A super simple, fun appetizer or light lunch — I actually created this recipe using leftover ingredients in the fridge. But with a little time and a little love, I was able to create something that truly tastes gourmet. Bon Appétit!

I’ve always cheated with butternut squash, opting for the pre-chopped, steam-in-the-bag version from Trader Joe’s. But I thought I’d take a chance and work with the real deal. Turns out it’s not as difficult as I imagined. Here’s a really easy recipe for butternut squash puree — all you need are 3 ingredients and some patience. Bon Appétit!

It sounds fancy, but it doesn’t have to be. This chicken roulade recipe is so easy it could easily work as a mid-week meal. But serve it up with the right side dish and a glass of Chablis, and you’ve got something special for date night…Bon Appétit!
This is a side dish I’ve made so many times that I cannot honestly tell you how I thought of it or if it was inspired by another recipe. It’s my go-to side dish for my homestyle version of Duck a l’orange (which is why I put the “French” in front of fusion), but it also goes really well with glazed salmon, or as a vegetarian dish on its own.
It’s fun to play “fancy French food” in the kitchen every once in awhile. Unfortunately, I am not classically trained and some techniques and ingredients are just beyond my reach. But when you’re cookin’ up a duck breast, you can’t help but want to make it a l’orange, right? Enter, my cheats sauce…
