January 27, 2007

I’m starting to wonder if I should change the tag line of this website to Erin Cooks:  An Ellie Krieger Retrospective.   What do you think?  Anyway, here’s another yummy option to wow your friends with:   Fettuccini with Creamy Red Pepper-Feta Sauce.  I couldn’t find whole wheat fettuccini so I used linguine.  My one quibble with […]

Wine-Braised Chicken

January 5, 2007

Ever since I was a little girl I’ve always loved pouring over cookbooks, marveling at the gorgeous pictures, and wondering how each one would taste.

Dave Lieberman’s Thai Chicken Curry

January 4, 2007

Dave Lieberman’s Thai Chicken Curry is absolutely delicious.  I’m now officially in love with coconut milk and I can’t wait to use it in something else.  Chris and I devoured the entire dish, which was intended to be four servings, but since this was done slightly pre New Year’s Resolutions time I’m not inclined to […]

November 12, 2006

Curry and I are becoming quite the “BFF’s.”  I suppose it was inevitable, what with my new found love for all things spicy.   This Chicken Curry Pot Pie came out of the oven warm, hearty, and creamy.  The veggies stayed crisp and the puff pastry melts in your mouth.  Oh boy do I love pastry […]

Rachael Ray’s Fruited Chicken Curry

October 28, 2006

I was actually nervous about making Fruited Chicken Curry even though it is a Rachael Ray recipe and that practically assures you of a foolproof meal. I suppose you can chalk it up to old kitchen fears rearing their ugly head, stemming perhaps from the days when I used to refuse to cook with meat […]

Dave Lieberman’s Buttery Baby Pea Soup

October 22, 2006

This Pea Soup is the easiest meal I’ve ever made. After a long day of errand running I was less than thrilled about the prospect of making dinner…OK…that’s a lie. I always like to cook, but I bet you’ve had plenty of moments when you have absolutely zero desire to do anything more than eat […]
