It's Memorial Day!

Monday May 26, 2014

Memorial Day CelebrationToday's the day we honor our armed forces. Where I live we'll do that by getting up really early to get our place in a line of patriotically-decorated golf carts. Our golf cart parade will travel for a couple of miles on tree-lined golf cart paths around a lake and past many homes. The parade will end in front of our library near this monument to our armed forces. There will be a presentation to the flag, patriotic singing and speeches.

Whether your Memorial Day begins with a golf cart parade or at a cool pool party, you can better enjoy them with these recipes.

It's National Pudding Day

Thursday May 22, 2014

Photo by Carroll PellegrinelliYes, there's much more to making Vanilla Pudding from scratch, but you've already all of the ingredients. It is made from basic cooking ingredients: milk, eggs, flour, sugar and vanilla. It does take a little more time than mixing powder with milk, but the flavor and texture are worth it.

National Devil's Food Cake Day

Monday May 19, 2014

Devils Food CakeI'm not sure how a Devil's Food Cake got its name. Could it be that the guilt you feel while eating it makes you a big sinner? Of course, it really doesn't matter how it got its name. It's more about the chocolate satisfaction you can only get from a Devil's Food Cake.

National Cherry Cobbler DayCherries are just as much about texture as flavor. Not many other recipes feature those attributes like a cherry cobbler.

Outstanding Under $10 Gift

Thursday May 15, 2014

The Lid PocketI've just found "the" perfect under $10 gift for the cooks in your life. Of course, you've got to have one too! It's the Lid Pocket.

How many times have you fed a crowd out of the crockpot and had no place to put the lid? It has the same footprint as the pot and, typically, it's wet from the hot steam build-up in the pot. The Lid Pocket solves that problem. It hangs freely, while the lid is on the top of the pot. Once the lid is removed, it can be placed in the Lid Pocket.

The only problem I see with the Lid Pocket is that if you're like me, you'll need at least two of them.

The Lid Pocket is this really nifty gadget that hangs off of your crockpot. It holds the lid, while you're getting food out of the crockpot. Right now you can only find it online on their website: www.lidpocket.com
