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




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


Chocolate Trellis Cups


Don’t let the look fool you. Making Chocolate Trellis Cups are both easy and fun to make!  Just flip a cupcake pan upside down, cover the inverted cups individually with plastic wrap, melt your chocolate, pipe away and then stick it in the freezer.  Once chilled, fill with your favorite ice cream and presto your … Continue Reading
