Lawrence’s jalapeno blue cheese burgers

My husband learned to make hamburgers when he was in the boy scouts & he still uses that same basic recipe, switching it up with slightly more exotic ingredients than his boy scout days of 40 years ago. Lawrence’s jalapeno blue cheese burgers are the best, if not close to the best burgers I’ve eaten.…  [Read More]

ploughman’s lunch plate

On a trip to England in October last year for my birthday, I was so delighted by how wonderful the food was, especially at the country pubs I visited. Especially the abundant use of locally raised & grown food. It’s how I love to cook & eat. One dish I saw often on menus was…  [Read More]

I love avocado on toast for breakfast simply sprinkled with salt and pepper -perfectly uncomplicated. That to me…  [Read More]

beer onions, pastrami and cheese sandwich

I love a good sandwich, any time of the day. You can get totally creative or just simple – cucumber, tomato and onion is still one of my all-time favorite sandwiches. I love onions too. In or on almost anything. And beer. So a sandwich with onions cooked in beer, well I knew it was…  [Read More]
