Sharing a seriously fun love for food

Month: August 2017

Emily’s Bacon Bourbon Jam

Emily’s Bacon Bourbon Jam

Bacon Jam made the rounds several years ago but good things are worth repeating. First, let’s be clear this is more of a slightly sweet but savory condiment rather than a spread for your morning biscuits. It’s a lively topping that can be added to […]

Cornbread Muffins

Cornbread Muffins

One of the greatest things about the South is the genuine hospitality of the folks who live here. It’s in our nature to share food with others. My Mom and my Grandmothers were always taking food to welcome a new neighbor, to share a new […]

Strawberry Tart

Strawberry Tart

Strawberries have to be one of the summer’s most popular fruit and certainly one that touches multiple senses. They are gorgeous in appearance, their scent is unmistakable and the sweetness of this luscious berry comes with just a hint of tartness. There are so many […]

Mom’s Meatloaf

Mom’s Meatloaf

We seem to have a love it or hate it relationship with meatloaf. My Grandmother made a fabulous meatloaf. I remember her soaking breadcrumbs in half and half before mixing the meat, eggs and spices together, then covering the top with a sweetened tomato-based sauce. […]

Madeira Wine Sauce

Madeira Wine Sauce

Most nights I try to cook and frequently I will pan sear a beef filet mignon or two. They’re easy to cook, don’t take much prep time and always satisfy. (And yes, we have a great “how to” for pan searing steaks on our blog!) […]

Tomato and Bacon Quiche

Tomato and Bacon Quiche

When most of us think about quiche we flashback to the 70s, to bellbottoms and the Bee Gees. Quiche actually originated centuries ago and this dish’s history has various stories-some say the quiche has roots in England, some say Germany. Quiche is an often-overlooked brunch […]

Skillet Blonde Brownies

Skillet Blonde Brownies

I have my Mom’s cast iron skillets and also some that belonged to my Grandmother. There have been hundreds of dishes cooked in those skillets, from steaks to fried chicken to cornbread. Truthfully, I cherish those as much as the china I inherited from both […]

Corn Bisque

Corn Bisque

As a kid, corn was one of my favorite vegetables. My Grandparents grew large crops of corn. When we were young, we would weave our way through the cornfields playing and hiding from one another. Our Grandparents would send us out to gather bushel baskets […]

Cherry Clafoutis

Cherry Clafoutis

This dish reminds me of three wonderful women: two I have known and loved, all I’ve admired. First, Julia Child. Who hasn’t been inspired by Julia Child? I have many of her books, including a copy of her classic “Mastering the Art of French Cooking” […]

Pork Chops and Wild Rice

Pork Chops and Wild Rice

Casseroles in some form have been around for years and there has been a rebirth of sorts in their popularity. Juggling careers and family limit the time we have to prepare a home-cooked meal, and options you can cook while on the run provide a […]

Blueberry-Orange Muffins

Blueberry-Orange Muffins

Blueberry muffins are probably one of the most popular of all muffins. You can find them everywhere from the drive-thru coffee shop to the frozen food section in the market. But oh, fresh baked blueberry muffins-now that’s a treat! And there’s nothing quite like the […]

Macaroni and Cheese, Slow Cooker Style

Macaroni and Cheese, Slow Cooker Style

Who doesn’t love macaroni and cheese? Creamy, cheesy and comforting! I’ve always baked macaroni and cheese in the oven, complete with a rich béchamel sauce, topped with toasted breadcrumbs. When Emily was in the second grade she was home sick and doing the “Mom thing,” […]
