Oh Devil!

Oh, Devil! The deviled egg, in my opinion, is another one of those bastard dishes that gets a bad rap. The poor guy used to be so attractive, sexy, even. Often he was exotic and ladies just couldn’t live without him. And now, he’s the pot-bellied, balding uncle who drives an old, rusty Corvette, listening... Continue Reading →

Let’s Talk Tuna

What comes to mind when you hear the word "tuna?" Personally, I think it probably depends on your age. If you are in your 20’s, you may think of sushi right away, perhaps a nice piece of Nigiri. If you are in your 30’s and 40’s, chances are you think of tuna salad, either as... Continue Reading →

I happen to be a non meat-eater, but I... Continue Reading →

The French 75, Ooh La La

This delicious cocktail is literally heaven in a glass. Okay, well maybe not literally, but pretty friggin close. I recently had a French themed dinner party, for which I chose the French 75 as our aperitif. Of course since I can never be satisfied with a regular old recipe, I had to play with and...

I Love Bourbon

So I thought it would be nice to carve out a little cottage in a dark, dusty corner of the internet; a place for me to stack my recipes, throw down my cocktail concoctions, hang my photos, display some of my beloved vintage items from my vast collection, and pin notes about my favorite re-purposing...
