Bead Yarn & Spatula

I’ve had two frozen deep dish pie crusts in my freezer since a little before Thanksgiving. I purchased an extra pack just in case of a mishap while baking my pies for the holiday. Thankfully I didn’t need them. And then they sort of got buried in my freezer to make room for the frozen […]

Food Wednesday February 20, 2019   Before we get to food this week, we are first going to edge ever so close to controversy and talk just for a minute or, perhaps two, about irony since there seems to be so much of it of late.  There is also some related really good news, but […]

Sara's Favorite Recipes

My brother introduced me to this Paula Deen recipe and I just love it. It is hearty and easy and filling and perfect for a cold winter night. It also makes great leftovers. The recipe recommends using Paula Deen branded sauces, but I have had just a good results with Sweet Baby Ray’s and A-1. […]

Fretts on Film

It’s only fitting that Alita: Battle Angel opens atop a massive scrap heap: This clanking monstrosity is cobbled together from cast-off parts of better films. Here’s an A to Z guide of the movies it rips off. The Abyss/Titanic Co-writer/producer James Cameron not only channels his own soggy relics when Rosa Salazar’s titular cyborg dives deep […]

More than a month into the shiny new year, anyone who is in the business of needing to know can obtain a total data picture for 2018 – pages viewed, exercise hours spent, units sold. I am always keen to survey the cookbook realm, wondering whether the food media’s “best-of” lists reflect what the American […]

So I was starving. I realized I hadn’t eaten anything since this morning at about 5am. Had a country ham and cheese biscuit from the store that I audited this morning. We get there at 4, just as they are making their biscuits, and they are delicious then. Then they sit in the hotbox and […]

Mixing & Musing

With just two days until V-Day (that’s Valentine’s Day), I’m going to stray from my intended path of one-pot meals (I promise to get back to that shortly), and wander into the realm of really decadent desserts. If you want to melt your honey’s heart with something sweet, it’s time to get gooey — not […]

Finding AWay

What do you do with preserve recipes you try but don’t quite love? For the January Citrus Food In Jars Mastery Challenge I made Lemon Lavender Marmalade from Emma MacDonald’s book Artisan Preserving. It calls for both lavender buds to be added and essence of lavender. I love lavender but I did find this combination […]

All About the Grub

I know zero people who create their own recipes and blog about them later who get their recipes “right” the first time every time. Yes, yes, there are more magical moments than not, when you really impress yourself on the first go, and these moments increase over time as you learn new tricks of the […]
