I’m just back from lovely, laid back Asheville, North Carolina. I’m five pounds heavier, but the dieting I’m doing is well worth it because Asheville has some of the best restaurants I’ve ever encountered, and I’ve had plenty of food in New York City, Austin, TX, and Los Angeles, so I know my overpriced fancy food. Except Asheville isn’t overpriced, and depending on where you go, it isn’t over the top fancy.
But it’s good.
So good I’m writing about it and you know how often I post. (Happy, Diana?)
This is my second time in Asheville. I was here last September for the Type A Parent Conference, a blogging conference put on by Asheville resident Kelby Carr. I enjoyed myself so much in the city and at the conference that I made it my mission to come back again.
Asheville, though technically a city, has a small college town feel. With plenty of sidewalks, you can walk everywhere you need to go. On this trip I realized how much I enjoyed walking around at night in the city. I live in a place with no sidewalks, so evening strolls are extremely rare. Or if we do go for a walk after …Deb Ng
I was kind of afraid to try quinoa. Frankly, it scared me. See, here’s the thing about healthy eating: when I was growing up eating healthy meant eating a lot of rabbit food, or heavy, bland whole grains. I know things have changed since back in the day, but I still haven’t gotten past the healthy=bland thing. I don’t like lettuce and I’m not a fan of dense, grainy food.
My other issue with healthy food is that I can’t always get my family to try stuff that’s different or exotic. If my son could live on mac & cheese he would, and my husband loves his carbs like rice and potatoes (not brown rice, mind you) and for him the key to losing weight is to just say no to the junk food that’s in the house. As a fat chick, I can tell you it’s not so easy. So I decided that this year I will find my own recipes. If my family wants to try them, they’re more then welcome to. However, I don’t mind cooking a separate meal …Deb Ng
So Mr. Ng and I are browsing the cookie cutters at Williams Sonoma a couple of weeks ago, and what to my wandering eye should appear, but a box of Star Wars cookie cutters:
We have a standard set of holiday cookie cutters at home. You know, the usual Christmas trees, snowmen and bells and stuff. However, as a geek, this called to me. Plus The Boy is just winding down from a major (and I mean major) StarWars phase.
I’m not an impulsive girl and there’s no way I’d spend $20 for 4 cookie cutters, but these called for me. They even called to Mr. Ng whose wallet is sealed tighter than the Declaration of Independence. So, we left William Sonoma with a box of overpriced cookie cutters.
The Boy loved them and last Saturday we got down to business.
The cookie cutters have lots of nooks and crannies, but thankfully they have those press things on the back to make dough removal easier. However, we did find it easier to dust the cookie cutters …Deb Ng
When I made my confirmation in 7th grade I asked my mother if I could sit at the grownup table during our celebratory dinner. Certainly a 7th grader who received such a grownup sacrament shouldn’t be subjected to having to eat with mere children. Mom acquiesced. I could tell she didn’t really want me sitting with the adults, but she wasn’t going to say no to me on such a special occasion.
No Kids Allowed
As someone relegated to eating in the kitchen for every holiday and occasion, the mysterious grownup goingson in the dining room intrigued me. First, it was the room itself. The dining room was forbidden. We weren’t allowed to touch or use the furniture, and my parents only spent time in this most formal room during special occasions. When would I be special enough to eat there too?
Then there was the good china. Only grownups got to eat off the good stuff. Maybe I had a couple of accidents with plates now and again, but does that mean I was destined to a life of plastic and Corelle? Not only did grownups get to eat …Deb Ng
I have a love/hate relationship with candy canes. I love them because, well, peppermint? Hello? And I have issues because I buy a box and no one ever eats them. I have candy canes that are several years old in my cabinet. And it’s not even that my family doesn’t dig candy canes, it’s just that they’re an investment. You can’t just pop a piece in your mouth and be done with it. You need time and hands to manage a candy cane. Plus, with younger kids they tend to spread the joy a little more and get some of that sticky goodness all over themselves and everything else within reach.
A couple of years ago, I decided to get a little creative with my candy canes and now we don’t have boxes languishing in our cabinets.Deb Ng
Sprinkle the Love
One of my favorite things to do with candy canes is to crush them into powder and sprinkle them on my sugar cookies as soon as they come out of the oven. I also use them to top cakes and my chocolate dipped pretzels. I have also used crushed …
Three years ago, I left a food blogging gig for greener pastures. I missed it terribly though and still wanted a place where I could talk about food, so I made the decision to start a food blog. I didn’t want a snobby type of food blog, though. I wanted to create a place where home cooks could converge and share tips and ideas. A place where we could share our tried and true recipes and techniques without the real foodies laughing at us.
Cookerati was born.
When I had the idea to start Cookerati, I didn’t necessarily have the time to pull it off. I was blogging for several different clients and I had a child in kindergarten. Cookerati was my stress free project, a place where I could blog without deadlines and editors breathing down my neck. However, I just didn’t have the time to maintain another blog and thought about bringing in help.
Who did I know with a passion for food?
My sister Diana Hayes developed a passion for food early on. When she was in 8th grade she did the cooking for her five brothers and sisters …Deb Ng
Do you know what’s better than Thanksgiving?
The day after Thanksgiving.
Now, we all love the feast, but let’s be honest. You know that your midnight stuffing sandwich or slice of apple pie for breakfast rock way harder than the cold meal served on the actual holiday. ( And don’t deny that half the Thanksgiving dishes are being served up cold because no one has that big an oven.)
Turkey sandwiches with mayonaise, potato pancakes made from the leftover mashed, and let us not forget our pumpkin pie and dinner rolls…you know that the reason you make up too much is because you want to have something to pick at over the next few days.
Warmed in the microwave or eaten cold out of the container, with leftovers you can skip the pleasantries and small talk and get to the matter at hand. You don’t have to set out the good China. nor do you have to find the perfect wine pairing because they go with everything.
You’re probably hoping I don’t mention those special leftovers, the items you don’t want to share with departing guests. Oh sure, you’ll make …Deb Ng
I love my husband. It’s because I love him that we leave our home every Thanksgiving and spend two hours navigating the congested roads leading in to New York city to spend the day with his family. Now, don’t take this the wrong way, because I enjoy spending time with my husband’s family, but on Thanksgiving I’d rather be at home.
I know I’m not the only one.
I have a friend who is the product of divorced parents. Her husband is also the product of divorced parents. Each Thanksgiving and Christmas they have to spend equal time at four different households in order to keep the family peace. She doesn’t want to be at any of their houses, but she sucks it up and goes because it’s easier than explaining that she wants to stay home, darn it, and cook for her family or that the last thing she wants to do on a holiday is drive from house to house to house.
People who don’t leave the house for the holidays don’t really understand that some of us would also rather not leave our homes on …Deb Ng
Diana sent me an email the other day asking if we should talk about “National Make Dinner Day.” My first instinct was to roll my eyes and ignore the whole thing. But then, I thought, “why not blog about it.” Every now and then it’s fun to share some of the sillyness happening on the web.
Not My Men
I don’t know about you, but my husband doesn’t need a special day to make dinner. He does so almost every weekend. During the summer grilling months (and even during somewhat chilly times) he can be seen rocking the grill on weekdays too. In fact, I don’t know of one man who doesn’t make dinner for his family at least once a week.
One of the reasons I never bought that whole men as bumbling idiots thing is because I’ve never seen anything to indicate this is so. My dad’s favorite thing to do was cook and he enjoyed testing new gourmet recipes every weekend. My Grandpa Montgomery used to cook dinner for my grandmother every weeknight because she arrived home from her store later than he …
