Is it worth it?  Do you ever think that? Eat another piece of cake? Is it worth the calories? (YES….it is cake….life is short.) Go to the fancy restaurant? Is it worth the extra money to eat off little plates decorated like pieces of artwork? (YES….because usually pretty food is delicious food.) Eat the spring asparagus? Is it worth your pee smelly funky for a day?  (YES…I went there and I’ll tell you why……) I guess this might be one of my most unappetizing blogs (and if you don’t want to read it…I understand so you can scroll straight to the recipe below) but let’s face it,  ifRead More →

What does television mean to you?  Are you one of those people who has favorite programs?  Can you watch a series over and over again because you enjoy the characters so much? I probably have watched more than my fair share of TV but in my mind….I didn’t just watch….I was part of the cast. I ran across the prairie with Laura Ingalls.   I said good-night to John Boy each week on the Waltons.  I shook a tambourine with Partridge Family Band.  I was one of the Brady kids. I waited in line for the bathroom with the 8 Bradford siblings. The Cunninghams always welcomed meRead More →

What do you think of eggs? Are they a go-to morning food or do you eat them anytime of the day?  Are you only a scrambled person or do you change it up based upon your mood? Do you look at a meal and think it would be better with an egg on top or is your meal based around the egg? I love the versatility of eggs.  Poking a perfectly poached egg and watching the yolk burst out gives me the chills, the crispy edges of an oil fried egg makes me tingle and the bright yellow yolk of a flawless hard-boiled egg makes me feelRead More →

One of the best things about blogging about food is that there are opportunities to learn around every corner.  It doesn’t always have to be about food, it can also give you an experience to learn a little bit about yourself by meeting legends in the industry. On Tuesday, May 8, 2018, I was invited to join Olives from Spain  for an intimate reception hosted by…..wait for it….José Andrés!!!!!! “Named one of Time’s “100 Most Influential People,” awarded “Outstanding Chef” and “Humanitarian of the Year” by the James Beard Foundation, José Andrés is an internationally-recognized culinary innovator, author, educator, television personality, humanitarian and chef/owner of ThinkFoodGroup.” ThereRead More →

  When does a saying turn into a cliché?  I never realized that “clichés” were frowned upon.  I have a bone to pick with the people who are on the anti-cliché wagon. I thought there was no time like the present to publicly support these taboo sayings.  It actually makes me feel like I have a bee in my bonnet when I read all the banter about how clichés show a lack of creativity in a person’s writing.  (And yes, I am using clichés on purpose in this blog.) I don’t want to beat a dead horse but I lean toward a cliché in myRead More →
