Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies

Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies

Cravings are funny. I rarely crave sweet things like chocolate bars and candy. Usually my cravings lean toward salty and crunchy like chips and nuts. The exception to this is when I’m trying to lose weight. Whenever I’m trying to drop some pounds, chocolate cravings come from out of the blue for things we rarely […]

Strawberry Cobbler (quick version)

Strawberry Cobbler (quick version)

For the past 5 days, it’s been raining in Nashville. Not just drizzling or sprinkling rain, but hard down pouring rains that make you want to stay in the house. When I’m stuck in the house and bored, I like to bake. Since we’ve started eating differently, I’ve been trying to make our recipes  a little […]

Almond Butter Chocolate Chip Bars

Almond Butter Chocolate Chip Bars

I can’t believe that I’ve been missing out on almond butter all of these years. Mentally, I’ve always lumped it into the same category as natural peanut butter. Not fresh ground peanut butter. I’m talking about the gross stuff you see in the store with the layer of oil on top that needs to be […]

Before I moved away from home, there were a handful of dishes that my mom made me master- fried chicken, […]

Sometimes I see a recipe that I just have to try because it sounds completely amazing. I heard about this recipe on KCRW’s Good Food podcast. Evan Kleiman is a pie a junkie like me and every year she does a Pie a Day Contest. She even has a Pie a Day App. She did an […]

Dulce de Leche Dark Chocolate Chunk Ice Cream

Dulce de Leche Dark Chocolate Chunk Ice Cream

It’s hot in Nashville. A couple of weeks ago, the weather went from uncomfortably warm to hot as hell overnight and frankly I wasn’t ready. I’m not sure anyone can truly be ready for temperatures over 100 degrees. There have been all kinds of heat related illnesses around town – mostly stemming from dehydration and we’re officially in […]
