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, […]

Homemade Green Bean Casserole

Homemade Green Bean Casserole

So, here’s a recipe for green bean casserole. It does not use canned soup. It does not used canned onions. It’s all from scratch. 100%. I confess that green bean casserole wasn’t a thing on our Thanksgiving table. It just…wasn’t. We ate our green beans […]

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. […]

Mazariners (Swedish Almond Tarts)

Mazariners (Swedish Almond Tarts)

Since telling my work colleagues bit by bit about my impending departure (Friday, yo!), I’ve been overwhelmed by so many good thoughts and wishes and hugs and smiles, and showered with offers for lunch and coffee.  It all makes me wonder if I should be leaving […]

Kifli

Kifli

Hungarian-style kifli, a flaky pastry-like cookie filled with delicious jam! Are you cookie-d out yet?  I was and then I remembered a little thing called moderation and I’m back in the game.  Because let’s be real, I was faced with this: …and I just had […]

Linzer Thumbprint Cookies

Linzer Thumbprint Cookies

Linzer sandwich cookies transformed into raspberry filled thumbprints Do you know that before last Thursday I baked nary a Christmas cookie? I was sort of sad about it, and disappointed in myself that I should have the gall to lack such holiday cheer. Christmas baked […]
