Longtime readers of this blog know nothing about me if they don’t know this one thing: I love chocolate. Not just any chocolate. I love very dark, high quality chocolate. And I eat it. Every. Single.

If you follow me on Facebook, you’ve likely seen reference to one of my staple dinners when D is traveling. I take whatever cooked meat I have on hand, usually leftovers from the night before, shred it in the food processor, and heat it up with some ketchup, mustard, and a little molasses. It’d be an […]

Bacon Wrapped Oysters

In my Farmers’ Market post, I mentioned that Mom and I had fetched some fresh shrimp and oysters at the Bluffton Oyster Company on our way home. It sits right on the May River, and is perched next to the dock where the shrimping boats come and go. It’s got a terrifically briny smell, and […]

We spent last week in the South Carolina Lowcountry, just inland from Hilton Head Island. It’s a lovely spot to Spring Break, because along with all the tourist fun centered around Hilton Head and the beach, we get to experience the gorgeous May River and all the fun (i.e., food) that the lowcountry has to […]
