Myself & Epicureanism

I want to briefly clarify the reasoning behind my title and what this “Epicurean,” word really means.  And it’s going to be a talk on religion, so tread lightly.   Let’s begin with myself.  I don’t want to get into a rolling discussion about religion, but personally I believe religion as a whole has simply … Continue reading

Veg in Bins

I just wanted to share with you, some photos of veggies in blue bins, as well as some cheese.  We visited a farm in Genneper Park, this past weekend and they sell the veggies that they grow and the meat and cheese they produce on-site.  Happy Monday, everyone!  Have a great week! -Cassie

Paris Streets

Alright, this will be the last post about Paris.  You won’t have to think about it for a long time, unless you want to. This post has a simple theme.  I think you’ve already gotten that from the title.  These are views of Paris streets and a quick look at the places we’ve been around … Continue reading

Food(AKA…Life) in Paris

Food in Paris is important.  And, it is excellent.  And, obese people are few and far between.  And all of those svelte people start drinking wine at noon.  Why does this matter?  Well, it’s interesting and delicious and maybe its smart.  Our October “holiday” was last week and we ate and ate and ate.  And … Continue reading

The Louvre

This will be a post of primarily photos. My family and I went to Paris last week to visit a close friend.  This time, saw as many things as possible.  One place I’ve been dying to take my daughters and husband to was the Louvre.

So, here are some photos – some legitimate photos.  Not just some iPhone snaps to make people jealous of my dinner.   But, to be fair, I don’t know what white balance this should … Continue reading

(Green)Gelderland in the Netherlands

Just a couple of months ago, our friends invited us up to Gelderland.  If you have only heard of Gelderland in A Knights Tale and thought that it was a made-up place, well you’re not alone.  Oh, and it’s a real place.  When I told them about this movie and my obvious global ignorance, they … Continue reading

Cookies: Brutti ma Buoni Meringhe con Cioccolato (Ugly, But Good Meringues with Chocolate)

My mother-in-law, Alberta, makes a TON of Brutti ma Buoni, every year for Christmas.  Hers is a completely different recipe; one with whole eggs and a flour made from various nuts that she picks up from the butcher, only during the holiday season.  They are delicious with a cup of coffee to dip them into, … Continue reading

Ragu (As interpreted by the clever American wife of a Roman)

I cook.  A lot.  Every day.  From scratch and never from a box or the freezer.  Martha Stewart is my homey(…not really). Food is important in my house.  And by no fault of my own, I married a really picky Roman man.  Yes, he’s really from Rome… which is in Italy.. and he speaks Italian.. … Continue reading
