Happy Fourth of July! Start it with Crepes!

July 4, 2019

I wish I could go back to childhood to see how much time (and my faulty memory) have altered what I think I recall clearly. My Fourth of July memories revolve around picnics at Brady’s Run Park, on slightly damp summer grass. The only food I remember is the Fourth of July birthday cake with tiny American flags on it because the Fourth was my mom’s birthday, and…

Addendum to the Chocolate Chip off

May 15, 2019

If you haven’t seen my recent posts on the Chocolate Chip Off, this post will make no sense whatsoever. I’ve been on a Chocolate Chip Cookie binge. I baked, then had people judge, but then came up with what, I think was the winner, after the fact. And late tallies changed my previous numbers. God! Nothing is ever easy! Well, it turns out the Pan Banging cookies weren’t…

The Chocolate Chip Off Part Deux

May 4, 2019

It’s 11:50 p.m. on Friday night, but I promised the results today, so technically, I’m still in under the wire! If I ever mention that I think it will be fun to bake four different kinds of cookies then bring them in for morning radio shows to test, someone please slap me, and lock me in my room, OK? I was up at 3 a.m. Thursday morning, baking…

Happy New Year! Start it with Delicious Man Food – Pork and Sauerkraut!

January 1, 2019

Today, like every New Year’s Day for years, I am making Pork and Sauerkraut for luck. It’s a Pittsburgh tradition and is man food at its finest. Not hard to make, ridiculously good, and includes beer. Men love it. Women do too…especially when paired with creamy mashed red potatoes. And it’s good all winter long because it’s hearty (especially if you’re back east where winters make your nose…

Christmas is a Friggin Exhausting, Happy/ Sad Affair – You’ll Need the Best Lemon Cheesecake Squares.

December 23, 2018

Christmas thoughtfulness IS friggin’ exhausting! After writing like crazy for the past three weeks to make sure all my commercials were done at work, I leaped into frantic home decorating mode, then shopping mode, then wrapping mode, then cookie mode, then elf delivery mode. And now with about 12 cookies left and people I still want to gift, this elf is beat! But I ended up baking with…
