Champagne Cupcakes: A Labor of Love

0211161822b.jpg
Champagne Cupcakes with Raspberry and Orange Buttercream Frosting is a “sweet” way to say “Be My Valentine.”

They say the way to a man’s heart is through his stomach, and with Valentine’s Day just a few days away, it’s time to get cookin’! All jokes aside, I don’t think there’s a better way to show you care than by cooking or baking for someone you love. I’ve got a special recipe to share today, and it’s exciting for two reasons: 1) It’s seriously Some Kinda Good (you get to bake with champagne!), and 2) It’s developed by a really inspirational person I had the privilege of meeting and competing with on ABC’s The TasteContinue reading “Champagne Cupcakes: A Labor of Love”

White Chocolate Almond Bark for Your Special Valentine

Take a trip to Wal-Mart during Valentine’s week and you’ll see them everywhere…those guys with good intentions carrying around fluffy teddy bears and mass-produced, heart-shaped boxes of less than desirable chocolates. I just want to walk up to each of them and say, “No.” There’s simply nothing romantic about getting the same thing every other girl on the block is getting, and whoever said it’s the thought that counts, lied.

Christmas Ornaments Have a Story to Tell

Decorating the Christmas tree has always been introspective for me. Aside from the standard ball ornaments, I have a special bag of sentimental ornaments I delicately wrap and unwrap each year, carefully peeling back the tissue paper to reveal the precious memories. Filled with stories of trips gone by and milestone occasions, the ornaments on my Christmas tree tell the stories of my life.

Peel potatoes and be sure to chop all your ingredients the same size for even cooking.

When the weather starts to feel like fall in Savannah, it isn’t long before my husband, Kurt starts requesting pot roast for dinner. When we were dating, I needed a tire changed on my car. When Kurt came to the rescue, I said, “What do I owe you?” With that sweet Southern boy charm, he smiled and said, “Three pot roast dinners will do it.” He has always loved pot roast.  Continue reading “Kurt’s Favorite Pot Roast”

Spaghetti Chicken Stir-Fry: Give it a Try

I love to make stir-fry for dinner during the week. It’s fast, flavorful and so versatile. I usually serve this sauce + meat mixture over brown rice, but earlier this week, I changed things up and served it over whole wheat spaghetti instead. It was Some Kinda Good! Feel free to make this recipe your own by using whatever protein you like. Shrimp, pepper steak or even ground beef are delectable options. The sauce is slightly sweet with a little tang from the ground mustard, and the crunch from the celery and pecans gives the dish great texture.
