Life’s On Fire – Cooking for the Rushed

August 9, 2010

With the end of the lazy, carefree days of summer coming up it is time to start getting into real life mode. With back to school, club meetings, dance lessons, sports, ect ect ect….I recommend running out and buying this book! It really works! It gives you everything you need to have your busy life and eat good food too. On Sunday you print off a copy of the shopping list, check it off, go to the store once and ta da you are ready for the next weeks dinners.

The recipes are simple , older kids would have no problem taking a turn and helping out.The meals are tasty even for the fussy ones in your house.

Local author Sandy Richards knows what she is doing, she has 7  children!

I have made every thing in this book and I don’t think there is one I would not try again, some recipes have become family favorites.

Try it , you will like it!   Keep smiling, from Lianna

Chef attends Christmas party!

December 6, 2009

Pierre A Lamielle the author and illustrator of the humorous cookbook “Kitchen Scraps” was welcomed by our staff from both stores to host our annual Christmas party. We enjoyed a three course meal starting with the “Julius Caesar Salad”. The salad was crisp and refreshing with a nice light taste. Everyone gobbled it up including our single Celiac at the table.

Our main course was entitled “Vampire slayer’s garlic-laced chicken. This marvelously moist chicken pumped up full of garlic was a sure fire way to keep all our  vampires (aka husbands) away.

Last, but not least we were please to taste the “half-baked pot brownies”. Cooked in a medium sized pot the biggest challenge about making these brownies was to eat them. Overall a gooey, fudgy experience was had by all.

Not only did we get to eat Pierre’s food, he also autographed all our cookbooks. True to his nature this wasn’t just any autograph though. A unique one of kind illustration for all of us. We could really see his passion and many different talents of this extraordinary young  man.

Congratulations on a wonderful evening and great tasting food!
