Just for Fun
Hello out there! I’ve been gone for so long! So much has happened. So little has happened. So let’s sum things up — I believe I mentioned before that I left corporate America (or it left me — still not 100% sure on that one). I focused on getting my health right, which I thought was important. Finding another job was more daunting that I thought, but I finally got a chance to work at the amazing Zingerman’s Bakehouse over the holidays. It was a fabulous experience! I also decided to formalize my training and head back to culinary school. Now I just need to find a paying gig to work with my schedule. I can try to get my bakery up and running again, but I don’t exactly have a lot to devote to my advertising budget. Got something in the works which would start in a few months, but a paycheck in the meantime would be helpful. I got some other plans in the works, so we will see what pans out. Right now I am focusing on school and the NCAA basketball tournament (priorities!). I’m a little freaked out that almost every analyst out there is picking either my Florida Gators or my Michigan State Spartans to win it all. Hoping that isn’t a jinx! But this is a nice distraction from my everything-is-up-in-the-air life. I’ll be here more often because I miss blogging and writing. I’ll need to schedule some regular time and devote it to Jereme’s Kitchen. Maybe that will help get my ass in gear.
Anyhoo, the saga continues. . . .
It’s Friday, Friday. Gotta get down on Friday. Fun fun fun fun fun fun. Alright, enough of that horrible song. It’s lucky number 7 for this episode! And since this is the last Friday before Halloween, I thought this would be a fun one to post.
Be safe everybody when you carve up your pumpkins!
Happy Friday, everybody! It’s Friday and that means two things: 1) the weekend is almost upon us, and 2) more foodie funnies are heading your way. Now this one really rings true for me. I’m glad that I’m not the only one!
Have a safe weekend y’all! And don’t forget to follow me on Facebook!
Hey y’all! I’ve had a weird week, and not in a good way. I had a weird interview followed by back-to-back days of unrelated volleyball injuries. Huzzah! Well, watching this video made me feel better. It is fall and if you remember my post from a couple of weeks back, it is time for Pumpkin-Spice everything! This video shows how some people might feel about that. And yes, I did post this on Facebook yesterday, but I liked it so much I wanted to share it here.
Now it’s probably too late in the season for corn, but getting some fresh corn is absolutely amazing. If you’re still in season, head down to your farmer’s/farmers market and get yourself some. Here’s an old post of mine with a recipe for some corn on the grill.
And just a reminder for folks, these are just some images that I either find on the Interwebs or that have been sent to me. So I do not own them and will gladly take them down if it becomes problematic. Just don’t be jerks about it. You know who you are.
I’m on Facebook, too! Happy Friday, y’all!
Bonus post! Aren’t you excited? And you thought Friday the 13th is bad luck! Just saw this yesterday on the blog by Amy Blandes and just had to share. This is my favorite time of year. Check out this post from a couple of weeks ago which helps explain why. It just makes me think of cozying up with friends and family with a lot of food and booze. And it’s good to celebrate with your peeps!
But it’s not just the time for pumpkin this and pumpkin that. There’s pumpkin-pie-spice-flavored everything, too. Like those M&Ms that I’ve never seen before. Oh well, Happy Friday!
Episode 2!!! So exciting!!! Now this is a dilemma that I always have. Is it just me?
A friend of mine did just recently let me know that there is a such thing as Pumpkin Spice M&Ms. Have not seen any around; I will still be hunting around for them. Anyone else try them before?

It’s an exciting day here in the Kitchen! Well, actually I’m in the dining room, but that’s beside the point. It’s Friday and the start of the weekend (a long Labor Day Weekend mind you)! And what’s a better way to start the weekend than with a little fun! Of course, since this is Jereme’s Kitchen, why not focus on food? Now I’ve done a couple of posts like this before (and I’ll probably show some of those again), but it was sporadic at best. This time I’ll do my utmost to make this a regular feature.
These are just some things that I’ve found perusing the Interwebs or that have been sent to me because folks thought I could appreciate them. So I thought that I’d share this goodness with my faithful readers. Maybe you’ll find a bit of yourselves in these posts. Enjoy!

Fall is my favorite time of year. I love everything about it — the smells, the cooler days, the crisper nights, the colors, the pies, Halloween, Thanksgiving, volleyball and football start up again — what’s not to love? Alright, I admit there is one thing I don’t like — cleaning up all those damn leaves on my property. I own about an acre of land with maybe 20 giant oak trees. So the leaves can pile up and pile up quickly. And unlike in some neighboring cities, I can’t just push my leaves into the road, so I either have to do it myself or hire someone else to do it. But that’s a whole other issue. . .
Anyhoo, I saw this the other day on Facebook and wanted to share. This appeared on my feed from the magazine Midwest Living. This sums up everything that is awesome about Fall and I wanted to share it with y’all. What do y’all like about Autumn? Just let me know — either here or on Facebook! I gots a recipe for some Gluten-Free Rocky Road Brownies coming up later this week, and hopefully some other fun stuff.
