Braised Leg of Lamb with Dried Prunes and Toasted Almonds

Joy! I just reserved my whole lamb for this year. But now I’m thinking maybe I should have ordered two instead… Ah, if only it weren’t that pricey. Sometimes I wish lamb meat was just as widely available and affordable as beef is. I would more than gladly swap my beef for it. Granted, it wouldn’t work with every single dish, but for those dishes where […]

Introducing Matilde!

Sorry guys, I don’t have a recipe for you today… Truth is, I haven’t had much time to write or cook in the past couple of days. I’ve been busy doing other very important things, you see? Indeed, my daughter gave birth to our beloved and eagerly awaited little Matilde, my first grand-child, early yesterday morning. I was blessed enough […]

Salted Caramel Roasted Cashews Chocolate Squares

If you guys don’t mind, I’ll be very brief tonight. My daughter is here, the contractions have started a few hours ago, so it looks like we’ll be heading out to the hospital sometime soon.  As you can very well imagine, I’m a bundle of nerves and writing doesn’t come all that naturally… Besides, I don’t think […]
