Welcome Fall

Monday, September 23rd, 2013

Fall is here and after a glorious summer I am ready for it. There is just something about early fall that I find incredibly inspiring, I manage to be super productive and upbeat. Of course that might not last when the weather turns nasty but then there is always the food!! I love an excuse to indulge in comfort food and who can ignore the wonderful abundance of root vegetables that harvest time brings. We celebrate fall every year with lots of scrumptious variations on root vegetable mash. Here is a recipe from Tyler Florence that looks like a good one, yum!
Happy fall:)


Yummy Strawberry Sauce

Thursday, June 9th, 2011

Strawberry season is near so if you have a hankering for cheesecake, try topping it with a yummy Strawberry Sauce infused with Grand Marnier liqueur using a recipe I found on Recipe Source.


1/2 cup Sugar
1 1/2 tbsp Cornstarch
1 cup Orange juice
1/4 cup Grand Marnier liqueur
6 cups Sliced hulled strawberries

In a 2 to 3 quart saucepan, stir  the sugar, cornstarch, orange juice and  liqueur until smooth. Bring to a boil over medium high heat, stirring until clear and thickened. Stir in the sliced strawberries until well combined. Let cool and serve over vanilla ice cream.
