January/early February 2015

January was a fun month of cooking. Page back through the posts on my LJ  for a look. I finally caved and made the famous Italian dessert, tiramisu. I started with a limoncello version which I loved so much that I had to try the classic chocolate/coffee version too. I had a craving for one of my childhood favourites … chicken livers and spinach though I also made more ‘modern’ versions of each of the two. And then there was the pot roast, a big batch of refried beans and a healthy pot of kale and tofu soup. I treated myself to dim sum at a local Chinese restaurant at the end of January and in early February, I went out for a birthday dinner of sushi. Unfortunately, I forgot my camera at home so no pictures of that outing. :)

End of Year Update

More fun posts since my November update.

Heavy dishes like Romanian style polenta and sausage gravy, lighter dishes like seafood scampi and bang bang shrimp.

And of course, goodies for Christmas like white chocolate cranberry toffee, gingerbread men and mini cheesecakes. And dinner rolls to go with the lamb chops on the actual day.

Elegant Italian desserts like Zabaglione and a hearty breakfast for dinner.

All found on my LJ.
