Is it possible to have too much of a good thing? Well quite possibly. However when your very favourite things to eat are expensive and seasonal, they tend to be treats you save for special occasions like birthdays, anniversaries, or pay-day the month after you did a crazy amount of overtime....more
I don’t care if you summer in Newport or or Hyannis Port, if your house has more than 10 bedrooms, kindly refrain from referring to it as “the cottage.” You’re not fooling anyone. A mansion by any other name is still the same, regardless of how old and gray the clapboard is. In the kitchens of these time-warped cottages, mayonnaise still flows and squeaky lap dogs run free, while lobsters wear rubber bands and prepare for their final squealing swim.

I want to be the one to teach you that, because you never really forget a person who profoundly changes the way you see the world. It’s selfish, I know, but it’s also very generous of me....more
Some days you just need a comforting dish to make everything seem better. It's been a rough week and after a long day Monday to start my week, comfort food and a little luxury food seemed to be in order.
