What? No Spam?

October 6, 2007

I have just discovered the side benefit to the torture I went through in migrating this blog from MovableType to WordPress. The spammers can not find me! Yes, I know it is only temporary, but this blog has now gone from literally thousands of spam messages a day to – drumroll please – NONE! I […]

September 29, 2007

For those of you who may have noticed our absense, I’m pleased to announce that we are back. I admit, our updates have been few and far between as of late.  Between server problems, blog software problems, stressful lives and a multitude of other excuses…. errr…. reasons, Cuisine Capers has been a lower priority than […]

Is Foodie a Four Letter Word?

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. […]

Madison Interactive Foodie Panel

May 23, 2007

Hi all, I’m out of town at the moment, but thought I’d drop a quick note about a local Madison event coming up, featuring a Foodie Panel. It should be fun! Madison Interactive, a group for people who work on public websites – both for work and for play – in the Madison area – […]

The Big Debate

May 9, 2007

This entry doesn’t have much to do with food or cooking, I’m afraid. I’ve become somewhat frustrated with the platform that this blog runs on. I’m using MovableType, which I have always loved, but which is becoming increasingly frustrating for a few reasons. Most of my other blogs (Madison Dining Online, Cooking Out Of The […]

Broken Blogroll

March 13, 2007

After weeks of frustration and beating my head against a brick wall, I’ve finally figured out that it was my blog roll that was breaking my Movable Type template. So, it has been removed until I can figure out how to add it back in without breaking the entire blog!

Rachel Ray’s Garbage Bowl

September 18, 2006

I give up. I’ve spent a lot of time pondering this, and I’ve been unable to come up with an answer. Why do people search for “Rachel Ray’s garbage bowl”? An enormous number of people find Cuisine Capers each and every day in their Google quest for information on this item. Now, granted, one could […]

What I Know From My Web Stats

August 26, 2006

It is amazing what you can learn from your blog when you look at your web stats: It’s football season! This is proven by all of the people searching for Packer Elvis, The Bears Still Suck Polka, and the famed Johnsonville Truck/Grill. The Bratwurst seen around the world! For some unknown reason, websites around the […]

Take that, Spam!

August 1, 2006

I hate Spam. No, that isn’t a comment about the food product (or would that be alleged food product?). That is a statement against the reviled comment spam that almost anyone who has a blog deals with. I have spent hours and hours deleting spam from this blog. In addition to that, my blacklist program […]

November 13, 2005

Well, never gone, really, just on hiatus. Life has been busy, but with summer winding down and the threat of winter moving in to take its place, I figure some serious cooking is going to start setting in. So, I’m back, and I’m going to start to get back into the food blogging grove! A […]

It’s a Party!

March 26, 2005

Cuisine Capers Turns One A little over a year ago I decided to create a food blog. The idea struck me out of the blue, for no apparent reason. I had set up many other blogs in the past, but I wanted one that I could use to concentrate on food and cooking. I didn’t […]

Any Indiana Food Bloggers Out There?

March 17, 2005

Here’s your chance for the spotlight! I got the following comment on this blog. We’re not in Indiana, but if you are, contact this guy! My name is Abe Aamidor and I’m a reporter at The Indianapolis Star. We’re doing a little feature on Indiana-based food bloggers and your site does reference some restaurants in […]

Behind the Scenes

January 6, 2005

I’m always amused when I start peeling back the cover of my blog and look behind the scenes. My sources of entertainment are from mainly two areas; the amount and type of comment spam that is stopped by my spam filter, and the search engine terms that are used to get to my site. Let’s […]

Surprise! We’re in the Isthmus…

December 27, 2004

Dainec, a local web-friend that I’ve known for three years or so, but have never met (just when are we going to go and get that coffee?), alerted me to the fact that Cuisine Capers was mentioned in the latest issue of The Isthmus, a weekly Madison newspaper tradition. Surprised, I trudged out on a […]

I’m not dead… really

November 7, 2004

I’m not dead… I am just spending my life packing. We’re getting ready to move into our new house and we are up to our eyeballs in packing and getting ready. Rumor has it that we may be able to start moving in on November 19th. Once the kitchen appliances are installed, I plan on […]
