Smoked Salmon Hash

Hello and Happy New Year! It was a beautiful morning when I woke up today.  The sun shone bright and not a cloud could be found in the sky, but the air was cold and crisp.  Last night we spent at home watching the ball drop at New York’s Times Square.  Sounded boring, huh?  We’re […]

Parker House Rolls

Have to try this rolls whenever I see the recipe for Parker House rolls.  I’m imagining soft and fluffy rolls, warm and buttery.  And I’m not disappointed with this recipe.  It’s a bit time-consuming forming this small pillows but of course, any shape will do.  The addition of sea salt at the end is necessary […]

The day […]

Strawberry-Banana Crepe Cake

Christmas Stollen

The darkness of winter is closing in and with that, the Christmas of 2011 is almost over.  Last night we had dinner with a family friend; their kids played with mine, the adults talked in front of the fireplace.  It’s the most peaceful moment during the week leading to Christmas.  The food was superb, the […]
