Learn how to enjoy food, cooking & entertaining. It’s not about fancy or complicated. It’s about good food. Real food. Everything in moderation. Most of the recipes are original along with the best recipes I have found from various sources.

There is nothing like a fresh brewed cup of quality coffee. There is nothing like a smooth glass of red wine. And yes…… you can eat potatoes. Potatoes are real food.

“Meals will never be good quality if the ingredients are not good quality.” 

Spring! Peas, asparagus, fennel, radishes and avocado. The smell of grilled steaks in the fresh air. The first sign of plums and nectarines. Fresh, light pasta and fish dinners.  I hope you enjoy the fresh recipes below.
