Chevre & Blue Cheese Biscuits

Chevre & Blue Cheese Biscuits

I should first start off by mentioning that these are more American style biscuits, than their English cousins. Which means that instead of being a type of cookie, they are a doughy type of bread. These chevre & blue cheese biscuits are in a way […]

Avocado Egg Salad Sandwich

Avocado Egg Salad Sandwich

So this recipe was kind of an accident. I was originally going to make Vol-Au-Vents because last week I made these vol-au-vents with whitefish poached in a shiitake mushroom cream sauce and I fell in love with that cooking style. This time I was going […]

Basic Dacquoise

I’ve decided to make a separate post for this dacquoise recipe, solely because it is long and I don’t need all the pictures crowding other recipes that make use of this cake layer. I originally made this dacquoise cake as the base cake for my […]
