My Cup Overflows….

November 24, 2010

…with blessings for which I am most thankful. It’s not that I am not appreciative every day for the blessings in my life, it is the fact that I don’t always sit quietly and contemplate them or take the time to write them down. Life is a journey that moves all too quickly. For these […]

While I do not consider myself a baker per se, there are a few baking tools that I consider a must have in the kitchen. Silpat is a silicone mat that is used to create a non-stick surface in your baking sheet pans. It replaces the need for parchment paper or greasing your pans. I […]

A while back my youngest child went in search of some cookbooks to read, and he came to me asking to prepare one of the recipes he had discovered. Well who can turn down a request like that? We set aside a day to cook together. The day arrived and somehow we didn’t do it […]

Greetings From Sous Chef!

November 14, 2010

Sous Chef here! I know it’s been some time since I’ve written anything – college has its way of keeping me constantly busy. However, with Thanksgiving Day only 10 days away, food has been on my mind a lot. The Kitchenarian and I have talked over the phone about what we’ll be cooking for the […]

From the Recipe Box: Old Fashioned Buttermilk Pie

November 13, 2010

I have been married for 27 years and I have learned a lot about baking and cooking in general during those years.  I have moved away from a lot of my earlier recipes as my abilities and tastes have improved. Except for this pie. Early in my marriage I saw an ad on the back […]

From the Recipe Box: No-Crust Quiche

November 12, 2010

This is my new favorite recipe. I made it for the first time two weeks ago and I have made it several times since in different variations. The original recipe is one of Pam Anderson’s from her cookbook, The Perfect Recipe for Losing Weight and Eating Great. Pam Anderson taught a class several years ago […]
