Stewing Over It

Is it just us, or is fall the best thing that ever happened to the planet? The trees look so beautiful, pumpkin lattes hit the streets, fashion is at its best and cooking sounds much less like a chore and much more like the most comforting, fun activity to ever have been invented. I'm a sucker for any recipe featuring pumpkins, sweet potatoes, butternut squash and savory meats like roast and pork chops. In fact, my daughters swear because of that, fall is the second time of the year I put on my bi-annual extra 15 pounds (the first being when Sheri's Restaurant features their yummy strawberry pies!). But in all my revelry for fall, I've never tried tackling one of the most basic, popular French comfort foods: boeuf bourguignon. I'm really excited to give the classic dish a whirl this year, but I'm inexplicably a bit intimidated. Have any of you ever successfully given it a try? I'd love to hear some words of boeuf bourguignon wisdom and get some gentle encouragement before traversing the yummy waters! Or you can just help me channel Julia Child. That will work, too.

  1. Thank you for visiting us at Red Rose Alley and following. Your blog is so lovely. The torquoise HEADER caught my eye, as torquoise is a favorite color of mine. My girls traveled to Paris a couple of years ago, and loved everything about it. I will be back to visit with you often, and I hope you have a lovely weekend.
