Happy Early Pi Day!

Happy Early Pi Day!

Happy early Pi Day! I thought about waiting until tomorrow, Pi Day , to talk about pie, but honestly, which is better? Making a pie on Pi Day, or making the pie the day before so you can eat it on Pi Day? I’d rather you […]

A 2018 #cook90 Recap

A 2018 #cook90 Recap

January has been over for five days now. I’ve basically congratulated myself by going out to eat a few times now. And I’m overdue for an update. Doing #cook90 was a fun challenge. It got me to meal plan, which I hadn’t really before. What […]

A Fourth 2018 #cook90 Update

A Fourth 2018 #cook90 Update

I’ve made my final #cook90 meal plan, and I’ve updated my meal list for January. Technically I only have to cook through Wednesday, but I’m in the groove so I went ahead and made it for the full week. Last week’s meal plan was fine. […]

A Third 2018 #cook90 Update

A Third 2018 #cook90 Update

The last week of cooking has been fine. I’ve updated what we ate here (and it’s also listed below), but here’s a link to what I’d planned to make. I had to adjust my entire meal plan because I was so busy on Monday. I’m glad […]

A Second 2018 #cook90 Update

A Second 2018 #cook90 Update

My second full #cook90 week went fine. Here’s my whole meal plan, which I’m updating as I go, and my previous week’s meal plan. And below is what I ended up making. What did I like about the last week? I made a few things that […]

A First 2018 #cook90 update

A First 2018 #cook90 update

The first week of #cook90 has gone well enough. I didn’t quite stick to my menu (which isn’t surprising to me), but I did make meals/eat leftovers as I was supposed to. I took my first day off on Sunday for lunch, because Alex was […]

A New Year’s Resolution

A New Year’s Resolution

Happy 2018! Are you as happy as I am to start a new year? I’ve often ended the year or began the year by writing about what I’ve accomplished or what I want to do in the next year. After all, this food blog began […]

It’s not too late for Guinness cupcakes!

It’s not too late for Guinness cupcakes!

I’m not celebrating St. Patrick’s Day today, but if I were going to at the last minute, I would definitely make my favorite chocolate cake in the whole world – Guinness Chocolate Cake. It’s very easy to make, and is incredibly rich and moist. The […]

Late-week update

Late-week update

I made soup for dinner and I made cookies tonight. I just can’t sit at the computer and blog about them right now. Tomorrow or over the weekend, you’ll have a review of Mexican Chicken-Hominy Soup and Mexican Hot-Chocolate Cookies… I didn’t even realize until […]

Plans for 2011

Plans for 2011

I always look forward to the beginning of the new year. I’m not actually a fan of New Year’s resolutions; most of the time they’re unattainable (although I was able to keep my 2010 resolution!), or you just can’t stick with them. I still make […]
