  • Gluten Free Braised Lamb Ravioli With Shitake Parsley Broth

    I hope that everyone celebrating Thanksgiving this past week had a wonderful time doing so. I can safely say this Thanksgiving ranks high in the “best to date” for us. The food was outstanding. The company was delicious. Oh wait. It should be the other way around…As I told B. that evening after a strong […]

  • Drunken Pumpkin Bourbon Tart With Mascarpone Cream

    Holidays really have a tendency to make us marvel at the time gone by year after year don’t they? We shake our heads in denial and wonder how can time fly by this fast. Right now I am grinning as I look at the calendar, thinking that I’ve done a lot and yippee there is […]

The answer as you can see from the pictures below is no. Not at all. All the possessions in the world will never equate the intense sense of […]

  • Fiadone, A Corsican Dessert & A Giveaway
