Thanksgiving 2017 – Dinner Rolls

Saturday, 02 December 2017

To say that my family is quirky is probably generous (just ask my older brother Eric). I won’t go into the gruesome details of the craziness but here’s one weird thing: My husband is Alan; my Father, Allen; my step-daughter’s boyfriend, Alan; our daughter-in-law’s Father, Allen. My son is Alex; his girlfriend is Alex; my step-daughter is Alex. It’s weird right? Maybe a bit confusing at times. Anyway - this year, my year to have Thanksgiving at my house, we had just one Alan (my husband) and all of the Alexes. My son’s girlfriend Alex brought her parents Craig and Barbara and they’re lovely. Also, my dear dear neighbor Pam and her son Owen graced our table as did my Mother.

Buttermilk Biscuits

Friday, 20 December 2013

This is my last November post and my last “we took Thanksgiving on the road” post. Time to put Thanksgiving to rest for 2013. This post is about buttermilk biscuits. My niece Becca made them.

So here’s the genesis of the buttermilk biscuits and a therapeutic disclosure. . .. curious? So I cook. It’s what I like and love to do. I would read recipes and experiment in the kitchen all day most...

Why In The World Would I Ever Make A Cracker?

Sunday, 31 March 2013

About two years ago I got a call from my good friend Disa in Denmark (wintercoat.dk.com). Disa and I exchange recipes – well mostly she sends me hers as she’s a very inventive and original cook. Disa said she was sending me a recipe for crackers and that I had to make them. Sure, I said. I had absolutely no intention of making crackers. Crackers are something that you buy at the store to put lovely cheese on for a snack or appetizer – sometimes with fig jam first. You can buy really nice crackers here in the States. I just thought maybe they didn’t have good crackers in Denmark or something. I wasn’t about to make them but I just told her ‘sure.’ About a week later she emailed to ask if I had made the...
