The Sausage Guy

April 30, 2008

I went to my first Red Sox game last night with CK and his co-workers. No, not of the season. This was my first Fenway Park experience ever! Yes, I’ve lived here for three years now and I’d never been to a game. And boy did I live it up. I ate and drank everything […]

Grammy Eggs

April 23, 2008

My grandmother has chickens and they live a fabulous Disney-esq life full of table scraps, grain, and white bread complete with a fancy chicken coop and a big grassy area to run around in. In general these chickens probably have a quality of life similar to your pet cat. If you spend the night at […]

Limoncello Uncapped

April 21, 2008

After a long and involved process the Limoncello was finally sampled on Saturday.  Beforehand though I spent hours in the kitchen prepping dinner.   Unfortunately several glasses of wine into the evening it completely slipped my mind to take any actual shots of the cooked food.  No doubt, a common hazard of the “job.” In reality […]

Melissa Joan Hart portrayed a precocious teenager with a funky fashion sense and a suitably bizarre family.  And […]

Vegetable Cheddar Soup

April 16, 2008

When I lived in Portland all by my little old self after college I used to make this very soup in a hand me down pot that I acquired from my mom. Speaking of the old neighborhood, some crazy fool tried to burn it down last week. I’m trying to comfort myself with the fact that […]

Stop! Collaborate and Listen – And the Winners Are…

April 14, 2008

You guys asked such amazing questions!  Don’t be surprised if you all end up highlighted on “Ask Erin Cooks” in the very near future.  Unfortunately though I only have three Häagen-Dazs packages to give away.  So after conferring with a host of very impartial friends (thanks Meghan, Anna D, Anna K, Melissa, and CK) we’ve […]

Diva in the Kitchen

April 14, 2008

Hänni will mercilessly ridicule me for this, but my guilty pleasure Mariah Carey let the Oprah show take a look inside her refrigerator and this video made me positively giddy. Apparently Mariah keeps her body “touchable” by eating copious amounts of sliced strawberries and veggie soup. She also bans employees from keeping fatty foods in […]
