Caramelized Onion, Cheddar, Gruyère and Truffle Phyllo Tarts

Maple Roasted Carrot Salad on Mixed Greens

Matrimonial (Oatmeal-Date) Bars

There are a lot of Fall flavors that come together in tonight's dinner menu and the "marriage" of flavors that I am sharing with you is in the dessert and the name says it all.

I don't know the back story of why these are called Matrimonial Bars, but I do know that the combination of lightly spiced oats and dried dates are a match made in culinary heaven.  If you have never had dried dates before, please give them a try! Biting into one (make sure they have been pitted!) is like biting into a piece of candy; naturally sweet and delicious.  

You'll note that my serving suggestion is 9-16 bars/squares.  Why you ask?  Well, when cut into 16 squares, they are a nice little hand held treat. When cut into 9 squares, they are just the right size for a small dessert plate, a fork and a scoop of vanilla ice cream😉😋.  Happy Sunday!

Cream of Mushroom Soup
Cheddar, Gruyère and Black Pepper Gougères

Hello and Happy Fall! Sorry I missed the last of the summer.  I had the recipes to share, but I just didn't have make the time.  There is a silver lining, though.  It means I will have more recipes to share next year😊. 

If you are a long time reader, you'll know that tomorrow marks a special day for me.  I won't say what, I'll just say that it involves a passing of another year and cake🎂.  So that means this Sunday is the menu of my choosing.  Well, most Sunday dinner menus are of my choosing anyways😉. 

Normally, I like to start my Sunday dinners with an appetizer or amuse bouche, but tonight I thought I would change things up a bit and serve a first course.  With the current chilly temperatures, a warm and flavorful bowl of soup is the perfect way to start the meal.

There are several lovely things about this recipe. First of all, it is not from a can! Second, it is very easy and comes together rather quickly. Third, by using light cream or even evaporated milk, it is easy on the waist line. And last, but most important, it is absolutely delicious! The recipe is rather straight forward.  My only embellishment is to add a splash of Sherry vinegar at the end to brighten the overall flavor profile.  I find that adding dry Sherry or Maidera over powers the mushroom flavor and this soup is all about the mushrooms!

Tonight, I am serving as a first course with a little nibble on the side and if I am serving it as a meal on it's own, I like have a warm baguette and a nice wedge of Brie cheese near by.  However, any way your serve it, it will be well received.  Happy Sunday!
