Frittata for One

I had something like this at brunch with friends a few months ago. At the time I wasn’t crazy about the particular dish but I liked the concept. I knew with some customization, I could make it perfect. And I’d also been making a lot of omelets (necessary when you get a dozen eggs a […]

Shrimp and Grits

A friend and I were talking about grits today at work (I know. We’re weird.). And then we started talking about Charleston and how we both want to visit. My mom visited a few months ago and loved it. A college friend recently got engaged there (and I secretly loved reading her story on her […]

Carrot Soup

They say necessity is the mother of invention. Well, I’m not exactly the first person to make carrot soup but it’s definitely necessary and considering I’ve never even had carrot soup before today, it kinda feels like an invention. At least to me. I’ve mentioned that I’m not the biggest fan of carrots, and yet […]

Spaghetti Squash Casserole

Can someone please make this winter stop? I mean seriously. It is late March and it is snowing! We had gorgeous weather on Saturday — a friend and I went for a hike on the Appalachian Trail, wearing short sleeves and shorts, and enjoyed some ice cream afterwards…just for the temperature to never climb above […]

Butternut Squash and Goat Cheese Bake

This is a tasty dish with a less-than-descriptive name. Sorry about that. I tried Googling “types of casseroles” and “terms for baked dishes” in hopes of the brilliant minds of the Internet giving me something better, but…”bake” was the best I could come up with. And to think I sometimes consider myself a decent writer. […]

Butternut Squash Sauce

To start: Sorry for the hiatus! Some wickedly bad weather and a wonderful vacation have kept me from the blog for far too long. Why is it that when the weather is at its worst, I lose all my creative juices and turn back to the tried and true recipes? Maybe it’s because my body […]

Hearty Beef Stew

It’s cold. I don’t know about where you are, but I am experiencing the coldest winter of my life. I lived in Florida for 24 years, but that’s beside the point. This winter has been exceptionally cold, and it probably is where you are too. And in an exceptionally cold winter, you need many hot […]

Pesto Pork Tenderloin with Potatoes & Carrots

This is a two-for-one recipe today, since I’ve been less than diligent with posts lately! I was out of town this past weekend in Asheville, NC. They have such a thriving local food culture — tons of restaurants featuring local and sustainable ingredients, supporting their local farms and the environment. It was really cool and […]

On-the-Go Frittata

How long do you have to get out the door in the morning? Twenty-five minutes like me? If so, you certainly don’t have time to make a healthy, balanced breakfast. Shotgunning cereal is not an option, loaded with sugar and refined grains and chemicals (BHA and BHT?! Artificial coloring and flavor? Not appetizing.) and it’s […]

Turnip-Leek Soup

Happy new year! I hope you enjoyed your holidays; I certainly had a blast (hence the lack of posts). But after the debauchery of eating out, parties, and lots and lots of beers that lasted from Thanksgiving til New Year’s Eve, I am so, so ready to refocus and refresh. It’s been wonderful to read […]
