Ok, so I have seriously started writing this blog post at least 5 different times today, and gone back and deleted every single one of them. Sometimes I really like the “writing” part of blogging – it gives me an outlet to talk about random things, or share stories with all of you, or just go on and on about everything and nothing.

I have a stack about 2 feet tall of cookbooks that are waiting to be reviewed. For some, the recipe is already made and I’m just waiting to actually type up the review, and others still need to be made and searched through. I try to keep things in order, but sometimes, a book comes in the mail, and it automatically goes to the top of the list.

Today’s cookbook, 400 Calories or Less with Our Best Bites, is one of those cookbooks that you will push to the front of the line.

I was sitting at the table a couple of weeks back, working on the week’s menu plan. I was looking through a magazine, and came across this Peanut Chicken Stir Fry. Of course I was drawn to it, these are flavors that are right up my alley. But this is a recipe that I would normally drool over and then skip, because I know my husband isn’t a fan of savory dishes with peanuts and/or peanut butter.

Originally posted April 12, 2011 – I feel like I just posted this summer salad for the first time yesterday – I couldn’t believe it when I went to make this again and realized that it was 4 years ago when I first posted it!! I had just moved from Blogger to WordPress, and it was a very exciting time here at Taste and Tell. :) My kids have been talking of nothing but summer lately, so even though it’s not summer yet, I think this salad will get you in the mood for the warmer months. This is one of my all-time favorite salads. If nothing else, you at least need to make this dressing. It’s to die for! If you are a fan of sweet and savory salads, this one is definitely for you.

I always get excited over cookbooks, but every once in awhile, a cookbook comes out that I know is going to be going right to the top of my favorites list. Today’s review – The Perfect Egg by Teri Lyn Fisher and Jenny Park of Spoon Fork Bacon – is one of those books.

If you have been on a cruise before, you know that one thing that is not lacking is food. Especially dessert.

And I will not complain. I do love my dessert after all! But what I don’t like is that there are so many choices and not enough time for them all. 😉

On my recent cruise with Princess Cruises, I had some amazing food. The first night, we ate in one of the dining rooms. It was a special menu that night to celebrate 50 years of cruising for Princess Cruise Lines. As I looked over the menu, I saw it – there on the dessert section was creme brulee. Creme brulee is one of my very favorite desserts. Which is why it was so hard to pass it up that night for the special dessert that was only being served that night.
