the red velvet cupcake recipe

Yesterday, Mare made some red velvet cupcakes and they were delicious. With Valentine’s Day next week, these cupcakes are very popular this time of year. Coincidentally, I stumbled across this segment online that aired on the local news this morning and figured I’d post this to all of you who like to bake tasty treats […]

All right! Mare just showed up at The 701 with a ten-piece of delicious fried chicken from the place that knows what good is. I’ve been craving some fried chicken lately, and it is time to indulge. All I’ve eaten today was a large cup of coffee, a can of Italian wedding soup, and three […]

the naan pizza

Late last month, Mare picked up some naan (pronounced ‘non’, not na-an) from Whole Foods, and we made some tasty pizzas with it.
