I am all about doing really simple, but really impressive, things in the kitchen. And so it was that I discovered that you can serve pretty much the world’s crappiest ice cream, and if you top it with homemade fudge sauce, you are a culinary wizard in the eyes of your friends and family.
I have read more than my share of financial advice. And amid other important factors such as “earn more money” or “invest that money” is the all-important “spend less money.” In these past several lean years, I’ve gotten pretty good at cutting back costs and expenses. But one thing I can’t seem to quit is […]
This is so simple and easy that now that I’m telling you about it, you no longer have any excuse to buy roasted peppers in a jar. Sorry.

I’ve always loved olive oil. I’m half Italian; it kind of comes with the territory. I grew up used to it being in pasta sauces, drizzled on dishes, and placed in nice glass bottles on the table to be used for dipping bread.
