The Culinary Arts College website has accumulated no less than 100 famous restaurant dishes that have been knocked off so we may enjoy them at home without the overhead. Nice! From P.F. Chang's Lettuce Wraps
Of course Farmer's Almanac would have the scoop on making our own condiments. What's very cool is we probably already have on hand all we need to make them. Make them as sweet, tangy or spicy as you like and all
Make some gigantic pom poms for decorations and these five tasty dishes and you'd have yourself the beginnings of a perfect pom pom-themed tasting party.
The creator of our first recipe (pictured above) calls them 'balls', but for the purpose of this post, we're going to refer to them as pom poms, because, they HAD to be included in our menu. Seriously, Cheesy Roasted Garlic Pom Poms made with Gruyere cheese?! *sigh*
Yesterday I had a great idea for today's installment of Foodie Friday: a roundup of recipes using Oreo cookies. Little did I know that Nabisco has that pretty much covered. From beverages to pies to candies and everything in between, you can find dozens and dozens of recipes on their website featuring that quintessential black and white sandwich cookie.

I'm sort of a cocktail aficionado...in that I have a fully-stocked bar cabinet in my house. My favorite parts are the little things that take a drink over the top; that next level that will have your friends asking for your secret. And, friends, flavored syrups are a great way to get there.

Don't look now, but we are in the height of s'more season. The recipe hasn't changed much over the years--graham crackers, marshmallows, Hershey bars--but thanks to foodies everywhere, there are new s'mores on the horizon. Here are some that are fluffy, funky and, if my taste buds are good prognosticators, fabulous.
First up is Posh Puff's Breakfast S'more. It's not fudgie, but it's oh so fluffy! It features (gourmet) marshmallows, butter waffle
Lemon juice, water, sugar. We know the drill. But have you ever put lavender in your lemon aid? How about Dijon mustard??? If not, hold on to your undies because we're going to explore some wonderful alternatives to the typical lemon aid stand offerings!
Whipping up something special for that special someone doesn't have to take much time. In the case of most of these sweet treats, a few minutes is all that's required! From dips to whips, there's something for everyone.

Our dearest friends got married last weekend, and we were tickled to pieces. We've known them for years and years and when they decided to take the leap, we replied, "Well it's about time." These two people belong together, and we wanted to commemorate the start of their journey as a wedded couple in a special way. But, we had a hard time coming up with an appropriate gift to mark the occasion.
The gift they gave us when we got married was...

Cooking is inherently a DIY thing, but these 10 projects kick the food-making experience up a notch....or ten.
I admire people who take the time to plan their meals for the upcoming week. For me, meal planning amounts to, "What do you feel like eating tonight?" If I had a cute, hanging recipe organizer, complete with days of the week abbreviations, I just might start to plan meals more
