I enjoyed a wonderful day in the Napa Valley with my friend Tina yesterday afternoon. We started our adventure at the Culinary Institute of America at Greystone where we attended a cooking demo by the talented Chef Bobby Childs. Chef Childs served up our Goat Cheese stuffed Turkey Sliders and Red Pepper-Apricot Relish with a … Continue reading

Panko & Almond Crusted Tilapia with Sauteed Chard & Prosciutto
Is it the onset of summer or are we almost a month into fall? I’m confused! One moment we’re faced with the threat of rain while the aroma of firewood fills the cool night air and the next we’re pulling the fans back out of storage as we endure very still, warm sleepless nights. Sigh…. As much as I’m … Continue reading
Tuna Casserole Fit for a Feline!
Today is my precious Noelle’s 14th birthday! I can hardly believe it. I remember when she and her brother both fit in the palm of my hands at a tiny 8 weeks old. We lost our precious Andy, Noelle’s brother, earlier this summer to heart disease. A gentle and clumsy giant at 18 lbs, Andy … Continue reading
Mediterranean Tuna Salad
While I wait for the new Chipotle to open within walking distance of my office (can you say D-A-N-G-E-R-O-U-S!?), I continue my search for lunch ideas that are simple, tasty and healthy. Not leaving myself with a whole lot of time in the morning to prepare lunch, my lunches need to be items I can prepare … Continue reading
Fish Veracruz en Papillote
Looking for a light, healthy and delicious spin on baked fish? I got you covered! I ran across Fish Veracruz en Papillote in an issue of Cuisine at Home. The vividness of the bright red tomatoes and red jalapeno’s (which I’ve never seen before!) in the picture caught my eye. Cooking en papillote basically means … Continue reading
Contrary to this posts title, it has nothing to do with wings and everything to do with “wingin’ it” in the kitchen! No recipe necessary, it’s all about using your imagination and creativity! 🙂 No one can ever say that I don’t stretch my leftovers. As you’re about to read, this is my third crab … Continue reading
Allison’s Omelet FAIL!
It’s been a long and exhausting week. I had some eggs and some kick ass fixings (mushrooms, green onions, avocado, crab and gruyere cheese) and the bright idea to make an omelet. Mistake #1, why am I thinking? Mistake #2 putting my Pampered Chef cheese grater thingy together left-handed. That made grating the cheese interesting being … Continue reading
Feelin’ Crabby! ;)
TRUTH: sometimes I sit at my desk during quiet times at work and fantasize about what I’d like to have for dinner. Before I’ve even eaten lunch. 😉 Today I had crab on the mind. I think we can thank a visit with my Godparents yesterday afternoon, knowing crab was on their dinner menu, for my … Continue reading

Who will it be between?! Oh the anticipation!! Most importantly, what will you be preparing for the big day?? The rain, … Continue reading
Fish Taco’s. Crispy or Grilled?
As if I didn’t consume enough salt last night, I dove back in wide-eyed and bushy-tailed this afternoon. Still feeling a tad dehydrated, what appealed the most was an ice-cold slushy Jamba Juice. However, knowing that at some point I’d be hungry, I knew JJ wasn’t going to cut it. I found myself at Baja Fresh contemplating their “Fresh … Continue reading
