Blue Cheese and Pecan Spread

Absolutely delicious spread (recipe here). I did substitute pecans for the walnuts, because they’re just so much better! The spread would be fantastic in the tea sandwiches, as specified, but was also wonderful on crackers. Would also be good on apples or celery sticks.

New Potato Salad

This potato salad (recipe here) is one from Ina Garten. Every single one of her recipes that I’ve ever made has turned out beautifully and was delicious; that chick knows her stuff! I made this batch with Yukon Gold potatoes, because that’s what I had on hand today, but it really is better with new […]

Chocolate-Peppermint Stick Ice Cream

I made this fantastic ice cream after reading David Lebovitz’s fantastic article, “Scooped” (an interactive online version can be found here)  in the June/July 2009 issue of Fine Cooking (it had been tucked away in my files for a while.) It is a “Create Your Own Ice Cream” guide and gives a basic custard recipe, […]

Chicken Dijon

Recipe here. I served ours over rice, with crispy kale, rather than with bread, as was suggested in the recipe. This was fantastic and made the house smell amazing as it was cooking.  I made it with 4 drumsticks and 4 thighs, because I had 4 whole legs on hand that I just cut in […]

Leftover Thanksgiving Turkey Enchiladas

Recipe here. These have been a post-Thanksgiving tradition in our house for the past couple of years. Quite simple, since the sauce starts with canned enchilada sauce, but then is doctored up to make it taste fresh and yummy.
