Chenin Blanc, My New Obsession

04.06.21 06:10 PM By Lisa - Comment(s)

I've always been more of a red wine drinker, especially in the winter and fall, but I think as I study more wines from around the world, my palate has definitely grown. I have always appreciated Champagne, Prosecco, and Chardonnay (my favorites of all time being Far Niente and Château Montelena Char...

The Fool Proof Pot Roast

I'm pretty sure the way to my heart is through a perfect pot roast and a glass of red wine. My mom used to make the BEST pot roast. I have funny memories of us going to the Rain Forest Café and her ordering their "Paradise Pot Roast" (she was a sucker for this meal too). There...

Ice Cream French Toast


My culinary idol is the famous French chef Jacques Pepin. This has to be the easiest and most delicious French toast ever. It was one of his ideas and I thought how brilliant. The ice cream already has the egg, cream, and sugar!! This recipe is super fast and it’s basically 3 i...

Pork Chops In A Mushroom & White Wine Cream Sauce

Lately I've been cooking pork. I made the pork dumplings for the wonton soup and I also recently made a pork fried rice, but there is something delicious about a bone-in pork chop as well. This is a 1-pot meal, except for any side dishes you wish to serve with it. For this meal, I simply steamed som...

It's still winter in the northeast USA. We are getting more snow than we have had in a few years. Snow is either a love or a hate thing. My friends that fly south or west for the winter hate the snow, but I on the other hand love it. I could honestly live in Ma...

Mediterranean Breakfast Bagel 

There is no denying I'm savory over sweet, so it's probably not a surprise that I would prefer my breakfast to look like something from a Spanish table. They are also casual in their morning rise..... so maybe my ancestors are really from Spain? or Portugal? I like salt, wine, and sleep..... I'm lik...

To my "Working Mom" friends and family: somedays it's all you can do to just get out of bed in the morning. You wake up and think: there's a mountain of laundry, the lunches need packing, the dog needs walking, I forgot to set the coffee pot timer last night and I...

Honey Citrus Lavender Crème Brûlée

One of my favorite desserts of all-time is crème brûlée. That first break through the flame-caramelized layer of sugar is so incredibly satisfying, as is that sweet vanilla bean taste. Years ago while gazing the spice section of a local market, a small packet of cooking lavender caught my ...
