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…

Building a Better Brownie

One way I’ve learned to get my kids excited about their adult relative’s birthdays is to get them excited about creating a healthy treat in honor of the event. The boy and girl have come to associate their father with peanut butter, their grandfather with chocolate chip cookies and their “Nana” with brownies. My parents came to visit from NJ today to celebrate my mother’s birthday, so of course the occasion called for some brownies.

If you’re looking for a good, straight-forward…

Who is Utokia?

My name is Utokia Langley. I come from a family of great cooks, none of them professional chefs but trust me some of the best flavors came from the kitchens in my family! Flavor has always been a priority with any meal, whether it was breakfast, lunch, dinner, dessert or just a snack. This is what I was raised on and what my taste…

Forget the Mixer - Just Get a Blender Bottle

When I was over for dinner at my friend Jill’s home, she used this great bottle called the Blender Bottle to make her salad dressing. Although it was a simple oil, vinegar, garlic, lemon juice and salt dressing, the Blender Bottle emulsified all the ingredients perfectly and made the salad dressing light and airy.…

Something I'm Good at - Making Baby Food

My babysitter always tells me that my daughter eats the GREENEST peas she's ever seen, and that makes me smile. They are green rather than brown because I make them rather than buying them in jars. It's so easy, I don't know why I would buy jarred baby food. Here's a step by step in case you need it:



First, for peas, I start with a bag of frozen. Here I'm using the steam in the bag variety; Makes for less dishes to clean. …

Mad About Melons

As I have mentioned numerous times, I have a rather large garden this summer.  Besides growing tomatoes, cucumbers, corn and basil, a quarter of my garden is being taken over by watermelon.  A small part of the watermelon patch was planned, but the rest is all due to volunteerism.

There are two varieties of watermelon in my patch, black diamonds, and the old fashioned striped variety…all with seeds.  I love watermelon and I frequently buy melons in the summer, but I don’t like the…

Adventures in Menu Planning

Recently, I was asked to think about the area in which I waste the most money. After much thought, I realized that the area of financial drain I struggle with the most isn't in buying too many shoes or buying a daily Starbucks (although I do love both new shoes and Starbucks). My area of waste is my kitchen. Specifically, my refrigerator.



I buy food I don't use, and it goes bad. Or, I don't have something planned for dinner, so I am more likely to fall into the temptation of…
