Isn’t it funny how powerful our senses can be? My family takes a trip to the Tennessee Mountains every fall and you can’t drive very far up there without seeing a pancake house. The smell alone puts me in a good mood. On a cool mountain morning, who can pass up the scent of crispy bacon, cane syrup and stacks of buttery, fluffy and warm silver dollar pancakes?

Fall baking is one of my favorite past times, and whether you’re baking this cake for fun or for Thanksgiving, it’s sure to please.

Stuffed peppers are one of my favorite dishes to create. They’re colorful and you can pretty much stuff them with anything. Continue reading “Easy Stuffed Bell Peppers”
It’s pumpkin spice season, y’all! I mean, fall. Bring on the granny smith apples, the bright orange pumpkins and multi-colored gourds, the cooler weather, football season and pumpkin spice everything. Lattes, coffee creamer, candles…oh my.
It’s officially fall, and that’s something to get excited about. In Savannah, Georgia, the average temperature this time of year is around 85 degrees, which may sound warm to most, but we welcome anything below the high 90’s! When it comes to food, there are so many ingredients I love to cook with in the autumn months. Continue reading “Savory Side Dish: Cinnamon Apples & Onions”
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.

Flatbreads are all the rage these days. Easy to put together with endless flavor combinations, they come together quickly and make a light weeknight dinner or appetizer before main course. Continue reading “Garden-Fresh Shrimp Pesto Flatbread”
If you’ve never fried shrimp at home before, you totally should. It is so easy to do, and seriously, Some Kinda Good! When my husband and I go out for dinner, I typically order things I rarely prepare at home. Coconut shrimp with orange marmalade is one of those dishes….sounds so fancy, right? Continue reading “Coconut Shrimp with Orange Marmalade: Yes, please!”
In mid-July, I experienced a lot of firsts. I traveled to New York City for the very first time in my 35 years of life. What a different world! There was so much to see and do, and most importantly to eat. I was amazed by the bumper-to-bumper traffic, the millions of people and constant sounds of sirens and honking horns. I was so fortunate to have a native New Yorker to show me around the city, to guide taxi drivers to my next destination and to introduce me to all the things. The culture, the languages, the pizza, the bagels, my first arancini, oh my! I have so much to tell you about. Continue reading “My First Time in New York City”
Earlier this week, we had a church picnic and I needed a covered dish to take along. I love to cook and eat foods that are in season because ingredients that are at their peak will always taste the best. Summertime is the season for blueberries and cold watermelon, and my herb garden was ripe with fresh basil and mint. Continue reading “Watermelon Berry-Lime Fruit Salad”
The Fourth of July usually finds me in the pool or somewhere on a beach, but almost always with good food, typically cooked on the grill. Summertime is all about easy cooking and not heating up the oven. Today, I’ll give you some ideas for a fun and festive July 4th menu that’s big on flavor and comes together with little preparation. I’m also sharing my recipe for Grilled Corn on the Cob with Cayenne Herb Butter. Continue reading “Grill Out This Fourth of July”
If you’ve been following along on this season of Food Network Star, you know that I was eliminated on Episode 3 last Sunday evening. What a sad and devastating moment that was!
