Cookware is very important to me. I have certain pots and pans that I use for specific things. For example, I have a plain steel pan that I always use to make queso dip in. I always cook eggs in the same non-stick skillet. Beans always go in the same pot. My cast-iron is no different. I have two identical small cast-iron skillets. One of them is almost exclusively used to sauté mushrooms and onions. The other is used to make fried vegetables. My large skillet is the most versatile; I cook all kinds of meats in it as well...

I didn’t start using a calendar until last year. I always thought that it was useless, because I have a smartphone and if I wanted to keep track of dates and appointments I would just use my phone. Right? No. I never use my phone to keep track of anything. Maybe some people are better than I am at that kind of thing, but I have a hard time using my phone for that purpose. It doesn’t even occur to me most of the time, and I completely forget to do it. My calendar hangs on the refrigerator. When I... Continue reading

If you haven’t burned yourself in the kitchen, you probably don’t cook very often. I have burned my hands so many times in my kitchen. Want to hear some stories? Most of my burns are done when I am lifting things out of the oven. That top oven rack is my bane. The first time that I can remember, I made a cheesy potato casserole for my boyfriend, and when I went to take it out I singed my right wrist. Then there was the time that I was so mad at him that I told him I wasn’t going... Continue reading

One of the things that I love the most about being in my kitchen every day is that it is probably the room that I have had the most wisdom passed down to me from my parents, grandparents, and family members. Every time I watched my stepmother, grandmother and grandfather cook I learned things not only about how to cook, but about life. We discussed our plans, our hopes and dreams, our heartaches, and our happy memories. I learned about their past, and became closer to them with every story. My mother’s father is Italian, and he does most of... Continue reading

I don’t know if chicken and dumplings is a popular dish anywhere outside the southern United States, but I have grown up eating it and it is one of my favorite comfort foods. Everyone has their own technique and recipe to make it, which is part of what makes it so special. And, of course, everyone’s own grandmother makes the best chicken and dumplings they’ve ever had. My own recipe for this dish is ridiculously simple, and if I am honest, underdeveloped. I like to make it when I have leftover meat on the bones of a whole chicken that... Continue reading
