Blasted tech support.  I spent the whole day yesterday trying to get this post onto my site.  Someone asked me for a chicken tetrazzini recipe.  I can’t remember who it was, SMIL perhaps?  Someone else?  I haven’t made this in ages, so it took me awhile to track it down.  I don’t think I’ve attempted […]

I like to fancy myself a housewife version of the Iron Chef, where Kitchen Stadium more closely resembles an obstacle course with the biggest risks involving slipping on a stray lego thus losing valuable preparation minutes or accidentally losing a finger due to an imposing plastic tarantula’s presence scaring the life right out of you.  […]

Awhile back my dear friend Emily sent me an email saying, “Do you have any recipes that call for a massive amount of turkey broth?  I am not kidding, I have a TON.”  Which was hilarious and awesome.  Anyway, she brought me 2 frozen quarts to our eggnog taste off.  (Yes the taste off was super fun.  […]

This is pasta with spirit.  It’s essentially a melding and blending of flavors that grab your tongue and say, “Open up!  This is what it feels like to really live.”  Olives seem to be a love them or hate them kind of food.  I am constantly surrounded by people (including my sweet sisters and a […]

It’s hard to write about something when it didn’t turn out quite perfectly.  It’s hard not to get caught up in the what should have beens and the what could have beens and what ifs.  But first and foremost, I started this blog as a diary for my personal cooking adventures.  So when I came […]

This post will wrap up the party food and I’ll be back to our regularly featured programming.  I have an exciting plan to recreate an appetizer I had at The Porch Restaurant tomorrow, so tune back in for that. The end of the party preparation had me totally feeling like the Iron Chef.  There was […]
