I may have a new addiction…and I may or may not have devoured more than half this tin the moment I wrapped up filming. Monkey bread is beautifully composed of pillowy soft balls of dough that are buttered, rolled in sugar and spice then soaked in gooey, sticky caramel sauce. Welcome to my newest obsession. […]

I remember the first time I served this at family supper.  My baby brother wrinkled his nose as I lay out a platter of fresh berries drizzled with balsamic syrup and whipped cream.  He remained skeptical until he took his first bite and as his teeth sank into that first ripe berry dripping with thick […]

Kabocha Squash Porridge

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Growing up, this was one of my mama’s favorite soups.  When the leaves began to fall, you could bet that a big pot of this would be simmering away on the stove top.  I didn’t really appreciate it then {opting for more conventional and boring soups of the chicken noodle variety} but now, I can’t […]
