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


Richest FoodNetwork Stars


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


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


Tilapia with Saffron Risotto


This was a creation of my husband, Amine.  I was only in the kitchen to cook the rice, chop the ingredients and clean up the mess.  Amine is a wonderful cook; however, the kitchen always looks like a tornado hit it when he’s finished.  But we have an agreement that when he cooks I will … Continue Reading


Roasted Bell Peppers & Tomatoes


Since I am doing my best to watch what I eat while surrounded by all of the tempting holiday treats I decided to roast up some bell peppers and make a salad that I can snack on guilt free.  This roasted bell pepper & tomato salad can be served as an appetizer, a side dish … Continue Reading


French Fruit Tart


I have had many store bought fruit tarts but none compare to the French Fruit Tart usually only found in French Bakeries. Unless, of course, if you make it yourself.  This recipe is a little labor intensive but worth every second.  The most difficult part would be the French Pastry Cream.  It’s not that there … Continue Reading
