Mushroom Pot Pie & Roasted Beet salad

Winter is when some of my favorite foods really come out to shine and pot pies are high on that list of fantastic winter dishes. Turkey pot pie after Thanksgiving or Christmas, chicken pot pie whenever the mood or the rotisserie chickens are on sale or take this fantastic vegetarian version out for a spin […]


Winter Borscht

It’s winter in North Carolina and though we may not have snow very often, it does get cold and when the humidity is hovering in the high 80% range and the temperature is in the low 30’s the chill seeps deep into your home and has a knack for finding its way to your bones. […]


Tomato Cheese Tart

For almost as long as I can remember this recipe has been “in the family”. I can remember being a child slicing up tomatoes or inhaling the herby scent as I spread the marinated tomatoes out onto the tart shells. The smell of these baking was either the final hint that the holidays were upon […]


Autumn Paleo Sausage

I’m not even a huge sausage fan but these were beyond sausage and scrumptious in their clean simplicity. I found the recipe for these online and made a small adaptation for my adult daughter who is trying a Paleo – type diet for auto immune disease. I had a hard time refraining from eating more […]


Chai Tea

Is it cold where you are today? Are you holding your hot coffee or tea cup tightly while you sip down the warming liquid? How about a change of flavor pace this holiday season that might just outlast your Christmas tree? This recipe came to us on a recent visit to Norfolk Virginia and a […]


German Apple Cake (Apfelkuchen)

I would not consider myself a baker. I always sigh and move on, when I see a really delicious dessert that requires baking. I tend to mess up the recipes in some small way. It may be overly dry, or maybe it doesn’t rise properly, too dense or some other version of too much or […]


Cran Elderberry Pepita Relish

You spend days or even weeks planning Thanksgiving dinner and then you spend hours cooking an amazing turkey, perfect stuffing, fluffy mashed potatoes, delicious casseroles and pies pies pies! But what about the cranberry sauce? Most of us just make one simple decision – whole berry or jellied. We decant the can and call it […]


Vegan chocolate chip cookies

I am not a vegan, but these cookies are delicious! I doubt they are any better for you, the environment or anyone else except maybe the cows and chickens. They are not easier to make. So why did I make them? Well that’s easy, I didn’t have enough eggs or butter, but my pantry just […]


Hahnchenpfeffer

It’s always fun to come up with a menu based on a single ingredient. Sometimes it’s the protein, sometimes it’s a vegetable. This time around the recipe was based on something that wouldn’t even end up in the recipe! Enter the Gewurztraminer (pronounced gə-ˈvu̇rt-ˌstra-mə-nər). We tasted a bottle at our local wine shop and loved […]


Pasta with Swordfish, Tomato, & Eggplant

We live just down the street from a little roadside stand that sells arguably some of the freshest seafood possible. We love to stop in and pick up whatever they happen to have and fashion a dish around that ingredient. This past weekend that dish happened to be Swordfish. I’ve never cooked it before, and […]
