Okay, chocolate probably had calories on holidays, even for moms, but I’m no doctor… Anyway, ClubsGalore wanted to sponsor […]

Adventures in Homemade Cheesemaking

As you may have read a few weeks ago, seeing all the cheesemaking projects on Pinterest made me want to try cheese-making on my own. So, I bought a cheesemaking kit from the New England Cheesemaking Company to try my hand at it. Now that I’ve done it a few times, let me tell you […]

Review: 30 Minute Mozzarella & Ricotta Kit

Thumbs Up: Torchbearer Honey Garlic Wing Sauce

Let me start off this review of Torchbearer Honey Garlic Wing Sauce by saying that I wasn’t contacted by Torchbearer or paid for this review. Heck, I didn’t even get a free sample: I paid for it with my own hard-earned dollars. But it was totally worth it. This is by far one of the […]

If you know me, you know how much I love Julia Child. She was a strong women when you had to be awfully brave to be a strong woman. She was fearless in the kitchen and in life. She was imperfect and loved every bit of her imperfect self. Julia Child died in 2004, but […]
