I should preface this post by saying that I don’t like mangoes. I’m terrified of curry. I detest mayonnaise and celery. And all of these are in this salad. And yet, I love this salad. So there. It’s true: miracles can happen. I found this salad in a cookbook that I picked up at Half [...]

I saw another blogger post something similar to these and I had to try them. I didn’t own any silicone pans, so I ordered the necessary pan from Amazon and followed her instructions and… failed. So I tried again. And failed. I went back to the post and reread her directions. She noted that she [...]

Ah, Rome. The end of our trip. We quickly learned that Rome is a tough place to end a three week European vacation. It’s a very busy city with loads of cars (something I had not experienced since Germany, more than a week ago!) and their public transportation system makes you want to pull your [...]

Cinque Terre is translated literally as “five lands” and it refers to the five towns that some crazy architects thrust into the cliffs along the Adriatic Sea. The region is stunningly gorgeous with its ocean views and huge hills that drop into the sea. We were excited to have a resting point in the middle [...]

When I told my friends that we were headed to Venice, girls who had traveled there gushed about how much I would love this city. They were absolutely right. Venice may be my favorite place. I could not get enough of it! I took pictures every time we turned down itty bitty alleyways or crossed [...]

Saucy Mama sent me a LOT of products to use in my recipe creations. Several people at my birthday party last weekend saw the Saucy Mama products displayed on my kitchen table and requests to be official taste testers poured forth.

This is for all of you who think I’m an amazing cook who never has flops in the kitchen. If this ain’t a flop, I don’t know what is: You know how recipes always tell you to let cakes cool before removing them from the pan? Yeah. Well, I highly recommend following that advice, or [...]

I started drinking organic milk a couple of years ago when a friend suggested it might help improve my digestion. Going from $3.29 a gallon [...]
