Spinach quiche with caramelized onions is as creamy as custard. Baked in the flakiest herbed crust that will melt in your melt. Great for a Spring brunch or to chase away the winter blues.

There’s just something appealing about a hand pie. I think it’s the size and the fact that you can eat it without a fork. We’ve been loving Raspberry Hand Pies this winter but it’s time to branch out. Someone told me a long time ago to add apple brandy to my apple pie to really […]

Shortbread chocolate chip cookies are a buttery treat that have just the right combination of chocolate chunks, salt and butter for a simple but fabulous cookie. Easily made into mini treats. These cookies have been all over Instagram since Alison Roman’s cookbook Dining In came out. I started with this recipe which are worth […]
I love to make breakfast muffins but why can’t they stay fresh for more than a day! No matter what ingredients I’ve tried, they just aren’t as good the next day. I’ve tried freezing them but still they don’t have that glorious fresh out of the oven texture when you reheat them. After making a […]
Everyone likes a good sloppy joe, a slightly sweet hamburger mixture on a bun. It’s a great go to dinner. This version is even better because of course it has cornbread. Instead of putting your hamburger mixture inside a bun, cornbread is added to the top and it all bakes together. Cornbread makes anything better. […]

We love our barbecue here in the South, but sometimes I need a break and chicken is the next best thing. Most of the time, I’ll cook it in the slow-cooker, shred it and put it on a biscuit or make tacos. But on nights when I haven’t done any planning, most nights for me, […]
I am always on the search for cookies that are a little different. I send cookies or bars to my mom and mother-in-law every month and I try to be creative and find something they can’t get at the grocery. I also have to keep in mind that I’ll be shipping them. These are not […]
When we were snow bound a few weeks ago, I experimented with different techniques for scones. I love scones as long as they’re not covered in thick icing. A little glaze is OK, but I don’t want something overly sweet for breakfast. The scone is just the thing, biscuit like but lighter. I especially like […]
Burrata covered with tomatoes and a little balsamic vinegar is a staple for me all summer long. But in the middle of winter, tomatoes have no flavor. So I saw where Alison Roman in her new book, Dining In put orange slices with burrata and I had to give it a try. Everything else I’ve […]
During the winter months, cauliflower can be one of the few vegetables that tastes good. So while waiting for Spring vegetables to show up from warmer climates, this is a great dish. It’s hardy enough to be a meal all by itself but also works great for a side. I really enjoy cauliflower especially when […]
Everyone has their favorite method for making pie crust. Mine has evolved over the years from using shortening to adding vodka. This method which uses butter and apple cider vinegar is the one I have been using lately and creates the flakiest crust for these amazing hand pies. While some folks use their hands, I […]
I’ve been trying to think of something to use my frozen strawberries for other than smoothies and thought they would be just the thing to add to biscuits. The strawberries add just enough sweetness to the biscuit and how cute are pink biscuits. Perfect for a baby shower, afternoon tea or brunch. These are just […]
Before Natalie went back to school we wanted to make something yummy for her to take back with her to get through sorority rush. The girls have always loved eating raw cookie dough, and it’s all the rage now with cookie dough bars and such. I prefer my cookies baked but I was out voted […]
Over Christmas I was trying to find something healthy to throw in with all the decadent food that we were eating. Since my girls are not fond of broccoli, and green beans seemed a little boring, I tried these out on them and they were a hit. So much so that I made them a […]
For the holidays I decided to go with a standing rib roast this year. I was going to pair it with my standard Fluffy Dinner Rolls, but I was out voted. The gang wanted Yorkshire pudding. My mom used to make these growing up, but we called them popovers. They were light and airy, the […]
The weather has turned frigid, it’s not supposed to be in the single digits in the Carolinas! Perfect weather for chili. I thought I would share this version that we’ve made a couple of times already this fall. While I still love a big piece of Brown Butter Corn Bread with chili, topping it with […]
