A couple of weekends ago, Aaron and I met up with our dear friend Sunny, her two turbo-sprouting boys, and her sweet mom for lunch. I sat next to her mom, and while Aaron entertained the boys and Sunny skimmed the menu, I got the chance to really catch up with her. As we got […]

Weidner Turkey Burgers

A few years ago Aaron and I took a full 365 days off from eating pork and beef. A few of you out there are thinking, “niiiiiice you guuuuuys.” And the rest of you are having to use a car jack to lift your jaws from the ground. We made the decision mostly for environmental […]

A few minutes later he summons me to the living room to show me his […]

A Day With Matthew Collins

A week ago today I had the ultimate privilege of having one of Kansas City’s most talented photographers over for a day of food styling, food photography, and, well – food eating. Matthew Collins is good. He’s really good. And he was so patient with my constant yappings of, “Okay so what setting is that? […]

Shrimp and Corn Chowder with Bacon

Do you remember the moment in Twilight when Edward is showing Bella his glass bedroom for the first time? And they nervously exchange glances of brewing desire? Remember how DeBussy’s “Clair de lune” is playing softly in the background? Remember the slight brush against Bella’s arm before he led her into a gentle, sexy twirl? […]

Quick Spaghetti with a Fresh Tomato Sauce

Print Friendly

You guys, it’s so hot here that when I went outside to check on the garden this morning, at least 15 ripe tomatoes had their sad little viney hands reaching up to me, begging through tears to be picked and taken indoors to a cooler, safer world. One plant even had a little boombox busting […]
