been searching for bowls of comfort these days over bowls of greens, and chili, obviously, comes to mind.  It’s rare that I ever try anyone else’s chili over Mom’s when I want something basic because, while everyone INSISTS that their particular chili recipe is […]

Palmiers

(A lot of) years ago when I was in law school, a group of classmates and I hit up all the EU hotspots on a ten-day trip right before Christmas. As Lettuce and I, roommates for the trip, entered our hotel room, we were greeted […]

Coronation Chicken Salad Sandwiches

I’ve been in a lunch rut. Have you been in a lunch rut?  It’s all salads, salads, salads over here and while I’ve got some good and interesting ones, it’s time to mix it up a little more, lest I start settling for my fall […]

Piri Piri Chicken Thighs

Piri Piri Chicken Thighs

I’m so proud of myself for grilling TWICE so far this season. It may seems like stupid victory to you, and it is. But for one THB who has used her grill barely over two handfuls of time in the four years that she’s owned one, twice […]

Grilled Eggplant Veggie Burgers with Smoky Hazelnut Pesto

Grilled Eggplant Veggie Burgers with Smoky Hazelnut Pesto

Memorial Day. Summer. Let’s grill. I always resist grilling, which is dumb because it’s so easy and, as someone recently pointed out to me, means no dirty dishes to clean (or at least a few pots and pans less).  I liked the sound of that, […]

Dutch Mustard Soup, Mosterdsoep

Dutch Mustard Soup, Mosterdsoep

Mustard. Let’s talk about it. I think it’s safe to say that it’s one of the most beloved condiments out there and while buying fun and fancy jams is my passion, tracking down fun and unusual mustards is my hobby. I love mustard. Dijon. Honey, […]

Apple Bacon Dutch Pancake, or Pannenkoeken

Apple Bacon Dutch Pancake, or Pannenkoeken

The best thing about traveling is the food I bring back with me (not in the literal sense because…customs).  That is, after all, how this blog started almost five (!!) years ago!  While the overall food of Holland didn’t strike me as all that unique […]
