Zack’s vs. Boston’s : It’s a good reason to be a divided household.

We all have it…or at least hopefully we do. Frankly, I can’t imagine a little town without it honestly. In Burlington, we have these two hot dog shops that seem to be in constant competition, Zack’s and Boston’s. Or, at least you rarely hear one mentioned without the other being mentioned as well, and they…

Will Cook for Foo: Week 8–Murdering Eggplant

During the recent Farmer’s Market trip, we ran across some unique looking Eggplants. Now, let me tell you, I don’t really enjoy Eggplant. At least the time I did have them, I didn’t. They just sponge up what liquid they are put in. Usually that’s being fried in oil, and they end up being limp…

Will Cook for Foo: Week 5 – Learning to Wok again

I’m not sure how old most of you are. But, the one thing I can guarantee is that we have all experienced a rough time in our own lives. Whether you vocalized your rough time and feelings, or you leaned on someone for help, we’ve all had a time where we were begging for a…

A Rustic Peach Plum Tart

I’m not the biggest on making dough from scratch. I’m really not. I find it easier just to pull a refrigerated pie crust out of the fridge, slide the roll out of the box it is in with it’s other roll of crust, and use that. Here lately though, it seems as if I have…

Lemon Cucumbers….What???

So this certainly is intriguing, isn’t it??? Who would’ve thought that these two words would go together? I surely didn’t. However, it did create a nice pretty cucumber. *smiles* This one is short and sweet. I thought you might find them interesting as well. Pretty, round, yellow, still stubby like a long green cucumber is,…

Cilantro to Coriander: The Clark Kent of Herbs

I posted back in May this year about my Cilantro plant and a tasty Cilantro dip.  You can find the old post by clicking here.  Cilantro is something that will need to be planted in abundance in my garden next year – love, love, love it!

Sundays with Friends: Pickles and OCD with Susan

Throughout life we meet people that make impressions on our lives, and we also meet people that we could care less if we see them again.  I hate to say it, but it’s true.  In the short time that I had to get to know this next Sundays with Friends featured blogger, she made quite…

Roasted Peach Whiskey Sauce from Stonewall Kitchen

I wish I could claim I made this amazingly delicious sauce. It has just the right amount of seasonings and goodness packed in it’s perfectly shaped bottle. There’s also a lot that can be said about a simple, clean label on a bottle. It allows you to think for yourself. It doesn’t scream, “Hey! You…

Grilled Banana Pudding – Yes, I said grilled.

Now yes, I know, this sounds like an idea where I’ve gone bananas (hehe). But, I promise, it’s worth the try, and SUPER easy. Three ingredients, and man’s (or woman’s) best friend. No, we’re not using a dog to make this…it’s the grill. The epitome of Summer time. To me, there is nothing better than…

Oh for SUMMERTIME in the South!!!

No, I haven’t fallen and bumped my head.  I know, I know, I know…I never say things like that.  The redhead in me causes my skin to burn so easily, only to fade back to pale…no tan (unless you count the ever-merging freckles).  I am not the biggest fan of sweating (although, I have become more…
