  • Sherry Trifle. COOKING WITH SIMON: Favorite dessert for moms

    Last week I loved seeing many great tributes to moms and wonderful ways to honor Mother’s Day.
    I lost my mother and a very special aunt last year so the day, for me, was rather poignant.
    Fortunately, I had the opportunity to cater the Harvey Woman’s Club Mother’s Day luncheon. This group of ladies have embraced me since coming to town 10 years ago, and many of them have been like adopted moms.

    Mother's Day is almost here and it’s time to give the ladies in your life a day off from the kitchen duties.
    Today’s recipe is a simple and easy to make chicken dish, and just might get the men into kitchen. They can lead the way as the kids pitch in to help, as well!

  • Haute goat cheese COOKING WITH SIMON: Haute goat cheese pairs perfectly with wine

    So which came first, the wine or the cheese? Actually it doesn’t matter because it’s the perfect pairing.
    And I’m not going to get into white versus red and which cheese to eat with what wine. Just enjoy wine with cheese.

    The vegetables in the raised garden beds are showing signs of life. They’re slowly pushing up towards the sunshine and barring another frost or bug attacks we should have some great vegetables and herbs for the restaurant this year.

    One of the great things about spring is the beginning of fresh salads, but not just the leafy kind, instead the ones filled with varieties of beans and peas.

  • Mayonnaise COOKING WITH SIMON: Which came first? The yolk or the white

    If you do a lot of baking or dessert making, like I do, you might have a large amount of egg yolks on your hands. There are many recipes, like my New Zealand Pavlova, that call for the egg whites, but not the yolks.
