Miss Mary’s Orzo Salad

June 17, 2008

For the most part, new Food Network hostess Mary Nolan has gone unnoticed and unheralded since her episodes began airing this summer. To be perfectly honest I mostly tune in because I really like her hair. Although, she absolutely freaked me out during the “Posh Picnic” episode when she repeatedly touched raw meat, followed by […]

Boloco Summer “Burrito” Knock-Off

June 6, 2008

My friend Melissa and I have a long running complaint about the state of walkable lunch spots near our office. While the hands down favorite is definitely Brown Sugar Cafe, a girl cannot survive on Masaman Curry alone (as much as we might like to). So for the most part I bring my lunch and […]

Review: Williams-Sonoma Circus Cookie Cutters

June 1, 2008

I’m an impulse shopper, especially when it comes to kitchen gadgets and products.  If you show me something pretty, shiny, or god forbid pink and it somehow relates to cooking than I absolutely have to possess it.  So when I got a new product email from Williams-Sonoma last week featuring animal crackers on parade and […]

Review: Rachel’s “Relax” Vanilla Chai Yogurt

May 29, 2008

CK brought this Rachel’s Yogurt home for me. Do you think he’s trying to tell me something? “Relax” you say? What’s that?! If it really did chill me out I’d buy a case. Maybe two. Sadly, this definitely didn’t do anything of the sort as it unfortunately had a very unpleasant almost chalky taste to […]

May 13, 2008

Fruity Cheerio Butterfly Treats

May 11, 2008

In some ways the above treats are reminiscent of a lot of gifts I’ve given my mother over the years on Mother’s Day.  I was always the kid in Sunday School who couldn’t get their Dixie cups packed with Marigold seeds to grow and I’d end up bringing home my mom a cup of dirt […]

Contessa Chicken Salad

February 17, 2008

Did you eat Miracle Whip when you were a kid? Because I did. A lot. I vividly recall having a conversation with my doctor at one point about what kind of sandwiches I liked to eat. My cute response of Miracle Whip and Cheese on White Bread really didn’t seem to impress him very much. […]

Ina Garten’s Apple Turnovers

December 29, 2007

Christmas just wouldn’t be Christmas without gifts to yourself and this year Chris skipped that cookie downing middle man, Old Saint Nick, entirely and treated himself to an amazing new Canon EOS 40D camera. Obviously I thoroughly benefit from this gift as well. Since picking up the camera a week ago we’ve shot practically everything […]
