  • For Pie Lover's Only!

    For Pie Lover's Only!

    I come from a family of unabashed pie lovers. A homemade pie was always preferred to cake for birthdays and such, and we never missed a strawberry-rhubarb, cherry, blueberry, or peach pie season. When the snap of fall came calling, Mom’s apple pie took center stage and was truly other-worldly, but so was she.

  • It's time you learn a new cooking technique, Sous Vide.

    It's time you learn a new cooking technique, Sous Vide.

    Don't let the strange name fool you. Sous Vide (pronounced sue-veed) translates as "under vacuum" in French. The beauty (and secret) of sous vide cooking is that you cook your food sealed in a heat proof bag or pouch that is then submersed in hot water and kept at the desired temperature. It 's a great method of cooking that you shouldn't overlook or be intimidated by, especially with the new sous vide cooking appliances available now.

  • Is A Vitamix Blender Worth The Investment?
    September 29, 2020 Frankie F.

    Is A Vitamix Blender Worth The Investment?

    Well, yes. While purchasing a Vitamix Blender will set you back a few hundred dollars, what it gives back in convenience and pure kitchen prowess is worth every single penny. Whether you can splurge right away or you have to save up to buy the Vitamix that fits your needs, you'll be glad you made the investment every time you use it. And, once you realize how versatile it is, you'll use it a lot.

    What makes a Vitamix a Vitamix?  While it can handle the common tasks associated with a blender's kitchen duties, Vitamix blenders can handle so much more. Power, along with the blade and jar design, plays a key role in the Vitamix blender's performance.

  • Mary Berry's Bakewell Tart

    Mary Berry's Bakewell Tart

    This recipe is perfect because one, I always have a few bags of fresh frozen blueberries on hand. Freezing fresh fruit in-season is a win-win all winter long! My stash of fresh frozen blueberries is the perfect antidote when fall has arrived, and I've already started counting the days till the next summer solstice. Their sweetness also works perfectly with the almond filling.

    Reason number two? Watching Mary Berry on old episodes of The Great British Baking Show never gets old.
