On Emily’s blog, Cleanliness is Next to Godliness, you will see her constant attempts to make meals from scratch that are full of love, as her mother and grandmothers have done. Emily’s dream is to get back to the basics with the way we eat and show her readers that anybody can cook a great meal from scratch, even if you have a full-time job! Emily has no formal culinary training; has learned all that she knows about food through watching her mother cook over the years, as well as through her own trial and error. Growing up in a home where the kitchen was always the gathering place, Emily has learned that the most spectacular recipes are those that are time-tried and passed down from generation to generation. Head over heels in love with food, Emily’s passion for food knows no bounds and there is not a moment that passes, where her mind is focused upon anything other than food. As part of the ShopRite blog panel, Emily is excited to share her passion of food with others and write about ShopRite products, which she describes as a best kept secret. Emily resides in Philadelphia and shops at the ShopRite of Roxborough.

My Mom’s Tomato Soup

There are fewer smells that transport me back to childhood and comfort faster than onions sautéing in butter. Read More »

Southern Style Hamburgers

Posted by , May 4th, 2013

There are few things in this world that I love more than a good hamburger. It’s true! My husband can attest to this fact. When we first began dating, hamburgers seemed to be the only thing that I would order when we were out for dinner. Amusingly enough, I wasn’t the one who made this realization. My love has me blind.

Not only do I love my hamburgers, but piling on a plethora of toppings makes me undeniably happy. Read More »

But I Wanted A Cupcake Bars

Posted by , October 3rd, 2012

I have confidence that I am not alone in this great big world when I say that I have occasional late-night snack attacks. I recently had one in which all I wanted was a cupcake.  I opened my refrigerator door, cupboards, pantry, and much to my chagrin no cupcake appeared.  I even looked under the kitchen sink, just in case.

I searched my house high and low, and looked through my window into my neighbor’s kitchen to see if perhaps she had foolishly placed a tray of freshly baked cupcakes in the window to cool. Read More »

Gnocchi with Arugula and Sun-Dried Tomatoes

Posted by , June 22nd, 2012

G.K. Chesterton is quoted as saying that ”music with dinner is an insult both to the cook and the violinist.”

Ah yes, that is an interesting notion, Mr. Chesterton. However, I’d like to challenge your statement to a certain degree: What if the cook is the one putting on the show. And, by a show, I mean by singing and dancing about the room. Read More »

Holiday Bark (Shown: Heath Chocolate)

Posted by , December 21st, 2011

I love to bake. It is one of my favorite things to do. At one point in time, I was baking two loaves of sandwich bread a week for my husband. Love. To. Bake.

As you can imagine, this time of year, become incredibly excited to spend as much time putting together sweet creations, while trying my best not to eat the batter before it goes into the oven. Read More »

Thinking Outside of the Pizza Box

Posted by , December 8th, 2011

The period between November to January is a time of greatness. Great parties. Great friends. Great foods. Great amounts of pounds. (We will ignore the pounds for now).
Someone invites you over for a dinner party, and asks that you bring an appetizer. You want to bring something easy, but not ‘typical.’

Then, a mini freak-out session commences. Never fear! Read More »

A Pasta Salad for All Seasons!

Posted by , September 22nd, 2011

It’s late September and Labor Day has come and long gone, so all things summerish should go too, right?
Wrong!

Well, except for maybe your white pants, since the jury is still out as to whether that is socially acceptable, I’d air on the side of caution.

K. But, back to enjoying summer year’ round …

East Meets West: General Tsao’s Ratatouille

Posted by , August 5th, 2011

General Tsao. Who was he? Perhaps a great warrior? Or maybe a great chicken cooker? The best karaoke singer of the East?

I guess we’ll never know, but one thing is for sure: General Tsao’s chicken is an American-Chinese dish that most people love eating, but almost immediately regret consuming after. It’s heavy and sooo full of sodium. Read More »

Grilled Pound Cake (With A Mineral Water Twist)

Posted by , July 15th, 2011

The Fourth of July, BBQs, long hot days …  we are smack in the heat of summer! Many of us will be spending a lot of time outside grilling, running around playing kick the can or wiffle ball, and eating red white and blue popsicles that will inevitably melt before you finish it and get all over your chin. Ah … that’s livin’! Read More »

From My Family to Yours: Kielbasa, Bell Peppers, and Onions

Posted by , June 1st, 2011

“ Happiness is having a large, loving, caring, close-knit family in another city.” George Burns

It is no secret: you can’t pick your family members. No sir! It is like the wise man once said, “you can pick your friends and you can pick your nose, but you can’t pick your friends’…” well, you get the picture. The same goes with family! Read More »
