December Roundup

It’s been a busy, busy, busy month for me, and before it ended, I just wanted to take a few minutes to round up everything that caught my eye in the blogosphere this month for posterity. I’ll be returning to the normal Friday roundup format next week. Weekly events will now be replaced by a […]

Italian Wedding Soup

For some reason, I’ve been craving soup and stew lately. Probably has to do with the weather – it’s been unseasonably warm, and soups and stew remind me of winter. Since we were about as far from a White Christmas as we could get, I guess I had to eat SOMETHING that reminded me of […]

Holiday Update

Well, Christmas has come and gone – and with the passing of Christmas has come the return of calm in my household. Even under the best case scenario, December is extremely chaotic and stressful here, but with our trip to New York, this year it was even more so. We tried something new this year […]

Blogging by Mail: Holiday Edition

In the middle of wrapping presents this afternoon, the doorbell rang. I was expecting it to be one of the many presents I ordered for others online this year, but was happily surprised to see that it was a Blogging By Mail package from Chrispy of Experimentation of Taste. Let me tell you, that box […]

An Apology

…for the lack of posts lately, but this month has been hectic, to say the very least. Between being in poor health myself, Christmas baking and shopping, getting the house into shape and an ill dog, I haven’t had much down time to be online lately. I read all other blogs via rss feeds, and […]

Macky Cheese

Sometimes, when you’re feeling under the weather, NOTHING really tastes good. You don’t even want to go near decent food, bland and comforting is the name of the game. And at those times, when you’re in the need of comfort, nothing hits the spot like macaroni and cheese right out of the box. Not just […]

Indian Cooking Night

Last night, I decided to try my hand at semi-homemade Indian. I’ve been craving Indian for a while, and had a korma kit I had picked up at World Market a little while back that I needed to use, so it seemed like a natural choice. I had originally planned to make this dish with […]

Pork Piccata and Italian Green Beans

I was in the mood for Chicken Scaloppini, but not in the mood for the calories that come with Chicken Scaloppini (this recipe, for example, calls for a pound of butter and has 2,114 calories and 126 grams of fat per serving!). So I figured I would compromise and start with a Cooking Light recipe […]

A Couple of Things

First, looks like almost everyone has a previous engagement on December 16th, with the upcoming holidays and all. I’m thinking of rescheduling the potluck to the 30th (after the holiday rush is over). Does this work better for everyone? Let me know. Second, it looks like Lisa, Rosie, I and another blogger got a mention […]
