Caramelized Shallot Hors D’oeuvre

Caramelized Shallot Hors D'oeuvre

Hors D’oeuvres are one of my absolute favorite things to eat.  I love pretty mini-fied food. I would gladly eat entire meals of hors d’oeuvres….and have…..many times.  It’s also my least favorite word to spell.  It’s like cirque du soleil.  I can say it, I just need google to help if I have to write it down.    Read More

It’s finally here!  It is officially that time of year where leaves change, the sun cools, people wear sweaters, and pumpkins are everywhere.  Also, pumpkins are in everything.  For me, it means that as I write this, all the doors and windows are open in my house, the sun is pouring in and the breeze is oh, so lovely.   Read More

Warning: This entire post is about junk food. It happens.

Prosciutto and Chocolate Arancini

We have a lot to talk about.  Number One: uhhh…meat, cheese, and chocolate – are you insane?  Number Two: What the heck is arancini?  Number Three: That risotto looks delicious, but isn’t it a super huge pain to make?Read More
