So, what does one do when there are three feet of snow outside, the roads are completely impassible, the cupboard is getting bare, and your bored kids are about to go crazy from watching too many back-to-back episodes of I Carly and Hannah Montana? Why, you make sugar hearts of course! The great thing about these sugar hearts is that they require only three or four ingredients that you probably already have in your pantry - sugar, water, food coloring and powdered egg whites (optional). To begin, mix two cups of granulated sugar with some food coloring of your choice. You can use liquid or powdered, but just be sure to mix it in very well.

Yesterday I had a desperate phone call from my very good friend, B. It was her boyfriend's birthday & she'd promised him a "cake he'd never forget". "Great!" I said. "What are you making?" After a little mumbling & footshuffling, she conceded that she is the worlds worst cook & the only things ever been able to make are my Slutty Brownies .
I have served Ziploc Omelettes now for the last 5 months...you can really vary the recipe, however, you can also take a thin slice apples, add brown sugar and cinnamon, and boil it until the apples are soft, and pour over ice cream..or eat as is..quick little treat to take camping...yes the top of the bags do seem to melt...if you spell ZIPLOCOMELETTE, you will notice the middle says LOCO ME, yes, for not using this way to cook eggs all the time... <p style="text-align:right;color:#A8A8A8"></p>
I was fortunate enough to happen upon this recipe for my great-grandmother Iny’s Prune Cake a few years ago. Written by her frail, small hands, the recipe’s simplicity appealed to me, and I rushed out to buy the ingredients and prepared it the same day. “ Marlboro Man will never eat this ,” I thought, as I mashed up the cooked prunes according to Iny’s instructions. Anything with the word “prune” in it, I reasoned, would be instantly marked off the list. Marlboro Man returned from working cattle a little while later and noticed the warm cake sitting on the kitchen counter.

When I moved to the midwest I was introduced to Crock Pot cooking. I had never even seen a slow cooker before and had no idea the range of foods that could be created in a plug-in cooking pot. Since then I have had everything from No-Peek-Chicken, Swedish Meatballs and Peach cobbler, done in one of these magic devices. When my husband was an art director Aveda they had “crock pot parties,” which meant everyone plugged in their slow cookers at their desks and made a dish to share. Brilliant! Maybe kids should bring crock pots to school and have healthy food cooking at their desks.

Mashed potatoes are one of my favorite things to eat on Thanksgiving, but this year since I am pregnant and on a really strict low carb diet (for my diabetes) real mashed potatoes are out (bummer). I recently started researching alternatives to some of my favorite dishes because there is NO way my plate will be without a big ole pile of mash potatoes. I came across this recipe that uses cauliflower instead of potatoes. Hmmm not a big cauliflower fan so I wasn't sure.
