Tips for Starting a Blog

What We Learned in our First Year of Blogging Wouldn’t it be fun to start a Blog? Easy–make a dish once a week, snap an iPhone pic, type the recipe. We thought finding an extra half hour a week to slap together a blog post would […]

Cheesy Baked Grits and a Brunch Menu

Cheesy Baked Grits and a Brunch Menu

I don’t know about you, but pretty much the only meal I care about lately is brunch. After making and planning so many holiday dinners, all I want for dinner is leftovers or takeout, and the only time I have energy to actually cook is […]

Cranberry Margarita Floats

Cranberry Margarita Floats

This year, my Christmas gift to you is the following recipe. You might say that the cranberry sorbet recipe I posted several weeks ago is the gift that keeps on giving. We’ve put a couple scoops in a wine glass and poured Prosecco or champagne […]

Brown Butter Chocolate Chip Cookies

Brown Butter Chocolate Chip Cookies

There is nothing more comforting than a chocolate chip cookie. Maybe chicken noodle soup when you’re sick, I guess. But I’ve never met anyone who didn’t love a good CCC. I’ve had Granny’s recipe for these cookies on the docket for a long time now, […]

I first heard the term “friendsgiving” maybe ten years ago. I was still young and had energy to leave my house after 7:00 pm and didn’t really understand the concept. Why wouldn’t you just meet friends at a bar rather then fixing another big meal? […]

Cranberry Sorbet

Cranberry Sorbet

For many people, myself included, the cranberry sauce element of Thanksgiving dinner is quite the afterthought. Judge away, but I happen to love the cranberry jelly right out of the can, still in the shape of the can. Although it doesn’t look like much, I’ve […]
