What do you think? Isn’t it amazing! A bit of a shocker, the new look, but I love it. For months now I’ve been working with Melissa, web designer (Fine Lime Designs), food blogger (Eyes Bigger Than My Stomach) and food photographer extraordinaire to give the blog a whole new look. Don’t get me wrong, […]
As most of you know, certainly those who stop by regularly know, I don’t do a lot of giveaways. In fact I’ve only done a few, I also don’t do many product reviews. I’m mostly about the recipes and ramblings, but every now and then there is something that you just love that, well, you […]
Last week we started off our anniversary run, leaving from Washington State and heading to Illinois. McGyver and I had been separated for a year, this was our first ride together after way too long.
It was a lovely day in February, unusual for this time of year, especially in Montana. It was overcast, but I think the clouds were acting more like a warm blanket, keeping us all cozy down here on earth. There was a touch of spring in the air; I cruised the backyard and noted that […]
If you’ve been following along you’ll remember that a couple of weeks ago, we bought ten lobster tails (since they were on sale at a price we just couldn’t resist). I made Lobster Verrines as our starter and Lobster Risotto as our side (which ended up being the star of the entire meal) and for […]
I’m continuing my revisit through my motorcycle journal, it started with our Honeymoon where we traveled for 10 days on McGyver’s 1998 Harley Davidson Super Glide. Fast forward a year and my journal takes us on our Anniversary Run.
For our February 14th Lobster Palooza I choose to make lobster risotto as our side. I’m telling you right now that this was the highlight of our entire meal! Initially I felt guarded about stirring up a treat like lobster into a pot full of creamy risotto and that’s my mother’s doing.
I was making some black bean soup in my amazing pressure cooker. The soup takes a total of one hour start to finish and no soaking the beans; the pressure cooker has basically changed my bean eating world. But I’m not posting about pressure cooker/bean love today, however when you have a pressure cooker to […]
Seriously, I have a cold that is just kicking my ass! It has sucked the life out of me. I have no energy, no will to do anything except hack my lungs out. I’m wheezing, snoting and coughing so bad that even the dogs won’t sleep with me. McGyver has relegated himself to the basement […]
No, I’m not having any holiday confusion. I know it’s St. Valentine’s Day but it is also The Daring Cooks challenge for this month…patties! Get it…Saint Valentine’s Day, Patties…heart shaped patty? The Daring Cooks’ February 2012 challenge was hosted by Audax & Lis and they chose to present Patties for their ease of construction, ingredients […]
