A Wedding in the family: Wedding Shower Part 1 – Jalapeno Poppers with Apricot Dipping Sauce

Wedding shower food-5948 web

What kind of dad would Yes!Chef! be if he didn’t make all the food for his only daughter’s wedding shower?  Well, he would still be a good dad.  And his daughter would still love him dearly.  But he wouldn’t have as much fun and the food at her shower would not be as tasty.

No More Wimpy Yam Fries or I Yam What I Yam

I love the idea of Yam/Sweet Potato Fries.  I just don’t like many of the recipes that I have found.  Reason:  Wimpiness.

I can’t think of any good reason anything or anybody should be wimpy.

Wimpy is not a good quality and is definitely not a good quality when it comes to food.  Name me one food that is described as wimpy and is something you would cook?  I can’t think of any.

“Fry” Day Pickles and Snow Days

Fried Pickles with Yogurt, Dill, Sriracha dipping sauce

Well, another couple of weeks have gone by and where  was I?  Oh yes!  I was snowed in with a friend of mine for a couple of days, so no pics of Yes!Chef! making tasty things last week.

Every year a group of 7 ladies that I have known for years visit me at my cabin in Tahoe for a weekend retreat.  We have been doing this for the last 9 years.  Last year they came in the beginning of October.  Some years they have visited in July or August.  This year, they waited until almost the last weekend in October.  The weather in Tahoe is always iffy in October and true to form, the first few days were balmy and beautiful.  It chilled down in the evening, but daytime was wonderful.
