Spicy additions to your holiday cheese board

November 21, 2012

With Thanksgiving less than 24 hours away I’m declaring the holiday entertaining season on! Though to be honest, I’ve been pinning ideas for holiday tablescapes, recipes and cocktails for weeks now. As a lover of all things fromage, it’s no surprise that a good cheeseboard is an essential for me when throwing holiday gatherings. And [...]

Random Holiday Musings and a Delicious Salami Giveaway

December 21, 2011

As a child, come December 21 focusing on schoolwork was impossible.  I’d long since created my wish list from the JCPenney catalogue and had been on my best behavior so as to ensure I would be in good graces with Santa Claus.  Sleeping through the night was practically impossible, the prolonged sugar high following school [...]

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, [...]

A few of my favorite things…

April 28, 2011

This year has brought new meaning to the phrase ‘April showers.’  There are only three days before April comes to a close and here in Chicago we’ve had 16 days of measurable rain, the most rainy days in Chicago since 1961. And when you consider that we had an additional three days of trace rain, it [...]

Fromage Friday: Dr-Cow Vegan Cream Cheese

November 26, 2010

Despite being an omnivore, I love vegan and vegetarian food.  Done well, tofu is easily among my favorite foods.  A good veggie burger, loaded with avocado and grilled onions hits the spot on a hot summer afternoon and Pad See Yew with vegetables with a glass of wine makes for perfect food for an evening [...]

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 [...]

Fromage Friday: Beyond Chevre, a Goat Cheese Tasting

August 31, 2010

It’s not technically Friday (although don’t we all wish it was), but it is the end of National Goat Cheese Month.    And before it’s officially over, I wanted to share with you all a tasting of goat cheeses.  Because when most people think of goat cheese they think of this… Fresh goat cheese or chevre.  Yes, [...]

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 [...]

Vermont Butter & Cheese Creamery’s Double-Cream Cremont

July 1, 2010

Since I won’t be attending the Vermont Cheesemakers Festival this month I’ve decided I’m going to have my own tastings at home so I can still sample some fantastic Vermont cheese.  I’m considering it my own homebound version of the festival if you will.  Those who are also unable to make the trek are more than welcome [...]
