No Recipe and No Goodbye

It’s amazing to me how a single moment, decision, or breath can change the course of not only your life, but every single person who loves you. How if one person doesn’t take the time to think about the repercussions of a seemingly simple decision, it can turn a friendship or a family upside down….

Portobello Heaven

I am about to say something I never say. I hit the jackpot on this sandwich. I mean, this is devine. The kind of taste combination that just leaves me stunned, silent, and blissfully happy with a euphoric smile slapped across my face. I’d be happy if I found this gem at a local dining…

I really don’t consider myself a pork schnitzel kind of girl. I consider myself an all-you-can-dip, overboard for seafood, bread-head kind of lady. When checking out the menu at one of the most delicious establishments in Madison, there are many possibilities considered prior to a pork schnitzel. However, during restaurant week your choices are limited. Sometimes you make rash decisions….

New Idea

In effort to blog more often, I am going to begin blogging daily about what I am cooking or where I am eating that day…. let’s see how it goes. Monday, February 28th, 2011 Breakfast – Coffee and my homemade peanut butter biscotti. (I used Joy the Baker’s recipe.) Lunch- Basic salad. Romaine lettuce, celery,…

Rookie Post

Here’s the deal… I am 30 and my life is flying by. I want to remember the little things and I want to share it with everyone. So here we go. I should let you know a few things about me. 1. I’m obsessed with food. 2. I’m obsessed with my dog, Skyd. 3. I’m…
