Over Christmas, my motheri-in-law gave me her January 2009 edition of Fine Cooking magazine.  She told me she bought the magazine for only one recipe, the one on the back cover.  As I flipped through the pages, I saw many many recipes I wanted to try, but guess which one I tried first?  The one […]

Penny Answers: Biscuit Recipe

penny-in-pink2

On the Penny page, Mama Bear asked “I was craving biscuits tonight while making dinner (butter chicken over rice) and would love your best biscuit recipe, if you don’t mind sharing!” Well, Mama Bear, yesterday I posted these Cheesy Garlic Biscuits that are fantastic.  I made them just for you, in fact, so that I […]

Cheesy Garlic Biscuits (Does Red Lobster ring a bell?)

dsc_64181

Growing up, if my parents were to go to Red Lobster, it was a treat.  As a child, though, I would say “yuck!” because I couldn’t even stand the smell of seafood.  To this day, I’m still not the biggest fan of seafood, but I’m finding that it’s because I grew up in an area […]

My parents visited from Michigan this weekend to celebrate our Christmas.  They arrived New Years’ Day and were going to stay until today, but they ended up leaving last night because an ice storm was in the forecast for today in Michigan. The first morning they were here, I made some Monkey Bread with my […]

Penny Answers: Whipping Cream Cheese

penny-in-pink1

Hi Charles!  Thanks for the question.  Other readers – If you checked out my tab (titled Penny), you will see that Charles asked “I’d like to know your method for whipping cream cheese. Any additives? Milk? Cream?” It’s very quite simple, Charles, and I’ll be more than happy to answer!  Just a splash of milk […]

I’ve been so excited for this day to come.  Definitely meant to post this a little earlier today, but my family came in for a weekend visit so I was hustling to get ready for their arrival.  Now that they’re here, I told them I have to take a few minutes to write my post…because […]

A Toast to 2008

new_years_toast

As I read other food blogs’ year in review posts, I kept telling myself to stop and start mine or I’ll run out of time!  Of course, I do have almost 9 more hours until the clock turns and 2009 is here. Last year I gave you a list of my favorite recipes from the […]

Chicken Scaloppine with Saffron Cream Sauce

dsc_6112

This is another recipe I made from the book my sister bought me for Christmas, Giada’s Kitchen.  Ben and I both loved the flavor of the saffron and creamy sauce.  It was a light meal for us, which is always nice so that we didn’t (as we have grown to say) feel like ‘death’ afterwards.  […]
