Easy Sunday Pot Roast

When I make this easy Sunday pot roast, it fills the house with a warm, rich beefy smell that immediately makes me think of my Nana.  My Nana made pot roast all the time; even in the middle of summer which is what Nashville feels like this week despite it now officially being Fall.  TOO HOT!  Anyway, …

How to Spatchcock a Chicken

Isn’t ‘spatchcock’ a super fun word to say?  This chicken recipe boasts (and roasts!) a whole succulent chicken in only 40 minutes flat!  Using just olive oil, salt and pepper, you too, can create your own chicken masterpiece.  You know how most roast chicken recipes tell you to tie strings snugly around the bird’s body and legs, compacting …

Turkey meatballs with Zoodles and Noodles

If the month of March’s slogan is, “comes in like a Lion”,  I think January’s slogan should be, “comes in like a slap”!  Let’s face it, we just finished almost two straight months of gluttony; Thanksgiving dinner, Thanksgiving leftovers, Christmas cookies, multiple holiday parties and feasts (more leftovers) and don’t forget something lavish for NYE, too!  Now all of a …

Buttery Pretzel Bites

Is it just me, or is everyone in a bigger rush than ever this year?  It seemed like we hadn’t even turned the Halloween corner into November and I was getting Christmas catalogues and seeing lawns already decorated with Rudolph and Santa.  I went to the mall at the beginning of this month and it …

Saveur’s December Cover: Apple Pandowdy

This is a wonderful recipe to bring to Thanksgiving.  It’s great because it will stay warm for an hour after you remove it from the oven!  Apple Pandowdy, what a silly name, eh?  I had to look up what the hell a pandowdy was, and frankly I think this old timey dessert was definitely before …
