Buttery Zahtar Hummus

Buttery Zahtar Hummus

Oh yes, you did read that right.  This is a recipe for Buttery Zahtar Hummus, and it is made with BUTTER.  I know what you are thinking, is she completely insane?!  When we were shopping at Oaktown Spice Shop last week, the girl asked if we had tried hummus made with butter.  Hum, no, but I […]

Spiced Pita Chips

Spiced Pita Chips

Pet Peeve is when I buy a bag of pita chips, which is overpriced, and I bring it home and it is only 1/4th of the way full.  And half of the chips are crushed.  Not to mention, half the times, the chips are not that fresh.    I quit wasting my money, and now […]

Crushing On

Happy Friday!  I am so glad it is the weekend, how about you?  We had a busy week with our first client event of 2015, and I have been working on back end stuff with Chez Us.  I am ready for a cocktail, and some R&R.  We have a kind of busy weekend planned.  Dinner […]

Chicken Paillard

Is it weird that every time I travel for business, where we tend to eat like crap, I come home craving chicken, and a green salad or endives.  Yes, endives!  No particular chicken recipe, just chicken.  We use to live near a grocery store, and it was easy to swing by on the way home […]

Creamy Thai Curry Kabocha Soup

Creamy Thai Curry Kabocha Soup

You are probably thinking this has become the soup series blog;  promise it hasn’t.  Don’t you just hate January, when everyone gives up everything and all the fun disappears?  I know we do, and while we are chugging along on this detox, we are dreaming of bon bons, cinnamon rolls, fried chicken and waffles.  Even […]

Crushing On

Crushing On

Friday!  I am happy it is Friday, but am wondering;  where has the month gone!  It has been a busy week, still trying to finish up year end, and it seems every time I sit down to do so, I get interrupted.  OY!  We are gearing up for our first project of the year, which […]

Creamy Non-Dairy Broccoli Kale Soup

Creamy Non-Dairy Broccoli Kale Soup

Week one of detox did not go off as planned.  We had unplanned dinners with friends that came up, and we could not refuse!  As well as a busy week training a new employee, which all left us tired and hungry, and eating what wasn’t in the weekly menu plan.  Not going to complain;  as […]



Healthy Eating

Zucchini Noodles with Blistered Tomatoes | Chez Us

Zucchini Noodles with Blistered Tomatoes

For the record, I am not a gadget kind of gal.  In the kitchen or out for that matter, but, especially in the kitchen.  Then my new friend Diana who is a vegetarian, who is not that found of zucchini told me about the spiralizer.  It changed her outlook on the summer squash, and now she […]

Cucumber Chervil Salad | Chez Us

Cucumber Chervil Salad

We have been on a major salad kick this summer.  It all started out when we both became really sick after Memorial Day, and we had no desire to leave the house for anything.  I basically cooked some pretty killer meals using only what we had in the pantry, and what little produce was laying […]

Cleansing Ginger Chicken Soup

Cleansing Ginger Chicken Soup

We survived two weeks of detoxing, or as some folks like to say, cleansing.  Either way, it was friggin’ tough this year.  I am not going to lie, I wanted to gnaw my arm off on more then one occasion.  Lenny was certainly better at it then I was.  Well, if you call eating larger […]

Healthy Tuna Salad

We were asked to participate in the Back to School Communal Table with the Food Network.  It is a one-day event where some of the Summer Fest food bloggers will be bringing a dish to the table that they would either enjoy for lunch themselves or pack for the kids.  It was the perfect opportunity for […]

Detox Soup

Healthy Detox Soup

Happy New Year!  Hoping you had a great holiday season.  We are back home (finally) and getting into the swing of the new year.  Boy, does it feel good.  While 2012 was a good year, I am excited to start fresh!  I have been spending the past couple days wrapping up loose 2012 ends, clearing […]

Cookies

Cherry Chocolate Chunk Oatmeal Cookies  |  Chez Us

Cherry Chocolate Chunk Oatmeal Cookies

We were at a client event a few weeks ago, which meant we were dependent on conference food.  Yuck.  Every afternoon they would bring out trays of stale cookies that claimed to be vegetarian and/or vegan friendly.  In my opinion, they were slices of cardboard in disguise.  Each time I passed those long white tables […]

Chocolate Thumbprints

Chocolate Thumbprints

I had no business making these chocolate thumbprints filled with silky bittersweet chocolate ganache;  but, I did it anyhow.  In the midst of trying to get holiday cards done, year end businesses wrapped up, packing for holiday, I decided it would be a lovely idea to bake some cookies for loved ones.  Silly me … […]

Coconut Macaroon Thumbprint

Coconut Macaroon Thumbprints

Coconut macaroon thumbprints will make a wonderful addition to your Passover menu.  Lenny made coconut macaroons for our Valentine’s dinner at home, and that is when I found out they are his favorite cookie.  All these years, and I have been serving him chocolate chip!  As he was making these coconut macaroon thumbprint, he mentioned […]

Salted Caramel Pecan Chocolate Chip Cookies

Salted Caramel Pecan Chocolate Chip Cookies

Back in April, Ella, asked me a question, that I never thought I would have to explain.  She asked me, point blank, “what does it mean when you have your heart broken?”  The first thought that came to mind, was probably, the same thing you are thinking, love.  That first sweet tender love, when he […]

Peanut Butter Cookie 0610

Peanut Butter Cookies

I am a huge peanut butter fan.  I mean … HUGE.  Nothing like two pieces of bread, slathered with a lot of peanut butter and a touch of jam;  preferably strawberry or grape.  Heck, let’s be honest here, nothing like a big soup spoon full of peanut butter and inserted into MOUTH.  I am not […]
