ShareThis latest installment in the Mommy Wars has me fired up and feeling the need to vent a little. Oh, hi. Remember me? Caterer turned recipe blogger turned stay at home mom who left you all for months to lap up every second with my kid? Right. Glad we got that awkward re-entry over with… […]

ShareI’ve been getting pretty fired up about our first holiday season in our new neighborhood. Starting today, we’ll have a houseful of family for my favorite all-American holiday. Beside the fact that Thanksgiving is a holiday based solely on food, love of country, and giving thanks, it’s also the official start of the holidays. In […]

ShareAs a kid, I’d get to request at least one meal per week.  Mom would sit at the kitchen table on Sunday, pen and paper in hand, and ask everyone what they wanted for dinner over the next five days.  It usually didn’t go that well. Asking on Sunday what someone wants to eat on […]

ShareOne of the last lines of one of the greatest movies ever made goes a little something like this: “Remember, Red, hope is a good thing.  Maybe the best of things.  And no good thing ever dies.” Andy Dufrense writes that to his friend Red from Mexico, prompting Red to break his parole and head […]

ShareI’ve just returned from two weeks away.  My apologies for not writing sooner, but I just wanted to leave it all behind, and, sadly readers, that means you too. Don’t take it personally.  Please? If I tell you about my vacation, will it make you feel better?  No?  Well it’ll make me feel better so […]

ShareI’m in a fight with my stove.  We aren’t speaking at present.  The problem? The bitch is electric. Most food people would agree that gas is great. Gas is king.  Electric is for “cooks” who want easy cleanup and are afraid of fire. Not me! Not me! I love fire.  I would have been queen […]

ShareMy father is not a cook.  Let’s get this straight right away.  He is a great many wonderful things, but as far as cooking goes, it’s toast and delivery pizza (and the toast thing is extremely rare, though he’s been doing pretty well on the grill, of late).  My mother buys pre-cut Cracker Barrel cheese […]

SharePost-President’s Day is when I start getting really antsy. For spring. For sunshine and flowers and chirping birds. For the prospect of a light sunburn.  For food that isn’t quite so heavy – fresh produce and lots of grilled treats. Then I realize that Punxsutawney Phil did in fact see his shadow (or didn’t he? […]

ShareWe always thought my grandmother’s pork chops were the best on the planet.  My brother and I, that is.  If you asked my uncle, he’d have told you they were like hockey pucks, and could have killed someone if thrown from the back porch. Somewhere between 1958 and 1978, Mam (my grandmother, also known around […]

ShareHello, my long lost friends!  I’m sorry to have been away for so long.  Two whole weeks.  I have the most horrible case of Irish guilt right now.  Did you think I’d forgotten you?  Never!  It’s just that, well, I’d forgotten you.  I was on vacation and left technology behind. Have you ever tried that?  […]
