Any given Saturday I’m home the Food Network is on in my house. The consistent cook in me loves Giada, Ina, Claire, and all things Iron Chef. My husband knows if it’s Saturday, do not turn from the glory of Food Network in HD. I admit to owning a few of Food Network cooking items [...]

Feasting Pretty: Bacardi Dragonberry Strawberry Rum

Bacardi Dragonberry

Today marks the end of a 10-day detox. I have been working with a new doctor who practices naturopathy because I’m trying to work on a holistic routine to my wellness initiative. I’ve felt better than I have in months, but that doesn’t mean I didn’t miss my normal food cravings or libations. I can’t [...]

Feasting Pretty: Crios Torrontes Wine

Crios Torrontes

I was recently in Buenos Aires, Argentina where I tasted amazing wines, feasted on delicious food, and explored a city that I fell in love with several years ago. A discovery I made there was Crios Torrontes Wine. Most people think of Argentina and Malbec. It’s the country’s signature grape, but a crisp, flavorful, and [...]

Feasting Pretty: My Father’s Daughter Cookbook by Gwyneth Paltrow

My Father's Daughter

Gwyneth Paltrow gets a bad rap from many people so if you are not a fan I understand this post may not be for you.  When I first read that she was going to create a cookbook I knew I needed it in my kitchen repertoire.  I am still envious of her foodie road tour [...]

Feasting Pretty: The Container Store’s Recipe File Folders

Container Store Recipe File Folders

I love magazines.  As much as I think of myself a tech girl there is nothing like holding a printed cooking magazine.   I receive 5-6 cooking magazines a month.  I often rip out recipes just so I can have the photo. Needless to say my recipe binder needs updating and organizing. I was perusing [...]

Feasting Pretty: Olive Oil Tasting McEvoy Ranch

McEvoy Oil

I think of food in the same way I think of beauty.  It’s an obsession.  I should take a photo of my pantry, but it is totally in disarray.  I’m in the process of organizing all my spices which I collect when I travel.  The collection includes various peppers and salts, but now it’s olive [...]

Feasting Pretty: Around My French Table by Dorie Greenspan
