Well it finally happened.  After months of needling, begging, haranguing, threatening, and bribery from the Hubs, I finally bit the bullet and purchased a spice rack.  Thanks to those lovely people at IKEA, I even found one that I actually like. Hubs installed it for me, and I spent the… MORE

A comment from BellesAZ yesterday got me thinking about food blunders.  You know, stuff that is funny in hindsight, but not so much at the time.  I have LOTS of them, and I spent most of yesterday trying to remember what they are.  I should have written them down, I have terrible Mommy brain,… MORE

I'm always on the hunt for interesting recipes.  I have a spice cabinet--that's right, it's a full two-door kitchen cabinet-- that is so jam packed with herbs, spices, rubs and marinades that every time I open the door something falls out.  Finding, let's say nutmeg, can take ten minutes and… MORE

I picked up a lot of produce at the store yesterday.  Went a little gung-ho actually, but it all looked so lovely in comparison to what I usually find at WM that I couldn't help myself.  The nectarines had that perfect summer perfume and I could smell them as soon as I walked in the door. … MORE

Yesterday was Wednesday, of course the day when the new sales fliers come out for the local grocery stores.  Since I'm on this new Walmart avoidance kick, I only looked at the flier for the store closest to me, Fry's (Kroger to most of you).  They had some great sales this week; 1/2 price… MORE

It's hot.  You've heard me say it before, and I'll say it again.  It's HOT.  I love Arizona in the winter; our weather is fantastic for 7 months straight.  But we pay for it, and we pay for it for five solid months from May through October.  This is not to say that the weather doesn't have… MORE

I took a trip to the grocery store yesterday.  Not too crazy, right?  I mean, people do it every day.  But not me.  Sadly, I cannot recall when the last time was that I stepped into an actual grocery store.  I'm a Walmart mom.  I don't know when exactly this happened; it was a gradual decline… MORE

Okay, usually "inbox" recipes don't really do much for me.  I'll check them out, of course, but they generally get deleted pretty quickly.  Yesterday, King Arthur Flour sent an email that had a recipe attached for doughnut muffins.  DOUGHNUT MUFFINS!!!  Really, the only thing that… MORE
