Coconut Chocolate Chews

February came to an odd sort of end in the U.S. South with a winter storm that left places like Little Rock and Nashville dealing with ice then snow, and days off of school. Atlanta was right at the edge of the frozen precipitation line. Friends in the northern suburbs experienced decent snow. Intown, we […]

I was stumped. It’s not a cobbler, a buckle, a betty or a crisp. It’s not a pie or a pudding. It’s cake-ish but not really cake-like. I didn’t know what to call it. So, as I opened up WordPress to blog the recipe, I asked my seven-year old, who raved about the dessert last […]

Food for the 4th

The Fourth of July is my favorite holiday. It happens during the summer, and I live for summer, so there’s that. It happens when the produce is amazing and simple and local. So there’s that, too. It’s all about community and the “big deal” is the neighborhood parade and fireworks on the hill. It usually […]

Fig Envy

I am a fiend for figs. My grandmother’s yard in Texas is full of fig bushes and trees and, when I would go there in the summer, I spent as much time as I could harvesting the little delights. My Granny and I would pop a few in our mouths, freeze some, and roast others. […]

I am battling a cold. We’ve been cooped up since Tuesday afternoon, although we blessedly avoided the absolute horror that so many Atlantans faced that day and into the next. (By the way, that’s a picture from my kitchen of our Big Green Egg in the snow. We got a bit more than that, but […]

Baked Banana Splits

We had some dessert-style fun at our house this week and I thought I would share the idea with you guys. It’s been colder than a Polar Bear’s nose in these parts lately, so I’ve gravitated towards the warm types of yummies. Two weeks ago I had a massive craving for a custard-style treat and […]

My kids were out of school on Halloween and the following day for Teacher Conferences.  It was fun to have that time together and also a blessing that we didn’t have to wake them for school on the day after trick-or-treating. The trouble is, even though the kids weren’t at school, we still had to […]

Plum Nut Crumble

My kids were flipping through cookbooks the other day, talking about which recipes they can and cannot have.  My middle child, M, is very gluten intolerant and so she goes through saying, “glue-ten,” “glue-ten,” “no glue-ten.” They stumbled upon a fruit crumble that looked delish, but fell squarely in the “glue-ten” category.  So, my oldest […]
