A few weeks ago, I shared with you one of my favorite treats from the State Fair of Texas , Deep Fried Cookie Dough , well here is another of my favorite fair foods… As you can probably guess from the title and the picture it is funnel cake!

A classic Yorkshire Pudding is quick, easy to make and with this, my best Yorkshire Pudding recipe, guarantees success every time.

Got butterbeer? Harry Potter fans are all abuzz about butterbeer, and they've got the foamy mustaches to prove it. The cold and creamy, frothy drink is the most popular food item at the new Wizarding World of Harry Potter at Universal Orlando, according to Universal spokesman Tom Schroder, with visitors lining up to try it. "Then they would walk around and have this mustache on," said Sabrina Sampson, 11, of Richmond, Va., who described the drink as tasting "like cream soda. It was somewhat thick, and it was really sweet, and then it got salty as you swallowed it, like butterscotch."
My contribution to Drink Week 2012 (an event I organized!), a batch of Blueberry Ginger Shrub, is embarrassingly tardy. However, since I regularly operate under the principle that late is better than nothing at all, here’s my concoction. I’ve been smitten with shrubs since I made my first one last summer. Shrubs are a combination of fruit, sugar and vinegar. Left to sit for a few days (or even longer), they develop a deep, sweet-tart flavor that I’ve come to crave.

Good morning! This weekend is our Canadian Thanksgiving, which seems strange to me after the weekend madness, but I am just happy that I am not the one preparing the entire meal this time. ;) I have been thinking of something that I could bring for my in-laws that would make a fun Thanksgiving hostess gift. I didn’t feel like bringing cookies, pie, or something of that nature, so I put my thinking cap on and surfed the web for ideas. And then it hit me like a ton of bricks pumpkins. Happy Thanksgiving Homemade Pumpkin Butter

The morning cup of coffee has an exhilaration about it which the cheering influence of the afternoon or evening cup of tea cannot be expected to reproduce. ~Oliver Wendell Holmes, Sr I could have titled this post: How I'll save you approximately $1825.00 this year ( specifically for those who also attend The Church of Starbucks )

Oh, molasses. Most children today have no idea what it is. The Molasses Swamp has disappeared from the Candy Land board long ago. Molasses, in all its ooey gooey glory, is pretty tasty. I just wish it wasn’t such a pain to measure out!
