Potato Leek Soup-4

The weather has turned which means it’s soup season. I love fall, it’s my favorite season of the year. Pumpkin patches, and Halloween, fall cooking and Thanksgiving, boots and sweaters. Right? My kids love soup, so once the weather turns I try to cook at least two a week. Q is a picky eater, but […]

Roasted Brussels Sprouts with Hazelnuts

by angelika on November 9, 2011

I think Brussels Sprouts get a bad rap. They are incredibly delicious, provided you prepare them well. They are also part of the cruciferous vegetable family, which are loaded with anti-cancer compounds. My personal favorite way to eat Brussels sprouts is to roast them, I find that they get a really nutty flavor. In this […]


I got a little heat last holiday season for posting my favorite Thanksgiving recipes after the holiday. This year I am making an effort to post my favorites before the big day, for those of you who like to plan. My Butternut Squash soup is a little different from your average squash soup in a […]


Asparagus Brie Soup

by angelika on April 29, 2011

For Easter dinner we made one of the most decadent, delicious soups I have every had the pleasure of eating. Asparagus Brie Soup. Believe it or not, I got this recipe from a hotel caterer! We have a conference every January for my job, and one year this was served. I don’t even remember where at this point. 99% […]


Root Vegetable Pot Pie with Cheddar Biscuit Crust

by angelika on December 2, 2010

The Root Vegetable Pot Pie has been the center of our Thanksgiving dinner for at least 5 years. Maybe longer. I made this dish the day before Little Man was born, and I often look back at the pictures of our last Thanksgiving as a family of two. I am huge and swollen, clearly over […]

Butternut Squash Risotto

by angelika on November 13, 2010

Risotto is one of my favorite dishes. It is so versatile, so decadent, so filling. I love to treat risotto seasonally, using what I find fresh at the market. In the summer fresh corn risotto is one of my favorites, in the spring baby zucchini or fresh peas. This is the kind of dish that […]

Acorn Squash Soup with Roasted Garlic

by angelika on October 9, 2010

For me, soup is the archetypical comfort food. There is nothing more cosy that a warm and soothing cup of soup. It can be a light dinner with a salad and some bread. It can be the start of a delicious journey through chapters of culinary masterpieces. I often judge a restaurant based on the […]

Fig and Goat Cheese Tart

by angelika on October 4, 2010

I love figs, no… I worship figs. I think they are one of the most wonderful, succulent and delicious foods that we have on this earth. I love that they can be paired with sweet or savory dishes and, in both,  the fig will shine. Nothing pleases me more than arriving at the market to see tables of […]


Stuffed Acorn Squash

by angelika on September 15, 2010

Today I was looking at the food in our house that was running out of time. We have been trying, as a family, to waste less and really pay attention to what we have and what is about to go bad. A very good thing, especially with a bag of produce costing what it does […]
