Roasted Vegetables with Tomato Pulp and Avocado Herb Mayo

Apricot Pistachio Cupcakes to Welcome Baby Alicia!

I have a great news to share with everyone.  My one and only brother Jean had his first baby girl this weekend.   I became an auntie to a beautiful baby girl Alicia.  She is  so tiny but yet so perfect and precious in every way.  To welcome baby Alicia home, I decided to make some [...]

Pork Loin with Balsamic Fig Compote and Cracked Basil Potatoes over Arugula

This was our weeknight dinner when my husband’s sister, Isabelle told me she was coming over to see us.   I was inspired to make a dinner with figs from my Trader Joe’s visit at my work lunch.  It does involve many steps, but it’s not very time consuming. I don’t feel like writing a whole [...]

My Blog’s 1st Bday/Chicken & Mushroom Stuffed Puff Cups/Giveaway

My dear friends… It’s been quite some time since my last post.  I really missed you and I am really sorry for not blogging for some time – I just could not make myself come back.  I have been having some personal problems and could not leave them aside.  Hopefully everything will slowly settle down [...]

Gwyneth Paltrow’s Fried-Zucchini Spaghetti

I recently realized that I have some commonalities with Gwyneth Paltrow. Maybe not the height, or the beauty, or her acting ability, but I am happy to admit that we both  enjoy food/cooking, we value family and kids, we appreciate fashion, love blogging and last but not least watching Glee – actually probably my favorite [...]

Herb Garlic Bread, Eggs, and Buttery Potatoes

Okay… this is the last of the Parsley Garlic Butter Sauce from my Turkey dinner post. I  have been able to use it for a yummy pasta dish and now some great tasting garlic bread.  Our family can’t have enough of carbs and we all love some good garlic bread.  The buttery herb sauce was [...]

What to do with leftovers? Make Mushroom Linguine with Olive-Tomato Tapenade and Parsley Sauce

Do you remember the Parsley Garlic Butter Sauce from my previous post?   I was able to sneak it into my pasta dish and make another meal for my family.  I was not planning on sharing the recipe, but my husband really liked it and the only way I will remember to make it again is [...]

Butternut Squash Soup with Lime, Sage and Parmesan Pita Croutons

If you love having butternut squash, then you need try it in a soup topped with fried sage leaves and pita chips… yum. It’s light, refreshing… I made this soup sometime ago, but have not had the chance to post it.   I apologize for the delay. This is a Jamie Oliver recipe and you can [...]

Mediterranean Spaghetti with Eggplants, Broccoli & Garlic-herb Tomatoes topped with Feta Cheese

I love pasta! I love it for its convenience, versatility and friendliness.   I can have it pretty much every day, but I try to limit to once a week.  If I am running low on time, or when I am trying to save items from the fridge, pasta can act as my savior.  If you’re [...]
