VOODOO DOLL TOOTHPICK HOLDER

VOODOO DOLL TOOTHPICK HOLDER

Here’s a classic ‘never knew you needed it until you saw it’ item. This Voodoo Man toothpick holder was acquired at Crescent City Cooking School in New Orleans’ French Quarter.  This Cajun cooking school and emporium is located on Chartres Street; the piece itself seems more from the corner of Whimsy and Kitsch. “Perfect for finger food, […]

BERTHA’S NUTCAKE

Here’s a long overdue shout out to Debbie Goldsmith, a longtime Assoc. Food Director at the Good Housekeeping Institute. Debbie sent in this recipe a while back during our black walnut enthusiasm period, which in turn was sparked by another SpecD reader, Susan Kirkpatrick.
