The Perils of Pronunciation

November 16, 2008

I’m afraid that I drove a deli counter clerk around the bend recently. And I still don’t know how it really happened. A bit of background, first…

May 31, 2007

This evening I participated in a Madison area “foodie” panel. It was a lot of fun, I really enjoyed meeting people of like minds, and I hope to continue to connect with all of them in the future, in one way or another. My thanks to the moderators: Eating in Madison from A to Z. […]

February 18, 2005

We have a neighborhood butcher shop that we go to religiously. It’s not in our neighborhood, but we make the trip out of our way to buy all of our meat there. This shop doesn’t have a huge selection of cuts of meat – if I have one complaint, that would be it. But the […]

A FoodTV Moment

February 2, 2005

Like probably most people with food blogs, when there is nothing else on TV, the default channel that gets turned to is the Food Network channel. There are some great shows on the Food Network, but I don’t think I’ve ever gotten a *recipe* from a show. Instead, I tend to absorb concepts and techniques. […]

New Kitchen!

November 21, 2004

As I’ve mentioned a time or two, the reason I’ve been so lax about updating Cuisine Capers is because we are right at the end of building our new house. We got to start moving in on Saturday, after going through a building process that started with the ground breaking way back last April. One […]

Dinner Road Block

September 12, 2004

I’ve hit a dinner road block. I can not, for the life of me, think of something exciting to make for dinner. So I thought, hmmm, what to do… what to do…? Then I said to myself, “Self, you have links to some of the most interesting, inventive food bloggers in the world! Why not […]

IMBB6 – Grillers Delight

July 5, 2004

This month’s Is My Blog Burning is being hosted by Too Many Chefs. It should be an interesting one – it is centered around grilling and barbecuing, with entries to be posted on July 18th. It sounds more like a IMBB for my partner in crime than for me, so we’ll see what happens! Maybe […]

You can’t hit a home run every time

July 4, 2004

Last night I decided I was going to make a nice, thin crust, pesto-based chicken and olive pizza with mushrooms and red peppers. Mmmm, I thought, that sounds so good! So I put the pizza stone in the oven to preheat, and went about rolling out the dough. Then I tossed it, as, well, you […]
