Fall has arrived! It seemed as though it may never make an appearance, but it was just being shy. At least that can be said for Southeast Wisconsin. Now, though, we are in the full swing of things. There are beautiful golds, blazing reds and some trees in the midst of transformation. Even as I … Continue reading Lamb Meatballs in a curry with Mustard Seed Corn
I know its been a while since I’ve shared delicious recipes, and for that I apologize. It has been quite an exciting past few months. My backyard is undergoing a transformation from blah to relaxing moon garden (pictures to come upon completion). There has also been two trips – Puerto Rico and Tulum, Mexico!

I won’t do too much blabbing here. Along with the baked fish in a spice broth meal we had apple galette for dessert. The crust was perfectly flaky; the apples were sweet, tart and wonderful. The addition of the raw sugar on the crust added the much needed crunch. So, as promised, keeping this short…on … Continue reading Apple Galette
In high school my aunt started themed movie nights with my sister and I. To be correctly themed, the dinner needed to match the type of movie…for example The Godfather trilogy with Italian food, Bride and Prejudice with Indian food, etc. All dinners were made at home. After my aunt moved back to the Bay … Continue reading Baked Fish in a Spice Broth
For the past three years I have been called upon to bake the cookie of one friend’s husband’s childhood memories. A small, buttery cookie brought to life with shimmering colored sugar. Spritz!
