Loaded Baked Potato Dip

Loaded Baked Potato Dip - Poet in the Pantry

I hear there’s a big game this weekend. Something about football? American football, I believe…

You got me! I’m not much of a sports fan. I don’t mind getting together with others to watch a big game, but that’s only because of the food. It’s all about the food, and I make plenty of it.

Bacon Cinnamon Buns

Bacon Cinnamon Bun - Poet in the Pantry

Today was a wrap-yourself-in-a-blanket day. Not because it was a lazy Sunday. No, if only it were that easy. But rather, taking advantage of the time change, I spent the whole morning making bread–because that’s what I do when the mercury takes a dive: bake bread–only to spend 2 hours this afternoon on a soccer …

Bacon Wrapped Dates Stuffed with Blue Cheese…or Little Bites of Heaven

Bacon Wrapped Dates Stuffed with Blue Cheese - poet in the pantry

Dates freak me out a little.

They remind me of the cockroach exhibit at the Bronx Zoo, where you can pretend to walk amongst them. I have no idea why anyone would want to pursue such an endeavor–don’t most of us want to run in the other direction, throwing shoes at them?–but there you can …

Steamed Bacon Buns

Steamed Bacon Buns

I have a confession to make: the first time I ate a steamed (pork) bun was last year. March, to be exact, when I attended the Tourism Australia luncheon. I wasn’t quite sure what to make of it at first–it looked…anemic. Where was my golden crust? Why did it look under-baked? Why would I want to consume …
