As as Allrecipes Brand Ambassador, I was tasked this month with preparing, photographing, and reviewing two Mazola "heart healthy" recipes.  Though I was provided Mazola corn oil (and apparently a sauté pan that's en route as a "thank you"), I'm capable of forming my own opinions and they're… MORE

I don't even have a half witty title for this one...Ore-Ida. Potatoes are awesome, pretty much in any form in Mr. LTH's world.  Frozen Ore-Ida fries had long been a staple in his life, pre me.  While I have no holier-than-though aversion to frozen fries, I don't need the extra essentially… MORE

Disclaimer:  Yes, I'm a Brand Ambassador.  Yes, Johnsonville provided me with coupons for their product (and even a little gift, to boot).  However, I am the boss of me.  Not only am I the boss of me, but I generally like to go against the grain, so.... I freely admit, I groaned, out loud,… MORE

In our freezer, that's where!  Each year, we purchase a side of beef from a local friend (and farmer!), so I was thrilled to learn one of the sponsors for August's Allrecipes Brand Ambassador challenges was the "Beef.  It's What's For Dinner" campaign.  Before we began purchasing the annual… MORE

Part of this month's challenge as an Allrecipes Brand Ambassador was to cook using (provided) GOYA products.  Now, I've seen GOYA in grocery stores everywhere I've ever lived, but have NEVER bought/used any of their products.  There's no reason for the unintended slight; I've just never made… MORE

About Me
I like to eat and I tend to be a picky eater, therefor, I like to cook so I can be in control of what I eat. Thankfully, Mr. LTH eats everything and anything (except sweet potatoes and vinegar).
My favorite things to cook
I'm a very mood dependent cook: what I'm in the mood for dictates what I like to cook. I've found I really enjoy making new "faceless" recipes and adding a face to them.
My cooking triumphs
I consider everything that comes out of our kitchen and people enjoy/eat to be a triumph...
My cooking tragedies
Underbaked cakes + wire racks + oven to "finish cooking" = a very messy oven
