Oh, How I Hate to Cook!

I have a confession to make.  Cooking is not one of my favorite things to do.  In fact, I really kind of hate it.  OK, maybe hate is a bit strong.  I mean, it’s not as bad as scrubbing the shower floor or putting clean sheets back on the beds (raise your hand if you hate dealing with fitted sheets).  But those…

It's Christmas Eve, Don't Be A Wal-Mart Person

Shopping last minute has it's downside. Last minute shopping at Wal-Mart is just plain horrific.  This is my story about December 23rd at a local Wal-Mart. I saw shoplifting, child abuse, butt cracks...

Christmas Breakfast Tradition: Monkey Bread

I love that our little family now has a few traditions throughout the year and this is one of them!  Monkey Bread.  I only make it one time a year; on Christmas morning and this year I am especially excited for it (probably bc I’m pregnant and have been craaaaving it since December 1st!)

Monkey Bread is prepared on Christmas Eve and left sitting out on the counter until morning.  Then, all you have to do when you wake is pop it in the oven, set a timer, and voila!  20 minutes…

beet soup (otherwise known as borscht)

as a wife to a polish man, i’m quite familiar with this traditional eastern european staple.

it’s a soup made of beets. yes, you read correctly–beets. i remember the first time i was introduced to it. i thought it was strange yet very interesting. in my hispanic culture, beets are eaten on their own with a vinaigrette dressing or sometimes incorporated into potato salads. then i tasted this, and i instantly fell in love. my…

The Diet du Jour: Dukan

The Succulent Wife’s note: We are always wary of the latest diet fad and never pay much attention, but friends and family members seem to be raving about this particular diet. Really. Firsthand accounts. So we decided to take a closer – and scientific – look by asking our very own Dr. T to weigh on the merit of Dukan’s approach. Seems valid but, of course,…

Please to Meet Myself

Raised to believe that a man needed to look after a woman and that, as her mother used to tell her, ‘single women have no status’, Philippa Sklaar felt that any man was better than no man. If a man looked after her, she owed him. So, for financial security and, admittedly, her relationship addiction, Philippa tolerated abuse, became whoever her husband wanted her to be and lost herself along the way. Her book,…

Save Money and Time with these Cooking and Storing Tips!

I grew up in a household where meals were prepared daily, well, except for Taco Fridays, and the fridge was always stocked with fresh food.  There was however, one area of the fridge that was constantly neglected; the fruit and veggie tray (aka the “bottomless pit”). Sure, there was fresh produce on the top layer, but if you dug deep enough there was always a fruit or veggie or two lingering, transforming into mush, and growing fur.  And so, just as grocery shopping was done bi-weekly, so…

Giving birth to a baby turned me into a cook.

Cooking isn’t always one of my favorite things to do. I appreciate good food. I love fresh ingredients. New dishes are always fun to consume. What I haven’t always loved is the time it takes to do it well.

Fortunately, my husband never pressed the issue after we got married. He knew when he married me, he was marrying someone a little more focused on other things. But through the years, and watching him bring new spices in the room for me to smell, or getting excited over a new dish…

Mom-Zombies Wear Aprons

I have a lot of things in my house that serve no purpose.I have them simply because I can. They might have been a good bargain or a well intentioned gift, but they serve no purpose in my life. Bath loofahs are a good example. I probably have 10, am always acquiring more, but never-ever use them.

I can take little credit for the meals which are prepared in our house. My husband is chef. I am cooking-assistant (yes, that’s what he really calls me). I peel potatoes, chop onions, boil…

Christmas Cooking

My family has this HUGE Christmas Eve tradition.  We get together at my moms house for a Christmas glutton feast! That's the only time I get my mom's famous pot roast (a favorite).  The schedule's changed a bit over the years but it consists of church, family photos and tons and tons of food. This year was going to be a big one since all the babies were going to be there (sister's 2 boys, cousin's 2 girls, cousin's 1 boy, cousin's boy and girl).  We were the only ones not able to make…

Fluffy Pancakes (gluten & dairy-free!)



I’ve already mentioned that my food obsession extends from the kitchen to television and magazines. Thanks to the DVR I never miss an episode of Top Chef or The Next Iron Chef, and I love getting my Food Network, Clean Eating and Cooking Light magazines in the mail. I also often print off recipes from other blogs or the Food Network website, all of which I compile in my beloved…
