Fancy Sloppy Joes

August 31, 2011

Sloppy Joes take me right back to family dinners when I was a kid. There was a few years where my grandparents lived with us, and the family joke was that my grandpa was so messy when he ate that he needed a bib. I mean, we all know people who manage to spill something [...]

Peaches with Balsamic Cherries

August 15, 2011

I’m probably committing the cardinal sin of food blogging, and that is posting two similar recipes in a row. There isn’t much of an excuse other than that I came across more peaches at the state farmers market recently. For a peach fiend like me, the more ways to eat them, the better. I figure [...]

Peach Tart

July 26, 2011

I am one of those tattoo-less people who sit around thinking about what my potential first tattoo might be. I recently had the epiphany that it should be a peach. I love peaches. They are hands down, my favorite fruit. It’s probably weird to want a tattoo of a peach, so we’ll see what happens. [...]

Pimento Cheese

July 13, 2011

I have lived on and off in the South for a total of six and a half years. The most Southern experience of these years was spent in Hartsville, South Carolina. I had moved down there to help a great friend of mine open a coffee shop. She grew up in SC, as did her [...]

San Francisco

June 23, 2011

Hey all! I just got back from a week in San Francisco, and it was fantastic! In the next few days, we’ll be moving into a new place, so there most likely won’t be any blogging until we’re all settled. Best part of the new place? Bigger kitchen! Can’t wait to have more counter space [...]

Vietnamese Pork and Noodle Soup

June 11, 2011

I don’t really know how to write about this soup. I’ve got a few friends who are pretty fanatical about various Asian cuisines, so if any of you read this blog, please feel free to educate me. As for me, this was simple a recipe in a book that looked pretty good, and so I [...]

Brownie Pudding

May 16, 2011

I am officially done with community college! The past month has been a little nuts, as I have been trying to keep up/catch up with all my classes. Please forgive me when I say that I made this brownie pudding a month ago or so. I don’t know about anyone else, but when I get [...]

South Indian Vegetable Curry

April 25, 2011

I’m not sure if I’ve mentioned it on the blog before, but I have braces. There is really nothing like turning 30 years old with braces on. I felt very attractive. I highly recommend it. Okay, but seriously, having braces as an adult has been a challenge. It’s not so much the way they look, [...]

Strawberry and Almond Crumble

April 5, 2011

I recently picked up a couple of new cookbooks, and one of them is Nigella’s Kitchen by Nigella Lawson. I had certainly heard of her before, but after browsing this cookbook a few times, I decided it was finally time for it to be part of my collection. This book almost reads like a memoir, [...]

Shrimp Scampi Pasta

March 8, 2011

Until last night, I think it had been about two weeks since I had cooked a proper dinner. My schedule had been getting so hectic, with school, work, work functions, applying to universities for next semester (I’m a transfer student), trying to get homework done in a timely manner, making sure I still had clean [...]
