Geniune Italian – Giada De Laurentiis

  My good friend Kathy and I, along with our husbands, went to a Giada De Laurentiis book signing a couple of weeks ago. We were 4 of about 1,000 eager fans who were lucky enough to get tickets to the sold out event. We were all anxious to find out if Giada is the […]

Gourmet Magazine May 2007

Written for Paper Palate on the Well Fed Network One of the biggest complaints I hear about Gourmet magazine is that it has too many advertisements. People get frustrated at the amount of magazine space that is taken up by the ads and tend to skip reading the issues all together because of this. I […]

South of the Border S’Mores

Written for Kids Cuisine on the Well Fed Network Getting creative at snack time is always a challenge for me. I know that other moms share this struggle as well. It is hard to get out of the cheese and crackers rut. Thank goodness there are resources out there to help us out. One of […]

The Bundt Cake Movement

Bundt cakes always get a bad rap for being boring. When I think of bundt cakes, I think of little old ladies and their church pot luck suppers. Bundt cakes seem to be all over the place at those events.  People seem to like bundt cakes, but they rarely get the ooohhh’s and ahhhhh’s they […]

Ooooey Gooey Monkey Bread

  I have a friend who does not like for her kids to get messy. Her kids don’t know about condiments…dipping things in ranch dressing, ketchup, barbecue sauce, etc is something they have yet to experience. Jelly on their sandwiches? Forget about it… too messy. Pancakes and waffles simply get butter. There is no such […]
