December 12 , 2014 by Marga Munson - in Dessert, Holidays, News

Are you guys ready for Hanukah/Christmas/Kwanzaa/whichever holiday you prefer? On the present front, Mike and I have been slacking this year.

November 25 , 2014 by Marga Munson - in Holidays, News

Today is Thanksgiving. Every year, families and friends gather from far and wide to be together and celebrate life’s abundance on this day. It’s a really good time for reflection. Today also would have been my Pops’ 95th birthday. We lost him 8 months ago today. I think about him every day and the impact […]

Well folks… It finally happened. The Spicy Spatula finally has its own website. I couldn’t be more thrilled. This has definitely taken a lot of work, and especially from Mike, who is my IT master extraordinaire! There are definitely a few kinks to iron out here and there, but my little ole blog has it […]

Friday FU

July 11 , 2014 by Marga Munson - in News

Happy Friday everyone! Interestingly enough.. I recently discovered that you should NOT marinate meat in an alcohol based marinade for more than a couple of hours. I accidently left my Tequila Lime chicken marinating for more than 24-hours. When we finally cooked it, it was like pure tequila chicken. Not so good. In fact, most […]

In my never ending quest for culinary greatness, I have stumbled across some really cool finds on the internet.
