Hello friends! Dude, getting back into blogging after a hiatus is rough. Seriously – you get all these ideas and you think “Oh I’ll make this, and these and OO some of those…” and then real life throws in a few required errands and family visits and poof! You’ve only made one recipe in a few […]
Hello friends! My oh my how this week has flown. Before we know it Halloween will be here, followed by Thanksgiving…and Christmas… … I really do my best to think about every holiday at all times not to jump ahead to the next holiday season, so today I thought I’d share with you a recipe […]
Hello friends! The cold has finally been conquered. I can now happily breathe deeply, which I am incredibly thankful for; not being able to smell this Beer Braised Chicken would be a major bummer.

Hello friends! I told you I’d be back with more bread! The cool, crisp mornings in NJ have left me in a baking frenzy. It’s just infinitely more fun to bake when doing so does not transport you to Dante’s Inferno. Instead, my apartment remains pleasantly warm and smelling of freshly baked beer bread. Beer […]
Hello friends! Well, I made it halfway into September before posting a pumpkin-related recipe. Aren’t you proud shocked appalled impatient impressed? I have to say it didn’t take a whole lot of effort on my part: the first week of September hit mid 90s here in NJ and it’s hard to imagine pumpkins and crisp, […]
Hello friends! For today’s Fear No Food post, I thought we’d get right down to the main event: homemade gnocchi.
