Friday Shout Out

On behalf of my husband, who discovered these and never looked back: Utz Chips and Snacks.

A good friend from way up North loves their Special Pretzels, too. Scott tried a bag from their "Grandma Utz" line and discovered the secret ingredient that made the kettle chips so tasty was lard. Healthy!

They don't just offer the usual original, sour cream and onion, BBQ, etc. flavors, either. Why stop there when you can have:

Relax - no crabby taste. They're covered in Old Bay style seasoning.

Happy Friday and early Easter! May there be many eggs and Peeps in your baskets.


  1. YUM! I know! When I lived in Phila, me and a bunch of people at my Co. had the chip truck come every week and deliver us chips in tins, and then take our order for the next week. Utz lard fried, Utz Crab, Utz Kettle... OMG! We were all Chip-o-holics!

  2. Are these the chips we had at the beach? Or somewhere else with you guys... camping?

  3. I don't remember which chips they were. Rachel already has an order in for the special dark pretzels for the beach trip so I will bring some chips too!

Friends with Benefits: Meet EV Originals

I love that feeling when a friend accomplishes something wonderful.

Maybe because I'm a only child and thus friends often feel like family, or maybe it's just because we all need a little more raising up these days.

So when I heard that a friend from the Nashville, TN area who co-founded and operates a catering business decided to share her culinary talents with the masses and create a line of bottled products, EV Originals, I did a big ol' happy dance.

The Best Way to Keep Cannoli Fresh and Other Baltimore Stories

My mom and step-dad were up visiting for Thanksgiving and after gorging ourselves on turkey and the sites of D.C., I took them on a day-trip to Baltimore.

After a visit to my mom's favorite museum (she's a mosaic artist), we aimed for lunch at Rocket to Venus in Hampden. It was closed for lunch, but our trip up Charles St. wasn't for naught - we stumbled onto residents of 34th St. setting up their Christmas displays! This street is Christmas at its best, or worst, depending on your tolerance/interest in all things Christmas. Erin teases me for being a scrooge, but I have to admit, lights and what-not are nice at this cold and dark time of year.

After a brief walk through Hampden, we aimed for lunch at Kooper's Tavern in Fells Point. The tavern was most certainly open, with rowdy sports fans packing the bar and even spilling onto the sidewalk for fresh-shucked oysters. (My friend Gideon would have camped out right there for their Chincoteagues!) After some deliberati…

Some Like It Hot -- And Toasted on Both Sides

The latest news in appliances seems to indicate there's no love for the good ol' traditional Crock-Pot.
Fictional drama aside, the slow cooker most of us grew up with is receiving some healthy competition from the new hot thing, the Instapot
But in our house, we're having a face-off with a completely different category of kitchen appliances -- it's the Toaster vs Toaster Oven.
