September 12th is National Chocolate Milkshake Day!

Foodimentary - National Food Holidays

  1. Milkshakes got their name from being served in bars. If the customer enjoyed the milkshake, he shook hands with the bartender. If not, the bartender didn’t get a tip.
  2. Malted milk powder was invented in 1897 by James and William Horlick, but it was Ivar Coulson, a soda jerk for a Walgreen’s drug store, who first added it to milkshakes in 1922. This created the malted milkshake or just plain “malt.”
  3. Steven Poplawski invented the electric blender in 1922 just for milkshakes. Before that, the effort of shaking them up must have required a lot of upper body motion.
  4. It’d take 3,200,000 average-sized milkshakes to fill up an Olympic-sized pool. How fast do you think Michael Phelps could swim in that?
  5. Australians can still buy traditional milkshakes in “milk bars,” which are much like old-fashioned drugstores with counter service. They’re usually served still in the steel cup, but may be…

Garden Bridge Reflections


A rare site when the bridge is empty. However, hurricane Irma was nearby so that might have helped.

Breakfast Sliders

What's for Dinner Moms?

My family lives breakfast for dinner every once in a while. I like breakfasts for dinner because they tend to be super easy and everyone loves it! These sliders are a take off on several other sliders I have made including Meatball sliders, Reuben sliders (one of my most popular recipes to date), and of course the original slider sandwich recipe.


These were a hit just as I expected. The hardest part? Scrambling 10 eggs. My daughter put these together in about 15 minutes.  The strangest part to her was the topping for the rolls but once I convinced her to try it she was so glad she did. It gives the rolls even more flavor than you expect them to have.

Tip: When scrambling the eggs try not to break them up into small pieces as you normally do when cooking them. You want nice, large, fluffy chunks…

Roast Duck with Winter Vegetables

The Domestic Man

Guess what? It’s getting noticeably cooler here in Virginia, which means it’s just about roasting weather. I love making roast dishes once the temperatures dip, because it’s an easy (and aromatic) way to warm up the kitchen during chilly weather. In truth, I developed this dish a few months ago, when I was working on a particular chapter for my upcoming cookbook, but decided to hold off on sharing this recipe until we had appropriate weather.

Roasting duck can be daunting. I know this because I spent the first 30 years of my life not roasting any ducks, because it seemed like an intimidating bird to cook (although to be fair, I wasn’t roasting much of anything during the first 16 years of my life). Turns out roasting duck is in many ways more appealing than roasting chicken, because a) the whole duck could basically be classified as “dark meat”…
