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”

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”

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.
