Somehow, I'd never had Chicken Marbella until just recently. I loved it so much that I served it for a New Year's Eve dinner party.

Facing death - and helping others to face death - is a huge part of my job as an oncologist. Here's a glimpse of how it feels. 

Oh, and there is also a recipe for sour cherry buttercream frosting.

http://www.merrygourmet.com/2014/01/mother-and-the-tigers/
Once upon a January day, after too many days in a row stuck at home, the mother decided to drag her children out of the house. She had tried this the day before, and she only succeeded in getting her kids to go out to lunch with her. “It’s too cold to go outside,” they …

Introduction

The merry gourmet was born in 2010 as a food blog, a place for me to share recipes and my experiences learning to cook and bake.

In 2004, I began teaching myself to cook. I was the mother of an infant at the time, and I realized that she would eventually learn to cook — or not — from me. I wanted to set a good example, not just by knowing how to turn ingredients into a meal, but by cooking good food, and by cooking mostly from scratch.

Over the years, the merry gourmet has evolved and grown, as I have. It’s not just about the recipes any longer. Here you’ll find a collection of  stories about food, life, and family.
