Fry Baby

IMG 5070.jpg

Here is a quick recipe for a tasty snack you can make in minutes and enjoy for a fun football game day treat or as a fantastic cocktail nibble. It has to be quick because I’m completing the last edit of the new cookbook and everything I do right now has to be done in a snap. …

Crafting with Anna (Part 2)

IMG 5022.jpg

If you read about the Jelly Pies yesterday, then you know that Anna and I love to have some new craft project to try. Usually it’s knitting – sometimes painting, but this time we went for another favorite – a food craft. I don’t usually write about something that requires special equipment – but this was just too much fun to pass up and must be passed along. …

Cooking with Anna (Part 1)

IMG 5029.jpg

When Anna called yesterday and asked me if I wanted to come over to her cute new condo and make jelly pies - well-  who would turn that down?  Anna and I met when she and my son were in pre-school together. It was love at first sight. …

Figgy and Piggy

IMG 4640.jpg

Our back yard fig tree has been hanging around for a while spitting out a fig or two a year. I don’t know what suddenly inspired it, but this year we have figs! By that I mean that several times I’ve been able to pick at least a dozen. …

Chili in August

IMG 4846.jpg

My guys wanted chili – in August. Who thinks that way? In theory I sort of get it, school has started, and it was a rainy night in Nashville. Memories of last winter’s homemade chili were long behind us and no hearty beef chili is likely to appear in the immediate future with temperatures remaining in the 80s and 90s. …

Chicken in a Biscuit

When I was growing up, anytime we had leftover turkey my mother made turkey hash and served it on waffles for breakfast. It was a Nashville specialty. As kids we didn’t care that it was proudly presented to every president who visited the Hermitage. …

Nephew Stew

Brunswick Stew doesn’t actually have nephews in it, and thankfully – at least my version – doesn’t have squirrel. In fact that’s what first kept me from attempting to make Brunswick Stew when long ago I was told the main ingredient was squirrel. …

Eating Your Curds and Whey (and Tomatoes & Garlic)

IMG 4432.jpg

I though it would be hard to make ricotta cheese, but since “housemade ricotta” is a feature on half of the menus in town, it occurred to me to try do just that -  make ricotta cheese in my house. It turns out that it’s no big deal – it s easy as pie – actually it’s easier. …

Pepper Perfection

IMG 4334.jpg

When I told the guys I was planting chocolate peppers in the garden this spring, there were mixed reviews. My husband was hopeful – he doesn’t play well with vegetables. My son was scandalized - he has a pepper garden with about 20 varieties and they are all extremely hot. …

Dress for Success

IMG 4211.jpg

Last week I went to a nice luncheon and had a salad. If you are thinking – and you probably are – there is nothing remarkable about that, well in theory you would be right, but don’t give up yet. What was actually a truly remarkable thing about this lunch was the salad dressing. …
