Sometimes I have nothing to say…

I feel that as a food blogger (ack! I said it!) I am expected to have a lot of funny anecdotes and tons of preamble leading up to the recipe I'm posting. But sometimes I really do not have anything to say about the recipe. Was it tasty, yummy, delicious? You betcha! But not all of my recipes have a story other than I was hungry and had those ingredients in my refrigerator so I came up with whatever it was I was posting. Does that make me a bad food blogger? I'm not sure, but I really ...

My first BBQ Competition recap, KCBS fun!

Last year when we heard about the BBQ Competition in our hometown Santa Clara, we thought "Hey! Let's enter next year."  I really didn't think we would enter, but as it came up, my husband and son were so excited that I took the plunge and entered the contest. Once I did that, my husband went a little crazy when we made the decision and bought this... Once he bought that, I was stuck! I had to go through with it. So, go through with it we did. I tried out a couple new made up recipes ...

Dish Ditty Recipes: A year of cooking in review

Well, it's been one year since my first post here on Dish Ditty Recipes. When I started this site, I had a goal of 200 recipes for the year.  I thought that was going to be tough to do as that's a little more than a recipe every other day. But, that number was hit several months ago, to my own surprise. So, how many recipes did I post? I posted over 240 recipes, 20 articles, 12 little ditties, and a dozen more other articles like videos and quotes. Wow. I can't believe I posted that ...

Finding inspiration… from a movie?

After months of having the Julie & Julia dvd sitting on my TV stand, I finally decided to watch it last weekend. My husband had seen it and said I would enjoy it since the movie is about a food blogger and that I would feel a connection to the movie. So, did I? I'd have to say yes, I did feel a connection to Julie. Some of the emotions that Julie went through in the movie, wondering if anyone was reading her posts, if what she was doing mattered, are thoughts that have crossed my mind as ...

I admit it… I sometimes do semi-homemade

There's nothing wrong with Semi-Homemade That's right. I said it. I have no problems with using shortcuts (like jar marinara sauce) to make my weeknights easier while still providing a home cooked meal to my family. Not everyone can make their dinners 100% home made and organic every night. Not only is that time consuming, but it can also be expensive. So, instead, I pick and choose what I feel makes sense to be organic, homemade, etc. Some things are so quick and easy that it doesn't ...

My new must-stop BBQ joint on the way to South Lake Tahoe off 50 in Placerville

Hog Wild BBQ Restaurant in Placerville, CA Who would have thought that a BBQ joint off of 50 heading to South Lake Tahoe California in Placerville would be so amazingly good that I now will make sure I stop at Hog Wild BBQ whenever we are going to/from Tahoe. To start, my husband likes to find 'local flavor' when we go on trips. Usually this means a quaint diner that the locals like to frequent. So this last Saturday when we were on our way home from South Lake Tahoe, we had planned on ...
