Basil. Garlic. Olive oil. Pine nuts. Parmesan. These are the makings of a fabulous, wonderful, delicious pesto — and believe me, I adore pesto.

It all started with the beautiful marble cake that Shawn bought for me. It had this delicious creamy frosting and was decorated with a […]

Creator Kalyn of Kalyn’s Kitchen has challenged bloggers to incorporate an herb and a veggie into a dish for this weekend’s roundup.

Shawn and I recently enjoyed an anniversary meal at Jim Barbarie’s in Danbury, Conn. Read about the food here. I have a Spice Stack in my kitchen and it’s solving a few storage problems (yay!). Read about it here. I’ve been trying to cut back on my fattening sweets – really I have. Read about […]

When Rachel from Food Maven (and Coconut & Lime) shot me an email about her one time event, What’s in Your Basket?, I was thrilled to join in. After all, it’s so much fun checking out what other people purchase. Okay, okay, so that probably makes me a shopping cart voyeur, or something of the […]

Valentine’s Day is fast approaching. The stores are already sporting their reds and pinks, hearts and cupids. Hell, they’ve been doing that since Dec. 26.

But as time has worn on, things have gotten progressively more difficult. Some weeks it’s downright impossible to narrow down onto on solid […]

The recent E. Coli breakout has restaurants operating scared, including here in Connecticut where several restaurants have eliminated the leafy green delight from menu items.
