Kraut Rocks! Win a Prize Pack!

I have gotten away from writing about food here. I’m not sure why. I love food. I love talking about food. I like watching TV shows about food. I love eating food. I don’t even really mind grocery shopping. Today I want to talk about a food that you probably don’t spend too much time […]

Labor Pains

Last night I woke up at 3:33 am with what felt like labor pains. My stomach was cramping so badly that I was convinced that Vicky was having her baby. I reasoned that she and I had bonded so deeply when we roomed together at BlogHer that I could feel her labor pains. I don’t […]

They Call Me “The Mythbuster”

I just stood in my kitchen and watched a pot of water boil. I watched it happen. They say you can’t, but I can. Maybe you can’t, but I can. I CAN DO ANYTHING! You can’t stop me. It was amazing. (They don’t really call me The Myth Buster. They call me “The Boiler”.)

The Devil Wears a Green Sash

With three minutes to go in the third period of the Olympic gold medal men’s hockey game between Canada and the U.S.A. yesterday my doorbell rang. The game was 2 – 1 Canada at the time and it was so exciting that my husband and I were actually both standing in front of the television. […]

“Nothing tastes as good as skinny feels.”

Recently Kate Moss told interviewer Brid Costello that one of her mottoes is “Nothing tastes as good as skinny feels.” Nothing tastes as good as skinny feels.

It’s a Small World Wide Web After All

I’m not that great of a cook, but I like food. Gabe does most of the quality cooking in this joint, but I try to do at least half of the cooking. This is why I was on the internet trying to figure out how to hard boil an egg. I mean, yes, I know […]

Another SATGS PSA: What Can Salt Do For You?

Unless you are purposely going for that bloated look I would recommend not eating an entire bag of cheddar Chex Mix. All by yourself. In one sitting. *** In related news, I may need to get my engagement ring re-sized, but hopefully this is just a temporary situation due to extraordinary salt intake. *** I […]

Cheese Powder

That’s right. You heard me. I named my post cheese powder. What of it? I have a theory about cheese powder having addictive properties akin to heroin. You think I am crazy. I give you the following examples: Cheetohs Doritos Ritz Toasted Chips, Dairyland Cheddar Flavor Planters Cheez Blass (their spelling, not mine) I challenge […]

Now What am I Supposed to Eat?

I have eaten every single Milk Dud in the house. We had far less trick or treaters than we were expecting and we had lots of left over candy. Now what the hell am I supposed to eat?
