Coq Au Vin

Coq au Vin 343/365 "People eat because they're hungry. I want to make food that makes people stop eating." -- Bradley Cooper in Burnt.   Have you seen the movie? I really liked it because the viewer had to read between the spoken lines. And the dishes served? Nothing short of a work of art. […]

One Pot Pork Chops with Warm Escarole Salad

One Pot Pork Chops with Warm Escarole Salad - 336/365 It sure is nice to have my appetite back! For the past few years, when I had energy, I'd cook but I wouldn't always eat what I cooked because of the constant nausea brought on by the incessant antibiotics. Thanks to daily intake of bone […]

Chicken Marsala

Chicken Marsala with reduced Marsala wine, infused with porcini mushrooms. - 301/365 I've made a lot of different versions of Chicken Marsala. Most recipes call for only one pan and are relatively fast and easy to make. This recipe calls for a lot of pots/pans but it's the worth effort. Building flavors independently always trumps […]

  Craving. 287/365 I had a serious taco craving, Internet. And being gluten-free didn't slow me down. Tacos in Butter Bib lettuce is just as delicious as the corn stuff. Plus you can eat a lot more! And who doesn't love a lot more tacos? Mr. Wild Dingo gave this two thumbs up. He loves […]

What to Do With Left-Over Cranberry Sauce

Vicious Cycle - 280/365  (Sadly, that's not my wine) Mr. Wild Dingo and I visited relatives in L.A. over Thanksgiving. I brought the cranberry sauce. It got rave reviews and I passed the recipe around (the secret is a lot of ginger). Still, we came home with a bucket of left-over cranberry sauce. So I made another […]

Comfort Soup

Egg Drop in Bone Broth Soup - 252/365 This is my favorite go-to meal for those times when I'm feeling sick or too tired to cook. On the other hand, I do eat it regularly for lunch at least 4 times per week and find it's filling and satisfying. It's a very simple meal to […]

Dutch Baby!

Dutch Baby Pancake - 238/365 Where have I been all my life? Why did I never know about Dutch Baby Pancakes? Apparently, they were all the rage in 1977 when they hit the cover of Sunset magazine. I was a mere 10-year old girl then, whose idea of fun was to turn her pajamas into a […]

Mr. Wild Dingo's Awesome Galette

The Perfect Galette - 224/365 Ever since he accidentally invented the Blueberry Crêpecake, Mr. Wild Dingo has had a hankerin' for a galette. So he did what he always does: obsess over finding  just the right crêpe pan and make me buy it. Like he had to twist my arm? After a few weeks of […]

Flower and Foodie

Chamomile - 202/365 Not much has changed these days. Each day my headaches range from mildly annoying to terrifying migraines.  My energy levels are low to the point I can only do one or two things. Saturday was one of those days. Mr. Wild Dingo was off this week and took over some of my dog […]
