French Onion Soup

April 27, 2008 at 9:33 pm | Posted in Dinner | 1 Comment

This recipe comes from a card that came along with my lovely Dutch Oven! Thank you Martha Stewart!

Laurita apparently loves onion soup and boy so do I. I remember having this soup for lunch in a little touristy restaurant in Paris in the 1st or 2nd near the Louvre, but I don’t remember it being that great, so I have tended to steer away from onion heavy dishes.

But I thought it was time to give this recipe a try and bring some new flavor contrasts to my palette! (…and yes I thought it would also be delightful fun to try and burn some bread in the oven!)

On Saturday, some of my family members and I ventured up to State College, PA to watch my cousin, Maggie play lacrosse in her last home game of her freshman year! The game was really exciting to watch, and although the girls weren’t able to clench the win, Mags and I still had fun eating some creamery delciousness!

Our godbrother (yes I know that sounds odd) had a housewarming party on Saturday and of course there was some baking to be had to add to the festivities! As I spent most of last week preparing my cheesecake pops, I felt I needed to find something quick and delicious to make! Coconut and Lime saved me again!

Well these babies smelled positively delicious with the addition of the swirled caramel and chocolate chips!

My best friend from high school will be giving birth to precious Quinn’y’ in a short week or two so I wanted to make something delicious for her to enjoy in her remaining days of freedom!! She told me she loves yellow cake with choco frosting, so here we go! Barefoot at Home came through for me with some slight changes!

I combined two recipes to concoct this deliciousness!- The cake from her coconut cake and the frosting from Beatty’s chocolate cake!

broccoli & chicken bake with some extra amelie!

April 17, 2008 at 10:29 pm | Posted in Dinner, Entertainment | Leave a comment

Cook’s Country inspired Laura and I to create this savory and tasty dish for dinner that lasted a good two nights!

and for our entertainment pleasure, our first netflix rental: amelie- ALL IN FRENCH!! Mind you I do not speak french very well (or hardly at all for that matter…). But since the remote for our TV with built in DVD has been long gone since we moved in last year, all I could do was hit play…no subtitles for us lovely ladies! Nevertheless, amelie is the most delightful movie, even without supposed witty banter. 😀

it’s just another muffin monday…

Well my dear friend Jesica is in town apartment hunting in Baltimore, so I wanted to make sure we had some nice breakfast treats for her stay (and some lunch treats for Laurita, of course) (and some anytime chocolate treats for me!). After our first muffin inspiration (lemon poppyseed) “fell through” I decided to go back to red fruit (like last time) and got some fresh raspberries!

I used the same basic recipe as last time but changed up the flavors and the texture came out a little different too!

Our dining experience pleasantly confirmed the Baltimore Sun’s review and we will definitely go back!
