Growing up, Friday night was always pizza night…because who doesn’t love pizza?!? Plus nothing goes with football like pizza (hey, we’re Texans! Also upon further reflection–aka growing older–I’ve found beer to be a better accompaniment to football, but at five years old pizza is probably the better option). Of course, until I moved to New … Continue reading Pizza Night!

I love soup. I know I’ve mentioned this before–like every January, but January seems to be a good time for soup. At least in the Northern Hemisphere. Of course, I’m one of those weird-can-eat-soup-any-day-of-the-year people so I don’t necessarily need cold weather to indulge, just a spoon. This is very handy when one is experiencing … Continue reading Soup, Glorious Soup!
Pretty much since the arrival of Lucille and the discovery that–with the right accessories–she could make ice cream, I have wanted an ice cream maker. Not necessarily that ice cream maker (I’m open to seeing other ice cream makers), but I do love making ice cream…in part because I love eating ice cream, especially homemade … Continue reading Put A Stick In It!
I love scones. Probably the best scone that I’ve ever eaten was a bacon, cheddar, & chive scone. I mean, c’mon–it is bacon and cheese! But that’s not why we’re here today. Peaches. Peaches are why we’re here today. We are (at least in the Northern Hemisphere) smack dab in the middle of peach season! … Continue reading Peachy Keen!
I love deviled eggs. I could literally make myself sick eating them. I’m quite certain that at least once [or ten times] in the last 4 decades, I have. I don’t think I’ve met a deviled egg that I haven’t liked. My aunt’s are probably my favorite [I’ll let them duke it out as to … Continue reading The Incredible, Edible [Deviled] Egg!
No, these aren’t your mother’s sauces–these are THE Mother Sauces. I mean, your mother may in fact make them, but maybe not. Anyway lately they’ve been everywhere in my life. Except in my kitchen–ain’t nobody got time for that! For those of you who don’t study French cuisine, they are the five sauces upon which … Continue reading The Mother Sauces
I cook with wine…sometimes I even add it to the food. ~W.C. Fields This French Chardonnay-Sauvignon blend was a delicious pairing for my Mushroom & Corn Risotto (and a bargain–Cheap Wine Curious, I know you’d be so proud!). It had a light, crisp mouthfeel with a big apple taste and a delicate grapefruit finish–perfect alongside … Continue reading Cooking with Wine (Thirsty Thursday #6)
Now that you have The Jackson Five playing background music in your head, I have a confession. You know those silly/annoying emails that circulate every couple of years in which you answer questions about yourself? Yeah, I’m one of those annoying people who not only fills them out, but sends them to nearly everyone in … Continue reading Easy as ABC…
Yesterday started my birthday week. By that, I don’t mean it’s the week of my birthday, but rather: starting yesterday, I have at least one birthday a day until the end of the month (and yes, I know it’s technically 8 days, but channel your inner Beatles and work with me here people!). The only … Continue reading Birthdays Galore!
