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 […]

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 […]

Sometimes it’s difficult to know which foods are beneficial to eat and which foods are not.  Seems like one day, eggs are getting a bad rap in the news…and then, another report will tout eggs as the single most nutritionally sound food one can eat. Sugar has been getting a lot of heat lately as […]

Hello!  The time has come for the first week of Jackson Lowe Vegetable Farm’s 2013 CSA!  Unbelievably, this is my fourth year writing recipes for this local farm’s CSA community.  When I first started my business, Plan to Plate, I reached out to Rockmart, GA farmers Mecca and Adam Lowe, offering a partnership. I wanted […]

As I was running errands today, I couldn’t get home fast enough.  I was hungry and overly eager to break into my quart-sized container of Matzoh Ball Soup from The General Muir. So simple and satisfying.  This bowl of pure chicken broth goodness, and that one imperfectly-shaped, fluffy, tender matzoh ball, brought back about a […]

Just before Easter this year, I visited Decatur’s wonderful Farmers Market on a gorgeous Saturday morning.  Oddly enough, I was taking photos of the beautiful vegetables, as I typically do, while the talented Ms. Inga Finch was snapping professional shots of me!  ‘Twas quite the strange sensation.  But, I grew more and more comfortable with […]

It finally feels like Spring has sprung!  Wooohoooo!  And this is one busy spring week. We kicked it off by celebrating Passover, and we’ll finish it up celebrating Easter.  These are the joys of coming from a home with a Jewish mama and an Irish Catholic father.  I always felt lucky growing up that I […]

Hello, friends!  Happy sunshiny Monday morning- our first one in several weeks.  It’s a beautiful follow up to a spectacular weekend.  I am actually feeling recharged and content after spending what Adam and I declared “playtime” on Saturday at the free Midsummer Music & Food Festival.  We enjoyed an amazing set of tunes by The […]

Oh, it’s another grey Monday morning, making it difficult to shake off the weekend and delve into the work week.  I know, we need the rain…but I’d like to stay snuggled under the covers with my dog and play hooky from the real world a little while longer.  I’m sure that many of the vendors […]
