One of the best things about winter time is making big pots of hearty soups and stews. This beef stew is one of my absolute favourites. To maximize its deliciousness, it does require a little bit of extra love and effort, but it’s not particularly difficult, and it is definitely worth it.
I. Love. Cookies. If I could only choose one baked good to eat for the rest of my life it would be cookies (specifically chocolate chip), and these oatmeal chocolate chip cookies are pretty high up on my list of cookies that I love.
While visiting my family over thanksgiving weekend, a lovely friend of ours gave us a heap of vegetables fresh from her garden including some leeks, a big bag of potatoes, squash, eggplant and some fresh bay leaves. The first thing I made with them was this creamy potato leek soup with bacon.
How often do you find yourself sitting around thinking: “Wow…I could really use some focaccia bread right now.”? If your answer is never, I don’t think we can be friends. I LOVE a good focaccia bread, and this rosemary focaccia is particularly delightful.
