Good Morning Darlings,

I know Memorial Day has come and gone, but you know what? We still have an entire summer of cookouts ahead of us.

What does this have to do with anything?

Snack Bracket 2014

Good Morning Darlings!

It’s Grammy Day, and that means staying home and texting snarky fashion comments with Holly & John. We will whip up something fun to munch while watching, but it is not our biggest food day of the year.

What’s the biggest food day, you ask?

Picnic Musings

Good Morning Darlings!

It is almost time for the 2012 Summer Olympics, when all eyes will be on London.

There’s something about nibbling treats while watching the planet’s greatest athletes that puts me in a festive mood. But you all know I have been super busy, and have no time to prepare a fabulous spread for my friends.

Whatever shall I do?

Good Morning Darlings!

Eric and I bought a Flip camera a few weeks ago with the hopes of making some fun videos.

Cooking videos, you naughty children!! lol

I would like to share our first offering. Chef Jeffrey Gardner of South City Kitchen and Food Network’s Chopped, came by to teach me how to cook in a tajine. The tajine was sent to me by our friends at Beka.

And now, without further adieu…

FFF-Oscar Worthy Cocktails

Friday, February 25th, 2011

Good Morning Darlings!

My friend Kate in NYC has some great ideas for some award winning cocktails just in time for Oscar night this Sunday. How are you spending the evening? This is like the Super Bowl to me. I love everything about Oscar day – the preshow, the red carpet, the show. I’ll be watching, will you?

Will you be watching?

Take it away, Kate!
Time to make the cocktails! Come on in!

Ok, I’m all refreshed after taking the day after Super Bowl to tidy up and plan what I am going to do with the leftovers. I thought you might enjoy seeing how we celebrated.
