Surprise yourself…you’re worth it!

Some days are harder than others to move forward in life.  I have had a few of those in the past few months (maybe quite a bit more than a few, to be honest).  Now that it is just me, I find it harder to invest in good meals for myself.  It seems like a…

Finding time for Tuna Steak Piccolini…

I despise life sometimes. Well, let me rephrase that to be a bit more positive. *wink* I despise how life can get in the way of throwing together a fabulous meal every night. The definition of life in this statement would be…long and tiring workdays, lack of groceries because of growing bills, lack of inspiration because…

First try…Poached Eggs and Hollandaise…SUCCESS! (kinda)

You never know when you will be inspired. New things come around the bend at every turn, and you really have to be prepared for what you’re thrown. Now, I’ll be honest, the idea of making my own poached egg scared the crap out of me. Much less, making a Hollandaise sauce was giving me…

Will Cook for Foo: Week 10–Cheeking Peppers Vlog

Here’s the thing about Foo Fighters. I just recently learned (after starting my journey of the “Will Cook for Foo” posts) that their Tour Rider is supposedly a hilarious concoction of humor.

Sundays with Friends: Getting Hot with Jen and her Picante Salsa

Today’s Sundays with Friends comes from a true Southern Belle that I met at my real job. *smiles* I feel very blessed to have met her, because she has been there when I have needed her in the past couple of years. She swears that her Southern accent has rubbed off on me, and I’ll…

The perfect Saturday morning breakfast…to me anyhow…

I’m sure some of you know how it feels to have to rush in the morning to get yourself ready. I can’t even imagine having to get someone else ready as well. Honestly, I’m good if I can even make it on time to work. The bed is just so comfy. Come to think of…

Cilantro dipping sauce anyone?

First off…Happy Memorial Day to all of our troops and veterans!  I personally appreciate everything and every sacrifice made for us here at home.  Thank a Veteran today, and pay your respects to those gone on before us whilst protecting our great country. I tried something new today with the Cilantro out of my garden….

There comes a time in everyone’s foodie history where they feel as though they need to branch out, encourage their tastebuds to mature, and please their palate with different delicacies from around the world.  I’m trying, I really am.  I was having the discussion with the hub tonight that we really don’t know what authentic…

“Eh, it’s edible.”

Yeah, yeah, yeah…we’ve all heard this phrase.  We may have even used this phrase.  But, goodness!  This phrase is so vague.  If someone ask you if you liked the food you just ate, that they prepared, shouldn’t you at least give them an honest opinion.  Not, “Eh, it’s edible.”  Did that tell me what you…
