chanterelle pasta

Fresh Chanterelle Pasta with Lemon-Cream Brown Butter

This recipe comes from the folks at Wooldridge Creek Winery in the Applegate Valley of Oregon. It certainly qualifies under the ‘Taste’ and ‘Time’ criteria. As for nutrition, this looks ‘richer’ than it is – a little goes a long way. Using whole wheat pasta deals stays away from refined flour and I sometimes substitute […]

Quinoa cooked sushi rolls a la Muriel

I really enjoyed the Japanese breakfasts, especially making the rolls of seaweed, salmon, pickled items and rice.  I’ve made these at home since returning with ingredients that I had locally in Nashville. Since I like a high protein breakfast, I’ve also tried substituting the rice with the higher protein grain, quinoa. You can be creative, […]

Finnish Pinwheel Christmas Tarts

Pinwheel tarts have been a favorite Finnish holiday tradition in my home ever since I remember.  They take some time to put together, and I remember helping my mother fold the pinwheel shapes when I was a very little girl, as my niece and nephew now do.  They are surprisingly delicious. The recipe supplied by my great aunt, ­Saima […]
