Chocolate Lava Cake

Have I mentioned that I love all things chocolate?  Chocolate Lava Cake is no exception to my chocolate weakness.   Chocolate Lava Cake is one of my favorite desserts to order out.  Mainly because I never realized that it really wasn’t that difficult to make.   The more time I spend in the kitchen the more confidence … Continue Reading


Top 10 Cakes of 2010

My favorite “Top 10” list is always the Cake List, and how can it not be? After days of research and cake browsing I really just wanted to stop because it was a torture, especially when you are trying to shed some pounds and have the biggest sweet tooth EVER! In the middle of my … Continue Reading


Beef with Mushrooms and Stuffed Zucchini

Nothing is more annoying than having food go bad and having to throw it away before you have a chance to cook it. Expensive beef that turns from red to brown, veggies and start growing fur and herbs that wilt away to pure mush.  So in an effort to avoid that I had to use … Continue Reading


Cream filled Puff Pastry

I love finding creative ways to use leftovers. I had left over French pastry cream from the French fruit tart and I also had puff pastry & chocolate left over from the chocolate cigars I made recently. So I decided to put them to good use and the outcome turned out better than I expected. … Continue Reading


Stuffed Chicken Breast


This is a recipe that I have been making for years, I consider it one of my comfort foods.  I don’t follow a recipe I just kind of “wing it” every time.  Today I tried my very best to measure all of the ingredients so I could share this recipe with you. Ingredients: 4 boneless … Continue Reading


Mushroom & Sherry Soup


My soup kick is still going strong.  This time I was craving a good creamy mushroom soup and since I found some great mushrooms while shopping I decided it was perfect timing.  I love the taste of the sherry in the mushroom soup but it can easily be omitted if you choose.  I also love … Continue Reading


Eggplant Rolls


I saw this recipe and had to give it a try.  I have had eggplant prepared a few different ways but never thought to roll it up, what a fabulous idea.   Now I’m going to be searching for other things that can be rolled up.  I already have a few ideas.  It’s the simple things … Continue Reading


Andolouse Beef Sandwich


My husband and I bought a giant box of premium meats and our goal was to cook each piece of meat differently so we never ate the same thing twice.  Over the weekend we sat pondering different ideas how we could prepare tenderloin for lunch.  I suggested grilling it and making a steak sandwich on … Continue Reading


Wild Mushroom Bruschetta


This may sound strange but I’d rather have a bunch of tapas for dinner than just one item.  Instead of choosing one item you get to enjoy a variety of tastes and textures.  What’s not to like about that?  If you are a mushroom lover, like myself, you will love this bruschetta.  This bruschetta makes … Continue Reading


Chicken with Lemon and Garlic


When I was a kid my family told me that I would turn into a chicken because I ate it so much.  Well, I’m still eating chicken and thankfully I haven’t grown feathers.  This Chicken with Lemon and Garlic calls for preserved lemon.  If you’re not familiar preserved lemons are used in a lot of … Continue Reading
