Ok, ok ok - so its been awhile. The new book is now done and been selling well. If you don't have it yet, contact me at to order one - they are $20 plus tax$1.64 and shipping of $4.00. Also, running a special right now - order 10 books and get one free.

What's cooking now: Last night got the Christmas Twice Baked Potatoes from book 1 in the frig. I've got 16 for dinner here on Christmas day - doing a huge prime rib on the Traeger. This morning put the Do-Ahead Sausage Fondue, also book 1, in the frig as well. I actually divide that into 2 smaller pans and stick one in the freezer for later. Since there are only 3 of us, we can't do the whole 9x13 at one sitting - A TIP. I'm also going to be doing the Spinach Gratin with Parmesan and Blue Cheese from the new book so that is done for tomorrow. Now for appetizers, I've been working out of the new book Caprese Salad Kebabs (pretty for holidays), Cowboy Caviar, Holiday Stuffed Brie (have 2 in the freezer - yeah!), Onion Cheese Rounds, Buffalo Chicken Wontons & yes, do the Blue Cheese Dressing & Spicy Pork Wonton Cups - on those I added a can of chopped water chestnuts. These are the appetizers I've been using at signings - very popular.

Now that the new book is done - I promise to keep up better with this and let you know what I'm cooking. Also, I plan on doing some cooking classes next year. Stay Tuned!

Merry Christmas & Happy New Year!

Update on Sunday Cooking

The soup was fabulous and the brownies as well. I would recommend trying both of them. Enjoy!

Sunday Cooking

A night at the Mountain always gives me some time to peruse some new recipes. I just finished the beer that was left after making the marinade for the pork roast which is tomorrow's dinner. Tonight its the soup and I'm sure we'll be sampling the brownies as well. Now it's off to the cooking class schedule (see why I can't get to the book!)
