  • Fruit Cake

    The traditional store-bought canned fruitcake is the scourge of the universe, the butt of many jokes, but a homemade fruitcake is downright delicious!  My father’s mother made a great fruitcake, but I never did see that recipe.  In my own baking, I’ve tended to go with the white fruitcakses, such as my Apricot Macadamia Nut Fruitcake, […]

  • John Grogan and Shameless Self-Promotion

    No food today – just shameless self-promotion. Both of us have always been avid ‘letters to the editor’ writers and have had scores of letters published over the years. About four years ago (former) Inquirer columnist John Grogan came across one of my letters, happened on to ourtimandvictor.com website and, intrigued, emailed me about doing […]

  • Pomegranate Chicken

    I worked up an appetite today!  I actually went to the gym.  Yes.  Me.  A gym.  Not only did I go to a gym, I saw a personal trainer.  Yes.  Me.  A gym AND a personal trainer. I just quit smoking and decided I just didn’t want to gain 60 pounds – again.  I’ve lost […]

  • Pumpkin Done Right

    I just got home from a Pumpkin Recipe Contest at work. OMG!  I am stuffed – but more than stuffed, I am impressed! What an unbelievable collection of foods in one place!  Each employee came up with their own recipes and without prior consultation, we had no duplicates.  Each item was totally unique with its […]

  • Turkey Soup

    It was cold today – at least this west coast blood thought it was cold today – and cold means soup at my house! I had cooked a small turkey breast on Thursday, and with plenty of meat and a carcass, I set to work. Soups are generally ‘clean out the refrigerator’ meals, and today’s […]

  • Leftovers

    I think I mentioned I cooked a LOT of food this past weekend.  A lot.  Granted, we ate a lot, but there have been a few leftovers… I can handle leftovers as well as the next guy, but after a while, I just don’t want to see them anymore – at least not in their original […]

  • Pass the Bromo Seltzer!

    Everyone’s gone.  The house is eerily quiet after three days of non-stop eating, drinking, laughter, and fun.  Did I mention eating, drinking, laughter, and fun? It was a late Friday arrival from San Francisco (thank you, Delta and the baggage crew at PHL…) but as the arrivee’s were on Pacific time, we ended up staying up […]
