Panettone French Toast

Panettone French Toast must be on your holiday breakfast menu this year. Seriously. Certainly you’ve seen the big displays at the grocery store of these funny loaves of bread inside gigantic boxes labeled “Panettone.” Before I worked at Trader Joe’s many years ago I was completely unfamiliar with what these were, and I feel like […]

Gingersnaps with Mango Chutney and Goat Cheese

Gingersnaps with Mango Chutney and Goat Cheese are the simplest, yet most satisfyingly flavorful little appetizers ever. And they’re pretty, to boot! I’m not sure about you, but the holidays get pretty hectic for me. I never want to go to any Christmas parties empty-handed, but I don’t exactly have all the time in the […]

Halloween Graveyard Brownies

Halloween Graveyard Brownies are pretty much the best brownies you could possibly imagine. When I was a kid, we used to go to the local Round Table Pizza in Issaquah where they had a soda fountain with 8 different sodas to choose from and we got to fill our own cups. Being only the tender […]

Pumpkin Chiffon Pie with a Triple Gingersnap Crust

Pumpkin Chiffon Pie with a Triple Gingersnap Crust. This recipe for Pumpkin Chiffon Pie is a classic that was handed down from my grandmother to my mother and then to me.

Salmon Eggs Benedict

Salmon Eggs Benedict Since I left England a few weeks ago, I’ve been hard-up for some of those traditional English breakfasts that I’d been enjoying on my trip. English Breakfast Tea and Soft-boiled Eggs served in egg cups have become pretty much my breakfast staple. I really just cannot get enough of them. But one […]

Wasabi Muenster Grilled Cheese

Wasabi Muenster Grilled Cheese Sandwich Sometimes all you want in life is the comfort of a cozy grilled cheese sandwich. While hitting up the local Charlotte South End Food Truck Friday, I happened upon a food truck called “Papi Queso” where they specialize in unusual grilled cheese sandwiches. I have now tried three of them: […]
