Hello all. We all love to cook and make great food, but there is always something that is just fantastic, but yet is a pain in the butt to make. For me it is always something like raw chicken or fish, something that will make a mess when I either tenderize it or clean and de-bone it.  I think… MORE

Sitting on a recent Southwest Airlines flight, I read a surprising statement – Bourbon-aging barrels outnumber the state’s residents by 360,000 in Kentucky. Being a Vodka-loving girl, I had no idea that drinks like the Sidecar and the Manhattan had gained in popularity. Apparently wine is… MORE

My kitchen has been silent.  It’s pretty much a ghost town in there.  You would think it would stay clean, though!  But no, it seems that when I am in a non-cooking phase it’s actually more cluttered because I am not there regularly to tidy up the debris that seems to pile up.I started… MORE

Dawn is an hour or two away as you unlock the doors and turn on the lights.  As you make your way across the dining room to start a pot of coffee, you notice that the table cloths are crooked on some of the tables and there are cracker crumbs on the floor, not really obvious, but still enough… MORE

All right.  We did an expose on the stupid shows that are jumping the shark over on the Food Network, and we discussed obnoxious chefs that should bob for french fries.  But we never got around to saying who we loved and adored. Tell me who your favorite tv chef is.  They can be from the Bravo… MORE

For much of my life, I followed recipes pretty much as written. Then, when I was somewhere in my 40s, I began experimenting by combining parts of one recipe with parts of another (or others). As time went on, I found myself wanting to add ingredients I was pretty sure would work, but I often… MORE

I've been craving CCF restaurant's corn succotash since I had it 2 months ago.  I've searched some recipes online and tried it for the first time tonight.  Even though I'm sure you can use frozen corn, I really feel using the freshest corn off the cob, grilled on the BBQ, is certainly worth… MORE

We usually have fresh squeezed lemonade for our dinner meal (when I can get my #2 son to make it). I enjoy the freshness of the fresh lemons with just a little sweetness. We used to use the frozen concentrate until we eliminated the HFCS from our diet. So how do you get all of the juice from… MORE

As you all know by now, I call em as I see em.  I don't believe I blogged about the title but I stated that when cupcakes got popular that it was a trend and would soon pass.  Sure enough people that mortgaged their homes to buy a cupcake shop lost their shirts as quickly as people lost their… MORE

I knew when I decided to write about this topic I would probably offend a whole lot of people and have death threats made against me.  But in my endless drive to educate the unenlightened proletariat on the truth and madness of the restaurant/ foodservice industry, I had to express myself on… MORE
