Wherein I Share Some Mardi Gras-appropriate Recipes

I am not from Louisiana, nor have I ever lived there.  I do, however, have some Louisiana ties (my mama’s mama’s people are from Shreveport), and I grew up drinking Coffee with chicory and eating things like gumbo and shrimp creole and putting Tobasco sauce on just about everything.  The holy trinity is in my […]

After All This Time, All I Have To Offer Is Casserole

It was never my intention to take a leave of absence from this space, but it seems that it happened anyway.  Oops. If I’m being perfectly honest, it was kind of nice.  Not being tied to a camera or a computer for a little while.  I might try it more often. Not that I don’t […]

Can You Hear Me Now? {Garlic Ginger Chicken with Brussels Sprouts}

Remember the Telephone Game from when we were kids?  The one where a bunch of people sit in a circle, and one person starts by whispering a message into the ear of their neighbor, and that person turns and whispers (what is supposed to be) the same message into their neighbor’s ear, and so on […]

Where Have You Been All My Life? {Cast Iron Roast Chicken}

Kids, I’ve had a revelation.  An absolute epiphany. I’ve seen the light. Today, I discovered the secret to fast, perfectly roasted chicken. Two and a half  years into this blogging experience, and I’ve finally found a roast chicken recipe I feel confident sharing.  That just seems wrong somehow. Do you ever feel like you’re doing […]

Student | Teacher | Cook: {Viking Cooking School and Fried Chicken}

On Saturday morning, I was a student. I had been invited by the General Manager of our local Viking store to come take a complimentary class and write about it.  I chose Saturday’s class from their menu of choices for one reason and one reason only: fried chicken. The title of the class was Southern […]

{not} Philly {not} Cheese {not} Steak

This is a post about something that isn’t at all what it claims to be.  Does that even make sense?  It’s a Philly Cheesesteak that’s not made in Philadelphia and doesn’t contain steak or (anything you can legally call) cheese. So, yeah, it involves processed cheese food product.  Sue me.  Sometimes I feel the need […]

These Drumsticks Rock

I have to admit, these drumsticks were not totally my idea. First, there were these Caveman Pops (aka Roasted Turkey Legs) over at The Pioneer Woman Cooks.  And they sure did look tasty. Then, there were these Berbere Roasted Chicken Legs over at Gluten Free Girl.  Her description of berbere, with its ginger and garlic […]

$5 Slow Food Challenge: Jambalaya and Community

The concept of community is relatively new for me, but I’m learning to embrace the idea.  I’m lucky, because my neighbors are warm and welcoming – something that I’ve not always been completely familiar or comfortable with.  I’m getting there, though – more and more every day. I signed on with Slow Food USA about […]

Jerk Chicken

When I was in college, I was fortunate to have the opportunity to spend a week in Montego Bay, Jamaica.  My mother was given the trip as a bonus for a big project she had led to completion at work, and she thoughtfully invited me to accompany her on the trip.  The package had us […]
