She breaks down the science of food and cooking into bite-sized and easily digestible pieces of information that cover everything from the chemistry of heat versus cold, fat versus acid, and salt versus sweet. A great read!

Breakfast has always been a big deal at my house and in my parent's house. We were never allowed to have the "fun" cereals that our friends ate, instead we ate my mother's granola muesli concoctions. Luckily times have changed and so have granola and muesli.

I got this Chicken leg griller from Nordic Ware USA and I made some prosciutto wrapped chicken legs last week and it was a success. I've done a review of the griller which surpassed my expectations.

In a previous post, I talked about lusting after a deBuyer Mandoline (this is not a typo, it is French for Mandolin), and then I got one for Xmas.
