"French" Martini

"French Martini"
I'm feeling a bit nostalgic.

I used to manage a large region for a staffing company. If you know anything about the staffing business, let's just say it's pretty high stress and cut throat. And getting new business is brutal. Your prospects hate (hate with a capital H) you. Don't get me started on how many buildings I've been thrown out of. Fortunately, as hard won as they are, your clients love you (until their purchasing departments find someone cheaper, regardless of the quality, but I'm not bitter).

Homemade Orange Sherbet

This Homemade Orange Sherbet has a vibrant fresh orange flavor and is a great way to capture the flavors of the winter citrus bounty any time of year.

Homemade Orange Sherbet

Orange sherbet seems like such a simple dish that would be easier to buy rather than make it yourself. What makes homemade so special?

Blue Curacao Margarita


Happy Friday. I took the day off today and took a certain four year old to Pretend City.  He had a wonderful time. I must add though that I have never had such a vocal back seat driver. Although he's never been to our destination, he definitely had strong opinions on the directions. Fortunately, we made it to our destination just the same.

Tangelo Ricotta Cake



This is a cake that you can (and should) bake ahead, because it is actually better and more moist on the second or third day. I'm not sure why... maybe it's the ricotta... maybe it's the glaze.
