Super Bowl Goat Cheese Balls

A number of weeks ago I was watching some mind numbing reality television in the form of Vanderpump Rules (I wasn’t really watching, I was listening), and one of the characters (I mean cast members) was raving about Sur’s goat cheese balls. Wait. What did she say? Goat cheese balls? There is such a thing? Being the cheese enthusiast that …

Mushroom and Black Truffle Oil Mac and Cheese

It’s no secret that I love cheese. I mean, people began buying me cheese for Christmas last year and this year the trend continued. This Christmas I actually received 17 wedges of it! You might say I have a wee bit of an addiction. But, if that is the worst thing a person is addicted to, that isn’t a bad …

Fontina and Mushroom Pizza with Black Truffle Oil

My mom and I took a little trip to World Market the other day. We always get sucked in to that store because of all the international goods. My favorite aisles are the food aisles of course, because they are fully loaded with goodies. This time, the treasure that I picked up was a bottle of Sabatino Tartufi Black Truffle Oil! I …

Happy Thanksgiving! Don’t Let Your Food Touch!

Rather than make the obligatory “Things I Am Thankful For” post (which might actually come tomorrow…haven’t decided), I thought I would post something simple and funny. Can you relate to the above graphic? I hate it when my foods touch. It is a small peeve of mine and I don’t really like seeing it on other’s plates either. But, to each …

Honey Baked Salmon Recipe for One

When I make food I always end up making way too much, even when I do cut the recipe in half. A easy meal to portion out is salmon. You can buy a large filet at the grocery store, take it home, and cut it into portions for freezing. That is what I ended up doing for this Honey Baked …

Shit From the Interweb: Youtube Food Tasters

I watch a lot of Youtube, or I try at least. Some of the videos I like are taste test videos where people from one part of the world taste foods from another part of the world, and you get to see the initial reactions of the Youtube Food Tasters! I would love to do something like this for fun …

Russian Borscht

Russian Borscht, a soup I have never tried. I had been thinking about making borscht for awhile. I had heard the name many years ago, and the word always intrigued me. What was in borscht? It sounded like a meaty soup to me. The heavy sound of the name made me think of that. Ha…was I ever wrong! When I was growing up …

Thai Nam Tok Beef

Wyoming. The home of vast ranches, robust longhorn cattle, the Big Horn Mountains, and really amazing Thai food. Wait…what? Thai food? Yes, Thai food. I admit I don’t know that there is an abundance of Thai eateries out there on the range, but sometimes when traveling, you just stumble on something completely unexpected. When my mom and I took a trip out to …

Reese’s In A Jar?!

The things food companies come up with! Reese’s wanted to go beyond their classic Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups once again, and have tried to make the candy into a spread. I haven’t tried this. I probably won’t. From what I have read, the texture of this spread is gritty like their signature peanut butter inside the cups. Reese’s used to be my …

Azure Standard Organic and Natural Food Haul

I am an amateur foodie…or maybe I am more like a food snob. There truly is nothing like a great tasting dish that satisfies the palate and makes a person sigh in contentment, let out a belch, and loosen the belt a notch! Okay, some people aren’t too keen on the belching part, but regardless, I think you know what …
