  • There's a menu I reserve for when the cupboards are in need of replenishing. When the simplicity of basic ingredients sparks my imagination and energy enough to carry me through till bedtime, when toes are tucked and kisses on foreheads planted. It's called "Breakfast for Dinner By Candlelight". When I am too tired to know what to do, this is what I do. We gather round the table, our hearts warmed by fire and spice. It's nice to have a little magic you can always pull out of your pocket.
