Georgia Blueberries Star in Summer Tart

I’ve always loved the concept of a tart. I think it’s the ease of preparation that appeals to me. The idea that you can whip up a pastry base and fill it with anything you like, whether sweet or savory is just exciting, and the ridges–I can’t get over the ridges. Any combination of summer fruit will make a beautiful tart. This buttery, comforting blueberry tart was inspired by The New York Times Dining & Wine Recipes of Summer Fruit.

A Garden Bounty with Homegrown Tomatoes

I’ve never considered myself a green thumb, but by the looks of my garden this summer, you’d never know it! Over the past few years, my husband and I have really taken a liking to gardening, and it all started with a few empty terracotta pots we found in the backyard.

Spatchcock Chicken with Herb Roasted Vegetables

The lemon herb oil in this recipe coats the chicken, potatoes and vegetables, for a delectably juicy and flavorful dinner.

Using a 4-pound chicken allows this meal to cook up quickly, and with everything on one sheet pan, clean-up is easy. You’ll be amazed at the flavor of the vegetables — the lemon juice and olive oil combined with garden fresh herbs is such a complimentary accompaniment to the pan juices of the chicken. Be sure to season everything well with plenty of kosher salt and black pepper.  Continue reading “Spatchcock Chicken with Herb Roasted Vegetables”

From the Pond to the Pan – Here’s to You Dad

I’ve often been called “a chip off the ol’ block.” I am my father’s daughter, there’s no doubt about it. We’re built just alike. I have his eyes and his exact feet, only mine are prettier. I get my trademark curly hair from Daddy. We love a classic country song and the Georgia coast. We like good eatin’, going fishing and front porch rockin’ among the pine trees on our home place in Middle Georgia. We love pickin’ and grinnin’ and spending time singing Southern Baptist hymns and 1990’s Alan Jackson hits. We’re a lot alike, my Daddy and me. On this Father’s Day, I honor you, Joe W. Faulk III. Continue reading “From the Pond to the Pan – Here’s to You Dad”

Pasta dinners are my go-to for busy weeknights. This dish combines summer squash with garden fresh herbs and jalapeños for a spicy, bright and quick one-dish dinner. Pairs well with cold and crisp white wine, such as Sauvignon Blanc or Pinot Grigio. Continue reading “Bow Tie Pasta with Italian Chicken and Fresh Herbs”

Tip It On Back: Homegrown Jalapeno Margaritas

Just in time for Taco Tuesday, I’m sharing my recipe for homegrown jalapeno margaritas! There’s nothing quite like the refreshing bite of ice cold tequila with a little heat from the jalapeno peppers and a salty, lime-infused rim. I grew these jalapenos in my garden, and love using them in unexpected ways. Enjoy this spicy, cool drink year ’round. Best served with my go-to guacamole and the taco ring.

Fresh Blackberries Now Ripe for the Picking

In Southeast Georgia, blackberries are in season through about mid-June, and not only are they sweet and satisfying, but packed with health benefits too. I use them in so many ways, whether baking, making cocktails, paired with other fresh fruits or just for snacking. Blackberries make wonderful jams and jellies, as well as sauces too. Pair them with pan-seared pork chops for a real sweet and savory treat. Continue reading “Fresh Blackberries Now Ripe for the Picking”

Aunt Adela’s Cold Georgia Blue Crab Dip

From left: Levi, Angela, Kurt, Rebekah and Max go crabbing on the St. Simons Island Pier.

In early April, I went on vacation with two of my best friends of 25 years, including our families – kids, pets and all. We rented a beach house on St. Simons Island and spent the week eating to our hearts’ content, lounging on the beach and having jam sessions by the pool. It was the ideal vacation, complete with dolphin watching, strolling on the pier and working on our tans, but the most fun I had all week was when we rode our bikes to the pier for a little crabbing adventure.

Old Fashioned Thumbprint Cookies

Thumbprint cookies originated in Sweden. Known as Hallongrotta/hallongrottor in Swedish, the meaning literally translates, “raspberry cave.” I love these shortbread-style, buttery cookies because they’re so easy to make and can be customized to fit any occasion. They melt in your mouth! Continue reading “Old Fashioned Thumbprint Cookies”
