Shopping brocci-lay

ight now, as I write this, I am pretty darn gruntled.

 

     We live pretty close to Brier Creek, and the Earth Fare (10341 Moncreiffe Road, Raleigh).  I love shopping there because they have all kinds of interesting items; lots of unusual produce, many different cheeses, and more organic products than I knew existed.

No fears for this Cordon Bleu from scratch

  Some things are much harder than you imagine.  So hard in fact, that if you knew in advance how difficult they would be, you’d probably pass.

Let cookies be cookies

The other night I had the Cooking Channel on.  Before or after commercials they’ll sometimes run a quick clip with a simple recipe, or a cooking tip.

Warm, gooey banana bread

So last week Petey and I had a couple of errands to run.  It was one of those really cold, windy, raw days.  The kind of day where you’d happily stay bundled up in bed sipping hot chocolate if you could.  But of course you can’t (or at least I can’t).
