A Midwestern Meets Mediterranean Dinner Party

July 27, 2012

As I mentioned early in the week my projects in the kitchen have been a little pathetic this summer. So when family came into town I was determined to redeem myself. Thankfully, around the same time I received an invitation from McCormick Gourmet to participate in their Dinner Party Chain so the stars seemed perfectly aligned […]

Banana Split Cookies

November 23, 2011

I love taking something that’s already good and making it better.  There is something satisfying, for me, about looking at recipes as if they are always in beta, with things that can be tweaked or improved.  I’m notorious for rarely making a recipe the same way twice so I always feel like I’m experimenting and […]

Two Stratas

November 16, 2011

I’m kind of embarrassed that as of yesterday, I’ve been at my current company three months and haven’t yet mentioned how awesome my co-workers are.  Before I started my job I was fortunate enough to meet a few of them through a good friend who already worked there.  Because of this I had a hunch […]

Sunshine Calls for Good Cheese

May 11, 2011

Last week I blogged about one of the weird feelings that comes as a side effect of spending so much time in the blog community – produce-induced jealousy. Now it’s time to talk about another – no-cook-night guilt. By that I mean, on the nights when takeout seems more appealing than turning on the stove, […]

Tuna and Apple Tartare with Fresh Wasabi and Apple Chips

November 22, 2010

The first time I really took an interest in wasabi I was 23 and in Tokyo for the first (and sadly to date only) time. My days mostly consisted of wandering around the city’s various interesting neighborhoods, snapping photos and observing. Most of my afternoons were filled with blind exploration, but I did do the […]

Starbucks Natural Fusions Review and a Coffee-Banana Smoothie Recipe

September 21, 2010

I have a bit of a caffeine addiction.  I can be often seen heading into work, bleary eyed with a large Diet Coke from McDonalds (Yes, it is weird.  I only get the soda.  No food.  I think their machine mixes it best.) or an iced latte from Starbucks. So when the friendly folks at […]

Pineapple-Ginger Grilled Tofu with Edamame Salad

August 25, 2010

Whenever I travel where I’m going to eat is as important for me to figure out as what I’m going to do or see.  Business trips are no exception.  While to some they’re just a way to see clients and rack up some frequent flyer miles (Okay, I like that as well.) for me they’re […]

Zoku Quick Pop Maker Review & Recipes

August 16, 2010

Hi.  My name is Kelly and I am a kitchen gadgetaholic.  Whenever I find something new and novel for the kitchen I have to have it, even if it is a unitasker or largely impractical.  Some people are obsessed with cars or electronics or shoes (well, I like those too), but for me kitchen tools […]

Ruby Sensation Potato Pancakes with Apple-Bacon Chutney

July 23, 2010

It’s amazing to me how many of my current favorite foods and beverages I didn’t discover until adulthood.  Before college I’d never eaten Pad Thai and hadn’t yet discovered my love of tofu.  And if you’d asked me on my First Communion I’d have told you I’d NEVER like wine.  Boy how times – and […]
