How To: The Perfect Turkey

perfect-turkey-coffee-rubbed

My Mom never taught me how to make a turkey. Did yours? Despite the fact that every year in my existence she’s made turkey for Thanksgiving, I was never shown how.  Maybe I never asked, maybe I never cared, maybe she was so busy prepping a meal for 50 that showing a child the tricks […]

I’ve been gone a lot lately.  Here, there, everywhere. But a few weeks ago, I boarded the Caribbean Princess for a five night Western Caribbean sailing to Cozumel and Grand Cayman. I was in for a wonderful treat. I’ll delve into more of the highlights in additional posts, but I wanted to give you a […]

Looking for the perfect way to change up a weeknight meal? Apple Cranberry Chicken Orzo is it.  Easy, flavorful, and such great texture.  I absolutely adore it.  But before I delve into the recipe, let’s talk a little about the season, shall we? The air is brisker, the nights are longer, the leaves are almost […]

Bacon Cheeseburger Deviled Eggs

I have been on a deviled egg tare as of late…I seriously can’t get enough of them. For one thing, they are very carb friendly, and considering my new, weirdo diet, no carbs is a great thing for me.  Deviled Eggs have made my life tasty enough to manage through the weeks with no sugar, […]

I feel kind of special here today. Reynolds – you know – Reynolds, the people who make aluminum foil and such and have access to big foodie brains and labs and professional culinary geniuses – asked ME to make a recipe for them. And a video.  To put on Epicurious. THE Epicurious. Gasp. I’m pretty […]

Gluten Free Tropical Blueberry Cake

I don’t live a gluten free lifestyle.  In fact, I am sad for people who have to.  I love bread. I love cake.  I love pastries.  Most of all, I love not having to worry about whether or not what I am eating will hurt me, because it contains something my body can’t tolerate. That […]

Cream Cheese Brownie Buttercream

No joke. Cream Cheese Brownie Buttercream. To me, one of the very best brownies is a cream cheese brownie.  Fudgy and tangy and sweet and…not on my diet but, well, maybe it’s on yours.  I also love my version of homemade buttercream, which is made mostly of butter, and umm, cream.  Sugar, butter, cream. So…I […]

S’mores Brownies…and a Giveaway

I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again…it’s football season.  That means tailgating. Now, I don’t know about you, but I swear, if you leave a tailgate menu up to a group of men, you’ll have 47 pounds of meat, and it if you’re lucky? Chips. Maybe.  No fruit, no pasta salad, no mac […]

Imagine opening your email one day, and having JIF, the Peanut Butter gurus, as YOU to make their peanut butter cookie recipe. Because they think it’s the best, and they just kind of want YOUR opinion. Because they think you matter, (How did they get my email address, I wondered? Who am I?) I blinked […]
