A New Fave

October 16, 2011

Ricecookers.  How the heck did I live without one all these years?  I bought one…back not long before Mike got sick.  And then in a fit of buyer’s remorse instigated by the scorn of my kiddies, especially Chef Mikey, I stashed it in a cupboard and forgot about it.  Last night I needed rice…for an […]

Nut Roll

Add Nut Roll to the list of baked goods my son feels a good mom is compelled to make for her son the same way his Baba did for him.  Add me to the list of not so good mom’s.  My son is almost 25 and I’ve never made nut roll.  Why not?  I’ve been […]

Holiday Gift Giving: Kitchen Aid (Holiday Gift Receiving if you prefer)

December 8, 2010

Perhaps it is this surge of domesticity that finds me baking that had me checking out the Kitchen Aid site.  Or, perhaps it was the use of my very powerful Cuisineart 7 quart stand mixer so much recently and then using my hand mixer for something that sent me to the Kitchen Aid site (my […]

It’s Official

My diet’s on hiatus till after Christmas.  Even though Weight Watchers has now made all fruit free, the only kind of fruit I want is like apples…in cake.  Cherries…in cookies.  Raisins… in cookies.  Apricots…in Kiffles.  You get the drift right?  So I’ve deferred for now.  There’s a newfound domesticity that has somehow superceded my otherwise […]

Long Time…No See! Let’s Catch Up With Tea

Ahhhh….we’re almost to Halloween and the Autumn is flying by for me.  I’ve not written in weeks and weeks.  I can’t even blame school.  I’ve been pursuing loads of other things to keep me busy and I’ve just not taken time to write.  Doesn’t seem like stuff anybody would be interested in really.  First things […]

Food Blogs…my undoing?

July 15, 2009

Paramount on my mind is cash flow.  Closely behind it is my health.  Yes, the Fashionista is marching me around outside (.4 miles which I learned is about 1000 of the 10,000 steps I should take daily) and legislating my food intake.  In truth, it is making me feel better…a little stronger each day.  I […]

Happy Memorial Day to all of you…and welcome summer!  I’ve got me a glass of iced tea all ready for the front porch sitting.  It’s a quiet day around here today…something I relish.  All the kids are at work.  Even the grandkid is at work babysitting for the day and took the littlest grand along.  […]

Brownstone Front

You know, while visiting with my elderly cousin and perusing her family cookbook I came across a cake recipe that my family loves (I don’t) and hasn’t had since my Nana passed away.  The reason they haven’t had it is that although the recipe exists, she baked using a china teacup for her measurements…and it […]

A Chef In The House

March 9, 2009

Boy it’s good to have another cook in the house!  My dear son has graduated from culinary school at the local Community College.  Now this is a kid who fast tracked into the 6 yr. Dr. Physical Therapy program at a pretty impressive university.  He just decided, after much angst, that he did not want to […]
