Bacon Pistachio Mac n’ Cheese


Some of my favorite meals create the stickiest, most horrible baked-on concrete-like food residue. The thought of all that scrubbing post-meal…ugh. So I have to think long and hard about whether I really, really, really want that melted, gooey and cheesy dinner after all. And most of the time I still do! How can I […]

Are you using a dishcloth to clean your kitchen countertops? They look pretty fresh and lovely when you start wiping up the spills and messes, don’t they? But what happens after the clean-up session?

The after-disaster of all the cooking, baking, and eating in life stinks. There’s food to put away, spills to wipe up, dishes to wash, and for some strange reason everyone else in the house mysteriously disappears post-meal. Hmmmmmm.

One thing I never understood about my parents is why they didn’t buy batteries for holiday gifts in advance. Could there be anything more disappointing than opening a gift and not being able to play with it because it needs batteries and you don’t have any?!!! Get ‘em. Get lots of  ‘em. Actually now’s the […]
