Bacon & Eggs on Udon Noodles

A few weeks ago I was talking about working with a very limited pantry and sparsely equipped kitchen while housesitting for a friend.  Even so, I still managed to piece together a delicious and fragrant Honey Garlic Lemon Chicken dish.

Tomato, Sausage and Goat Cheese Tart

If you follow this blog with any kind of regularity, then you know that I have a love/hate relationship with pastry. Love eating it. Hate making it. I’m a decent baker but pie crust eludes me completely.  So, I buy it.  The two shell yellow box from Tenderflake.  It’s fast, easy and has never failed […]
