Me in the Kitchen

This might be my new favorite magazine. This is the June 2011 issue of Food Network magazine.

Last Saturday, my husband smoked a brisket ...

And he smoked some chicken wings ...

Out my new favorite magazine, I made this:

Spinach and Cheese Flatbread (To Die For!!)
And this ...

Baby Spinach, Sliced Strawberries, Walnuts, & Red Wine Vinaigrette (Healthy!)

And these ...

Peanut Butter-Chocolate Chip-BACON Cookies (Not So Healthy, BUT Yummy in My Tummy!)

Mark paired his dinner with a Boulevard Pilsner, and I chose Cupcake Vineyards' Malbec. We both agreed that this was the best dinner we had created in a long time. Translation: It wasn't pizza, mac/cheese, hotdogs, or chicken fingers.

This was one of those rare moments when my ideal reality (gourmet chef) intertwined with my real reality. Sigh.


  1. I think I might need to add this magazine to my stack! Yum! What a great dinner and those cookies! Bacon! Definitely a way to a man's heart! Ha!
    Hope your summer is going well too and we need to do a lunch date soon! :)

  2. Any chance you would like to make a trip to Texas and be my personal chef?
