How do I love thee, oatmeal? Let me count the ways. I love you in your classic form with a little brown sugar and milk. I love you for supper with some cheese mixed in and a poached egg on top. And lately, I love you toasted in brown butter, cooked slowly until you are soft and perfect, and then topped with apple and maple syrup.
What a wonderful month of giveaways it has been with my friends at UncommonGoods, and I have to start this last post by saying a huge THANK YOU to them for providing us with all the beautiful, fun, and, well, uncommon goodies that they have provided for this month of holiday fun. And the very best one I of course saved for last…this gorgeous cookbook stand made of reclaimed wood and salvaged tin. It’s a work of art in addition to being a great place to keep your favorite cookbook as you start baking those holiday goodies. Let’s find out who the lucky lucky winner is!
Oh, so much to say about cheeseburger macaroni and cheese! Starting with the fact that it’s my new favorite in my ever-growing macaroni and cheese repertoire. As far as I am concerned, there will never be enough macaroni and cheese variations in the world, and I owe it to society to keep expanding the macaroni and cheese possibilities. And since the words “cheeseburger” and “macaroni and cheese” just seem to go together so well, I’m not sure what took me so long with this one. But better late then never, so here we go!
Hi, all my friends out there racing around making Thanksgiving plans! As someone who has both thrown and attended many wonderful holiday dinners of all kinds, I know that one of the challenges is trying to get all those delicious dinner items ready All At The Same Time. And while I am still a devoted fan of regular mashed potatoes, one of the fabulous things about this baked variety is that you can make ‘em ahead and bake ‘em later…as is, right next to the turkey. Which saves you from trying to assemble that umpteenth thing alongside the gravy and creamed onions and peas and carrots and on and on and on.
Here it is, everyone – the final and absolutely gorgeous last giveaway from my month-long holiday giveaway extravaganza with one of my favorite holiday gift shopping sites, the wonderful UncommonGoods. When they first offered to contribute these wonderful items that I’ve been giving away these last few weeks, this beautiful, beautiful cookbook stand made of reclaimed wood was the very first thing that caught my eye. I adore it. It’s not only functional, but it’s a work of art. It’s an amazing gift for any cook on your holiday list. Let’s go get it!
Okay, I asked you guys to enter this latest UncommonGoods giveaway for this super-cool BBQ Ninja set by leaving me comments on your favorite thing to grill. Which in hindsight was not the most organized move on my part, because all your mouthwatering ideas now make me want to send the Southern husband directly out to the grill, which due to the time change is now cloaked in darkness by 5:30. Sigh. But in the meantime, let’s get on to more important matters, such as the winner of this fabulous BBQ set!
