you can eat it too….

They say that you can’t have your cake and eat it too, but I disagree!!!!!!!!!!!  If you pay that much money for a wedding cake, then by all means eat it!!!  We are in full wedding season, which means crazy mother of the brides, bridezillas, wedding planners from hell and trying to figure out the…

When Good Pork Goes Bad…

I was grocery shopping the other morning after dropping my husband off at work and then going to the gym, it was about 6:00 a.m. Best time to shop, no one is there. Well, almost no one, there are the cashiers.  At this particular 24 hour store, not the one you are probably thinking of,…

Pumpkin Spice the new Ranch….

One of my first posts was about my animosity for ranch dressing.  But now Pumpkin Spice has been creeping up on that list.  It is everywhere and every company has been jumping on the band wagon.  Why, I ask you?  Pumpkin has been around forever and actually if  I try to go back into memory…

Slow Cooker Saga

  I love talking to my sister Monday through Wednesday nights, don’t get me wrong I love talking to her every night but these are special because they are slow cooker nights.  Slow cookers terrify me. I really don’t know why…. well yes I do.   Take this recipe three ingredient Swedish Meatballs  1) frozen…

why?

    Why do I cook?  I’m not a masochist or maybe I am.  I don’t enjoy wearing long pants and long sleeved jackets in hot, humid, tight places where there is lots of fire.  I don’t like working every weekend and most holidays!!!  I don’t enjoy early mornings and 12 hour work days.  So,…

It’s a Marshmallow world that we live in…

These little soft, sugary, colorful bites of deliciousness make it to our shelves at this time every year. They were introduced in 1953 by a Russian immigrant named Sam Born.  The yellow peeps were the original, twenty long years later the bunnies were introduced in the original colors of white, pink and yellow.  Fast forward…

I Glutened myself…

  You see them everywhere…. yoga pants and running shoes but that’s not what I am ranting about today.  Today I am ranting about being Gluten Free.  Today I glutened myself. You may be thinking that this is funny or not a big deal.  Well, let me tell you it isn’t and it is. While…

A Woman’s place is Where?

They use to say a woman’s place was in the kitchen. What was meant by this was your home kitchen, not a professional one. We were ok to be at home making dinner for our families and our husbands boss and co-workers but not to do it in restaurants and certainly not to make a…

Talking Turkey

So, Halloween has come and gone and apparently we are completely skipping Thanksgiving and going straight to Christmas. Wait, slow down there is an entire food holiday in between.  Now, I know that there is more to Thanksgiving than food but this is a food blog not a history blog. So, lets talk turkey, stuffing,…

FOOD is not a four letter word….

“The Mind of a Chef”, “The Chef and the Farmer”, “Tasting Table” all these cooking shows, well let me call them call them food shows, are out there respecting food, informing and re teaching people about food.  When did we turn FOOD into a dirty four letter word?  When did we become so afraid of…

Please, don’t cry

Don’t worry my friends I am not gone just working a TON!!!!!  I have 2 posts in the work but just haven’t had the time to finish.  But I promise to be back real soon!  Don’t leave me just yet!!!!

Saute’…. It’s not brain surgery

To Saute’ (french “jumped, bounced”in reference to tossing while cooking) is the method of cooking food, that uses a small amount of oil or fat in a shallow pan over relatively high heat. Notice the words in bold print!  Let me repeat if your can’t find them… small amount of oil or fat.  This is important,…
