The Banana Nut Bread That Almost Wasn’t

As you might be able to tell from the uneven bake on these (top half lighter than the bottom) and the weird holes in the center of each loaf, this wasn’t my finest work. Overall it tastes pretty good. The top half tastes really good! But this recipe needs some work. So what went wrong? I’m

Deviled Eggs with Bacon Pepper Jam

Deviled eggs with bacon pepper jam

I make pretty good “regular” deviled eggs, and occasionally I like to mix it up and do something different. My bestie got me a deviled egg transporter for my birthday, which I desperately needed. The last time I transported deviled eggs to a party, it was kind of a disaster. I used the carrier for

The Saga of the Seared Scallops with Dragon Fruit Salsa (Disaster)

Dragon fruit looks cool, but it’s super boring. Think of it as kiwi’s boring cousin. I wanted to see if I could figure out how to liven it up. I like a good challenge, so why not? I saw a recipe on Food Network for seared scallops with dragon fruit salsa. The first red flag

Let’s Talk Knives

  I love a good knife. My favorite knife is the santoku, which is why I have 5 of them (4 in the photo, 1 is in one of the blocks). My Wusthof  chef’s knife (far left on the magnetic strip) is also on my favorites list. So you might be asking why the heck
