Stop Shkoff Rewind For A Good Cause With The Bitchin Kitchen Crew

We interrupt the 12 Days of Giftmas to bring a little levity to your holiday playlist all for a good cause, of course.  Nadia G. and the Bitchin’ Kitchen crew have done it again with a killer comedy holiday tune and video, A Bitchin’ Christmas, that will have you putting it on repeat. I mean, when you hear “It’s Christmas Time.  Let’s Drink Some Wine!” – how can you not sing along, right?

A Bitchin’ Christmas features cameos from foodie faves like Andrew Zimmern, Kelsey Nixon, Alie & Georgia, Guy Fieri and more along with hijinks from Panos, Hans and The Spice Agent who give a whole new meaning to the term “Carolers”.  Plus, when you purchase A Bitchin Christmas from iTunes, you are benefiting Meals on Wheels.  Purchasing with a purpose – now that’s the holiday spirit!

So, grab that ugly sweater, stop, shkoff, rewind and support a great cause!

Cooking ‘Round The Web – Week Ending Nov. 6th

What a crazy November it’s been so far, and it’s only the end of the first week. Here are a few posts that got my attention and I wanted to share with y’all while I was catching up on my Blog Reader.

One of my fave people on Twitter is @StilettoChef aka Candice Kumai from, you guessed it, Anywhoo, her blog is fab, but even better was this great article that she wrote, Pantry Staples: What To Keep On Hand After Life With Mom, is something I wish I had when I first embarked on my culinary adventures. Moms, please bookmark and give to your kids when they get ready to leave the nest – you will be their culinary hero!

Our gal, Manouschka from SingleServingBytes/Food Network’s Private Chefs of Beverly Hills not only interviewed Cooking Channel’s rockin’ Nadia G from Bitchin’ Kitchen but also is the Bitchin’ Babe over at Nadia’s site, Bitchin’

Cooking With Amy did a great interview with one of my fave food writers, Dianne Jacob ( on “Why Do YOU Cook, Dianne Jacob?”

Lesli from And Her Little Dog Too did a fabulous write-up on the Philadelphia Food & Wine Festival and her pics – love love love! I went the day prior with Jen from One Curly Fry In A Box Of The Regular and let’s just say there was so much to do and see, one day isn’t enough, imo!

Speaking of Jen @ One Curly Fry In A Box Of The Regular, she just embarked on an Intermediate Pastry Arts course at Philadelphia’s Restaurant School and you have got to bookmark her blog to see how the course goes.  This week: Breads.

Butter My Kitchen had an amazing “Tip for a Day” that I have implemented immediately in my kitchen. God knows, as a recovering entertainment publicist, there is no shortage of Sharpies in my house (hello – do you know how many sharpies one has to bring to a gig “just in case” the fans walk off with them, the artists use them as “chew toys”, etc. – seriously, Staples and I were BFF for a while).

Jewels From The Roving Stove is spotlighting “A Course In Weight Loss – What Have You Got To Lose?” and the comments on this post are a MUST READ!

Some FABULOUS pumpkin recipes that I have bookmarked for future experimentation:

And because every gal needs a little chocolate to round out the week:

  • Sugar Plum’s Deep Chocolate Pudding
