Easy Coleslaw

Easy Coleslaw

I grew up in a house of coleslaw lovers. I now live in a house of coleslaw haters. This makes enjoying coleslaw a little difficult given that no one else will eat it if I make it. And I mean no one.  Not even a bite [...]

Apple and Gorgonzola Salad with Balsamic Vinaigrette

Apple and Gorgonzola Salad with Balsamic Vinaigrette

So, let’s talk about salads. I really enjoy them. Or, at least, I think I do. I want to. But I get bored of them so quickly. Maybe that’s a me issue. Or, maybe it’s a salad issue. I vote salad issue. I’m sure [...]

How To Make Fresh Creamed Corn

Fresh Creamed Corn

Back in August, I posted this pic to Facebook of Savannah devouring my Fresh Creamed Corn recipe. What I didn't post, fortunately, were photos of me licking my plate along with her. I'm kidding, of course...kind of. Now, you know me when it comes to tasty, home-cooked food -- I really have no self-control. Well, when [...]


Southern Green Beans

The story behind these Southern Green Beans is a long and bittersweet one. It all starts with Dustin... Being from Texas and all, Dustin has always loved this slow-cooked, Southern style of green beans.  Then, on a trip to Northwest Arkansas about 4 years ago during a beautiful Memorial Day weekend, Dustin and I experienced [...]


Cherry Tomato and Cucumber Salad

I'm all alone in my household of four. No one else enjoys cucumbers.  Or cherry tomatoes. No one, but me. Sniff. Sometimes, I just have to celebrate my cucumber-and-cherry-tomato-loving-ways. And sneak in things like this Cherry Tomato and Cucumber Salad. Even if I'm the only one who eats it, it's still darn tasty. So there. [...]

Roasted Asparagus

Roasted Asparagus

I originally had no intention of posting this Roasted Asparagus recipe.   As you can probably imagine, I cook a lot. Which means I make a lot of food.  And try out a lot of recipes. When these recipes are tasty, I share them on this here blog.  When they're not up to par, I [...]

Sautéed Asparagus with Garlic and Shallots

Apparently, there's only so many times one can eat plain steamed asparagus. And, when I say, "one," I mean Dustin.  As for me, I could probably never get tired of it.   You know how there's that one side or that one recipe that, somehow, always sounds great for dinner?  Well, steamed asparagus is usually the [...]

How To Make Zucchini Noodles

How to Make Zucchini Noodles

Not being able to eat pasta with this new diet has kinda been killing me. Just kinda. I had to turn my creative thinking cap on. Like on super power mode. I came up with zucchini noodles. Yes, zucchini noodles! These are so easy to make and actually replace a traditional pasta pretty darn well. [...]

Chicken Stir Fry

Stir Fry can usually be either a blessing or a curse, depending on how it's made. Most of the time, sadly, I find it winds up being too mushy, with over-cooked, dry chicken and super salty.  Me no like. The blessing of stir fry, however, is that it comes together so quickly and easily and, [...]
