Making salad dressing at home couldn’t be simpler; take a peek at this super short video (less than 2 minutes) for the Key-Lime Poppy Seed Dressing we made for this salad – the key lime compliments the yogurt nicely while balancing the sweetness of the beautiful summer fruit we’re all enjoying . . . berries, […]

You are in for a treat because July 7th was World Chocolate Day – who knew?   To celebrate, Debra and I tried to think of something chocolate to make and share with everyone.  But, I was torn.  I’ve been anxious to share a video that we shot last summer with head brewer Caleb Staton of […]

To say that my experience at Dole in Monterey last month was fun, energizing and informative would be an understatement; it was inspiring as well as life-changing . . . yes really . . .

We had the privilege to meet Krista Tevar of Sugar Cupcakery and her team this past summer when we asked if she’d be willing to chat with us about the very sweet life in a cupcake shop . . . I say that somewhat tongue-in-cheek because I know how hard Krista and her team work […]

This was one of the most fun things we did last year for our Thanksgiving meal but it took a bit of planning so that we had all the pieces ready when it was time to for the big day. Watch closely . . . it’s as if our table is set before your eyes […]

‘Skirtz and Johnston at 6 o’clock in the morning, set picturesquely in Cincinnati’s historic Findlay Market, is all gold and sweet scents. The pale peach walls resound with music as the bakers pull aromatic trays of pastries from racks, laying them out on white platters for displaying in the window. Some of them are sprinkled […]

Here’s my confession . . . I am not a baker.  I do not have the patience to mess with all those fancy little embellishments on itty-bitty cookies, cupcakes or the like.  Nor am I ever inclined to perfect my macaron (in fact, I’ve never even attempted to make one, let alone perfect my skill);  […]

I found Joe’s Butcher Shop and Fish Market about a year and a half ago and my menus have never been the same.  Indianapolis Monthly published an entire issue for food lovers (that’s me) on where to find all the good stuff Indianapolis has to offer – and there on page 63, was Joe’s; I […]
