The Lunatic gets grilled for Food Writer Friday, and she loved it!

Cravings of a Lunatic About Me Photo

Howdy folks. I'm still off whooping it up Florida. Today we're at Universal, fast-passing our way through the park if all goes well. It's been an interesting vacation. To say the very least. Hubs caught the flu. Then gave it to B-Dude. We're hoping  it doesn't hit me next. Considering how hard I am to travel with on a good day I'd hate to be the poor suckers travelling with me on a bad day. It's sure to end in tears. You know what else ended in tears recently? … [Read more...]

Cherry Chocolate Brownie Cupcakes, BDTK/Chocolate Moosey and Foodie Penpal

Hi folks. I took a hiatus from Burning Down The Kitchen recently. After the vacation of doom I just was not up to doing them. Plus I'm not going to lie, I've had a couple of interviews get forgotten about by the interviewee. So for a while there I was questioning whether I wanted to continue doing these interviews. But I'll be darned if I'm going to let someone else control my world. Yes they are a lot of work to organize but for me the payoff is awesome. I get to know other bloggers so much … [Read more...]

Samoas aka Coconut Caramel Cookie Bars | Burning Down The Kitchen with “From Cupcakes to Caviar”

Samoa Bars | Cravings of a Lunatic | Super easy to make and the perfect blend of chocolate and coconut!

Hi folks. We're still on the road, probably flying down some highway right now in an attempt to get mini-me home for school tomorrow. I'm highly doubtful she'll make that first class. I told her I would try but it's a long way from Alberta to Ontario so we'll see how things go. I cannot wait to sleep in my own bed. And hug all my pets and horsey. Probably after a much-needed nap though. Naps then hugs all around. … [Read more...]

Ultimate Turtle Brownies: Burning Down The Kitchen with That Skinny Chick Can Bake

Brownies

Welcome to another edition of Burning Down The Kitchen. I started this weekly series after I realized I had bookmarked a ton of recipes from fellow bloggers but had not been making the recipes. So I thought a fun way to make it more interactive would be to interview the person whose dish I wanted to make. One thing led to another and I started this series. It's a riot to do each week. I love learning more about the folks behind the blogs. It's incredibly fun to peek inside their minds and … [Read more...]

Burning Down The Kitchen with Epicurean Mom while making Chocolate Truffles

Truffles

Hi folks. For anyone new to my site, Burning Down The Kitchen is a weekly series I began to start trying out recipes I've bookmarked over the past year. I do another series called Lunatic Loves These Links where I pick what I love on the web. I found myself bookmarking a ton of recipes from other bloggers but not making them. So I decided to fix that by doing this series. I pick a recipe each week that I've bookmarked, I make that recipe and then I do a fun interview with the blogger who's … [Read more...]
