Holy cow!  It’s Labor Day weekend!  Donnnnnnnnnn’t go, summer!!!!!!!!!!!  Man.  What’s next?  Halloween?  Thanksgiving??  2014???  I am not ready, y’all.  I wish we could slow it all down and relish each moment a little bit longer.  But, I supposed life isn’t gonna slow down for me or you any time soon.  Here’s what I’ve been […]

Hey, Y’all.  I’m not going to talk about the rain today.  Not the bajillion days of rain we’ve had this summer or the number or inches of rainfall we’ve experienced beyond our average.  I’m also not going to talk about the terrifying elementary school shooting that took place a few miles from our little town.  […]

Working with seasonal ingredients affords me the opportunity to experiment and create constantly, making me one lucky girl, because I love that sorta thing.  Mostly, I tap into my intuition about how foods behave and how flavors and textures play together, and I try to highlight the star fruit or vegetable in a simple and […]

Finally this week, we’ve gotten a good dose of sunshine!  I was dropping off meals to a client and humming a little John Denver to myself, enjoying the glory of the warmth on my face.  I got into the car, turned on am 1690, and “Sunshine on My Shoulders” had just begun.  Whaaatttt?!?!?!  Apparently the […]

I don’t think I’ve ever seen so much rain in my life.  Over the past few weeks, the rain has become less a topic of idle chit chat and more a state of being.  The ground is just soaked, streams of water carving out dark, muddy pathways which only lead to more water.  Big, fat, […]

Tomorrow is the 4th of July, and I am wondering where the heck the first half of 2013 has gone.  Geez Louise. Just in case you are feeling a little behind the eight ball too, I figured I’d share a few last minute Independence Day recipes with you. I hope you will have a safe […]

Last Friday, I had the exceptional opportunity to volunteer my services at The Center for Well Being and Palliative Care Clinic at Grady.  For the second year in a row, I was able to create and present a workshop called “Eating Well for Living Well” designed to educate and entertain a group of local adults […]

Since I grocery shop and cook for folks for a living, I spend an inordinate amount of time at Your DeKalb Farmers Market.  Only five minutes from my house, this place is a gigantic hub of culture, food, and activity.  The store is packed nearly all the time with 100,000 customers per week, and people […]

It seems that the older I get, the more I have to learn.  Twenty years ago, when I was seventeen, I thought I knew everything.  Haha!  Silly younger version of myself.  With age and experience has come acceptance of the glaringly obvious- I hardly know anything at all!!!!!  Er, alright, I can give myself some […]

I’m pretty sure that Adam and I found the perfect way to commemorate Memorial Day.  We spent a week traveling from Georgia to New Jersey and back again with the “excuse” of a family wedding propelling us.  The last time these two Prices took a real vacation was four years ago, and we were beyond […]
