In which the world of culinary hedonism is explored with a cup and a half of curiosity, a heaping tablespoon of passion and a dash of clumsiness.

Watch for the return of the Accidental Chef mid-January!

Last night, I settled down to a home-cooked family dinner that was as timeless and hearty as it was delicious.  A rustic beef stew paired beautifully with crumbly, sweet corn bread and baked cinnamon apples.   A Californian pinot noir highlighted the earthy tones of the stew and rejuvenated my pallet for each savory bite.

Naturally, my love of food led to thoughts about my blog.

These past few weeks, my life has been filled with end-of-semester craziness, final projects, Christmas preparations, family time and getting ready for a trip.  Needless to say, I've been one busy girl.

That doesn't mean I haven't made the time to do some pretty darn good cooking...

...I just haven't had time to blog about it!

But never fear - the Accidental Chef shall return to you mid-January once the dust has settled a bit with new dishes as well as some catch-up posts on those that have been sitting in a file of photos marked "To blog about"!

In January, you can read all about:
  • Another Amanda and Meg wine feature starring a phenomenal Riesling
  • A quick and healthy take on tortellini
  • A delectable cranberry torte that I learned how to make from my mother this holiday season - and it's easy!!!
  • Recipe inspirations I'm hoping to pick up from my trip abroad!
So in the mean time, my foodie friends, settle in for long winter naps, cook up some rustic meals of your own, and tune back in after a couple of weeks to read about what's new!

Wishing you a prosperous, happy, healthy New Year full of warm memories, and of course, fantastic food and wine!
