Welcome to Kitchen Mischief…the brainchild of two foodies who love to cook and have fun trying. As our brightly colored masthead teases, we’re here to blog about mishaps and masterpieces in the kitchen. Why, you ask? Keep reading.

The Masterpieces
When you get it right, it’s an awesome feeling. A fantastic dinner, a memorable birthday cake, the dip that everyone raves about—that makes you feel good, because you’re making other people feel good. That’s what we love and hope to share here—food that makes an impact.

The Mishaps
Speaking of impact…have you ever dumped a two-pound tub of blue cheese directly in your face? Matthew has. Or have you ever deglazed your pan with brandy—on high heat—and consequently set your head on fire? Josh has. It was funny. After the burns healed. The point is that we are not professionals…we make mistakes. And sometimes that shit is funny.

The Masterminds
Matthew and Josh are friends from way back. Matthew is totally the lovechild of Barefoot Contessa and Alton Brown, except he is much slimmer and has a full head of hair (bitch). Look for his posts to feature great recipes, helpful tips, and fun presentation ideas. Josh is frantic, easily distractible, and loves to get “creative” in the kitchen. This can go one of two ways…AWESOME! …or… DISASTER! Or, if you have a sense of humor, AWESOME DISASTER! His posts will be more like a culinary diary…The Good, the BAD, and the Funny.

That pretty much sums it up. We plan to post at least twice a week, so keep coming back for more tasty treats! We hope to inspire you to get into your kitchen and create some mischief of your own!

      I am so proud of you for noticing my Alton Brown salt cellar. I also have those plunger measuring cups. I am such a cooking nerd.

      Hey Becky! Thanks for your sweet comment! I always remember May being very calm in the kitchen…she could have all four stove eyes going, the oven, the microwave, and the sink running and never bat and eye. Of course, something might occasionally catch fire, but she could handle that, too!
