I’ve recently jumped on the trendy bandwagon (which I try to never do) and am making an attempt at going mostly gluten free. I’m not going to lie, for years it drove me crazy when someone said they were gluten free (except for those with Celiac Disease of course). I just felt like they looked […]

Nothing says summer in the South like fresh, juicy Georgia peaches. Even as far north as Kentucky we get them shipped in by the truckload. I snagged some of the sweet peachy babies as soon as I saw them and came home to make a sugary cobbler for Independence Day. As soon as dessert was […]

I don’t do much baking in the summer. I’m less inclined to heat up the oven (and in turn, my house) in the scorching heat. The temperature outside my home in Kentucky has been over 100 degrees for days now, unseasonably hot and record setting for this time of year. But sometimes the mood to […]

Zucchini bread was always a favorite of mine in childhood. My parents kept a large garden in the backyard on our farm in Anderson County. In the late spring and summer the golden and green hued zucchini was abundant. Steamed zucchini with a little butter and herbs was a regular side dish at our family […]

Strawberry season is the perfect time of year, and strawberries are my all time favorite fruit. A friend of mine pretty much summed it up with, “I love strawberries because they’re awesome.” Yep, I totally agree. I’ve posted recipes for a few strawberry goodies on this site: Sweet & Savory Strawberry Salad, Strawberry Shortcake Muffins […]

Strawberry season is here, and depending on your region of the country the season may be winding down or just getting started. In Kentucky, we are at the beginning of the season. Last week I was in Tennessee, a little farther South, and the season was in full swing. We ate mounds of sweet, delicious […]

This brown sugar pie is amazingly simple yet delicious. For this recipe, I made some modifications to a recipe I found in the Good n’ Southern Cookbook, a collection of recipes gathered by the Civil League of Newberry, SC. This particular recipe is credited to Mrs. Maude P. Cartwright. It is like a buttery caramel […]

One of the best parts of being a food blogger is getting to know so many wonderful people who also happen to be excellent cooks. Because I travel frequently, I don’t always have enough time to make the foods I’d like for a given holiday. This Easter is one of those busy times. Luckily, I’m […]

St. Patrick’s Day is made for bread with oats, Jameson Irish Whiskey and Guinness. I mean, really, don’t you think? You need something a little heavy to ground your belly amidst all the merriment, drinking and celebration. I have a solid Irish heritage that allows me to drink to my heart’s content, but it is […]

Chocolate and Baileys Irish Cream are a natural combo for St. Patrick’s Day food goodness. Wrap it all up into a cookie and you have a little bit of Irish perfection. I can usually make cookies, set them aside and only have one or two, saving most of them for friends and family. That is […]
