Excerpt II

Scene: Morgan and Seth host a dinner party that takes an unexpected turn!

Seth whistled as Morgan walked into the kitchen wearing the black cocktail dress he’d bought her on the way back from Pittsburgh.  She wore her hair down, the soft curls cascaded over her shoulders.

“You like?”  Morgan twirled around.

“I have good taste,”  Seth pulled her into his arms and kissed her.  “How’s the champ?”

“Out like a light.  He should sleep through the night.  How’s my rack of lamb coming along?” Continue reading

Fall Food Rituals

I love the fall.  The cool weather is welcome after the grueling, humid summers on the east coast.  To usher in the new season and changing foliage, I like to try a new dish.  This tradition started a few years ago when my aunt asked me to make the broccoli-cheddar soup recipe she’d seen in a food magazine.  I saw this as a culinary challenge and I accepted it!  Cooking, much like writing, is about exploring the realms of creative possibilities. 

I enjoy cooking with fresh vegetables and herbs.  Celery, carrots and onions are a holy trinity for most soup recipes and there is no smell that compares to the blending of fresh vegetables and herbs in a stock pot. 

For the past three years, I have been making homemade soups like chicken noodle, split pea and broccoli-cheddar.  September is here, so I will begin my hunt for a new soup.  I create my own recipes or try a recipe of a chef I like.  Sometimes I borrow from a few recipes and add a little something of my own.

Recently, I’ve attempted to make an apple pie.  It’s pretty good for my first try at homemade pie, but it’s still a work in progress.  Lol. 

What’s your fall food ritual? 

What foods are appealing to you in autumn?
