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

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

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

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. …

Where’s the Pasta?

If my husband hears that we are having something for dinner that sounds even vaguely Italian, he assumes it’s pasta. This is partly my fault because frequently it is…but not always! The first time dinner was announced as Chicken Milanese he was so excited. …

Lauren’s Wine Cake

Our friend Lauren was coming with us on a recent family getaway and asked if she could bring a cake. Well what kind of idiot says no to that? We love cake! Lauren made a recipe she and her mom adore, so already it was special. Family recipes are always the best. …

Crawfish Boil

Because we live in landlocked Nashville, there are some seafood menus that just seem beyond my cooking creds. Usually It’s because of ingredients that proves difficult to find – not from a lack of desire to at least give any recipe a shot! …

Easter Treats — Cooking with Kids and Kids at Heart

IMG 7163.jpg

My kid is 26 so to me he’s kind of both, but if you have a budding young chef in the family or neighborhood this is really an entertaining spring time cooking project – perfect for little hands. Sometimes the simplest recipes produce just the most delicious results. …

A Quick Trick

You know the feeling, it’s just a weeknight dinner, but does it have to be the same old boring stuff? Even if that stuff is perfectly good, sometimes it’s nice just to put a party dress on it and see what happens. This past week asparagus that was such a good deal at the grocery store it was a shame to pass it by. …

Springing Ahead

IMG 7061.jpg

The blog took a break last week for a quick trip to Florida. It was so cold on the beach, we couldn’t wait to get back to Nashville. We did - and it snowed. Bad luck all the way around, but at least the snow was pretty and short-lived and now the spring flowers are putting us all in the mood for summer. …
