You're in for a treat. This dish will be the main course for the first night of my upcoming retreat. I've made it twice now, and I will say that I think it tastes much better the second day. Delicious either way, and I'm sure, if you try it, you'll be making it time and time again.

I was in the public library the other day, and as I walked past a display of fall cookbooks, one caught my eye.Entitled An Everlasting Meal, it was the subtitle which led me to pick it up:Cooking with Economy and Grace. Wow, if I could just master that. :)

Honesty is important in blogging, don't you think? So, I want to admit that when I first saw this recipe in a magazine, I wasn't too excited to try it.I was on a layover at the Phoenix airport, and browsing a magazine rack, I picked up the latest edition of Phoenix Home and Garden. With plenty of time to burn, I flipped through the pages and found an article entitledCabbage Is King.

A few days after Christmas, some of my family came together again for a simple dinner.My mom had asked Deirdre, my brother's wife, to make this tart, which she found inThe Tuscan Sun Cookbook by Frances Mayes. Dierdre did a superb job, and the tart tasted as good as it looks :) I hope you'll enjoy it as much as we did. Grazie mille, Deirdre!

A few weeks ago, a couple of my brothers and I attended a conference in San Diego on diabetes.Overall, we learned a great deal, and I loved one of they key thoughts for the day: "What are the complications of controlled diabetes? Absolutely nothing." Certainly an important thing to remember if you're dealing with this disease. Now, on to the gumbo recipe, which was given to us by Bobby Deen,...

While on vacation in California this summer, I picked up a couple of bags of pistachios, one of my favorite nuts.Frankly, I was surprised they've lasted this long, but when I saw this soup on the cover of the latest edition of Vegetarian Times, I knew they wouldn't last for long.This is a super easy and tasty recipe, perfect for the cool fall days ahead. Labeled "guilt free comfort food," you...
