Ebelskivers

Ebelskivers

For anyone not familiar with these little round pancakes, Ebelskivers hail from Denmark. The fluffy, light balls of pancake dough ooze with fillings ranging from savoury to sweet and are the breakfast of choice when the grandgirls sleep over. In a bid to have at least...

Lemon Squares

Lemon Squares

If you love lemon meringue pie and lemon curd, you'll adore lemon squares. They're a cinch to make, but don't neglect to take the few extra minutes to thicken the filling on the stovetop before layering it over the partially baked shortbread. You won't regret it!...

Lamb Ragu and Mint with Papardelle

Lamb Ragu and Mint with Papardelle

Lamb shanks are the intended cut of meat for this dish, but I had purchased a partial leg of lamb from Whole Foods for New Year's Eve dinner. Either the lamb in question had been training for a marathon prior to its demise, or it was actually mutton. Talk about tough!...

Entertablement Abroad – England in the Autumn

Entertablement Abroad – England in the Autumn

The long-awaited, oft-rescheduled trip to England was a heady mix of emotions: apprehension as to how difficult it might be to navigate changing requirements, elation at the freedom of travelling again, disappointment and frustration with the National Trust, amusement...

Entertablement Abroad – Ely Cathedral

Entertablement Abroad – Ely Cathedral

As cathedrals go, Ely Cathedral is one of the biggies. Literally, at 537 ft long, but also because of its story, which began in 672.  A lot has happened in the intervening 13+ centuries. Not just the usual political squabbling and overly ambitious clerics, but...

Entertablement Abroad – Sudeley Castle

Entertablement Abroad – Sudeley Castle

Most of the grand manor houses we see in England have a history involving a lot of ups and downs. Sudeley Castle is the veritable Snakes & Ladders of the genre. The tale began innocuously enough with a commonplace event: William le Boteler of Wem married heiress...

Entertablement Abroad – St. Malo, Brittany

Entertablement Abroad – St. Malo, Brittany

St. Malo, a town in Brittany on the northwestern coast of France, has some of the biggest tides in Europe. They can vary more than 40 feet from low tide to open sea, as you can see from views of the national fort, which becomes isolated at high tide. St. Malo is just...

Entertablement Abroad: Herculaneum

Entertablement Abroad: Herculaneum

Visting Herculaneum was one of the highlights of our recent cruise to Croatia, Montenegro, and Italy. Remember when people went on cruises and emerged unscathed, having actually enjoyed themselves? Neither do I, except I know it happened. As recently as October....
