A Taste of Anatolia-Nar Gourmet Products

I recently received a box of Nar Gourmet spices and olive oils in the mail, for review purposes; all opinions and ideas here are my own.

ShopHouse Asian Kitchen

Saturday afternoon couldn’t come fast enough; I had been invited up to Hollywood, to taste the menu at ShopHouse Asian Kitchen on Sunset Blvd.  For the record, my meal and all the tastings were provided by the restaurant; however, all opinions and photographs are my own.

Have you ever tried Applesauce Pie?

We have a lot of potlucks at work, and I have always been a designated dessert-bringer; especially after I developed this recipe for applesauce pie.  Friends and family have been after me to get it written down for them–so I finally did.

A few weeks ago, when I was in Las Vegas for Bloggy Boot Camp, I was also invited to a wonderful dinner party–courtesy of Mirassou Winery and David Mirassou.  I’m not a wine connoiseur by any stretch of the imagination, but I do enjoy a good glass of wine. As the date for Bloggy Boot […]

So you can only imagine my happiness at […]
