Welcome! I'm a new Pittsburgher and mom who is untrained in both life and cooking, but that just makes them both more exciting!

Macy's Culinary Council event with Tom Douglas THIS WEEKEND!

To all my friends in Pittsburgh, I have such a sweet event to tell you about.

Tom Douglas (the three-time James Beard award winner - oh my!) is going to be at the downtown Macy's on Saturday, May 18th, at 12:30pm to do a cooking demonstration with fresh, local ingredients.  I'm sure it will be amazing.  And he's going to be signing copies of new new book, The Dahlia Bakery Cookbook.

Unfortunately, I can't go to it, so I need you to be my eyes and ears.  My dear friend, Allie, decided that 2013 is a great year to have a baby, and Jake, Lily, and I will be in New Jersey celebrating his impending arrival.  But YOU should go and you tell me all about it!

Oh man, WHY must Allie be having a baby shower this weekend?  This is so selfish of her.  Her baby doesn't even have ONE James Beard award yet, much less three.  (Just kidding, Allie, I'm going to love him even if his greatest culinary talent is making ramen noodles at 2am on a Saturday night.)

But aaaaanyway, click here for more details about the cooking demo and to RSVP: http://new.pitchengine.com/pitches/b54986a0-1b4e-4e16-b47b-620b418e387a

And for real, if you are able to make it, give me all the details about how it is.  I just might hunt Tom down at the next city on his tour so that I don't have to miss all the fun!
