Everyday Recipes


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




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


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


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
