I love deep frying food. When the weather gets cold the ice cream maker goes away and the deep fryer comes out. French fries, donuts, battered Oreos, everything tempura. It’s all amazing. But what isn’t amazing is how expensive peanut oil is. The more food particles I can filter out of it, the longer I […]
I’ve lived in the same neighborhood since 2002. That’s twelve years of going to the same diner. And I always get one of three meals: Grilled Cheese with Fries, Egg Salad Sandwich with Onion Rings, or Bagel with Cream Cheese and Home Fries. (Incidentally, time of day does not affect which one I choose.) Now […]
Biscuits are one of the quickest, easiest homemade breads to get from ingredients to table. Nothing needs to be room temperature (in fact, the colder the better!), and the dough doesn’t need to rise before baking. However, that doesn’t mean that I want to get out measuring cups and spoons on a Wednesday morning just […]
I can’t believe I’m writing an entire post about Soup Socks, but here I am. I was going to wait and put together a post like “Five Helpful Kitchen Items You Need To Buy Right Now,” but it’s late and I’m tired and I just want to spread the word to the soup and sauce […]

I love to bake, I really do. For me, baking is its own reward, getting to create something that I can share with other people and make them happy through food. But with the Bake It Happen campaign, my baking actually raises money – and no, I don’t have to sell the baked goods! It’s […]
I’ve been meaning to write about this for a long time. Someone other than me must be suffering from this and not know it. It took me months to figure out that eggs were making me sick to my stomach. Maybe I can help someone figure it out quicker than I did. About fifteen months […]
I think I follow too many food boards on Pinterest. But at least I have my daughter’s lunch packed for the first day of school. Thanks for the inspiration, Kelby!
While I did write a sponsored post for Pompeian Olive Oil recently, this video was done on my own and was not sponsored in any way.
Yesterday I was tidying up the house a bit in anticipation of the kids coming home today from sleep away camp. Jake’s been gone for almost two weeks, Fiona for almost six. Basically I didn’t want them to know how slovenly I’d been while they were gone. I came across Jake’s NY Yankees lunchbox in […]
