Food & Wine Magazine 100 Tastes to Try in 2007 – Taste #15 Aspen Kettle Corn

Kettle corn and Food and Wine Magazine.

Bread, Glorious Bread!

If you haven’t figured this out already, I’m a carb girl. I love a loaf of fresh baked bread and I am convinced that I could live on bread alone. I have yet to meet a bread I didn’t like. That’s not to say that I haven’t had a few bread making disasters in my […]

She’s […]

Is it really okay to eat Puppy Chow??

“Is it really okay to eat Puppy Chow?” This is a question my almost 5 year old son asks me anytime I make this delicious snack. He just can’t get over the fact that we are eating something named after dog food, and that looks like dog food too! I wish it bothered me more […]

Chocolate-Dipped Shortbread Cookies

I am constantly making meals for people. Some people donate money, some people scour their house and pack up things to fling to Goodwill, some people volunteer their time, some people have charity auctions. I do those things as well, but what I find myself doing at least once on a weekly basis is cooking […]

Next time, we’re drinking!

My friend Angie came over yesterday to make our annual cookie plates. Several people who make cookie and goodie trays for friends and neighbors during the holiday’s spread it out over the course of several days. Not Angie and I. We decided this year that we would knock it all out in one afternoon. Now, […]
