Maple Roasted Carrots

Thanksgiving tidbit #1 that you didn’t know about me: I hate cooked carrots.  Like, nope, no thank-you, I only like ’em raw.  I can remember being six years old and secretly palming my mom’s cooked carrots under the table to Brandy, the family golden retriever (sorry mom).   Leave it to Ina Garten to make cooked carrots not only palatable, but so downright …

Porky Rice Bowls

I feel like we have just gotten into the swing of all this heat and suddenly the temps are (sort of) dropping, the days are getting shorter and Baby P is this new upwardly mobile, vocal little human.  I feel like we have eaten a lot of awesome things this summer that I was lax on posting about, because, well, LIFE.  This refreshing, …

cold-brewed strawberry orange tea

I’ve got strawberry fever and the cure is to put them in EVERYTHING! This fruit-infused tea is a refreshing and summery Memorial Day treat well worth the 24 hour wait! Cold-brewed fruit-infused tea is great for using up all the weird tea left behind by our visiting parents.  They buy different tea each visit yet never drink it because they …

gluten-free (and crazy good) waffles

Ok, ok, before you head for the hills because these waffles are gluten-free, please know it is a happy coincidence!  Since trying the crispiest-ever-rice-flour-coated-fried-chicken at Pinewood Social, I’ve been wanting to play around with rice flour.  If it can make chicken taste that good, what else can it do?  Well let me tell you, the rice …

Chocolate Covered Potato Chips

A couple of weeks ago I had a good friend and client ask me if I had yet come out of “First Year hiding”. He explained the strange process a couple experiences when you have baby number one; you disappear socially for about a year. You lose track of everyone you hung out with before …

Sherbet in Grapefruit Cups

It’s that time of Tennessee summer for me.  That “I-won’t-blow-dry-my-hair-anymore-because-it’s-too-dang-hot-outside” time of summer.  Jeans have been retired to the back corner of my closet.  My hair has permanent ponytail kink because again, it’s just too dang hot to have hair on your neck.  It’s so swelteringly humid it makes me not want to cook anything.  In fact, …

Potato Dominoes

Francis Mallmann’s potato domino recipe elevates potatoes to something other worldly. He turns an ordinary potato into a crisp yet tender, super savory, glorious thing. It’s like eating an awesome hot potato chip with the softest insides and the crispiest outsides. Mailman’s recipe solidifies my ongoing love for the potato. Is there anything this tuber can’t deliciously …

Cranberry Sauce!

Ok, so cranberry sauce… Growing up, I never touched it, as it was totally just some wobbly jello-y looking thing that slithered out of a can.  I didn’t bother with it because it took up valuable real estate that could be used for more stuffing on my Thanksgiving plate.  I recently found this recipe on-line for the …

Genovese Basil Pesto

Last Summer I posted my tired and true pesto recipe.  I’ve been making my pesto recipe for so long, I could probably make it with my eyes closed (though I do not recommend doing this).  I stumbled across a recipe for Genovese basil pesto in the 2013 July/Aug issue of La Cucina Italiana Magazine.  The article …

Steamed Rainbow Trout with Garlic and Butter

I’m home from Big Sky now, and already missing it’s bluey, snow-capped mountains.  My sissy and her hubs showed us a great time!!! In five days we managed to fit in a trip to Yellowstone, fly fishing, several naps, and even a mountainous trail ride on horseback.  We truly enjoyed Yellowstone, as neither The Hubs nor I …
