It’s almost May, but based on how slowly it’s been warming up in Wisconsin, you wouldn’t really know it. I was fortunate enough to go on a trip to Mexico earlier in the month, and the fresh fruit and warm tropical weather inspired me to make a recipe based on piña coladas. With a little […]
It’s spring! Well, it might not seem like it, but it is officially the Vernal Equinox. Soon all this dreary grey snow will fully melt away and we will be surrounded by greenery and singing birds. What a beautiful thought.
It’s hard to know where to start when talking about a book like Cooked, a work that encompasses so many different topics and took me almost a year to read from start to finish. Don’t get me wrong, it was the opposite of boring or cumbersome, but there were so many plans I had laid […]
