Chocolate Pudding

Chocolate Pudding

It has been a busy time lately! I’ve been moving, unpacking, getting a new house organized and of course, working so I can still keep my job throughout it all. Before the big move, there was a lot of takeout going on, as we used up all our food and didn’t want to buy more just […]

How to Make Perfect French Toast

French Toast

French toast is something that seems pretty easy, doesn’t it? I mean, you take some bread, let it go for a swim in milk and eggs, and then fry it up in a boatload of butter. But, if you want to get French toast that you’ll be thinking about for the rest of the day, there […]

The Perfect Mashed Potatoes to Solve Your Lumpy, Gluey Problems

Mashed Potatoes

I’ve been asked a few times how to get the perfect mashed potatoes. They seem like such simple things, but perhaps they’re the reason Julia Child once said that “Potatoes are the most neurotic vegetable; you never know what they’re going to do.” After all, a simple thing like boiling potatoes and mashing them up should result […]
