Welcome to My Kitchen
I’m Mary Sage, home cook, budding author, untrained but enthusiastic chef. I started blogging about food almost five years ago when I started taking cooking classes. I took cooking classes everywhere — the Le Cordon Bleu College, Chateau Elan, our local high schools, a couple of stores. If they held a class within driving distance, I took it.
What I learned was that great chef’s have good technique, good tools, and they know how to use spices and seasoning.
Come join me on a cooking adventure. Some things work out great; some not so much. But we can learn and explore together.

The perfect cooked egg is the most difficult task in the kitchen and most necessary. An under cooked egg is not appetizing. An over cooked egg — scrambled or otherwise — is inedible. Poached eggs are an elegant breakfast or dinner. When … Continue reading
This fast and easy zucchini bread knocks it out of the park for flavor and healthy benefits! This is adapted from a recipe on Food.com, but I’ve changed out the oil and sugar to make it even healthier. To switch … Continue reading
