• My Most Used Pots & Pans

    For the past two weeks I have been part of several conversations about pots, pans and dutch ovens. Specifically, what the best ones are and what I use and love. Another friend asked me again this morning and I figured it was time for a blog post! I think it is the time of year. We are all getting ready to cook feasts for the holidays and maybe hibernate for Winter and crack open some of those cookbooks. The truth is you don’t need that many pots and pans to create amazing meals. You just need a few spectacular ones (note: not all need to be expensive!), four to be…

  • Sweet & Spicy Pecans

    Okay, is it just me or do the Holidays seem like a full on contact sport this year? So much to do and everyone is in a rush! I almost got slammed backing out of a parking spot today… It makes me want to hole up in my house watch Christmas movies and bake all things Christmas! These nuts fit nicely into that category!

Her latest cookbook made my November Favorites and My Holiday Wishlist!)…

  • Forty.

    Forty. Here it is. That number. But that’s all it is, a number. I can tell you I do not feel forty years old. Some days I still feel like I am eight and cooking in the kitchen with my mom, sixteen and soaking up lazy summers, somewhere in my twenties running around a city or lost in the blur of my thirties. Ah, the thirties really were a blur of babies and acclimating to suburbia. My thirties shifted. My easy existence vanished when I lost my brother at thirty eight. Forced changes. Thirty nine was a year of loss for me. The loss of my dear brother, loss of…
