Homemade Chicken Noodle Soup

Pilau became standard fare in the Middle East over the years with variations and innovation by the Arabs, Turks and Armenians.

Mashed Potatoes

Posted on 22 January 2014

In my opinion the best mashed potatoes are made with “floury” types of potato (like russet), although “waxy” potatoes are sometimes used for a different texture. Butter, olive oil, milk or cream is usually added to improve flavor and texture, and the potatoes are seasoned with salt and pepper, and any other desired herbs and […]

When winter season swirls in, nothing could be cozier than a toasty mug of mulled wine. It’s the vine’s version of a classic hot toddy, and is a traditional holiday treat all over the World even in places like South Florida. I always think of our skiing outings when I have “Vin Chaud”. Mulled wines […]

Caife Gaelach (in Irish) is a cocktail consisting of hot coffee, Irish whiskey, and sugar, stirred, and topped with thick cream. The coffee is drunk through the cream. The original recipe explicitly uses cream that has not been whipped, although whipped cream is often used because it’s easier to get it floating on top! Irish […]
