But you must also have heart for cooking. Imagination is required, and, (Julia Child had it right and said it best), “the courage of your convictions.”

This Oven-Roasted Garlicky Dungeness Crab recipe is down-to-earth easy yet sophisticated and incredibly finger-licking delicious. This recipe is a take from chef Cat Cora’s “Buon Natale” crab recipe, featured on the Food Network, The Best Thing I Ever Ate show, “The Best Thing I Ever Made for the Holidays” episode.

Of crabs; it is recommended that the best time of the year to buy fresh crabs is in the months with the letter “R”.... Read More

Believe it or not, garlic is not only used in savory dishes but in sweet recipes as well, such as ice cream and cakes and candies. Garlic is very versatile, and so much fun experimenting with, if you like garlic.

“I dream of garlic day and night,

I drool for garlic near to die,

Would I to find a living, breathing Garlic Rose,

In a heartbeat I’d up and marry,

Nay not for money but for love of the Stinky Rose!”

A poem by V. Kahler-Anderson

And putting together a soufflé is like building a puzzle; the result is like a five-string ensemble on your palette, of tastes and textures.

This altered recipe is adapted from Judith Jones’ “Cheese Soufflé” recipe, from her book “The Pleasures of Cooking for One,”—here done for two—and borrowed techniques from Julia Child’s book, “Mastering the Art of French Cooking,” from her recipe variations on “Soufflé de Poisson.”

Cook with heart; eat with gusto. Buen Provecho!


1 tablespoon softened butter

1/3 cup finely grated Jarlsberg cheese

Seeing the finished result, a perfectly risen soufflé when taken right out of the oven will give you a sense of great accomplishment. But eating it, well, you’ll feel beside yourself with enchantment enjoying this food of the gods.

This recipe is a take from Julia Child’s basic instructions on “Au Chocolat Soufflé.” She was, after all, first teacher to many great cooks today.

Come; take a comfortable seat at our cozy table. Dinner is served!

This recipe makes 6-to-8 servings

Heavily butter the entire inside of an 8-cup *soufflé mold, and generously... Read More

Recreating this recipe, of eggs, cheese, milk, flour and butter, with actual hands on and following the easy step-by-step recipe, made me realize all the hard work, endless hours and love that Julia poured into everything she did. Julia was not only an “icon” but she also became my “Muse” in the kitchen.

I conquered my fears of making soufflés, and so can you!

This recipe is taken from Julia Child’s first cookbook, “Mastering the Art of French Cooking,” written with Louisette Bertholle and Simone Beck.

Note: Slight variations have been made for the sake of personal taste,... Read More

Rice was one of the first things I learned to cook, hanging around in the kitchen and watching my mother. And as a matter of fact, my daughters, too, have mastered making our Salvadorian fried rice. First thing is to find a favorite pot just for making your rice, finding one that makes perfect rice every time. And my mother has this wonderful old heavy pot that she has used exclusively for years, for making her rice. She still has it—almost 45 years old now—and her three daughters all covet this pot. There is something about my mother’s rice that none of us girls can duplicate; it’s just different... Read More

This is not just about eating, you see, this has everything to do with cooking, and cooking from the heart. It is about all the love that goes into each recipe I create; it is about the results and achieving ultimate flavors. The finished dish should satisfy not only my taste buds but lift my sprits to soar. It should ignite my entire being and make me feel alive. And this dish most certainly does.

This improvised pasta dish is simplicity at its best!

Cooking, and eating, is my passion. It is who I am.

Give this recipe a try, and then you be the judge.

Come and take... Read More
