Staying Chill

IMG 2718.jpg

You’ve probably tasted and enjoyed a lot of frozen pies – especially here in the South. If the humidity today is any hint, the heat level is going to make you crave this cool tasty treat that is a breeze (that sounds good) to whip up. …

Richard’s Salad

IMG 8183.jpg

Ever since my kid could crawl around in the yard we’ve planted a vegetable garden. He is a little less available now, but still managed to devote a Saturday morning to planting his peppers and cucumbers and helping me with the rest of the stuff – especially herbs. …

Seared Shrimp and Summer Vegetable Salad

Seared Shrimp and Summer Vegetable Salad

The plan was to grill, but the weather wasn’t friendly and that turned out to be a good thing! We had the most delicious dinner with about 15 minutes of prep and cooking time all because of a rainy night. …

Fancy Fish Campfire Dinner

IMG 7770.jpg

Every now and then when we were little – probably in desperation – my mother would let us make aluminum foil “campfire” dinners. That meant that we put together what we wanted to eat so no one could complain if they didn’t like it. …

Annette’s Homemade Ice Cream

IMG 7782.jpg

This is the promised ice cream recipe from Annette in Seaside and it’s a doozy. I had to read it two times to really believe you don’t have to cook anything! What a perfect way to make ice cream in the middle of a hot summer – mix stuff up – get it cold – and freeze away! …

Firecrackers on the Beach

Is there any better place to fantasize about food than at the beach? I got to skip town last week with a wonderful friend and spend a couple of days on the Gulf Coast. We went to Florida for fun, sun, and seafood, but also to visit a beautiful little art gallery in Seaside,

Happy Birthday Lemon Pudding Cake

IMG 7610.jpg

Isn’t it weird when your kid gets to be the age you kind of imagine you are? It would be easy to sink into decline and say, “I’m so old” but instead, why not use it as an occasion where it is impossible to turn down dessert - which would be in very poor taste on your son’s birthday! …

Strawberry Stuff

IMG 7545.jpg

It’s been a Mother’s Day tradition to cook dinner with my son since he was tall enough to reach the stove. He knows I have a hankering for anything with strawberries, especially this time of year, so he wisely planned a strawberry dessert.  …

It’s Honey Thyme

IMG 7453.jpg

The bees are buzzing, the herb garden is springing back to life, and the good news is that we have a new grill! That means we are ready to make Strawberry and Spinach Salad with Grilled Chicken for dinner. Really, there isn’t a good name for this salad because the thrill is the Honey and Thyme Dressing, but the bacon, walnuts, and feta cheese are also notable players in the recipe and refuse to be ignored. …

Shrimply Delicious

IMG 7382.jpg

Do you love the words “Dinner is ready” especially if you have only one pan to clean afterwards and you know you’ve got everyone’s favorite dish – shrimp – is on the menu? That’s a go in this household! We are in love with this Greek Style Tomato Baked Shrimp. …
