I have some really exciting news, folks. Set your TiVos to “awesome”, because I am going be on Anderson Cooper Live on Thursday, February 28th! Three competitors were chosen to face off in Anderson’s Chocolate Chip Cookie Challenge, where I will be force feeding Mr. Cooper cookie after cookie. It’ll be just like that episode of The Simpsons where Homer goes to hell for eating the Forbidden Doughnut, and they hook him up to that machine that feeds him a million doughnuts and he still asks for more. I hope that you will all watch as I embarrass myself on national television.
Once you make peanut butter at home, it will be very difficult to get excited about storebought peanut butter ever again. Not that eating peanut butter of any kind would ever be a chore because I love it so, but homemade peanut butter is a delicacy. And a nearly effortless delicacy at that. It’s akin to savoring a piece of high-end dark chocolate that’s rich and pure, uncomplicated by fillers, additives, or ingredients that have no place being in chocolate; and then grabbing a milk chocolate bar in the checkout line at the grocery store, which is likely a combination of tasteless, grainy, and waxy. Apples and oranges.

There are very few recipes here that I use the word perfect to describe. This dressing is truly worthy of the word perfect. I've tried numerous balsamic vinaigrette recipes over the past year and while they have been decent, they were not quite what I was searching for. I am thrilled to be sharing this recipe with you today. I served it last week to visiting family and those who tried it immediately requested the recipe. This dressing is so versatile, I've used it on salads, roasted vegetables, and drizzled it over chicken in a wrap.

I ‘ve always been a fan of Easter. Especially since developing a serious ‘appreciation’ for chocolate back when I was designing chocolate biscuits (cookies) for a living. But this Easter I’m more excited than usual. We have some friends coming to stay for the weekend and they’re bringing their 3 year old. So you know what that means… Yes!
Oh my goodness. You know when you have one of those desserts that completely knocks your socks off? This is it. And it’s simple, too. It’s like the new Holy Grail of treats!
Why order take out when you can make your own Chinese lemon chicken at home? There are a few different versions of lemon chicken out there, all coming from different countries. Probably the most popular type of lemon chicken would be baked in the oven. We all know baked lemon chicken is great but here is the Chinese version – just like take out or at the buffets. The Chinese version varies greatly from that of other cultures. Like most types of Chinese chicken the chicken is first cut into small chunks, battered, and then deep fried and covered with a sweet-lemon sauce.
Magically Delicious! Unicorns may manage their elusiveness but they left behind some fanciful evidence of their existence and I was able to recreate their leavings. This unicorn poop, in reality, has a funny story. I told my mom that I was making some "Unicorn Sneezes" and she said "when are you going to make your unicorn sh*t?"

I first posted this recipe for Chocolate Chip Cookies--our family favorite, by the way--back in September of 2008. The recipe hasn't changed, but I thought it was time to get a better picture in there! We have replaced our kitchen table, our camera, and our computer in the past 2.5 years, and I have to say I think my photography skills have improved more than a little!
i do not take the pictures on this blog. i simply love to share the amazing recipes and food photography i find around the internet. everything i post has a click-through link as well as a link below the picture to the original source. and, yes, that does mean the recipe 99% of the time! and why 'gastrogirl'? because if i could have one super power, it would be the ability to eat my way through life and around the world without ever having to stop. <p style="text-align:right;color:#A8A8A8"></p>
