CUTCO Carver – 9-inch Carving K...

[ sponsored post] One of the knives I was interested in trying as part of the work I’m doing with Cooking with CUTCO was one of the CUTCO Carvers. Carving knives, especially at Christmas, have a special place in my heart. We used to go to my grandparent’s house for Xmas and my grandmother would present a perfectly roasted turkey [...]

HoHoTO on Thursday!

HoHoTO 2013
HoHoTO in 2 days on Dec 19th!?!? Really?  HoHoTO is always one of the best parties in town, and this year will be no exception but it has come on so fast.

CUTCO Super Shears

CUTCO Super Shears sponsored post As part of the work I’m doing with Cooking with CUTCO, they sent me a couple of their products to try out, and I was overjoyed when I saw the box contained CUTCO Super Shears.

Chef Chris McDonald’s Anticuchos

Chef Chris McDonald’s Anticuchos
Anticuchos are a Peruvian street food, grilled hot and fast, served with boiled potatoes, salad and corn,  and made from beef heart.

In fairness, it’s always pretty but the dusting of or piling of, fresh clean white snow makes everything look like it has been painstakingly crafted for a holiday special. But it’s not that commercial, it& [...]
