My Favorite Blender!
Today, because I’m back from my trip, because I slept until 6:30 am and it felt really nice, because the weather is getting cooler, and because I love ya, I’m giving away three (3) Blentec blenders, each with an extra blender pitcher to make life worth living on busy cooking days! I love this ...
Shells & Cheese (with Bacon & Peas)
Sometimes you feel like making macaroni and cheese that involves whipping up a roux, then making a white sauce, then adding cheese to make it a cheese sauce. And sometimes you don’t. This ultra-simple, kid-friendly recipe for pasta shells and cheese is absolutely scrumptious and so darn easy to ...
Chicken Quesadillas are absolutely a go-to recipe in our household, but while I’ve made them on my show (and have posted different variations of quesadillas here through the years), I just realized yesterday that I’ve never posted the recipe! I’m organized and on top of things like that. Here it
I made this Orange Chicken on my Food Network show a few weeks ago, and I just realized yesterday that I’d never shared the recipe here on my totes cray recipe blog. So yesterday, as I whipped some up for lunch, I took photos and documented the step-by-step process. For I am a foodblogger. And ...

My sister Betsy just left yesterday after a nice, long visit and while she was here, we did our share of cooking and eating. And cooking. And eating. And eating. The evening before she left, we were trying to figure out how to use a bunch of yellow cherry tomatoes Bets has picked from my garden. ...
Hamburger Hamlet’s Zucchini Zircles
Years and years ago, when my mom and kid sister (who was just twelve at the time; she’ll turn forty next month!) drove me out to Los Angeles to drop me off at college, one of the first restaurants we went to was a place called Hamburger Hamlet. It was delicious and while the restaurant offered a ...
