Creamy Spanish Flan

When I was a kid the dessert menu often included a Flan somewhere along the list. This Creamy Spanish Flan is a take on that tradition, but modified for those who may prefer a creamier approach. The baked egg custard is a simple recipe with an impressive finish. Best of all, its smooth richness captures the essence of the dish I have tasted so many times before. Enjoy!!

Marinara Sauce, Made Simple


When you notice fruit in its later ripened stage, do you accept its fate or use it as an excuse to create? If you choose the latter, you may end up with some pretty nifty desserts, dishes and sides, even though it may seem an unlikely outcome. Fruit jams or banana bread are only some examples, but  Marinara Sauce can be as well. This tasty tomato sauce can be made in advance and used across upcoming individual meals or doubled, tripled, and quadrupled for a pasta night or two. It may not mirror a traditional Italian kitchen, but it is a simple enough recipe to personalize. Enjoy!

Basic Barbecue Sauce


A Basic Barbecue Sauce is a lot easier than people think. With more control over the ingredients going in, the easier it is to make adjustments later. Want it smoky? Add smoked chili pepper. Want it sweet? Add honey. It's a flexible combination that you can truly make the way you want. How did I use it? I prepped a BBQ Chicken Lasagna, personal-sized, with this sauce, fresh veggies, and chopped tomatoes, baked into a sweet and spicy mouthful.

Chocolate Chip Cookies, Gluten-Free


Using unfamiliar ingredients to make familiar things is a fascinating aspect of cooking. If it all tastes the same or similar in the end, it can be a great skill to develop (and learn from friends with various dietary restrictions). Several of my gluten-free consuming friends have contacted me about making more gluten-free treats for eatTALK. It's a bit of an unknown area for me, but I am up for the challenge! As one friend reminisced of a Chocolate Chip Cookie, Gluten-Free by way of the chickpea, I was inspired to give it a try. I will continue to develop more, but I hope this one is enjoyable!
