Did I share these Chocolate Covered Strawberries?

I have been very busy in the kitchen lately. This is not new. A food blogger is almost always caught with her arms full in the kitchen… stirring with one arm, chopping with another, and pushing a camera shutter with the third. Oh, wait… It takes a lot of organization and I suppose some spur […]

Have you ever had one of those days where nothing goes right and you can’t even imagine opening the refrigerator door to start preparing dinner? Have you ever gorged on frozen carboard pizza, cut into a greasy fast food burger, or finished off every last cookie in the house while brooding over a bad day? Have you ever […]

I think it is time! I am still working on being more mindful in the daily celebration of my meals, and what better way than to pay more attention to the seasons and the bounty of produce the one upon us now signals.

Some strange, but lovely and relatively talented cook has taken up residence in my kitchen. She feeds us good food. On Saturday, she served us fluffy pancakes, drizzled with a crimson triple berry sauce, warm maple syrup, and a dollop of butter melting down the sides. She made red wine braised short ribs, falling off the bone atop a pile of roasted garlic […]

Is it important to drink organic Cranberry Carrot Ginger Juice?

I was sick throughout the first week of 2012. But I still had to go grocery shoppping, and I went harboring in my heart grand plans for a hearty, chicken soup. I rolled into the produce section, with a sore throat, stuffy nose, and that dragging “I feel sick” fatigue, seeking out onions, carrots, celery, and […]
