Merrrrry Christmas! I hope you get everything you asked for from Santa Claus this year! I asked for a new coffee machine and a cruise to the Caribbean, which I know that I got because I bought them for myself. I’m my own Secret Santa.
This week’s quote reminds me of Christmas, because it involves one of my favorite holiday traditions: baking cookies! Hope you enjoy!
“Baking cookies is comforting, and cookies are the sweetest little bit of comfort food. They are very bite-sized and personal”
— Sandra Lee
Ho-ho-hope you have a Merry Christmas!
PS, if you have a moment, I’d appreciate it if you nominated Queen of the Food Age for “Best Local Interest Blog” for Best of Charleston 2017! If I win, I’ll bake all of my followers a dozen cookies!
Well it’s that glorious season where I stop pretending like I diet or exercise and just change into my sweatpants for the remainder of the year. Whilst my dad and I wage the great “stuffing vs dressing” debate for the 1,000th year in a row, enjoy this quote, inspired by what Thanksgiving means to me.
“Most of us have fond memories of food from our childhood. Whether it was our mom’s homemade lasagna or a memorable chocolate birthday cake, food has a way of transporting us back to the past.
TGIF! I’ll be attending Friendsgiving and making creamed spinach for the first time in my life. On Sunday, I’ll be traveling back to my homestead of Greenville, SC (#yeahTHATgreenville). So if you’re in G-Vegas for Thanksgiving, send me a message and let’s hang out!
This week’s quote comes from one of my personal heroes, Julia Child. Hope you all enjoy your weekend!
“In France, cooking is a serious art form and a national sport.”
— Julia Child
Hope you all enjoy your Halloweekends as much as we’re planning to!
This week’s quote comes from Ogden Nash and I think it’s a perfect representation of how I expect my weekend to go.
“Candy is dandy but liquor is quicker”
¿Por que no los dos?
I can’t believe it’s May already!
“A good cook is like a sorceress who dispenses happiness.”
I’m a sorceress who dirties 100 dishes for 1 meal.
So, I just realized that in the entire time I’ve been writing this blog, I’ve never quoted Oprah. That seems like a gross oversight on my part, so I’m going to fix that now.
“My idea of heaven is a great big baked potato and someone to share it with.”
Will you share your baked potato with me?
Things have been kind of crazy around here recently, so sorry for the delay! I’m working on getting back on track and back to regular postings soon. Let’s hope the universe supports me in that effort!
Anywho, here’s a quote:
“If you really want to make a friend, go to someone’s house and eat with him… the people who give you their food give you their heart.”
I hope you’re having a wonderful last-week-of-February. I, for one, could not be more excited about the new season of House of Cards coming out on Friday! I’m going to be enjoying it from the heart of the show, Washington DC! I’m so pumpedddd.
Also, congratulations to the winner of my recent “Kitchen Gadget Giveaway,” Jess Burns! Thanks to everyone who entered (there were over 150 entries!) and to everyone who took the time to vote for me for Best of Charleston!
Enjoy your week and this wonderful quote from Erma Bombeck who always keeps me laughing.
“I am not a glutton. I am an explorer of food.”
At least, that’s what I’m telling myself.
So. Yesterday was kind of a big fat giant deal for me. I closed on my first house!! I’m officially a homeowner! Yeah! So this week’s quote is short because I have about a million things I need to do.
I love all of you people!
“There are times when wisdom cannot be found in the chambers of parliament or the halls of academia but at the unpretentious setting of the kitchen table.”
And yes, that is my ACTUAL kitchen 🙂
So, it’s almost Valentine’s Day, and for some reason, I decided to try this whole “paleo” thing. No idea why. I think I’m brain damaged. I’m on day 3 and it’s actually going better than I expected it to. The only real issue I have to report is that I almost started crying when my boss brought in a cheeseburger and french fries for lunch. The smell alone…
But I digress. Here’s this week’s quote. It’s all about love and stuff. Enjoy!
“Love and sausage are alike. Can never have enough of either.”
— Trixie Koontz
Get your mind out of the gutter.
