Food and Wine Top 100 Tastes – #40 Southern Italian Wine

I will be the first to admit… I am not a wine snob. My husband and I enjoy wine, we enjoy going to wine tastings, and we have a nice collection of wine. We do not, however, have the faintest idea about what wines are better than others and why. I personally like to pick […]

Thinking Ahead

This morning I had a little confrontation with our garbage men. I was backing out of my garage and in my driveway when the trash truck pulled up and blocked my way. I was completely fine with that and patiently waited while they empted the trash and recycle bin. I lost my patience when the […]

I’m a Pepper, You’re a Pepper….

Wouldn’t you like to be a pepper too? Remember that Dr Pepper commercial from the late 70′s, early 80′s? Quite the catchy little tune, wasn’t it?

Power of Suggestion

I am a marketers dream. I am the target audience that marketers go after when they are trying to entice customers merely by the power of suggestion. It will be 4:00 in the afternoon and a commercial will come on the television for a restaurant. I watch, get hungry, and can’t get that restaurant out […]

I left soon after to take my daughter to dance class only to return to find the comments by you all with some fantastic pizza dough recipe […]

Pizza crust request and a Meme

I have a quick request this morning. I’m making a southwest pizza tonight and have been browsing the web looking for a new pizza crust recipe to try. I’m looking for a crust that is in between thin and thick… kind of like the hand tossed crust at Pizza Hut. Do any of you have […]

I was in a Simple and Delicious Mood

Apparently, when I made out my menu plan for the first part of January, the Jan/Feb issue of Simple and Delicious magazine was in front of me. I think it actually arrived in the mail the day I was doing my menu plan because over half of the meals for the first half of the […]
