Better Know a Mother Sauce: Veloute

When it comes to dough, yeast, and anything that requires kneading I am like a moth to a flame – despite countless baking fails I can’t resist the dough and always circle back to try again. It’s no secret that I’ve struggled over the years in the bread…

Peanut Butter and Chocolate Muffins

Somewhere along the way I picked up the belief that it’s completely fine to have chocolate for breakfast as long as it’s served in an appropriate breakfast way. So basically brownies for breakfast = bad, but chocolate muffins for breakfast = totally okay!…

 If it’s going to snow and be all freezing cold outside we might as well take advantage of it and make some soup, right? Surprisingly, the weather folks got it right this time and we got our first glimpse of snow flurries on Monday that quickly turned to…

In our house there are two kinds of cooking – weekday and weekend. It’s a simple way to classify, but I find that during the week it’s all about speed and simplicity, while the weekends are the opposite. With the extra time I tend to slow down in the…

Before we break that poached egg and get into the details about this pasta dish – and my new amazing revelation that you can, in fact, cook your pasta in the same pan as the sauce – I wanted to share a few pics from our recent trip to Key West…

Baked Double Decker Tacos

 I have no problem using convenience foods in the kitchen if it means that I’m less likely to hit up a drive through on the way home from work. Some people recoil at the thought of using canned, jarred, pre-made anything, but I’m not one of those people…

And…we’re back. We arrived back home last night just in time for a giant windstorm that has brought with it freezing temperatures. Already our week at the beach is a distant memory as we are once again bundled up trying to stay warm as we wait for some…
