I’m back!  Sorry for the long hiatus in posting.  Life has just been beyond busy, and frankly, I’ve been suffering from a lack of inspiration so I’ve been cooking many meals which I’ve already blogged.  I’ve been focusing my creative juices in some other places, some worthwhile, some not so much.  Anyway, I sought out […]

Fall is fleeting, and winter is closing in on us.  One of my favorite things about this part of the year is most people consider it acceptable – even gratifying – to eat soup at least once a week.  National Soup Swap Day will be somewhere towards the end of January.  I’ll be hosting one […]

World.  I love the teeny, tiny, crispy french fries they serve as the side dish.  In fact, Houston’s is one of only two places I even eat french fries.  Steak […]

School is back in session.  Ahhh… The sound of quiet around the house is very welcome after a long summer.  We had a wonderfully fun summer, but it was a long.  Tiny pixie started yesterday, and I guess she missed school a bunch judging by her synopsis.  “It was just like a party, only better, […]

So the thing about Asian food, and I’m sure this is one of those foot-in-the-mouth remarks, is back when I had gestational diabetes, I couldn’t pass my blood sugar after a meal at an Asain restaurant to save my life.  Even when I thought I was making good choices.  Now – the same can probably […]

The fridge has been cleaned out and restocked, and I’m on my way back up the ladder after a dismal week of culinary mishaps.  It happens to everyone, I suppose, but for some reason I seem to take the hit harder than most.  I screwed up egg salad for the love of criminy.  That is […]

Our picnic fare for this week’s Deer Valley Free Concert featured fresh foods from the Farmers Market.  We had fresh broccolini, fresh zucchini, fresh radishes, Lemon Pepper Chevre and Garlic Chevre from Drake Family Farms, and fresh Asiago Cheese Bread from Volker’s Bakery.  After a super hike up Holly’s trail leading to mid-mountain of The […]
