Published on Tuesday, January 17, 2012 by Or is it?

Alton Brown's homemade peanut butter recipe says preparation time is only five minutes.  Oh really?! Once the peanuts w...

I Am Going To Adopt Jamie Oliver
Published on Tuesday, March 23, 2010 by I don’t have cable, so during the week my mother will tape a favorite show or two for us to watch on the weekends.  These usually include anything Anthony Bourdain, Anne Burrell and of course, Jamie Oliver.

The Joys of Tart Frozen Yogurt and Motherhood
Published on Friday, August 7, 2009 by Love yogurt?  Then come with me to Yo Mama.  Noooo, not YOUR MAMA, although that might be fun too.  I'm talking about "Yo Mama," a new frozen yogurt shop just down the street.

Peanut Butter & Company Dark Chocolate Dreams
Published on Sunday, March 15, 2009 by This peanut butter is EVIL.  EVIL I tell you.  And I've introduced it to others, who then call ME evil for giving them their first taste.  I am the serpent, showing you the apple.  Just one little taste.  It will be OK, honest.

I Tried a Cherimoya!  Sweet!
Published on Tuesday, March 3, 2009 by This week's adventure eating involved a strange little fruit called a cherimoya, or "custard apple."  Last weekend I found myself near a Harris Teeter with an hour on my hands before having to pick up my daughter.  In search of White Chocolate Peanut butter (yet to be found!), I began my trek through this eclectic grocery store.  That is where I found the cher...
