Comment est votre Blanquette?

Way back in 2018 when dinner parties would happen on a whim and some of our friends hadn’t moved back to France yet Andrew and I were treated to a traditional French favorite, Blanquette de Veau. This dish is pure comfort food, many recipes have been passed down and perfected by French grandmothers for generations. […]

Apple Season

It is the season for all things apples! I love picking my own fruits in the summer and with many apple orchards in Maine I am able to continue my love of PYO well into the fall season. Over the years, I have discovered heirloom apples like Ruby Topaz, Snow Sweet, Florina, and Golden Russet. […]

I was in Florida this past Sunday visiting friends for my winter break (being a teacher has it’s perks) and the Sunday before we actually went over to Andrew’s mum’s house for dinner. For Christmas this year she gifted us home cooked meals with a […]

Cheesy Chicken Enchiladas

January is over and we’ve been doing pretty great sticking with our Sunday Supper plan. With alternating our Sunday meal planning I was lucky enough to have one of mine fall on Super Bowl Sunday, yay! (This is full of sarcasm in case you couldn’t tell.) Super Bowl kind of comes with its own predetermined […]
