Here is what my mornings tend to look like: Stumble out of bed after snoozing for way too long. Put my contacts in, and jump in the shower. Get dressed and downstairs with just enough time to make a cup of coffee and head out for work. If I am lucky, I can grab something […]

Leading up to Thanksgiving last month, the challenge for the week was ‘rustic’. This is what my cooking is all about!! Typically my food doesn’t look perfect, and is made with hearty, good ingredients. I love rustic food. Rustic food loves me. And Mike doesn’t mind me making it all the time. Win. So for […]

Week 45 of the cooking challenge was whole grains. I wanted to try something I hadn’t before… Scratch making whole wheat bread. I scoured the interweb for recipes on this one and found a super easy and DELICIOUS recipe. It really could not have been easier, and I was thrilled with the results. I will […]

You know Homer from the Simpsons? You know how he liked to drool at delicious things? That’s what this bacon did to Mike and I. It was so fantastic. Chewy, crispy, salty, sweet, spicy goodness. Oh my lawwwwwd. Amazing. And this was also week 43 of the cooking challenge, which was themed “candied.” You could […]

However, the history is deviled eggs is actually much older than that. The eggs are dated back to ancient Rome! According to¬†eating eggs […]

Years ago I was introduced to an appetizer that has become pretty much my favorite thing in the universe. There are 3 main ingredients; puff pastry, onions and feta. Do you see where I am going with this??? Ugh. The combination of caramelized onions, tangy feta cheese and flaky puff pastry. I just can’t even […]

Week 11 of the 52 Weeks of Cooking challenge was probably my favorite so far. The theme was molecular. The idea being to use modern gastronomy to create a dish. Obviously, as a home cook I also needed to keep it cheap and simple. So after hours (literally) of research on different molecular techniques, I […]

This morning, I was checking my email. I was reading one that comes from a Jewish life/news/food site and it mentioned that today, February 9 is National Lox & Bagels day. I immediately had to call my Dad and inform him of this event. I just knew he’d appreciate it. Of course he is out […]
