Welcome to Whit’s Amuse Bouche!

My name is Whitney and I am a comfort food enthusiast and locavore. I currently live in Columbus, OH with my Husband, Brian (Dad), and my two cats, Chloe and Lady Buck-Jive. (B.J.)

Whit’s Amuse Bouche is your one stop shop for all things food, booze, and do-it-yourself craftery.  Unless you’re Emily Post, then you are probably horrified.  My diet consists mainly of red wine, chocolate, cheese, carbs, and more carbs. And more red wine.

What does “Amuse Bouche” mean?

If I had a dollar for every time someone asked me this question, I’d have many superfluous kitchen gadgets. (Oh, wait…)  While an Amuse Bouche is a one bite appetizer that many chefs will share to set the tone of their meal, it also literally means amused mouth in French.  This blog is exactly that.  A small (albeit hysterical) bite of my life.

  3. I stumbled upon your site yesterday via Pinterest and spent the day going back through all of your recipes and old post…flipping amazing!

  6. Hi! Found your site a few weeks ago and fell in love with your restaurant style steak. Returned to try it and the link to it no longer works. Please post it back – it sounded delicious!

  7. Hi! Your fantastic restaurant style steak recipe has disappeared from your site. Any chance of recovering it? It sounded great!

  8. I literally just woke my sleeping husband and son two rooms away, laughing as I read. We are not talking about that dainty bit of snikering that comes from lovely waif-like girls in pearls and pumps. This was a red-cheeked, leathery drunk fisherman’s guffaw. Blurry-eyed husband just asked, “Why are you still up – food or shoes?” Oh, he knows me so well… Love him of course, but I really LOVE your blog.

  11. Whit, I have to say, every one of your recipes that I have tried have been a complete success with my family (and I have 4 kids). But… I need help with your classic cupcake recipe. They deflated and I don’t know what wrong. I used all the ingredients indicated, as well as the right amounts. Please Help!! We really want to try these.
