  • The Milky Moon

    David and I got these amazing Tarot of Cocktail cards through Kickstarter. They are the kind of project that I wish I had come up with myself with my background in art and my love for cocktails. They are comprised of 30 beautifully illustrated cards with tarot themes and a craft cocktail recipe on each. Katy’s inventory […]

  • 3 Cheese Mini Macs

    macaroni6

    These cute and creamy mac & cheese bites are a fun appetizer for a party, but I like to bake them in regular muffin tins for a fun and homemade tv dinner (or more like movie dinner in my house).  American cheese is not something I usually buy, although I do love it on diner cheeseburgers and […]

The toast with the creamy goat cheese is a lovely accompaniment. from: Cooking For Jeffrey serves: 6 good olive oil 2 […]

  • Asparagus & Fennel Soup

    I have to agree with Ina, asparagus and fennel are great by themselves, but together they complement each other and taste even better. The addition of Pernod is a genius idea, the anise plays well with the fennel, but it’s not overpowering. After pureeing the soup, I tasted it and decided it did not need […]
