Food Inspired by The Good Wife - Season Three

Recipes Inspired by Season Three of The Good Wife. Eat up!
Summer 2012 Hiatus | Post Date: May 10, 2012

The Good Wife summer hiatus is here and that means kicking back on a patio with friends, hosting pool parties or rooftop garden gatherings and barbecuing skewers of delicious morsels while watching the sun set.  Of course, while doing all of these things I'm also busy thinking Who could be lurking on the other side of Kalinda's door? and Who is going to be cast as her husband?  Sure, I could (should?) be using these glorious extra hours of sunlight for something productive like learning another language or reading War and Peace, but there will be time for those things later.  I mean, a girl has priorities.
Now, by my estimation, we have about 20 weeks to survive the hiatus, so I'm getting ready to make the most of those lazy, hazy, crazy days of summer by working my way through my favourite recipes from season three's Food Inspired by The Good Wife.  If I'm super efficient I'll even take a stab at that whole 'other language' thing... once my Executive Order 13224-inspired Red Velvet Cupcakes are perfected.

Thanks to JS over at Edible Life in YYC for working with me for the past six months on Food Inspired by The Good Wife.  I can't wait to team up for season four to see what kind of amazing treats will fuel The Good Wife culinary fire!


  1. I love it!
    It has been wonderful partnering up with you over the last season. The only thing better than "Good Wife Sundays" is your episode review on "Good Wife Monday."
    Cheers to season four and more fun in the kitchen!

    1. Oh for the love of Good Wife Sundays followed by the second best day of the week, Good Wife Mondays! I can only imagine the kind of drama and intrigue the writers are going to deliver in season four. I have a feeling we're going to be thoroughly inspired!
