Mixing It Up

Making Great Eats an Experience

Do you make gourmet meals at home instead of going out? This includes breakfast, lunch, dinner, and snacks. I enjoy the experience. Plus it is way more fun with a partner in crime when it comes to messing up the kitchen. Experimenting in the kitchen is an experience and with practice comes great eats!

I am notrious in burning bread and can even screw up french toast. I can make a mean wallpaper paste out of rice and love lifting the lid on the pot and stirring. I know Shame On Me! I think for the most part I make great eats though, but it comes with patience and practice. Thank Goodness for Peanut Butter; it has my back everytime!


I enjoy having a partner in crime when it comes to cooking and it can be a blast if I can just stay out of the way! I love the kitchen gadgets too. The best part of cooking is getting to EAT what you make!

You can take the food experience to the next level by getting into tastings and pairings!


I love trying and tasting new foods. Do not forget about the drinks element either; non-alcoholic or alcoholic.

Make the grocery store or your favorite foodie/drink place a part of the experience! Ask the butcher or fishmonger how to prepare and cook meat, fish or seafood. Ask for a sample of cheese and/or meat. Explore the salad bar or olive bar. Ask the bakery for a bread or dessert recommendation. Discover the produce section and seek out lettuces, herbs, veggies, and fruits. I love trolling the frozen treats section to see if anything strikes my fancy too.

How do you know if you like something unless you give it a taste, right!


I love experimenting when it comes to pairing eats and drinks. Try a dark beer with a hard, creamy cheese. White or Red wine with fish and seafood. Place some nuts and dark chocolate on the cheese tray. The best part of pairing is sharing, especially with your greatest someone!

Dishware & Glassware

Set the Ambience with a tablecloth and minimal decoration as well as adding in some stylish pieces of dishware and glassware! You do not have to spend a lot and you do not have to have everything matchy matchy either. I feel it adds to the experience and amps it up. Going to make a Gourmet Meal might as well Go All the Way with the Experience, right!

Here’s to Having FUN When It Comes to Messing Up the Kitchen!!!
