Buttermilk Biscuits

Buttermilk Biscuits

If there’s bread in heaven, biscuits will definitely be there! The perfect biscuit is light in texture with a “melt in your mouth” quality. A truly great biscuit can stand on its own with a touch of butter or rise to the occasion when needed to […]

Brunswick Stew

Brunswick Stew

I don’t remember the first time I made this stew, but it was years ago and is still in the top five of my favorites. It’s the stew I make when someone I love is not feeling well and it’s the stew I make when […]

Creating a Cheeseboard… A Wonderful Meal for the Weekend!

Creating a Cheeseboard… A Wonderful Meal for the Weekend!

It’s the weekend and something we love to do is open a great bottle of wine, kick back and enjoy one of our favorite meals. And for this meal, I don’t even turn on the oven or the stove. Instead, I pull together an assortment […]

Ginger Pear Jam

Ginger Pear Jam

I love making jams and jellies and truly some are easier to make than others. Pear jam usually fell into the “others” category. Ginger Pear Jam happens to be one of Emily’s favorites so I decided I had to tackle it and work out a […]

Boeuf Bourguignon

Boeuf Bourguignon

I’ve been deep into cooking as many years as I can remember – I was in the kitchen even before I could reach the stovetop. In our family neither my Mom nor my Grandmothers viewed cooking as a chore. They saw different foods and dishes […]

Chocolate Chip Pecan Coffee Cake

Chocolate Chip Pecan Coffee Cake

This is one of those recipes that every time I make it I ask myself why I don’t make it more often. It starts with a luscious pound cake batter made with sour cream and pure vanilla extract – then bittersweet chocolate chips and toasted […]

Broiled Grapefruit

Broiled Grapefruit

It’s the middle of the week and ridiculously cold outside so I’m working from home and looking for something to pull together for brunch. Broiled grapefruit seems like a perfect idea! This brunch recipe has been around for decades with many variations on this simple […]

Split Pea Soup

Split Pea Soup

Soups are a staple on my menus. Whether it’s summer or winter, there’s one frequently simmering on the stove. It’s hard to find anyone who doesn’t love soup especially when the temperature dips. Split pea soup is one of those comforting, cold weather “hugs” in […]

Southern Tea Cakes

Southern Tea Cakes

The layers of sugar on my counters have been cleared from the holiday baking frenzy. Though it’s not quite time for the rich sweets of Valentine’s Day something to nibble on with a cup of hot tea sounds quite inviting. Southern Tea Cakes provide a […]

Raisin Sauce and Maple Baked Ham

Raisin Sauce and Maple Baked Ham

Growing up, ham was normally reserved for company or holiday meals. My most visible memory of my Mom preparing a gorgeous ham was one she made for company. Mom had toiled away all afternoon, readying the evening meal for her guests. She pulled her gorgeous […]

Short Rib Ragù with Pappardelle Pasta

Short Rib Ragù with Pappardelle Pasta

One of the many things I love about spending time in Atlanta with Emily and Matthew, aside from the obvious is our shared love of food. They have a passion for great cuisine, always exploring the new and diverse world of food in Atlanta and […]

Two Refreshing Ways to Get Your Apple a Day!

Two Refreshing Ways to Get Your Apple a Day!

So, as the calendar changed to 2018 at our house, we clearly missed the “apple a day” concept. We’re finally coming out from under the weather and I decided it’s time to fortify. There are days when nothing seems to satisfy like a glass of […]
