Chicken Pot Pie

From "Cook Your Meals the Lazy Way": This recipe relies almost entirely on commercial ingredients not least of which is the meat from a rotisserie chicken (or left over chicken meat from another dish), and yet the result is utterly delicious. You'll need a powdered biscuit mix (such as Bisquick) to make the topping. You can usually buy it in small amounts, packaged with just enough for 1 or 2 recipes, if you don't want a whole box-full.

Raspberry Tart

This is one of our favorite tarts - tart meaning not too sweet. And that is where the lavender honey comes in, in case you want it a little sweeter. Such a refreshing treat. Enjoy!

Stove-Top Popcorn!

You don't need a microwave oven to make good popcorn just fresh corn kernels, the right pan, oil and your stove. Popping kernels on the stove is more fun and exciting!

Roasted Beets

Roasted beets are delicious and easy to make. They go well with salads, meat, and alone as a quick snack. Just add a little olive oil, salt and a squeeze of lemon.

Olive Oil Poached Halibut with Roasted Beets and Blood Oranges

Poaching fish in olive oil gives it a luxe texture. Don't think the fish is going to be oily or greasy as a result because it's not. In fact, poaching --the gentlest form of cooking-- gives the fish a terrific, clean flavor. Halibut is fairly bland, so it needs the flavor intensity that the beets and blood oranges supply.
