grilled flank steak with chimichurri sauce

I have a confession to make. I used to be very afraid of large chunks of meat.  No, not because I’m a vegetarian.  I like meat and I eat it often.  But I was afraid of large cuts of meat because I didn’t know how to prepare them.  Arkadi on the other hand has no such… Continue reading grilled flank steak with chimichurri sauce

Eggplant and Chicken Lasagna

Seafood Risotto with Wild Mushrooms

Last December, we needed a break badly and so we headed off to Muskoka to stay in a cottage – all by ourselves! It was real cold out there but it was also peaceful and quiet.  Everyday and every week we are constantly running around and rushing from one place to another.  Even though, we… Continue reading Seafood Risotto with Wild Mushrooms
