Chicken Taco Salad with Homemade Ranch Dressing

IMG 9058 (1).jpg

Admitting to grilled chicken night about once a week is not a sin because – it’s easy, there are great left-overs for a quick lunch, and It can always be turned into another dinner. Some dinners are more successful, like enchiladas, gumbo, and white chili. …

Jammin' On The Jelly

It was a shock to see all the pumpkins prominently displayed at the farmers’ stands this week. Yikes! I forget to make summer peach jam! Fortunately, there were still plenty of really pretty South Carolina peaches available and just exactly perfectly ripe and ready for jam. …

On a Quiche Quest

Mini quiches are perfect for lots of occasions, a brunch, an appetizer, tailgating, a picnic, and the list goes on. The thing is, those pre-fab frozen ones are kind of icky – like eating cardboard, plus the cheese is rubbery and isn’t worth the calories and who knows what else is in the filing. 

Fishing for Compliments

You won’t have to fish too hard to get a thumbs up on this recipe. It’s the best kind – the kind where you ask an expert. When we go to our favorite beach vacation spot, Fernandina on Amelia Island, our first excursion is to Atlantic Seafood on the tip of the pier. …

Fig Dreams

We thought our fig trees were completely dead this spring. Last winter gave us a string of really cold days with high temps in the low teens. Not good fig weather. Even my sister gave them little hope when we looked at all the spring green leaves and pretty wild flowers with the dead sticks of a large fig tree dominating the landscape. …

Buzz Worthy Company Menu

Today was The Day – or as it were - Bee Day. After two years of beekeeping, gathering the honey was almost over too quickly, but it’s definitely worthy of a celebration! The harvest was much easier than anticipated thanks to a word of advice from good friend Sylvia from Green Door Gourmet, who shared the tip that bees hate the scent of vanilla. …

Summer Side

It’s summer in Tennessee and we are all about using the grill as much as possible. It’s just easier – no fancy casseroles, big pasta dishes, or hearty stews – no heavy creamy side dishes either. All of those can be saved for cold weather fare. …

Impulse Blackberry

Raise your hand if you’ve ever made a spur of the moment purchase just because – well you can’t help it. We all try not to do that but no one is perfect and my spur of the moment happened at a beautiful pop up food market – with one of those “I’ll never have this chance again” kind of deals. …

Staying Chill

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

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. …
