Quick family meals using left overs and food staples: Chicken and bean quesadillas.
Dover sole, that is. Sole is a kind of flat white fish which means it is low in fat and mild in flavor.

A few nights ago I made this… Continue reading It’s All About Sole (Lemony Dover Sole w/Capers)
Bowl of… sugar?
It’s new. It’s a beginning. Even though this has been not new at all. Not at all for me. For four years I’ve waited for this moment. (And it’s NOT that fried Oreos are a year round treat, though that is quite tempting to propose.) I am finally starting my private practice. Open as of… Continue reading New Beginnings

Yes, I know what you all are thinking. Wow! Your mom cooks for you!! (Ok, maybe not.) Despite my mother’s cooking prowess and… Continue reading Salad… Hold the Chocolate Chips
