Halloween 2012 in Salem, MA

Ahoy! It's that time of year again. I honestly don't know where the time has gone. Most of you know that we live in beautiful Salem, Massachusetts. Salem is also known as Witch City, after...

How to Make Homemade Pie Crust

There are times when it's easier to use pre-made or frozen pie crust. Wait, what? Go on: Scold me if you want. When you've already been going for 12 hours by the time 6 pm rolls around, sometimes convenience wins. That said, when I do have the time, I definitely always make my own crust. Nothing compares.

Halloween 2011 in Salem

I just realized that I never got around to sharing all my Halloween photos with you guys. But, who says you can't have a little Halloween in December? After all, signs of All Hallows Eve are never far away, especially when you live in Salem, Massachusetts, a.k.a. Witch City. ;)

Bon Appetit Invited Us To New York!

This has officially been the craziest year of my life. Having survived thirty-some-odd years to date, I can say that with confidence, hands down. And it looks like we're going to end the year on a high note. Make that a sky-high note.

Apple Pie in a Glass

I'd like to introduce you to my new favorite milkshake. I can't take credit for this idea. It's my version of the Apple Cider Milkshake I had at the Ben & Jerry's in Salem the other day, while I was waiting for The Angry Chef to pick me up on a rainy day.
