Rich & Spicy Bloody Mary MixSkip the bottled Bloody Mary mix next time and make your own! This makes a big batch but it can be scaled down easily. It has just the right balance of spices and is delicious enough to drink without the vodka too!

Hi, I'm Valerie
, the founder of CDKitchen. I started this website as a hobby over 17 years ago. I always enjoyed cooking and it seemed like a fitting topic for a website. As the website grew I found myself spending more time working and less time cooking creatively - my cooking was in a rut.
To keep our meals exciting I decided to start trying some of the recipes that had been submitted to CDKitchen by our huge following of both professional and home cooks. So, for the last ten years I've been making a weekly menu of new dishes to try each day. I never make a dish twice so I'm always testing something new. I try to review the recipes from a home cook's perspective to evaluate everything including taste, technique, and ingredients.
Check back each day to see my new cooking adventures.
