Fast Food Fix

Although sometimes dedicated home cooks don’t always like to admit it, there is often a reason that popular fast food dishes are popular: they taste good. And I don’t just mean burgers, either. Fast foods include all kinds of quick service foods, like a slice from your favorite pizzeria or a muffin from a favorite coffee shop (although I will admit that food that falls ... Read More »

I recently pointed out the merits of selecting chocolate ice cream as a pairing, but the fact is that once you start to branch out, there is a while world of ice cream that you can choose from.

The I Hate To Cook Book

I Hate to Cook Book

Some women, it is said, like to cook. This book is not for them. This is how The I Hate To Cook Book starts out.

Allergy-Free Desserts

Food allergies can range in intensity from mildly annoying to deadly serious. They can force strict limits on what an allergy sufferer can, and cannot cook – which is especially tough if you’re used to whipping up a favorite batch of peanut butter cookies before your child is diagnosed with a peanut allergy, or you’re diagnosed with a wheat allergy.
