    [Tap, tap] Is this thing on?Well, I did it. A whole year. Not a single post in 2013. I didn’t mean to go a whole year without blogging, but once I started not blogging it was hard to stop not blogging. Wait, what? I think I’m a little rusty…Her...
  • Chipotle-Rosemary Sweet Potato Soup: An Ode to Bacon
    on Nov 29, 2012
    Oh, bacon…I love bacon. Always have; always will. And I don’t care if it’s “trendy” to love bacon, or if that trend is deemed “over” by famous chefs. If you ask me, adding bacon to something will most likely make it better. (I am tempte...

    on Aug 30, 2012
    When people recall memories from their childhood, they often involve baking in the kitchen with Mom. When I recall memories from my childhood, I have to say that baking with Mom is not one of the first things I think of. But here are some of the...
  • Coconut curry mussels and two years gone by
    on Aug 27, 2012
    It’s my anniversary! Well, not mine…This weekend marked the two-year anniversary of Tasty Trials and although I’ve only managed to get a handful of posts up this month, I have to say that I’m shocked to have gone two years at all with any kin...
  • S’mores martinis and indoor camping
    on Aug 20, 2012

  • Gazpacho and a mushy post
    on Aug 13, 2012
    When Andy and I first started dating, I made him a lot of lists. No, not honey do lists…lists of mushy stuff like things he did that I thought were cute, things he said I thought were cute, reasons why I liked him, etc. Is anyone gagging yet?Well,...
