Salade Lyonnaise

This one’s going to be short but sweet (or rather, savory…whatever).  I realized recently that I hadn’t posted in a while due to the yearly and entirely necessary journey into the dark days of low-carb eating.  Ouch.  It really is the … Continue reading

Grilled Chicken with Figs and Prosciutto and Roast Pumpkin Salad

Like most Americans growing up in the 70’s, my only contact with a fig was in the form of a Newton.  I didn’t even know what a fig was, much less what it looked like or tasted like (unlike S. … Continue reading

Bell Pepper and Goat Cheese Frittata
