Ca Phe Sua Nong (Vietnamese-Style Coffee) Recipe

A while ago a guest brought us some Fair Trade coffee beans and it's been sitting in our pantry ever since.  We're not big coffee drinkers. The only coffee I ever make at home is Vietnamese coffee, and I only make it when we have guests over. To make cà phê sữa nóng (literally Hot Milk Coffee in Vietnamese) you need a strong coffee, and the dark, extra bold French roast blend from Africa that our guest gave us was perfect for the job. My husband's friend Andrew came over today and he is addicted to Vietnamese coffee, so I made him several cups. Somehow the caffeine does not seem to stop him even late in the evening...

Making the coffee took me back in time. It reminds me of the coffee I used to make for my dad when I was a little girl growing up in Paris. He still lives there today. I would fall into a trance-like state watching the coffee drip, drop by drop into the tall glass of luscious condensed milk. Later on, we got an espresso machine but I was still making coffee for my papa every morning. I think about you, Papounet. I miss you dearly.

Gratin Dauphinois (Scalloped Potatoes) Recipe

Some of the tastiest things in life are made of few simple ingredients. Gratin dauphinois is one of those dishes. It consists of just potatoes, cream, cheese and butter, with a little salt and fresh cut herbs as garnish. Ok, it's not the healthiest meal in the world but that's why they invented treadmills.

When it comes out of the oven, hissing and bubbling, you and your guests are definitely in for a treat. Having a simple recipe like this gratin dauphinois in your culinary arsenal can help you out when you're pressed for time or when you have unexpected guests, which is often my case.

My hubby is feeling a little under the weather today. I wanted to give him some comfort food. Risotto is one of his favorite dishes; I make it very often when it's cold. It's very creamy, cozy and hearty. The basics of the risotto is always the same, typically you'll add 2 to 3 ingredients to the base to create your own signature risotto.

The first time we attempted to make soy nog, it came out way to thick so my husband suggested that we make ice cream out of it. Most ice cream after all are just frozen custard. To turn this into a frozen treat, we really upped all the flavors to counteract the effects that cold food has on our ability to taste. Enjoy!

Today is New Year's Eve and I thought I'd make something special for one of my sisters-in-law.  I wanted to do something festive and decadent for her this Holiday Season, but she is deathly allergic to eggs and nuts.  She has always wanted to try egg nog, so I thought how about egg nog, sans eggs and alcohol? It’s Egg-less because of her allergy, and alcohol free because she’s only nine.  So let’s get started on our egg-less custard with the eggnog flavoring.
