Chinese Steamed Egg Custard

I started to feed my son Leo this Chinese steamed egg custard since he was 10 months old.  He is 16 months old now and he loves this silky smooth tender egg custard. He always opens his mouth widely when he sees a spoonful of egg approaching.  He knows it’s yummy. ...more

Spiced Wine Jelly

I know, I know ... who has leftover wine sitting around? Well, I did. I needed to open a bottle of wine for a dessert I was making, but it was about 10 in the morning ... not time to have wine, for me anyways!  So, the rest of the bottle just sat there all day and by the time dinner rolled around, I completely forgot that I had opened it. I'm not a huge fan of leftover wine. Even when stored properly, I just can't seem to enjoy it. It always seems to have a sour taste to it. ...more

I realized that was time to stop the nonsense and embrace this wonderful fall squash. ...more

Sage Pesto

Sage is an herb that I love but I don't have many uses for until Thanksgiving rolls around. Besides making sage smudge stick ... how much sage can one really consume? This year, my sage is absolutely crazy! I planted regular sage this year, usually I do purple or golden sage and the plants grow well but not as huge as this year. I don't know if it was the weather conditions or if it's just this type of sage that loves my garden. Regardless, I'm not complaining. ...more
