Sophisticated S’mores

Yeah. I went there. Straight to the core of delicious-ness. I used to think I hit the jackpot of all things s’more when I replaced the Hershey Bar with a Reese’s Peanut Butter Cup. (If you haven’t tried that you should. Immediately.) But this is Justin Timberlake, bringing sexy back, in a private jet, packed with your…

Valentines Day Treats

You didn’t think I’d let a this Hallmark holiday go without any celebration, did you?? For tonight I’ve prepared: Bruschetta Bites Strawberry Poppyseed Salad Skewers Dark Chocolate Filled Raspberries Cheese Plate (I live in Wisconsin. This is necessary. With that said, I HIGHLY recommend blue cheese with a fig vinegar.) And I haven’t even pulled…

Thankful Thoughts & Caramelized Onions

Some things in life you just need to be thankful for. Like your sister surviving a serious accident. Her beautiful children saving her. For the amazing strength of my mother and for the laughs my younger sister and I never seem to tire of. For those of you who don’t know, last week, my sister…

Apple Cream Cheese Bars

Things you do at 31 you didn’t do at 21: 1. Drink wine. 2. Thouroughly enjoy a cheese themed pot luck. 3. Work. Oh the joys of growing up and GULP… becoming an adult. Yes, today is my birthday. The day normal people a day over 25 (or so) dread. However, due to the nature…

A few weekends ago, life handed me a rather large lemon and instead of making lemonade, I made a crab cocktail. And I super sized that #*$!h. No joke, I didn’t want to do anything. I didn’t even cook! So after a day and a half of acting like a child, I told myself no…

Worth the Work

I have no idea what came over me.  I was aimlessly browsing foodgawker one dreary day. I often search the site, not out of hunger but for inspiration. There are a few things in life I want to master.  Quiche.  Ceviche.  Beef Stock. Picatta. Risotto.  Scallops.  Alfredo. Alfredo has defeated me a handful of times. It…

Testing, Testing

I can upload a picture. Phew. I’ve read up a little in the last couple of weeks about blogs and I have come to three conclusions. 1. I’m going to need an English tutor. 2. I’m gonna need a new camera. 3. I’m gonna need to start cooking/baking more during the day. Sadly, the last…
