Halibut Salad

I grew up eating Halibut Salad. It was on our Thursday rotation of fish meals. Halibut is a firm white fleshed fish that has a very mild flavor. It’s actually whiter than other white fleshed fish like snapper or flounder. I think that’s what makes it so pretty as a […]

Chestnut Soup with Beer

I love Chestnut Soup with Beer. I’ve had the experience of peeling fresh chestnuts and frankly, I didn’t enjoy it. Buying bottled or packaged chestnuts makes them much more user friendly. You can make this Chestnut Soup with Beer velvety smooth or leave it slightly chunky with bits of chestnut […]

Easy Pumpkin Pie- Freezer Friendly

When I grew up, we ate lots of food from cans. Maybe that’s why I’ve always had a thing about not using canned puréed pumpkin to make pie.
