I know there are a lot of people out there who wish they could always have a home cooked meal, but feel they just don’t have the time to cook. Instead, they resort to ordering take-out or running through the drive-thru on their way home from work. I get it. I mean, [...]
Isn’t it crazy how the weather so closely relates to the foods we crave and cook? I’m not just talking about the ingredients that are in season, although they definitely play a major role in the food that we choose to eat. I’m talking about what we crave internally. During the summer it’s all [...]
I’ve had chicken waldorf on the brain for about 2 weeks now. There’s this little deli near work that Mr. Big Flavors and I eat at about once a week. Sue’s Deli, it’s called. And while I tend to love all of the items on their menu (avocado wrap, black [...]
It’s the final installment in our Little Kitchen, Big Flavors chilled soup trilogy, and personally I believe we’ve saved the best for last.

It’s going to get close to 100 degrees today. That’s almost unheard of in this city. Right? When you hear about Buffalo’s weather, it’s always about the lake effect snow or the October Storm of 2006. Oh, and of course, that darned blizzard of ’77.
