Love To Garden: Mint

It's really a joy to grow things yourself, harvest and enjoy eating them. Or to simply revel in the beauty of flowers you planted and grew on your own. My garden is real source of pleasure, entertainment, and of course work. But the work is worth it when I get to enjoy the fruits of... Continue Reading →

A Salad So Good, I Ate The Bowl

Don't read this and think. "Oh sure, she's eating a salad again," because here's the cold, hard truth. I'm snacking. A lot. I also seem to have a sudden affection for all things made with dough: biscuits, dumplings, pasta. And then there's the baking. I don't bake! Now I'm baking. I blame the pandemic, but...

Bacon From Tradition

With apologies for the corny headline,  I'm at the point in this self isolation that I need a break from the same-old-same-old when it comes to making lunch. Sandwiches get boring, even a good old BLT (bacon, lettuce and tomato). We are isolating at home, and there isn't a restaurant close enough to deliver something... Continue Reading →

A Twist on Tortilla Soup

One of the classic dishes you’ll often find in Mexico is tortilla soup. There are a multitude of versions of this dish. We’ve had it made only with broth and served with toppings like avocados and tortilla strips. We’ve had a version with chicken in it, and a version with beef. I decided to try... Continue Reading →

“Impossible” Cheeseburger Pie

A friend's daughter recently graduated from high school, and the friend asked for recipes for her "college survival kit." I dug out this recipe of my mother's because it's an easy and tasty supper dish, and great for a student because it would give her several portions at a reasonable cost. The Bisquick holds the...

Doukhobor Borscht

There’s something special about homemade soup, especially when it’s made with fresh garden vegetables. My friend Cheryl introduced me to this variation on borscht that I had never experienced before. She made such a delicious batch, I had to get the recipe and try it at home. I’m not sure my version was as good... Continue Reading →

Beer battered fish

One of the wonderful delights of living in Cabo San Lucas is the abundance of fresh fish and seafood. Almost every restaurant offers some selection of fish caught that day (catch-of-the-day), and other locally caught delights like shrimp, calamari, lobster, octopus, scallops…the list goes on. We have enjoyed dining out and sampling these different delicacies,... Continue Reading →

Breakfast at supper

We've all had those days when we're at a loss at suppertime - don't know what to make, don't have anything thawed from the freezer, or don't have time to make a traditional supper meal. Eggs are a perfect solution for any meal. This creation was quick to throw together. For this made-up meal, we decided... Continue Reading →

Mexico’s food

We were lucky enough to spend the winter in Mexico, enjoying four and a half months in Cabo San Lucas after a wonderful road trip to get to Baja California Sur. As our time there drew to a close, and knowing that the future is never certain, I reflected on what I loved about our... Continue Reading →
