     Good grief, it has been forever since I have been on my own site.  I spent the summer travelling: Puerto Rico, Peru, Canada,  France, Germany and Spain.  It was an incredible experience and I still have not quite recovered.  I dream of the next trip.  ...

Galettes from Brittany - Easier Than You Think
     When we travel, it isn't just about seeing the 1000th church, walking around the city, seeing yet another museum or staying in the best hotel.  Honestly, and perhaps a bit shallow of us, I think we love experiencing the food and then trying to recreate...

Christmas Cooking Day 6: Duck Confit
My photography skills really are not that great and once again Jamie pointed out tonight that I have to stop trying to photograph on white plates.  I get it...that is my 2017 goal.  With Cate's new camera and perhaps a few new plates...I can hope for better...

Christmas Cooking Day 5: This Ain't Beef...Iberico de Bellota Pork
Evidently, I am supposed to stop using white plates for my pictures.  I only found this out once the meal was plated but at least in this case, my resident photographer did a really nice job.  I am hoping that once she receives her Christmas present, I will...

Stop into almost any bistro in France and chances are you will see on the menu Steak Saute aux Echalotes - Steak with a Red Wine Shallot Sauce.  The steak is typically a bavette or onglet cut, which is difficult to find sometimes here in the U.S.  Onglet is...
