Ricotta Cheese

Ricotta Cheese

I love cheese. I think that probably 90% of the thinks I make contain cheese.  One day I was thinking about how awesome it would be to make some cheese myself.  I think there was a Groupon for a cheese making kit or something like that.  So I went out and bought some stuff to […]

Jolly Rancher Vodka

  The most popular post on this blog is Skittles Vodka Party Favors.  It turns out that everyone really likes brightly colored DIY flavored vodkas.  Many of the comments I’ve received are about variations.  Different liquors, different sizes, or different candies.  People are so creative!  I’d never thought of half of the things that people […]

Cheese Fondue

Cheese Fondue

Sometimes I get a little bit too excited over little things.  For example, yesterday Pandora started playing “Hit Me Baby One More Time” by Britney Spears and I’m ashamed to admit I was so excited, I started texting people about it. Another thing that gets me feeling overly giddy is anything free.  If I see […]

Elderflower Sangria

Oh…hello there!  It’s been a while, hasn’t it?  I wish I had some really cool excuse like getting recruited for a super secret spy agency and I was out of the country being awesome and doing cool things.  But I wasn’t.  Let me give you a short update on what I’ve been up to.  I […]

Peanut Sauce

This sauce makes a great dipping sauce for spring rolls or a sauce to go on meats, stir fry, veggies, or even pasta.  It’s very versatile and has an Asian flavor to it.  Try it with whatever your making next time that’s Asian themed and it’ll really bring the whole dish up a level.  My […]

Miso Soup

As you may have guessed, I’m REALLY picky.  I pretty much assume anything I don’t like must be gross.  Typically, I’m wrong.  The most egregious error I’ve made due to my pickiness was assuming that all soups were gross. Every time I try a new soup, I think back to my not-soup-eating days and all […]

Smoky Corn Soup

Smoky Corn Soup

I’ve been a little obsessed with corn.  I’m not sure why, because I’ve never really been a huge corn fan.  Yet for some reason, when I went to the grocery store the other day and I saw fresh corn, I couldn’t stop putting more and more in my basket.  It started out as “Oh, I’ll […]

Green Smoothies and my first GIVEAWAY

March 7, 2012
Green Smoothies

When Hilary Greenleaf sent me an email asking if I wanted to talk about green smoothies and her new book “The Green Smoothie Diet,” my first thought was “No way, smoothies with spinach are definitely no good.”  For some reason, I decided to reply and say, “Let me check out your book first.”  After reading […]

Plum Margarita

Plum Margarita

I love plums.  They are my second favorite food (because whose favorite food isn’t mac and cheese?).  When I saw them in the store for the first time this year, I freaked out.  There weren’t very many and they were way overpriced because it’s not quite plum season yet, but I bought some anyway.  Generally […]
