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…Continue

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.…Continue

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…Continue

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…

This was inspired from a delightful woman I met at the grocery store the other day. She had a cart full of mangos. They looked beautiful!When I asked her what she was going to with all of the mangos she said she uses them in many recipes and especially loves to combine mangos with mint. She was right mangos and mint is perfect! We loved it.

Well, it’s been a long time coming but it seems that summer has finally decided to make an appearance. Among other things, that means BBQ season. For the purpose of this list, we assumed that you already have the essential tools (the tongs, the spatula, the basting brushes, the cleaning brush…). But what about some of these gadgets that merit an appearance at your next barbecue party. And, not that we mean to be stereotypical in the least,…

Technology has taken over my kitchen. I looked around my kitchen the other day and realized that I have more appliances than food. It happened rather gradually, a toaster here and a food processor there. Until WHAM-O; my kitchen has more buttons than NASA.
I mean seriously, is the Cuisinart 50000 really going to be any different than the GE food processor? Is the hand held stick blender going to make the soup for me? I have 8 different items with digital clocks and timers on them.…Continue

When I think of the term “fake and bake,” I think of artificial tanning. I’m all about fake tanning these days since last month I became the I’ve-got-skin-cancer-and-I’m-getting-a-chunk-of-my-back-cut-out-soon Sunscreen Queen. My fake tanning isn’t going so well. I suck at applying it evenly and my legs are looking a little streaked. But, it’s better than the real thing.
But, today’s post isn’t about artificial tanning. It is about an activity I suck at almost as bad as fake…Continue

As I promised, here we go with the first Italian recipe.
You ladies better follow step by step and let me know how it goes. Ok?
The main thing to learn is the concept of "soffritto".
The soffritto is the base of 80% of Italian recipes...so you better get it right since the first time!!

I have a LOAD of cookbooks. I love to cook, I think it is fun. Typically I find a few recipes in each cook book that I like and the others don't really interest me too much. Not so with Jamie's Food Revolution: Rediscover How to Cook Simple, Delicious, Affordable Meals .…Continue

When we moved to our new home eight months ago, I was worried. You see, our new home has no dishwasher. And I had kind of made a personal vow that I would never move to another home without a dishwasher again until all my kids had left the nest.
I love dishwashers. Matter of fact, if I had to put all my appliances in order (yes, odd, but something I've done while living without electricity in the rainforest), it would be like this:
1. Stove (Burners beat out all. Plain and…

I don't like having conflict with other moms. It's uncomfortable. It's awkward. It's juvenile. It's "Momflict."
But every now and then a girl has to speak up, right? So I did. And it was uncomfortable. And it was awkward. And it was just a weeee bit juvenile. It happened last week when my daughters were in the school play. Make that the school "production." Yes, production is a better word because by the way the director and posse of mom volunteers carried on with their headsets…
