I have decided to take a break this week in the kitchen and allow the spotlight to shine on a dear friend and fellow foodie. I have known Brandi for just about 10 years and we have been laughing together for just as long. On one of our latest trips to her home in Pittsburgh she honored us with one of her Strawberry Rhubarb Pies. Some folks are nervous about the addition of the latter ingredient, infiltrating the sugary sweetness of the strawberry, but I have good news for you nay-sayers. In 1947 New York State court ruled that rhubarb was used in the U.S. mainly as a fruit, so it shall be considered as such! That’s right, rhubarb is fruit. Feel better? I thought so!

I actually debated whether or not to tackle such an iconic food. Nothing has changed about it since it was invented by the dinosaur, Trismorasauras, 250 million years ago! Some of that last statement may be false… you can google it later.
My fear was that someone would ask the question, “Why mess with the s’more?” and I wouldn’t have a good enough answer. I came up with a pretty good compromise. The basics have stayed the same, graham cracker, milk chocolate bar, marshmallow, but I added a simple ingredient to give it a twist! Below you will find 4 S’mores that tip-toe outside of the box without destroying the perfection that is a campfire s’more. Enjoy! Continue reading
I’m taking a short break from Pittsburgh posts (there are still a few coming!). Tonight the weather was unbelievably perfect which, of course, means I am outside all evening! I took the opportunity to grill some NY Strip and make a nice light salad, but who cares about a salad on a night like tonight, bring on the dessert! I’ll start with a wide shot so as to not cause immediate combustion. Warning, as the photos get larger, you WILL become more hungry. Continue reading
