Taking a break.

I am going on hiatus for a short while. Things have just gotten a bit overwhelming in the last little bit. I promise to be back soon with more food posts than ever.
See you then!

Little Italy - Erie Street, Windsor ON.

Recently the Food Network published my article about Windsor's Little Italy. It was written over a year ago, and unfortunately a few restos in that area have closed down since then. I encourage Windsorites to support local eateries and Erie Street is a great area to begin!

Funniest food blog...ever

After going through a few websites at the beginning of this year, I was led to a blog called Cake Wrecks. People described it as "hilarious" and "one of the funniest blogs they had ever read". I was quite skeptical, figuring there was no way to make cake funny. I'm not into obvious jokes, and thought this may be amusing but I wouldn't come back to read the blog again.

I was wrong. I spend an hour one morning perusing Cake Wrecks and laughing my ass off. It is now in my favourites list. Please take a look for yourself, be sure to check out the "Fan Favourites".

Holiday Cooking ... And Eating.

I am stuffed, still. The sad part about having friends and family that are awesome cooks is that they make great food. And during the holidays these amazing dishes are at their peak. Who am I to turn down good eats?

Over the past two weeks my husband and I have crammed our faces full of great stuff at brunches, dinners and cocktail parties. Here are the menus:

Brunch for 6

Wild Mushroom Frittata

Dinner for 15

Green Salad

- we used a femily recipe but this one is not bad either

- I didn't use walnuts and I added a splash of red wine vinegar at the end

Cynthia's Corn Pie
- one of my favourite comfort foods

Honey Glazed Ham

A New Year's Cocktail Party for 15

Iceland- Icelandic Lemonade

Fish Balls with Dipping Sauce
- yummy, with crunchy panko crust

- will knock your socks off, but is gooood!

-best served warm and wrapped around the beef

-I used flank steak and sliced it instead

Newfoundland - Screech
- will clean out your pipes!

Nova Scotian Sausage

Chile - Pisco Eggnog
