A Sign of the Coming APOCALYPSE

I've been banging around in the kitchen all day, anticipating the arrival of my fellow kitchen-adventurer, Diane.

I took a break whilst one of my experiments was in the oven and decided to see what was going on in the world of the internets.

Imagine my shock when the lead off article on the Yahoo! homepage was about the lousy economy threatening to destroy KRISPY KREME!!!

Please, say it ain't so. Why can't the economy destroy something I don't like...take McDonalds, or Burger King, or coconut farms, or licorice factories. Why Krispy Kreme?? Life will be difficult to live without Krispy Kreme. Ok- so I don't eat them much (because they are so good and so BAD for you) and they aren't really available where I live (except sometimes in boxes shipped God knows how far to get to my local supermarket). But life was richer just knowing that somewhere, someone just like me was biting into a fresh-off-the-conveyor-belt Krispy Kreme donut.

So- to keep this ultimate evil from happening, I want everyone who reads this blog (all 4 of you) to go out and buy dozens and dozens of Krispy Kreme donuts. We have to save this cultural icon! We have to preserve this wonderful treat for our children and their children and their children after them. Do you want your progeny to grow up in a world without the soft melty-goodness of a fresh, hot Krispy Kreme donut??? I know I don't want that. Selfishly, I don't want that for me. I want to go home to Savannah this summer and be able to gawk at the conveyor belt laden with hundreds of little glazed love pillows. I want to stand in the store and eat 2 of them right off the belt and wash them down with some ice cold milk.

Economy be damned!! I want my donuts!!

Gosh, I've never even had a Kripsy Kreme doughnut in my whole life (and I'm over 50!). I guess I've lived in the San Luis Valley for too long. Next time we go somewhere like Santa Fe or Pueblo, I hope to try one!

Well, Sammie, it is high time you had one!
I don't remember seeing a Krispy Kreme in Santa Fe or Pueblo, but you can bet I'll look next time I'm in either place!!

I will do my part, just for you :)

OMG girl! I saw that same article and could not believe my eyes. Nothing is better than a hot fresh KK "love pillow" (you so aptly named it!) right out of the grease! I pity anyone who has never had the pleasure. Do whatever it takes to get one! Will you be in Savannah this summer? If we coincide, I propose a MAJOR KK ROAD TRIP!!!

We are trying to get out there around the 15th of July. I'll email you when we know for sure!!

Carrot Cake!!!!!!

I made my very first ever from scratch homemade cake at 7,500 feet above sea level today. I have made many homemade cakes before, but that was back home in Savannah, which is practically 2 feet below sea level.

After many dismal failures (including box mixes) I have finally made a cake from scratch that turned out decent. No- better than decent. I think this is the best cake I've ever made. No joke.

It all started when my fried Emmy posted on her blog about receiving as a gift from her hubby, a copy of "The Joy of Cooking." By the way, you should go read her blog. She is nauseatingly multi-talented. She cooks and knits beautifully, as well as a bunch of other stuff I learn about every freakin' time I read her blog. So go over to her blog right now.

Anyhoo...she read the high altitude instructions and cranked out a beautiful red velvet cake that made me drool. After reading that, I decided it was time to stop being a wuss about baking at high altitude and try a…

Pork Posole- Instant Pot Version

I have a good friend at work who is from the Jalisco region of Mexico.  Lorenza grew up outside of Puerto Vallarta.  Recently, she has been educating me on where to find the best Hispanic products and food in the valley where we live.

Aside from ruining my ability to ever eat Mexican food in Rifle ever again, her teachings have made me rediscover my love of Mexican food- both dining out and making it at home.

My husband, Will, is battling a cold for the second time in a row- which was the only excuse I needed to get in the kitchen and whip up some posole.

In my opinion, posole is to Mexican mamas what chicken noodle soup is to American/Southern mamas... pure comfort.

I make absolutely no claims of authenticity, nor do I believe this is the best way to make it.  But it sure did hit the spot after a day of cleaning and craft projects!

Here’s the link to the recipe I used from a blog I read frequently called “Pressure Cooking Today.” I did not follow it exactly (big shock- I know) as I…

Day 1 of Summer 2018!

There are obviously many things to enjoy about summer. Cooking is one of my favorites. Making creative meals at a leisurely pace is a luxury that rarely occurs during the school year. 
This is my first leisurely breakfast creation of the summer. I had leftover roasted sweet potatoes, so I threw them in my trusty cast iron skillet with some rough-chopped red onion and breakfast sausage. Devin likes his eggs scrambled. I like my hash topped with a fried egg. Either way you go- it was a suitable First Breakfast of the Summer!
