Want a back-of-the-boat treat for your next docktail get-together? One that your guests will be talking about for a good long while? This is it!

I’ve been trying to come up with ideas for easy meals that can be made with what we have on hand in the galley. Sort of like tossing my Foodie Dice. It’s a fun way to plan meals and is certainly a creative exercise. From time to time I toss my dice (read all about ‘playing with my food’ here) and from time to time […]

The slice of bread and butter served with the lunch-time soup was so tempting…but we remained steadfast. And that glass of wine served with supper… really tough…but we endured. Breakfast Mashed Winter Vegetable Waffles with Smoked Salmon […]

This post isn’t so much about the recipe but more about the occasion. …the occasion of my daughter and grandson’s visit.

We ate the leftovers the next day, and I quickly ran to the store to get more ingredients to reproduce. The crunch, the hint of spice (both radish and jalapeño), the wonderfully rich tangy avocado dressing all that freshness!!   PEARL COUSCOUS SALAD with AVOCADO […]
