Everybody Loves Braciole

Do you like watching syndicated television?  Are you someone who knows every episode of Friends by heart?  Maybe you are a fan of Big Bang Theory because after years of watching it you may actually understand some of the science.  Or maybe you just like the simplicity of watching the Waltons over and over.  (My husband has an issue …

Asian Soup

Tom Yum Sum

I think I have become kind of a penny pincher.  It is weird because I’m not a penny pincher about EVERYTHING.  I buy quality clothing and shoes but draw the line at super fancy purse. I do get my hair cut and colored professionally but I go to a home salon to get it done.  And usually with food, …

Red. Green. Don’t be Mean.

TECHNICALLY. TECHNICALLY.  TECHNICALLY.   I am writing the word multiple times to remind myself how much I say and NEED to stop saying it.  I know a lot of people use that word too but it seems that people now use it in a manner to correct others or prove their own points.

No Time Tikka Masala

You know what is hard sometimes…being a food blogger.  Now before I get you shaking your head or wagging your finger at me, let me explain. I haven’t been cooking much lately….or eating as much either.  Between the balance of dog training and a few Crohn’s issues, it has been a little bit of a challenge to …

I’m a Muffin Monster
