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. […]
A quick perusal of my blog stats tell me that many of you are hitting this blog right about now searching for tickets to the Great Taste of the Midwest. Pardon me for a moment while I rant. I will never again purchase tickets to another Great Taste of the Midwest. I won’t even use […]
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 […]
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. […]
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 […]
The latest “Is My Blog Burning?” will prove to be quite a challenge for me. Hosted by Derrick over at Obsession With Food, he’s chosen to make the IMBB #9 theme “Terrines”. I’ve never made a terrine before. I’ve never even thought about making a terrine before! This ought to be interesting!
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 […]
The latest edition of Is My Blog Burning has been announced! It’s IMBB 8: Lift your Spirits High, hosted by There’s A Chef In My Kitchen. Entries will be posted on September 19th. The only rule for this edition: Use wine or spirits as a central component of your recipe. I can do that!
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 […]
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 […]
I’ve been waiting for the latest “Is My Blog Burning” event, as I have not participated in one as of yet. This one is hosted by chez pim. I already know exactly what I want to make, though I may need to compromise. The concept I have in mind involves shrimp, and my significant other […]
