Bacon & Spinach Stuffed Mushrooms

Have a party coming up? These Bacon & Spinach Stuffed Mushrooms make for a great finger food at a party.  Plus you can make them ahead of time and bake right before serving or bake early in the day and serve room temperature. Either way they are pretty easy to make and taste delicious. Ingredients: … Continue Reading


Spinach & Artichoke Fillo Cups

I love appetizers, I love Spinach Artichoke dip and I also love Fillo dough. As I mentioned before I would rather have a variety of appetizers than commit to one entree.  It was just one of those days that I wanted to nibble on a few things.  When I went shopping for groceries to get … Continue Reading


My Lobster Newberg Recipe

For Christmas at my parents house we feasted on our traditional lobster dinner. This year, however, my mother went a little lobster crazy and bought way more lobster than necessary. Actually, she bought enough for everyone but then family that was suppose to be flying in to join us found themselves with canceled flights resulting … 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


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




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


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


Pea & Mint Soup


It’s actually chilly here in Miami.  I even turned on the heat this morning, which is a very rare occasion. I know that all of you that live where it’s snowing right now feel really bad.  I have many friends and family in the Northeast that spent their day shoveling their driveways.  Anyways, I decided … Continue Reading


Pumpkin Soup


I have been on a soup kick for the last couple of weeks.  So when I opened my cupboard and noticed a can of pumpkin leftover from making pumpkin pies, a light bulb went off.  I have never made nor have I ever tasted pumpkin soup until today.  This soup in extremely easy to make, … Continue Reading
