The Great Wings Book

Last week Scott came home from work with gifts for me, Emma, and Caine. Emma got a Princess indoor/outdoor tent, Caine got a Star Wars book, and I got this cookbook all about chicken wings. I love it. I happen to make awesome wings. The whole family says so. Someday I have plans for my chicken wings but that's for another post altogether. The Great Wings Book by Hugh Carpenter and Teri Sandison has a ...

4-Hour Chef By Timothy Ferris

I most probably don't need another cookbook because I already have a lot of those sitting in my baker's rack but I'm always open to buying a new one that I think is interesting enough and will teach me new recipes and tricks in the kitchen. I saw this 4-Hour Chef book from Tim Ferriss blog and it sure caught my attention. 4-Hour Chef could actually be the 2nd installment of Tim Ferriss' book ...

I Watch Too Much Cooking Shows

The amount of food and cooking shows I watch on TV would probably make anyone who doesn't spend 5 minutes in the kitchen cringe. In my defense, these cooking shows are on while I'm working (hehe). FoodTV network would seem like it's on 24 hours a day. Not at all. I still have Soaps On ABC to watch during the day :) . Without having to painstakingly explain my food and cooking shows obsession, let ...

Spicy Apricot Glazed Pork Loin Chops

In the September issue of Martha Stewart's Everyday Food magazine, there's a recipe for spicy apricot glazed chicken boneless breast. I didn't want to eat chicken but I wanted to make it so I decided to use pork chops instead. Yes, it's perfectly fine to change the meat whenever you feel like it. There's no law against it at all. :) INGREDIENTS : 1/4 CUP APRICOT JAM 1/4 TSP ...

ANOTHER CUPCAKES BOOK

The truth is, I really don't need another cookbook, let alone a cupcakes cookbook since making cupcakes is not rocket science. to me anyway. But I saw how beautiful this Cupcakes recipe book from Books-A-Million last weekend and I just could not resist. The cover made me drool. If I could've licked those frosting off of the cover, I would have. Well, I'm sure I'll learn new cupcake recipes and frosting tips from ...
