CCC – March Recipes (lentils, potatoes and another “spouffle”)

This month with the Cottage Cooking Club offered up some great recipes, none of the dishes I chose were completely new to me, but it still made for a great array of recipes. As I’ve mentioned many times on this blog, I have grown to love the French green lentils (Puy). They are pretty, retain their… Continue reading CCC – March Recipes (lentils, potatoes and another “spouffle”)

CCC -a ragout, a toastie, and a gratin

This month’s Cottage Cooking Club selections included quite a few yummy-sounding dishes. I have to say, I’m a bit proud of myself, since I committed to two, but made three. And I’m so happy I did! Just as I am getting settled in to my house in Sedona, it’s the time of year when work starts ramping… Continue reading CCC -a ragout, a toastie, and a gratin

CCC – January re-set

The latter part of December was surprisingly stressful, so while 2015 was ok, I was ready for a new year. That also meant that I would be trying to re-set and get back to my blog, as well as cooking along with my friends in the Cottage Cooking Club. We have been cooking through Hugh… Continue reading CCC – January re-set

CCC – September – a month of make-ups and re-visits!

This month for the Cottage Cooking Club, we had another “make-up” or even “revisit” month. I ended up doing a little of both. To start, I was so inspired by my fellow club members who raved about last month’s Summer garden lentils niçoise, that I decided I just had to make it. Well, I did. And it… Continue reading CCC – September – a month of make-ups and re-visits!

CCC – Thai Tomatoes in August

This month for the Cottage Cooking Club I made Tomatoes with Thai Dressing – I love Thai flavors, and I also love tomatoes – and fortunately had plenty from the garden. Like many of the “raw assembly” recipes, this was simple to put together – designed to highlight the flavor of the tomatoes, while adding… Continue reading CCC – Thai Tomatoes in August

CCC – The May Recipes: Salad and Spouffle

This has been a month of reflection for another group I cook with, and Zosia’s idea of April/May being “transitional” is one that resonates – on many different levels. Certainly, the seasons are changing (or are supposed to be!), but graduations, beginnings, and endings are all happening around us. This marks the first month of… Continue reading CCC – The May Recipes: Salad and Spouffle

CCC – the April Recipes

As you can see, this is being posted in May. Really? I couldn’t take the time to post on time? With only two recipes completed? Well, things do happen. The last couple of months have been super busy. Mainly with work, but also with family events, so I had to take a delay! Oh well!! In… Continue reading CCC – the April Recipes
