I know, I know...I've been M.I.A. Sorry!
Passover Desserts no longer have to taste like cardboard!
Passover Desserts no longer have to taste like cardboard!
This is what is currently on my night stand...
Today Levi is 8 years old.
It’s been a busy week. The night before Thanksgiving has always been a kind of “whatever” meal. However, this year, the Wednesday night before was the first night of Hannukah. A full [...]
Gluten Free Sufganiyot are total game changers!
Comfort food with a crust. Need I say more? Thanksgiving, for me, is all about the sides. I do love my gravy, but I prefer it over my rustic herb stuffing. Forget the turkey and save it for a big [...]
I cannot wrap my head around the fact that next week is Thanksgiving. This year, on Thanksgiving, we have a double celebration. The first night of Hannukah falls on Thanksgiving this year. I am [...]
I know, I have been M.I.A. Eating, cooking, and planning has remained a huge part of my life, but photographing and writing about is a whole nother story. This past summer my business consulting [...]
If my kids had their way our pantry would be loaded up with spicy chips, frozen pizza snacks, noodles with freeze dried whatever – packaged in a Styrofoam container, cream filled sandwich [...]
Yesterday was Sunday. My favorite day of the week. No lunches to pack, no sporting events to race to, and no errands. It is my day to organize, clean, and prep for the busy week ahead. Sweat [...]
Yesterday was the “big game”. It’s was also Sunday, the day that I spend my morning prepping for the week ahead. Knowing what needs to get done allows me to not stress over the [...]
The key to getting whole, unprocessed weeknight meals on the table in 40 minutes or less comes down to prep and organization. I am always met with awe and a “how do you do that” when [...]
Halloween is days away. Our house has been deemed the “meeting place” which inevitably means dinner first. What do I feed 12 boys, ranging in age from 7 – 14 without spending my [...]
A few weeks back I made an angel food cake. The recipe called for 10 egg whites. When it was all said and done, I had 10 egg yolks left over. And when ever my kids see the glass jar filled [...]
When my friend Amanda started her campaign to do a wonderful act of kindness for others, I was completely on board. Desserts for the Deserving is a wonderful event where lucky nominee’s [...]
Cookie dough lives in our freezer. Pancakes, waffles and muffins are made and eaten weekly. Cake, on the other hand, has been a thing of the past. Until now!
I am not a big drinker. It’s rare that I finish a glass a wine at dinner and I rarely order a “cocktail”. With that said, when I do invite friends over for dinner, I like to [...]
Nothing really speaks summer better than fresh rhubarb and fresh strawberries. I love going ot the farmers market and smelling the scents of summer. Fresh fruit is everywhere: berries, stone [...]
I am almost in a place where I may be able to come up for air (maybe after Tuesday). The past 6 weeks, or so, has left me exhausted, spent, weary, and in desperate need of a 2 hour massage. Or a [...]
I really did not want to post, write, or share another chocolate chip cookie recipe. I mean, come on, how many more chocolate chip cookie recipes do we need in our repertoire? Well, maybe, just one.
Traditional shortbread should really be called “several sticks of butter – cookies”. The butter could very well be what makes them so additively mouth watering. Shortbread is [...]
Over the past several months, I have been testing various gluten-free doughnut recipe. Lots of not so good tasting experiments have come out of our kitchen. That didn’t stop me from me from [...]
Almost every child I know, loves the idea of Chinese style orange chicken. Hmmm… it’s fried, it’s salty, it’s sweet, and it’s crunchy. I get it. There have been more [...]
Having sweets on hand is sort of expected from my three boys. Not having something in the designated glass jar is visited with great disappointment. With the shift to a more gluten free [...]
Tonight is the first night of Passover. Passover is essentially a gluten free holiday. With the absence of wheat, rye, barley, spelt, and oats for 8 nights, creates limited choices. Protein [...]
French Ceramic Bowls from D.L. Rhein When it comes to holidays, I do not discriminate. Any excuse to bake massive amounts of new treats, purchase unnecessary packaging, ribbons, and lovely [...]
Passover is around the corner. In the past, thinking about cleaning out my cupboards, omitting all the Chametz (anything made with wheat, barley, rye, spelt, or oats or any product that is made [...]
Lately, all Eli can talk about is hot wings; specifically establishments that advertise hot wings on T.V.(I may have to limit the T.V. watching to only that that has been recorded, thus-avoiding [...]
I have spent the last few weeks cleaning out my pantry, fridge, cupboards, and freezer. My son, Levi, has Eczema. I grew up with eczema, it was such a burden. I lived with it my whole life, tried [...]
New Years Eve is tomorrow night. Before kids, the hubs and I would pick a great restaurant, go out with friends, drink too much, and spend way too much money. After several years of that, we [...]
I have been in my kitchen for three weeks straight. Baking, candy making, creating the packaging, and making my list of who gets what. On top of that, I have catered two events, made gingerbread [...]
This past week, one of my clients hosted a great event with Laura Filipowicz of Bag Lady Promotions. I have known about Laura for a while, but it wasn’t until a few weeks ago, over vegan [...]
I have been an avid reader of Cooks Illustrated Magazine since 1980. In the November/December 1995 issue they had Perfect Pecan Pie – 3 ways. A traditional, a triple chocolate chunk, and a [...]
A few weeks ago, I took the kids to visit my friend Molly on her new farm: Apricot Lane. She invited me and 100 or so of her friends and we all enjoyed the scenery, organic drinks and food, and [...]
Lucy Lean and I met about a year ago over dinner at The Avalon Hotel. I liked her immediately and her energy was infectious. Then, a few weeks later, I learned that she would by my roommate [...]
My friends over at French Friday’s with Dorie have been cooking up some amazing dishes and I have, sadly, missed the party. It has been a whirlwind, these past two months and my normal [...]
Condiments, sauces, syrups, coffee creamers, and a host of other, bottled pantry items line our grocery store shelves. I am fascinated by how many different kinds of brands there are. Up [...]
I know it’s Wednesday, and Wednesday is supposed to be “Salad Wednesday”. Tonight, we will be having salad, but today is National Ice Cream Day. How can I write [...]
Last year, on the 4th of July, we decided to have a bake sale. I am trying to teach my kids how fortunate they are and the organization Share our Strength is helping us achieve that. [...]
I don’t know if I would really call this dish a “recipe”. No need for measuring cups, measuring spoons, tons of ingredients, or chopping. I cannot tell you how many times I [...]
Last week I hosted a cooking class with my friend, “J”. Each year we donate a cooking class to our school’s auction and this years theme was “Little Bites”. [...]
