Noodling About with Spiral Slicers & Thai Nut Butter Sauce

Warm greetings to you, kind reader, and a bittersweet farewell to 2015   As promised per my previous post, I have more to share in relation to some testing I’ve been doing of various attachments acquired for use with the KitchenAid Artisan series stand mixer I’ve recently inherited upon the passing of my dear father. This holiday season has been incredibly difficult without him, and experimentation with one of his most liked gadgets was meant to bring a bit of joy into a heart-heavy journey...

2015 Year End Update – KitchenAid Joy & A Fond Farewell

Corned Beetroot

Erm… WHAT and cabbage?   Strange as it may sound, I honestly had no idea what “corned beef” was, or how such a thing was made, until just a few short weeks ago. I suppose it’s possible that some morbid curiosity at the name was what led me to sit still for long enough to find out… Cheers for the cringes, Food Network! 😛 Perhaps that’s only to be expected from someone who never really engaged in consumption of such things (though I can hardly believe that my 25th...

Please consider this as my St. Patrick’s Day gift to all, of which this post shall be the first installment.
