When my family asked me why I wanted to go back to school to get my Masters In Holistic Nutrition, I told them it’s because I’m sick of the food industry and I want to do something about it. Money is what got us into this mess, and money is going to get us out [...]

If you have never had Osso Buco then you are truly missing out on one of the yummiest dishes around! Osso Buco is Italian for “bone with a hole” which refers to the marrow hole at the center of the cross cut veal shank. This dish’s primary ingredient, veal shank, is common, relatively cheap and flavorful. [...]
Every once in a while when Vaughan goes shopping he comes home with some random food we usually don’t cook. This week it was large portabella mushrooms. Some of them I grilled and the others I decided to make breakfast out of. Store mushrooms in a paper bag inside a fridge. Never store in plastic [...]
Wow! I need to slow down for a while and catch my breath! It has been a fast and busy couple of weeks. I have been working on finalizing the Spring/Summer cocktail menu for Kapow and we have some seriously fascinating treats we will be showcasing on the menu. A couple include: “Lavender Lemondrop,” “Earth, [...]
If I could grow all my own food, cook every one of the meals I eat, and make all my own seasonings & flavorings, I would. But in the world I live in, that is just not possible. Secretly I really want to be Martha Stewart… But even Martha can’t do this all on her [...]
Totally not the tacos we think of with Mexican food. These babies were made in an effort to throw something together from the fridge without having to go grocery shopping. The seasoning really gives the meat a taco flavor without all of the additives of those seasoning packs. Vaughan scarfed them down and I [...]
Ok, I have to admit it… I have a pancake obsession! I’m not sure exactly why, but when I actually have time to make breakfast I always seem to want to make pancakes. Maybe because they’re a childhood treat that seems to take me back, or maybe it’s the simplicity of eating them with your [...]
After all the indulgences of the holidays, I had decided to go completely sugar free for one month. Starting after we finished off the last of the brownies my hubby made. I gave up ALL sugar, to include fruit as well. I made it about 2 weeks, when I came across organic blueberries on sale [...]
Shepherd’s pie, also known as cottage pie, is typically made with a crust of mashed potatoes and sprinkling of cheese. The term cottage pie is known to have been in use in 1791,when the potato was being introduced as an edible crop affordable for the poor (“cottage” meaning a modest dwelling for rural workers). Substituting mashed cauliflower for [...]
The old fashioned cocktail came about in the 1880′s. Although, similar versions made of bitters, sugar, spirits, and water are dated back to the early 1800′s. It was typically a morning “hair of the dog” type of cocktail. There are a lot of versions of this time tried classic but I prefer to stay to [...]
