Beef Cheeks Stew with Mushrooms Recipe

19th of September, 2012

Beef-Mushrooms-LevanaCooks

For the sake of these beef cheeks with mushrooms, I just spent hours picking some fellow bloggers’ brains, about how to rename beef cheeks. The name bothers me no end. When I say cheeks, I imagine something inviting, rosy and kissable. But to a cow? Beef Cheeks? It ain’t happening!...

Just finished reading Dearie: The Remarkable Life of Julia Child, written by author and biographer extraordinaire Bob Spitz. Let me start with my – very few – gripes, then we’ll move on to the good stuff. I did say Ouf! when I was done, not because I didn’t love it....

Flan-LevanaCooks

Flan is the Sunday treat of my childhood. My mother made the greatest flan and was my inspiration for this version. I tinkered with a dessert that would be a nutritionally … hmm not exactly lean, but much more affordable and no less delicious version of creme brulee or creme...

Chocolate Hazelnut (or Almond) Dacquoise Recipe

21st of June, 2012

Chocolate Hazelnut Dacquoise

Dacquoise is that wonderful French classic party cake, made up of layers of meringue and fillings. I have made the fillings much lighter (and much simpler to make), but no less delicious, with the help of my staunch ally tofu: No tofu flavors whatsoever remain, only the great chocolate and...

Salad Niçoise Recipe

In Honor of Julia Child JC100 Anniversary: Salade Niçoise Recipe Salade Niçoise is one of my all-time favorite salads, especially when made with fresh tuna. Frozen Fresh tuna Steaks will work beautifully too, at a fraction of the price and every bit as delicious. Will I sound like a dinosaur if...

Roast Beef with Wild Mushroom Sauce Recipe

20th of September, 2011

Roast-Beef-Mushroom-Sauce-LevanaCooks

Only for festive occasions, as it is more expensive than I like my dishes to be, but it will be the best roast you will ever have, and the sauce is to die for. I find that starting the roast at such high temperature sears it right in the baking...
