Crushing On

Did all of our US readers have a great Thanksgiving?  We had a wonderful time with old friends and new;  we over indulged, enjoyed great food, shared old memories and created new.  It was really a lovely time in the desert.  Now it is time to enjoy all of the turkey leftovers, right?  I have […]

Slow Cooker Spicy Cauliflower Chicken Chowder

Slow Cooker Spicy Cauliflower Chicken Chowder

Last week, as I was stumbling around in my post-London early rising state, I went into the kitchen made coffee at a too much of an early time, then settled in at my desk.  As I opened my RSS feed, and began catching up on days lost, Amy’s soup completely grabbed me and pulled me […]

Leftover Turkey Tacos with Cranberry Avocado Salsa

Leftover Turkey Tacos with Cranberry Avocado Salsa

I want you to put away that can of jellied cranberry, well, or at least serve it alongside a bowl of freshly made cranberry.  Why?  Because you need to save a cup of those fresh cranberries, or do as I do, and buy a couple bags to have on hand for holiday baking (I keep […]

Crushing On

Crushing On

Busy.  Busy.  Busy.  Week.  I feel like the week raced in, and then raced out.  I was completely overwhelmed this week with playing catch up after being in London last week.  Not to mention, major London withdrawals.  Yep, kind of fell in love with that damn city, and we kept having the dreamy conversation about […]

Thanksgiving Dinner

Thanksgiving Dinner

How did that happen?  Thanksgiving being a mere week away.  I kind of realized it but kind of didn’t until I got a text from a friend asking if he should pick up ingredients at the Farmer’s market for me.  YIKES!  Ingredients?  There is a menu?  What is this thing called Thanksgiving Dinner?     All […]

Taco Tuesday

We are back from a long two months of client events.  Whew …. feels good to be home, even though I am kind of missing the last city we were in.  More to come about that, sooner than later.  In the meantime, I had good intentions of sharing a new taco recipe today but couldn’t […]



What’s In Season

Mushroom Chicken Alfredo Lasagna | Chez Us

Mushroom Chicken Alfredo Lasagna

Comfort food at it’s best, is exactly what this recipe for Mushroom Chicken Alfredo Lasagna is.  Inspired over a dinner in the Azores with our 18 year old nephew Matthew, who happens to enjoy cooking, he wondered out loud about a lasagna made with Alfredo sauce.  I tucked away that thought, as I knew it […]

Roasted Pear Crumble

Roasted Pear Crumble

Let me just start off by saying that this recipe is not an ordinary pear crumble, it has been taken to the next level by roasting the pears and by flavoring it with more of that amazing Tonewood Maple, which we are in love with.  This roasted pear crumble will definitely be making an appearance […]

Beef Stew with Potato Dumplings

Beef Stew with Potato Dumplings

It is definitely fall around our neighborhood.  What trees there are, are slowly turning shades of yellow and red.  The mornings are dewy and cold when I leave for the gym.  And the afternoons are crisp and slightly cooler come dinner time.  I have been slowly adding comfort food such as this beef stew with […]

Roasted Spaghetti Squash

Meatless Monday | Roasted Spaghetti Squash

Last week we received a spaghetti squash in our FullCircle delivery.  I realized that I have only shared the experience once before, and that was without a recipe.  We are big fans of this mysterious squash that resembles spaghetti once it is cooked, but knew very little about it.  After doing some poking around we […]

Delicata Stuffed Shells 1011

Delicata Squash Pasta Shells with Brown Butter Bechamel

Hello Old Friend!   You may have noticed that we have been in and out for the past couple months.  We have been going through some pretty big changes the past couple months.  Changes filled with mixed emotions;  bittersweet, and new growth.  We have always said, change is good.  It is good to shake things […]

Fall Cocktails

Dark and Stormy | Chez Us

Dark and Stormy

It was a dark and stormy night when we made this how-to-video for you, featuring one of our favorite cocktails, the Dark and Stormy.  The video was part of an assignment in our online how to shoot food videos group that Lenny is leading, and we had to shoot this video with one light, and […]

Wine Spritzer

Wine Spritzer

I have steered clear of wine spritzer type cocktails since my early days of drinking.  Back then it was often a overly sweet and fruity drink that left a headache afterwards.  Then I discovered the fine art of adding ice to my glass of Rose during a trip to the south of France.  Being from […]

Sparkling Apple Cider

Sparkling Apple Cider

We almost had November slide by without a give away of thanks.  Completely my (Denise) fault as I have been playing major catch-up on everything else besides the gratitude give aways.  Sorry about that!  Not only do we have a little something to share with one lucky reader;  but, there is a recipe as well. […]

Gin and Tonic

Making Ice Cubes and a Summer Classic Gin and Tonic

We have been talking about how to stock your home bar, on and off, for the past couple months.  With summer around the corner and icy beverages on all of our minds, it only seemed appropriate to talk ice. We have been in Las Vegas a couple times this month for work.  When we get […]

Whiskey Sour

Homemade Sour Mix and a Whiskey Sour

Not sure about you but we are really happy that it is Friday;  it has been a week.  To kick off the weekend we are going to talk about Bar Basics, items that your home bar should have.  The first item we want to talk about is the Sour Mix. Sour mix is basically equal […]
