The Most Pitiful Thanksgiving Ever

No, this isn’t some holiday special brought to you by Charles Shulz (although if it were, I’d request that my part be played by The Little Red-Haired Girl. She’s so cute!). No, no – this is a true story of a Thanksgiving from my college years, also entitled “No Good Deed Goes Unpunished”. My junior […]

Because Who Doesn’t Need One More Thing to Make This Thanksgiving?

With family in town for Thanksgiving, I’m turning my attention away from the kitchen for a few days – but hey, everyone deserves a holiday, right? In the meantime, I thought it would be fun to teach you an easy Thanksgiving project that’ll really spruce up your holiday table this week. And because it uses a pumpkin, […]

Fly Me to the Moon

I’m currently in Orlando, attending my last trade show of the year. While I would always rather be home with Ben and the cats than on the road, there are some definite perks to this part of the business. Freebies and give-aways, meeting new people, making connections in the industry, and time with co-workers outside […]

You Say Tomayto, I Say Tomahto

 [Audio clip: view full post to listen] “When I follow (Julia’s) cooking times for pork (or even when I don’t) I wind up with sawdust, usually.  Maybe it’s because she was cooking before pork was the Other White Meat.  Turned out good this time, though.” – Julie Powell Remember these guys? Well, after three days of […]

Letting it Marinate…

Because my poor husband had some unpleasant dental work done yesterday, we opted to postpone our pork chop dinner plans until tonight and had soup and leftovers instead. I did go ahead and thaw the meat, and before I went to bed I used Julia’s recipe for Marinade Seche (salt marinade with herbs and spices). It was […]

Something Out of Nothing

 [Audio clip: view full post to listen] “You don’t have to cook fancy or complicated masterpieces – just good food from fresh ingredients.” – Julia Child   Somehow when I planned out this week’s meals, I seem to have left out a day. I got home last night and realized that my pork chops hadn’t […]

Feeling a Bit…Crabby?

 [Audio clip: view full post to listen] “I wrote about all the things a cook can do with crabs. Paul sketched crab parts. And we ate heaps of splendid crab bisque. Then we moved on to eggplant.” – Julia Child I’ve always been a fan of crab meat. When I was a kid, my uncle […]

Save the Neck for Me, Clark!

 [Audio clip: view full post to listen] “Ah me, there was still so much to learn, and cooking was only half of it. I felt I’d have to teach at least a hundred classes before I really knew what I was doing.” – Julia Child First, let me say this: we were down to a […]

I Think the U(ni)verse is Against Me

If any of you are Uverse customers, then we can mourn together in this weekend’s discovery that our cable company is duking it out with the head of (are you ready for this?) HGTV, Food Network, and the Cooking channel and have currently blocked all programming of these shows. NOOOOOOOO!!!! Imagine my surprise when I tuned […]

Two All-Beef Patties, Special Sauce…

[Audio clip: view full post to listen] “I’m not going to blow sunshine up your (skirt), Jus Lie is no miracle or anything, but it’s a nice enough simple clear sauce.” – Julie Powell  After Wednesday’s powerful fish soup (whose odor, by the way, is still permeating my entire house), I decided we should return to the […]
