I feel like a bit of an idiot. This blog is not going to be just all my cooking. But I can't seem to find the time to write what I want to write. I have so much stuff tucked here and there - posts from other websites, emails to friends and just random thoughts that I want to record. But until I have more time, meals will fill in!

Dinner on Saturday was a wonderful cheeseburger recommended by a friend at - Cookskorner - a wonderful online cooking/food community that I participate in. The burger is done by the NYTimes method - packed only enough hold together and then cooked with a combination of pan searing and then roasting. I topped it with Saga bleu Brie, bacon and caramelized onions and served it on English muffins. So amazingly good!

Last night was another thing from the same friend - rib eye steaks with a lovely mushroom/ brandy cream sauce, Brussel sprouts sauteed in bacon grease w/ bacon and Boursin potatoes:

Tonight I had a craving as I was leaving work:
Spiced shrimp w/ cocktail sauce, crackers and Boursin

I would love to have a list on the main page of this with links to my favorite websites and blogs. I can't find anything that will tell me how to do that. I can post links within a post, but not something that stays on the side of the blog.


  1. I'm glad to see you pop up on my screen, whatever you're in the mood to say---the writing and the pictures are scrumptious.

    And any glimpse of your welcoming kitchen is nice---is that Banshee's cabinet in the lower left with the shrimp?

  2. Thank you, my dear! Yes that was her cabinet. And, out of sight, just beside it is Otis' porcine valet!

  3. Well, I got some help and figured it out. You will see, my friend that you are now linked properly!
