Fall’s Best Soup

Confession: I’m not a big fan of soup. Specifically, I don’t think soup counts as a meal. As a first course, or with a serious sandwich or salad, maybe. But in general “soup for dinner” is a big rip-off. It’s like a n0-cheese egg white omelet, not really food.  However, there is one soup that … Continue reading

Smoked Trout Spread

Smoked Trout Spread

Prepare yourselves for yumminess. Today I’m going to share with you a great way to use one of my favorite local natural resources – Rainbow Trout. Of course, there are as many ways to prepare trout as there are cooks: broiled, grilled, steamed, pan-fried, stuffed, etc. I will happily eat each and every one of … Continue reading

Bacon – A Conspiracy and A Cookie

Bacon – A Conspiracy and A Cookie

Welcome back! I’m a little ashamed of today’s post. I’m not one to go in for trends, be they music, fashion, or food. I’m also not a huge fan of bacon. I like the flavor well enough, but the idea of eating strips of meat that are 70 % fat (or more) just doesn’t appeal … Continue reading

Shamrock Cupcakes for St. Patrick’s Day

Shamrock Cupcakes for St. Patrick’s Day

I had a brilliant idea yesterday. Shamrock cupcakes! Of course! St. Patrick’s Day is one of my favorite quasi-holidays, even though I’m more Scottish than Irish, and I can’t stand beer, even if it is green.

Welcome back, friends. Today’s topic is a soothing, relaxing bath soak that you can make yourself to use in your own bath or give away as a lovely gift. Bubble bath, bath salts, milk baths and the like are a huge subsection of the bath and beauty department at every store. They’re also disproportionately expensive, … Continue reading

Some fruit, a frog and a marshmallow walk into a blog…

Welcome, friends! Today we are going to talk about fruit. And frogs. And fluffy marshmallows. Aside from the alliteration, you’re probably wondering what those things have in common. Well, in the real world, not much, I’ll allow. But in the kitchen, they can come together to make something wonderful. Oh, alright, the frogs aren’t really … Continue reading

Grandpa’s Italian Meatballs

Grandpa’s Italian Meatballs

Greetings, Friends! Today’s topic is Italian Meatballs. Now, I have a confession to make. In all the mutt-like variety of my genetic and ethnic background, there is not even a bit of Italian. I have no pleasantly plump Nonna, nor do I have relatives back in the Old Country. I do, however, come from a … Continue reading
