Share-A-Chef Wednesdays

Hi! How is everyone doing on this Wednesday? I have a delicious treat for you today! This week on Share-A-Chef I will be featuring the blog, Chelsea'sMessyApron. This blog is based on Chelsea, the creator, who is the recipe developer, photographer, writer and taste tester. Her blog is adorable and her recipes are simple and delightful!

Oh, btw, I wanted to mention a note about my sister Lisa, who is the creator of PorkChop&Possum. She has newly renovated her blog and I want you ALL to check it out! It is amazing and it has a little bit of everything. There is something in her blog that everyone can connect too!

Share-A-Chef Wednesday

Happy Hump Day! I hope you all are doing well and enjoying the fact that the week is almost OVER!! Lately, I have been enjoying recipes that include apples and pumpkins since they are my favorite foods to bake with during the Fall. Recently my brother mentioned a new Chef to me and I figured I would share him with all of you this week. His name is "Gordon Ramsay" and I am sure ALL of you have heard of him. Gordon Ramsay was brought up in Stratford-Upon-Avon, England. He initially was going to be a football star but an injury put an end to that dream. So then he decided to go back to school to take a course in Hotel Management. With his exceptional talent and hard work Ramsay was able to train with some of the world's leading chefs that included, Albert Roux and Marco Pierre White. In 1993, Ramsay became a chef in London and years later Ramsay was able to open a string of successful restaurants across the world.

Share-A-Chef Wednesday

Hi Guys! So sorry that I didn't have this post up last week, but the hubby and I were dealing with some family issues that took over our lives for a bit. What can I say, Life Happens! Anyways, I am here this week to share with you another amazing Chef and another incredible recipe. This week I will be sharing a wonderful chef who goes by the name "Ina Garten". Ina started out working in the White House on Nuclear Energy Policy. After a while she began thinking "there must be more to life then this". She and her husband then decided on a whim to purchase a food store in the Hamptons. Two months later she became the owner of "Barefoot Contessa", a 400 square feet food store. Twenty years later Barefoot Contessa grew to 3,000 sq. ft. and had twenty cooks and twenty five more employees.  Ina currently lives in East Hampton, NY with her husband, Jeffrey and she is the host of Barefoot Contessa on The Food Network. So since we are coming into the Fall Seas…
