Brie & Honey

Beautiful ingredients morph into magic when they come together.

If I were in the mood to be decadent, I might’ve buttered my toast. Maybe I will next time. That sounds like something I’d like to do when the weather cools off a bit in a few months. But, […]

Sour Cherry & Brie Sandwich

Sour Cherry & Brie On Oat Nut Bread

Simple desserts just don’t get any better than this. On […]

Steak & Ale Pie

Steak & Ale Pie

Since this was a test, I decided to go with ground beef instead of steak. Also, I’m using button mushrooms in this dish because I happened to have them on hand.

Top this with mashed potatoes and bread crumbs or pastry. Both […]
