I love to cook. I have over 100 cookbooks that I read for fun and inspiration. That said, I never follow the recipes. I like to see what base ingredients are necessary and then mess with them to see if I can improve upon the dish. I love serving these creations to those willing to risk all with me.

Sauces and soups are easy to play with and add to. The new thing I've decided to conquer is fondue. Style be damned. I don't care if it's trendy-it's delicious. And it's flexible and easy to do. I found an amazing recipe that was fairly simple to do from the Melting Pot restaurant. This link goes to Bourbon Bacon Cheddar Fondue. Yum. It can be doctored quite easily.
A great way to get out of your winter rut (admit it, we all fall into one or two ruts!) is to have friends over. I know, the house is messy, you're busy, you see dust bunnies the size of a VW bug under your table. Ignore it. Dim the lights, light some candles, uncork some wine and cook fondue. Your friends will love you for it and you'll have a great time. What better way to chase away the Old Man Winter blues?
