Got your gourd?

Got your gourd?

Now that its fall, I like to make fall themed foods. Pumpkin is one of my all time favorite fall foods… Pumpkin bread, pumpkin muffins, pumpkin pasta… Just all things pumpkin. I even have a pumpkin candle that I only feel its right to burn […]

Spooooky Cupcakes

Spooooky Cupcakes

In honor of Halloween, I made spooky spiderweb cupcakes. They look very cool, but only take a minute to decorate. It might take a little practice to get the piping technique perfect, but it’s OK… you can just eat the ones that don’t turn out […]

Seared Shrimp and Orzo

Seared Shrimp and Orzo

This is a delicious, quick cooking shrimp dinner that is sure to impress! Its made similar to shrimp scampi, but is served on Orzo instead of Linguine. Orzo is actually a wonderful semolina pasta that looks like a flat rice. I added a little diced red and yellow pepper to make it pretty, but it can always be omitted.

Cawfee Tawk

Cawfee Tawk

I’m not usually a big fan of coffee cakes, as they are usually so fattening and somehow taste dry despite the excessive fat. Since I had several apples approaching the point of no return I searched online for a easy quick dessert made with apples […]

Pao, Right in the Kisser

Pao, Right in the Kisser

My sister in law, Raluca, gave me a beautiful red Le Creuset Wok the last time she and her husband were here for a visit. I was giddy with happiness at this gift, as I had been wanting it for a long time. Then, sadly, […]

Salmon with White Bean Salad

Salmon with White Bean Salad

We’ve been eating more red meat lately, and I was craving a little lighter fare. This was also one of those evenings when I was dog tired and just wasn’t in the mood to cook. I think I spent all of about 20 minutes cooking this dinner, and that includes the broiling!

Going ‘Naners!!!

Going ‘Naners!!!

One of my coworkers had a banana tree that made more bananas than she could imagine using so she brought in a giant bunch for everyone at work. They were adorable little bananas, but very green. I patiently babysat my bunch every day, turning them, […]

Yo Quiero Quesadilla

Yo Quiero Quesadilla

I’m not one to order quesadillas at Mexican Restaurants because they are usually loaded down with some obscure yellow cheese and just oozing with extra fat. So this is my take on (somewhat) healthy quesadillas. I use Queso Blanco, which is the perfect cheese for […]

Making Strides for Breast Cancer

Making Strides for Breast Cancer

I’m posting this again, as today is the first day of Breast CancerAwareness Month.Please join our team or donate towards the cause.

My husband, Stephan, and I have created a team to walk in the annual Making Strides Against Breast Cancer Walk in Ft Lauderdale. Anyone who is interested in joining our team, please go here and sign up. We are really looking forward to raising some money and supporting this very important cause. If you can’t walk with us and would like to donate, you may do so here.

Making Strides Against Breast Cancer is more than just the name of a walk, it describes the amazing progress we’re making in the fight against breast cancer, and it describes our commitment to defeat this disease together! Nothing can describe the hope that is inspired by walking with those who share a passion for defeating breast cancer. Because nearly everyone has been touched by this disease in some way, we’ve decided to walk together as a team in the American Cancer Society’s Making Strides Against Breast Cancer walk.

Bigfatknot Studio will match the donations, up to $1000!!!! So the more generous you are, the more we are! We will also give a one hour photo shoot for the highest donation. Come on people… its for a great cause!

The walk will take place on Saturday, October 13 at 9am. Once you have joined our team we will contact you with the 411 to let you know where and when. If you join by 10/5 we will make you a cool t-shirt to wear at the walk ;)
