I googled Irish Seafood and a small school of Irish Seafood Chowder recipes surfaced. That made me smile. I […]

Recipe inspired by the “Fire Caps” at Firehouse Brewing Company, Rapid City, SD Last weekend my boyfriend stole me away … he suddenly decided we needed to go to the Black Hills and threatened to take his mom instead of me. Ouch. We had a pact, you see. I had agreed to go camping in […]

with Havarti and MontAmoré cheese We traveled this weekend and I came home to asparagus and mushrooms in my refrigerator that, in our rush to get ready, I’d neglected to cook before the trip.

This dish is so elegant you’ll feel like you’re eating at a fancy restaurant, but it’s super simple to make. You can make it with any firm white fish like tilapia, walleye, or bass. I’ve tried it twice now: once with fresh walleye, once with silver bass and both times it turned out fabulous. I […]

I have a huge fondness for jalapeno poppers, but sometimes those hot peppers are just a little too much even for my fire-lovin’ tongue. I am totally in love with the little sweet peppers that have been popping up lately, though, so much so that I got my parents to grow some in their garden this […]
