Tassimo - The latest technology for a better morning

"With the Tassimo machine and the Tassimo Discs (T Discs) you can make the hot drink you want, when you want it, at the touch of a button, in less than 60 seconds. It's truly amazing." (Tassimo marketing ploy)

A better morning is always on my agenda. It is the roughest part of my day. So, I ...the consumate consumer (consumer of kitchen gadgets, beauty products, magazines, etc.) bought into the Tassimo craze. Or maybe it isn't a craze, perhaps I am just morning crazy.

And let me tell you, they are not kidding. The Tassimo truly IS amazing. Latte, cappucino, espresso, coffee, name it. The perfect morning beverage is just a T-disc and a touch of a button away. It is my morning savior. And we don't have to pour half a pot of coffee down the drain each morning.

Another marketing note: Doesn't every beverage look better in a bodum glass?

I wonder if I will get reimbursed for this free advertisement?

Pico de gallo

Posted by Picasa

The vegetables were the inspiration. So colorful, so shiny, so attractive. I just had to take a photo. I got so wrapped up in the picture (and the idea for the blog) that I forgot to serve the pico with the fajita salad. (I'm happy to share recipes once I figure out all of these nifty blog tools.) Now, I have pico and no fajita salad. Leave it to my husband, the king of protein, to find the perfect use for an accessory to his morning egg routine. Delicious. Why didn't I think of it?

Welcome to my blog...

I am official. I have been wanting to do this for months now and never seem to take the time. Instead, I visit my online inspiration...a food blog. I devour smittenkitchen. It is the most entertaining location on the web. She is an outstanding writer, photographer and chef. I learned about smittenkitchen at noodletown, a great KC restaurant blog.

This won't be an all-food blog, but prepare yourselves...I will talk alot about food and food preparation. My hope is to write about life in the River Market; undeniably the best neighborhood in downtown Kansas City. We live, work and yes, we eat in the River Market. We fantasize about getting everything we need in the River Market and never leaving. If it weren't for Diet Coke and toilet paper...we could just about do it.
