Nope, I don’t have any Chocablock Cookies for you today. And, I don’t have any steamed puddings either. I’m really sorry about that, but life has kind of smacked me in the head this past week and I just never found the time to make them.  My work schedule has been kind of crazy and Mr. SGCC has been out of town A LOT, so I’ve been pulling double duty both at home and at the office.  Plus, I’ve got a brand new project over here that is taking up a ton of my time and attention!  Allow me to introduce you all to our new little addition.

And, sometimes we’ll just go out.  Last Friday night, though, the weather sucked.  It was rainy, …

Seafood Pasta alla Buzara

Friday, January 15, 201032 Comments

The other day I was shopping at my neighborhood supermarket, looking for a little dinner inspiration.  I meandered past the seafood department without a thought.  Usually, I don’t even bother to look in that direction.  I live in Florida, less than a mile from the Gulf of Mexico.  The …
