Eat All the Sides!

We are about to conclude our non-traditional week!  Sorry for the delay, we had some cookery up our sleeves this weekend and our poor hands and minds were a bit too tired for posting!  But, with the weekend behind us, we are ready to keep on with the Thanksgiving craziness!  We went a little veggie/healthy…

Quick Chicken Coq Au Vin with Roasted Carrots and Bite Size Potatoes!

Everyone has a comfort food that makes them want to hug their plate and sometimes it’s as simple as creating a fragrant, thick and caramelized sauce that warms the heart!

Our inspiration for this dip came from an episode of Iron Chef America which is more addictive than, well, hummus! The secret ingredient in this…

Fair Time Funnel Cake!

The dog days of summer have come to an end and fair season is right around the corner! What better way to celebrate than with some good old fashioned funnel cake. Our original plan was to make the batter from scratch until I remembered that we had recently received a Funnel Cake making kit from our wonderfully thoughtful…
