Food Bloggers Support for Sandy

November 2, 2012

This post doesn’t have a recipe.  It doesn’t have food, and it’s not about being gluten free.  Instead it’s about community.  As many of you know, last week, a crazy frankenstorm named Sandy hit the East Coast of the U.S. leaving millions without power, thousands evacuated from/lost their homes, several lost their lives, and it […]

For a while now I haven’t been very inspired to cook.  Always resorting to the same 4-5 dishes, I have felt like cooking nothing and anything all at once.  My husband will run to the store on his way home from work, and more than once when he asks what we need, all I’ve been […]


Monthly Mingle September – Americana

September 6, 2012

Happy September! This month I have the pleasure of hosting this month’s Monthly Mingle.  Monthly Mingle is a blogging event created by Meeta of What’s for Lunch Honey, and for this month’s theme, I chose Americana. To me,  Americana food is more than just apple pie and thanksgiving turkey – it can be sliders, barbecue,  and popular regional dishes […]

As a rule, I don’t make New Year’s resolutions. New Year’s resolutions were made to be broken, or worse, completely abandoned. Do you know anyone who has ever actually kept a New Year’s resolution throughout an entire year? I don’t. The problem is that in order to carry out a resolution, there needs to be a certain urgent and necessary motivation to sustain it. Most of us create a resolution at New Year’s because it’s often a time of reflecting on our successes and trials over the past year, and wanting to become better we say we are going to improve ourselves this year through “x”. It all seems well and good, but if you really felt a need to alter your life in some form, would you have waited all the way until New Year’s to make that happen?


Why I Cook

March 10, 2010

Last month, Michael Rulhman asked the world, “Why do you cook?”. Before figuring out why we cook, I think it’s worth examining our relationship with food – the two are quite related. Now I’m not sure what constitutes a “normal” relationship with food, but as time has gone by I am getting the impression that […]
