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



This is definitely a creation of my husband, Amine, he is a fish & seafood lover.  He enjoys checking out our local fish markets and seeing what they’ve caught for the day.  Where he grew up in Morocco it was customary to visit the local fish market to select that days fresh fish to prepare … Continue Reading

Bacon Swiss Sirloin Burger


Gourmet sirloin burgers are a specialty in my family.  My husband dreams of sauces he can create to make the burgers unique.  Any burger that’s made is sure to be anything but ordinary.  My goal is to eventually create a sections with just burgers, but that means I have to remember all the burgers we … Continue Reading


Red Velvet Cupcakes


I was feeling the holiday spirit; which is not easy living where it doesn’t snow, and I wanted to make something to reflect my holiday cheer. Since I wasn’t really in the mood to make Christmas cookies I decided red velvet was a pretty holiday color.  This was my first attempt at red velvet cupcakes … Continue Reading


Sauteed Mussels with Garlic


There are so many ways these Sauteed Mussels with Garlic can be served.  You can stick some toothpicks in them and serve as an appetizer. You could also serve over pasta or rice as an entree.  No worries if you can’t find fresh mussels in your area,  the frozen ones will work just fine. Sauteed … Continue Reading


Chicken Cordon Bleu


What I love most about chicken is the hundreds of ways it can be prepared.  I could eat chicken every single day as long as it was prepared differently each time.  This recipe is very simple and extremely easy to prepare but adds a little something special to a traditional plain chicken breast.  In the … Continue Reading

Have you ever asked the question of  “I wonder how much he or she is worth?” Well I know that I have, especially when it’s a star I see while watching the FoodNetwork. I see some of the FoodNetwork stars with 2 or 3 shows of their own and all I keep wondering  is if … Continue Reading
