Vanilla Malt Pancakes
Not too much rambling here - just going to cut to the chase. These were created from one of those "you know what would be so  good right now?" moments, and they were a huge hit. Who doesn't love a big stack of flapjacks from their favorite diner along side ...

Best Homemade Popcorn, Milwaukee Style
So, I know what you may be thinking, or at least I was. A post on popcorn? Really? After much encouragement from a fellow popcorn aficionado, I succumbed to sharing my technique on homemade popcorn, which I've 'perfected' since moving to Milwaukee over 12 y...

James Beard's Onion Tea Sandwiches
As far as tasty little tea sandwiches go, I've never come across one I didn't like. These are the first ones I've ever had though that made me stop in my tracks while I contemplated over the simplicity of them, and how it contrasted with what I actually tas...

Hot and Sour Soup has been one of my almost  favorite things for years. I love love love  tangy dishes, especially when that tang comes from copious amounts of vinegar or citrus. Plus, this soup has a lot of the flavors I love in Chinese cooking - lots of p...

Vanilla Almond French Toast with Salted Caramel Sauce
Pancakes have been a long running favorite in our house, so much so that the little one didn't even know what french toast was... yet. She has had a serious yen for toast ever since her first bite, so it didn't take much convincing to get her to try this. E...

Ginger Molasses Cookies
We've been watching a lot of  Fantastic Mr. Fox  lately, and thought it'd be fun to make a special treat that my little one could doubly enjoy since it's referenced in the movie. Mrs. Bean's nutmeg ginger apple snaps seemed like they would be a hit. Alas, I...

African Style Carrot Soup
It was a bit difficult for me to decide on a name for this soup, since there is so much going on in it. Some of the prospects were carrot and sweet potato soup with peanut, or speedy african style carrot soup with coconut milk, or carrot, sweet potato and k...
