I’m standing at the kitchen counter about to start dinner. I open the cabinet to round up the ingredients for this evening’s meal and I see it, that seemingly innocent white-lidded jar, beckoning my attention. I look away and continue gathering my supplies, but its call is too great to ignore. I remove the Nutella from the cabinet and slowly twist off…Continue

One of our favorite weeknight meals is Baked Ziti. My husband spent two years in Italy. He claims to know Italian food and has given it his stamp of approval. I'll take that.

Who here has never burned dinner? Show of hands, please? Great, no hands.
Has anyone ever misread a recipe and ended up with something not fit for man nor beast? Oh look, lots of hands there!
Have you ever forgot to take a crucial dinner ingredient out to thaw, or forgotten to pick it up at the store? Yes, I thought so.
Ever set your kitchen on fire, rendering your stove inoperable? No? Just me, then.
I've had all of those…Continue

The meal was "out of this world." That's why it was saved, presumably.
And indeed, it may have been heavenly in its original form, I'm sure; now? Not so much.
A science project, perhaps, a study in microbiology and the tenacity of bacteria. Mould is a very curious but fascinating thing, I'm embarrassed to admit.
Of what do I speak? Surely you know: the evil that lurks at the back of the fridge (contained in Tupperware, of course).…

“Every day is a fresh beginning, Every morn is the world made new”
Today I am took my kids and my mom with me to visit the eFoods Global warehouse in Salt Lake City Utah. We need to see where the food is made! I think visiting the headquarters is important. (My kids groaned that it would be boring!) Even though I have already heard that eFoods is made carefully without hydrogenated oils and is of fine quality, I would like to see for…
