Lightened Up Greek Style Stuffed Peppers

Have you ever had a craving so strong for one particular dish that you obsessed over it until you just plain had to make it? Yeah. I guess I probably do that more often than the average bear, but I had a seriously overpowering urge to eat stuffed peppers for about 3 weeks before I finally gave in ....more

Chocolate Pretzel Sheet Cake

I felt so badly for one of my son’s ballet teachers after she had a tough week that I offered to bring a snack to share with her after class. I asked “salty or sweet” and she responded, “Both?”.

Pain au Chocolat – French Chocolatine

Nearly all of my most vivid memories come back to food. I’m willing to bet that this says something about my psyche, but there it is. The basket of dinner rolls my grandma would tuck aside for me at Thanksgiving, the drippy pudding pops that my sibs and I would ‘sneak’ from the freezer (with our parents’ permission), my mom’s lumpia, my dad’s zucchini burgers, my stepmom’s oatmeal bread, the Pain au Chocolate or French Chocolatine* that I ate near my school in France… These are all tastes so imprinted in my mind that if I take just one silent moment with closed eyes, I can almost actually taste them ....more
