 Every week when I buy groceries, one item that always ends up in my cart is boneless skinless chicken breasts. While they're the perfect starting point and you can pretty much cook them a million ways, finding new and delicious ways to present the same ol', same ol',...

Just in case you noticed, I've been off the grid for a little bit. Not only did I have the holidays to contend with but my oldest daughter got hitched just last weekend, which meant lots for dear old mom to do. It was a hectic few months, but alas, the wedding ceremony...

Yesterday was one of those days when I didn't have a whole lot of time to make supper but when considering my options, I was really in the mood for something different, something special, something 'exotic', for lack of a better word. But is there a suppertime meal tha...

We've all had one of those days where you stare aimlessly into your fridge and pantry, hoping to God that inspiration jumps out at you and strikes your fancy. This past Sunday, it was a miserable old day here - rain, drizzle, fog, 14 degrees Celsius, (approximately 57...

Yesterday was one of those days when, despite the best of intentions and meticulous planning, (ok, not so much with the meticulous planning but certainly, as always, with the very best of intentions) time got away from me. I was left with only 50 minutes to prep, cook,...

Dreaming is a pretty neat phenomenom. Sometimes I dream I can fly and other times, I can leap tall buildings in a single bound. But yesterday morning when I woke, although I couldn't remember all of the details of my dream, I could still smell the aroma of Mediterranea...
