The Best Damn Bloody Mary Mix? Make It At Home!

Happy New Year! All through the blogosphere, writers are sharing how to be a better you and ideas for New Year’s Resolutions. Quit Smoking. Clean Eating. Exercising. Learning something new.

Perfect Pecan Pie

I love a pie. I especially love pecan pie (and for the record I say PEEcan, not puh-khan). Frankly too often pecan pie is really sugary and way too sweet. Soooo, I reworked an old recipe to reduce the sugary-ness and increase the flavor and each time I serve it, it’s a hit. With the…

On Cooking Indian Food

I LOVE every Asian cuisine I have ever tried. Korean is my least favorite so far, but I still love it. Right now I am obsessed with Indian food. I recently discovered (through a food diary and observation) that I have a sensitivity to wheat. I don’t have celiac and I am not gluten intolerant,…
