Sour Cherry Syrup & Flavored Yogurt

Have you heard about all of the wild things they put in good old fashioned {commercial} brands of yogurt? Some contain high fructose corn syrup; others have pork-derived gelatin. If you’ve visited this blog before, you know I’m absolutely against the addition (and creation of) high fructose corn syrup in anything. Additionally, foods with swine are not halal (permissible). That ... Read More »

Creme Fraiche, Figs and Honey

Honey is one of my absolute favorite food and health items.  I don’t consider it as just a food, but also a medicine and a beauty product. Whenever I have an upset stomach, I take a heaping tablespoon of honey and normally feel the stomach ache disappear. To soften my skin, I make my own honey facials. In baking, I use ... Read More »

Cherry Tomato and Sharp Cheddar Cheese Quiche

One of my favorite things about pie crust is that it’s so versatile once you have some ideas of what to do with it.

Chez Colette and Breakfast Eggs with Smoked Salmon

On a cold, blustery winter day in search of some comfort food in a warm setting, we trekked out to a French-American restaurant called Chez Colette.  Actually, anything would have been warmer than outside at that time, but this place was especially inviting. Conveniently located inside the Sofitel Hotel in Rosemont, IL near Chicago’s O’Hare airport and the Rosemont Convention ... Read More »

Frittata al Tonno (Tuna Omelet)

  What’s so ironic about writing about food and testing recipes all day is that I find myself looking for quicker meals to make than I ever have before. I work two steps away from my kitchen, yet most days I have very little time to make extravagent meals. Well, I figure many others are just as busy and most people ... Read More »

It resulted in one of the fluffiest and most delicious frittatas we’ve ever had-simplicity at its ... Read More »
