Laughter is brightest where food is best…

On a cold night there is nothing better than a warm hearty dish and since St. Patrick’s day is just around the corner I decided to be adventurous and make Cottage Pie. Cottage pie is also known as Shepard’s pie, it is a traditional UK dish that usually consists of a base made from beef, lamb, or […]

Gone bananas…

I have good intentions when I go to the market each weekend. I fantasize about the fantastic meals I will make that week and somehow think that every bit of food I buy will be consumed. Unfortunately, more often than not I have way too much food and can’t get to everything before it goes […]

Never gets old…

I frequently make pizza, without exaggeration I probably have it at least once a week. I never tire of pizza. Like sandwiches, pizzas are like a blank canvas, you can add any toppings or sauces that you want. Pizza is perfectly acceptable to have on any occasion too, you can dress it up or down. Recently I made BBQ […]

I’m burning up, burning up for your love…

The other night I felt like taking risks. I chose Valentine’s day dinner to debut a new dish! Quite a gutsy thing to do if you ask me. I could have gone with a trusty standard but I wanted to be bold. The stakes were high, it could have ended up in disaster but instead it […]

More than words…

I’ve been told the best thing I make is Molten Chocolate Lava cakes, so every Valentine’s day that’s what I make. It’s my way of telling loved ones “I love you” without saying it. 🙂 Before I ever attempted to make this delicious masterpiece I had to satisfy my craving by ordering them when out at my favorite restaurants. […]

Dangerous Love Affair…

Sometimes when I indulge in over decadent foods I silently (or not so silently) reprimand myself for my lack of self-control. There are some foods though, that no matter how much I know I shouldn’t eat it, because I will have to work out like a maniac to counteract its influence on me, I still succumb to the temptation. I’m too weak around […]

Again and again…

Cooking is a passion for me. I am more than happy to spend hours and hours in the kitchen that will result in just one meal. As much as I love to cook and am perfectly content to be buzzing around the kitchen, I live a very busy life that sometimes doesn’t afford me the […]

I’m in it for the food…

Now, I’m the first to admit it, I’m don’t know anything about football. The only reason I even know when it’s football season is because I remember in high school always going to the games in the beginning of the school year, to socialize of course. The only reason you’ll ever catch me watching a […]

Earthy goodness …

I love anything that tastes earthy; wines, tea, food, etc. What is that earthy taste I am referring to? It’s a flavor that instantly makes you feel grounded, warm, taken care of, clean, whole, etc. Basically, if you’ve ever tasted something and you feel like you can taste that it came out of the ground […]
