Holidays With Sullivan’s Steakhouse

We’ve all done the rushing around.  The crazy amounts of preparing the perfect gifts.  Wrapping the presents just so with bows and ribbons.  Stocked up on butter and flour and sugar, or is that just me?  Anyway you describe it, you have worked hard for your holiday to be flawless.   So, of course you […]

Culinary Fight Club During Baking Week

As you may have guessed, we’ve been busy.  This time it’s not all work.  However, baking week is upon us.  Yesterday was our first full day of baking in preparations for the holidays!  Before I forget I wanted to tell you that Culinary Fight Club is tomorrow night!  My job still requires that I share […]

Cooking At Macy’s State Street

This post is sponsored by Everywhere Agency on behalf of Macy’s; however, all thoughts and opinions expressed are my own. As you know, we love to cook.  Part of the perks of being a food blogger is getting to meet great chefs.  In and out of their restaurants, chefs have a wide range of skills. […]

Celebrate The Holidays With Macy’s Believe Day!

This post is sponsored by Everywhere Agency on behalf of Macy’s; however, all thoughts and opinions expressed are my own. There are certain aspects of living near a big city that we love.  There are always great outings to be had in Chicago.  So, I am pleased to tell you that Macy’s is celebrating Believe […]

Bake Your Heart Out

This will come as a surprise but I am not allowed to cook.  Yes, those words went together in that order.  My family refuses to let me cater everything at our holiday gatherings.  Even though this is my job to cook delicious foods, the ban hammer came down on me years ago.  So, instead we bake […]

How Do You Cook With Books?

Books have always been an extremely central part of our life.  My dad used to buy books only available in Europe when he traveled and as you know Alison was a librarian for many, many years.  When we moved from Louisville to Seattle, we moved about 50,000 pounds of books and that was after we […]

NYC New York Color Lip Gloss

So Influenster also sent some NYC Nude York City lip gloss in my holiday voxbox.  I was skeptical that I’d like it because I remember when I used to have NYC (http://www.newyorkcolor.com) products when I was a teenager.  And it was because they were cheap.  All my friends used it too for the same reason.  […]

Influenster Holiday Voxbox is here!!

So my Influenster holiday voxbox showed up this afternoon.  I quite like the things I got in my voxbox.  I hope the video isn’t too bad.  And this is my very first time doing a video.  As you can hear Rosie Dickens almost made an appearance.  Almost…she was right next to me, but my sister […]

Torani Syrups

  So I was lucky enough to be sent some bottles of Torani syrup for the holidays.  And since coffee is a staple in this household, it was the perfect thing.    As you can see they sent 2 huge bottles of hazelnut and gingerbread.  Everyone here is in drink heaven.  They also sent me […]
