King Arthur Flour Blog & Bake

Last week I had an opportunity that made me squeal with delight; I was invited to attend the Blog & Bake™ conference at King Arthur Flour’s Baking Education Center. I want to give many thanks to Allison Furbish and the entire crew at King Arthur Flour for bringing me there and giving me three days [Read On]

Dirty Chai | Make Ahead Mondays

Dirty chai sounds kind of wrong, doesn’t it? In a sense, really, it is. It’s the marriage of tea and coffee. …And in another sense, it’s a metaphor for my marriage. I am a tea drinker. My husband is a coffee drinker. In fact, he never voluntarily drank tea until he met me. I lived [Read On]

Seared Mushrooms and a Mushroom Melt

I want to talk about my new favourite sandwich. This sandwich firmly bridges the gap between dude food and chick vittles. Grilled cheese is always the ultimate in sandwichery, but grilled cheese that is crammed to overspilling with seared mushrooms? It’s the best of all worlds. The combination of gooey, salty cheese and umami packed [Read On]

Just something I wanted to S.H.A.R.E. with you all

Since then, I’ve had a couple of surgeries, some chemo, and radiation, which is now ongoing, and except for the cancer, I’m in really good [Read On]

Mind-blowing, good, clean fun.

We are having a wonderously wintery weather day.  The snow is blowing and it’s *brrrrrr* cold out there.  It’s enough to make you pull on the wool socks, a super thick sweat shirt, brew a cup of tea (or coffee or cocoa), and curl up with a good book.  Trouble is, there’s only so much [Read On]

It’s a Yummy Earth.

My sister Jessamine’s kids have severe food allergies.  The last time I had a peek at the list of no-no foods it included soy, corn, dairy, gluten, wheat, chemical preservatives and chemical dyes, among other things.  Those of you who spend as much time as I do staring at and clucking over product labels will recognize [Read On]

Homemade English Muffins

In last Monday’s column for the Record-Eagle, I ran a recipe for Speed of Light English Muffins.  Due to the constraints of space, I was unable to go on and on and on about what I do with those English muffins.  Mercifully for my family, the unusal ‘beneficiaries’ of conversations about my culinary obsessions, I [Read On]
