 The tallest sunflower I've ever seen is right in the middle of our garden- it must be 12 feet tall! The girth of the stalk is almost 3-inches- it's like a tree!!! #amazingnature  Just harvested. Garlic. Needs to go into the basement for several weeks to cure (dry).
 Crisp-crust pizza with mushrooms, roasted peppers, pancetta, cheese and egg. Oh baby...  Pueblano chilies, roasted, peeled, seeded and stuffed with "quick" refried beans: 1 lg can pinto beans, drained (reserve liquid). Sauté minced yellow onion, garlic, seeded and chopped jalapeño peppers until starting to turn golden. Stir in drained beans. Cook, over medium-low heat, mashing everything together, adding more and more bean liquid (as it evaporates), until beans and vegetables are pretty homogenous and very creamy ( don't be afraid to use all the bean liquidate) -add salt and pepper to taste (beans should be well-seasoned). To assemble: slit peppers on one side and use a paring knife to carefully cut out and remove seed cavity. Fill hollowed peppers with the bean-vegetable mixture and place in greased baking dish and top with shredded cheese (Monterey Jack or- I used Muenster because I didn't have the other). Cover with foil. To bake: bake in a preheated 375f oven, covered, 15 minutes. Uncover and bake until cheese is melted and light golden. SO GOOD!!! #incrediblefood

Sticky Date Cake with (or Without) Toasted Pecan Toffee Sauce and Crème

If you like a dessert that’s really sweet, with incredible texture variation, this one is for you!

Please make every effort to purchase best-quality, dried dates for this cake. You want supple Medjool dates, not the pre-chopped kind in a… ... continue reading


Friends Want Me To Bottle This! Savory Tuna Spread

This dip is so popular with my friends and students that I’ve been asked to manufacture it in bulk, bottle it and sell it to the public! As delicious as this is, however, it only takes a few minutes to prepare. I don’t suggest using a blender in place of a food processor since… ... continue reading


Pumpkin Custard Torte, with a Ganache Top, Garnished with Crushed Toasted Pepita Praline & Chocolate Leaves

Whether for Thanksgiving or Christmas, this dessert is—to put it bluntly– drop-dead gorgeous! More importantly, the flavor and texture combination of the creamy pumpkin custard, the bittersweet chocolate ganache topping and the cookie crumb crust is just sensational. And, just to guild the lily, the top border is sprinkled with crunchy pepita (pumpkin-seed) praline and the top center is decorated with overlapping, life-like chocolate leaves. Although this recipe is “involved,”… ... continue reading
