Toasted Ciabatta with Ricotta and Sugar Snap Peas

The past seven days have been a bunch of postpartum “firsts” for me. Last week I cared and cooked for houseguests (instead of the other way around), watched my first live rugby match, hosted a small brunch gathering, attended my ladies book(wine) club, took baby P to the grocery store with me, and overall, felt like a normal human being again. PHEW, …

Monkey Bread

Let me begin by saying, this is not from scratch, not even remotely.  I’ve thrown scratch out the window and replaced it with ease these past couple of months… I’ll tell you what, this pregnancy thing is not all it’s cracked up to be… I’m 35 1/2 weeks preggo and I think I’ve spent more time …

Poppy Seed Banana Bread

The Hubs told me the other day he’s been buying SOME OTHER LADY’S banana bread on campus lately as a mid-morning snack.  I felt as if I’d been slapped.  Ok, so I haven’t baked in a while, but still!?  I definitely had some rotten bananas on hand this week.  Couple my rotten bananas with The Hubs eating some other …

Pineapple Coconut Smoothie

I must miss the tropical paradise of St. Martin just a wee bit, because I have seriously been craving Caribbean pineapple coconut drinks!  With a forecasted low in the 30’s tomorrow morning, I’m hoping it’s possible to will Spring to arrive faster if I have a tropical drink in my hand.  When I first made this …

Everything Bagels

I’ve been missing Klein’s bagels lately.  The Nashville food scene is blowing up with so many more dining options than ever before, and for that I am eternally grateful.  Bagels, however, are another story.  Where oh where do you find a decent bagel in this town?  With only one non-chain nearby option for bagels, I …

Swiss Chard Hash

St. Patrick’s day has a special place in my heart because one of my most favorite people on the planet shares her birthday with the holiday.  I dedicate this recipe to my sister, Patrice, who also happens to be the nicest, most selfless person in my family.  She devotes all her time to her kids, …

St. Martin: Part Un, Grand Case

Last week The Hubs and I returned to beautiful St. Martin for a much needed vacation of decompression.  St. Martin is a tiny island in the middle of the Caribbean ocean, 35 square miles small.  Divided into two parts, the Dutch side and the French side, St. Martin is known for being the culinary capitol …

Julia’s Crêpes

The first time I ever ate a crêpe was on my honeymoon two years ago in St. Martin.  The Hubs and I were lucky enough to have been given the use of a bridesmaid’s timeshare as a wedding gift (Thank you RG!) and we quickly fell in love with the island’s food, white sand beaches, …

Yeast Nashville Bakery

I popped out of bed this morning and remembered it was the Grand Opening day for the newest bakery in town, Yeast Nashville.  While securing and preparing their premises, they’ve been hawking their goods at the local farmer’s markets, on record store day, and other various places around town.  I want to support this husband …
