At the Kindred Table...

Matcha Noodles with Ahi Tuna Poke and Sake made the menu. 
I adore this pretty little dish.

Reunited...

As much as I love travelling I really miss my Fitz while I am away. This guy came back from camp  squeaky clean, totally exhausted and absolutely adorable.

Friends in Philly...

Nothing says LOVE like a couple of friends who are willing to travel to Philadelphia to see a dance concert. Aim, Pen, and I took in all sorts of sights before meeting up with Emma at Temple. She performed beautifully in a serious work before we treated her to a delicious dinner in the city.
A fun week-end all around!

Food for my Valentine...

During our first chat Leif told me his favorite meal was meatloaf, mashed potatoes and corn. I worried he had spent too much time in cafeterias, but 23 years later this is our food of love.

Rock the House 2018...


We Rocked the House once again this year to raise funds for the SoR scholarship fund and the OPRHC and we added a special speakeasy twist to the event. For an added donation quests could enter the speakeasy for a mixed drink and food pairing experience. My bestie, Aim, tricked out the space and I provided the food pairings for a duo of super fun cocktails.



 Porchetta Style Roulade with Apple Butter, Pickled Squash, Sage Soil. Pumpernickel Crumble, Marigold and Hibiscus. Folks enjoyed this bad boy this with a rosemary old fashioned in the Speakeasy! 

Another dish to pair with a Ginger Collins in the speakeasy: Matcha noodles, ahi tuna poke, cucumber, dragon fruit, mango, coconut, orchid, yuzu tobiko and tangerine lace.
And of course a boatload of tenny-tiny cheesecake jars.

Cassoulet at Home...
















Our annual cassoulet dinner is one of my favorite nights of the year. I spend days making the cassoulet and baking bread, Leif sources the French wines and beers, and friends bring the salad and dessert. I make the dining room as pretty as possible and we all settle in for a dreamy French-country inspired meal. Delicious in every way.
