Recipe of the Month – Tartiflette

Recipe of the Month – Tartiflette

Recipe of the Month – Tartiflette I read about this dish, which was new to me, in a memoir by a transplanted American living in France. (Samantha Vérant’s book, How To Make a French Family, is coming out in April.) Rather than try to save the recipe in the eBook, I clipped two other recipes from the … Continue reading

May’s Best Bites

May’s Best Bites

The ingredients aren’t too bad – white flour, buckwheat flour, butter, oil (non-hydrogenated), chocolate, sugar, and hazelnut paste, basically.  No preservatives. The package … Continue reading

Tostadas al Pastor

Xin Nian Kuai Le!

Happy Chinese New Year! I’ve written and blogged about my dear friend Angela Chang for years, most recently after the delicious New Year’s Eve dinner we shared just a few short weeks ago. Here’s your chance to meet her and discover her cookbook, The Intriguing World of Chinese Home Cooking.  She’ll be at Chicklet Books in the … Continue reading
