Ok so I cheated on this dinner but I thought I do that a lot. Why not post easy great meals using some store bought short cuts. There is a lot of sodium in the Near East Pilaf and really all store bought rice blends so I do not salt anything else. If you want […]

Forget using a store bought spaghetti sauce just look at all the sodium. Making sauce from scratch is remarkably easy and takes minutes to prep. This is the core sauce menu but there are a ton of ways you can jazz this sauce up: Add 1/2 cup Red wine while browning the turkey meat Add […]
Ok so anyone who knows me knows I do not bake and my dessert experience is pretty horrible. I occasionally try my hand at dessert but I don’t want left overs around because I will finish them off. So a Jello pudding pie with SF pudding and NF cool whip seems like good choice.
Grilled ham and cheese on crack! So easy to make it is great for breakfast lunch or dinner. Sweet savory everything you could want in a sandwich.
Now to put my scratch Demi Glace to use. I decided to make a Chasseur sauce or “hunters” sauce. The sauce was originally credited to have been created by Philippe De Mornay.

Ok not that this is the final step but..
Espagnole sauce is one of the five french mother sauces. I made the beef stock yesterday in anticipation of making this sauce from it and further turning it into Demi Glace. I have been looking for a culinary challenge for awhile and going from scratch to Demi Glace has been just that. Two days and […]
So I have been on kind of a kick about welsh rarebit. But I really don’t want to just make it to serve on toast points seems kind of underwhelming. I made Welsh rarebit yorkshire pudding the other day and it was just “ok” so I wanted to try something else. I decided to try […]
I need something to do with the fresh horseradish root I bought for the Dr.Pepper short rib recipe. I googled some ideas for salad dressings and found a Martha Stewart recipe. This is adapted from that recipe. We are lucky in this area to have Bay water Farms hydroponic Bibb lettuce available in most grocery […]
I have never made beef stock from scratch. I always use a high quality store bought stock or beef base. I want to make a espagnole sauce. This is one of the 5 French mother sauces it is the “brown sauce” I will talk more about the “Mother sauces” in another post. But I want […]
