Avoid Farmers' Market Faux Pas

Come on give the kids a break. They are just being kids. I am like you I don't like out of control kids, but to expect them to be perfect in an environment like a farmers market is ridiculous.

I have a fetish for Bread Pudding--Help me!

You will have to check out the dessert truck then. I saw them on Bobby Flay's Throwdown and it looks like they make a mean bread pudding.

10 worst dining trends of the last decade: Cupcakes, Kobe, Foam...

When I was in school we could not deconstruct anything. It wasn't the answer from the book or the teacher it was wrong. I have been trying to learn that to some things there is no right or wrong answer, and that people can have different opinions on things. As far as the deconstructed carbonara goes I don't think that I think that it is interesting, but I am a fan of whole food with a limited amount of processing. I think the more that a food is processed the more it resembles it's macronutrient content and not any real food at all. Am I saying that there any processing is bad, no I am not but I think that less is more.

Gifts in jars - cookie mix, pancake mix, soup mix - What have you done? What would you do again--or not??

We have done cookie in a jar before. You add the ingredients to the cookie into a glass jar so you can see the differnt layers. Then decorate the top of the jar fancy and attache a recipe on how much egg butter ect. to add and baking instructions. Pretty easy and it always a hit.

How to Wrap Home Made Bread

I have been addicted to making No Knead bread lately. I am trying not to eat all the bread that I make so I have been giving it away. I have not come up with an ideal way to wrap it up. Does anyone have any suggestions on how to wrap it up so it looks fancy but is breathable so it doesn't sweat?

The Basics: How to Roast a Turkey

Now I know how to look like a hero during thanksgiving. I think the biggest mistake people make is that they throw it it frozen.

The Scoop

What about ice cream spades? I have never used one but they seem quite popular at ice cream shops.
