Hey, y’all!  Thanksgiving is just 2 days away, and I am super excited for my favorite holiday of the year.  My mom is coming to town in mere hours!!!!!  I hope you’ve already done your planning and shopping, so you don’t have to head into the last minute madness, but if you haven’t yet- fear not. […]

It’s a confusing 73 degrees outside in December, but I know it’s holiday time, because I just demolished the last of my Aunt Fran’s Chex Mix for breakfast.  Every year, her kitchen transforms into a Chex Mix construction site for hours on end, until she’s filled about a billion canisters, bags, and pretty boxes full […]

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 […]

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 […]

Hot Damn!  I’ve got a surprise day off, and my body is thankful!  You know, I’m not as young as I used to be, and cooking multiple meals for several families on the same day is a pretty intense workout.  Sometimes, I create three soups in one cooking spree, and I’m at a point where […]

This weekend was jam-packed in Atlanta.  Despite the lucky ducks who were able to get away to the beach or the mountains for Labor Day, there were many celebrations taking place in-town.  From the Decatur Book Festival, to Dragon*Con, to a Whiskey and Beer Festival, to Atlanta Black Pride, to Braves games, to opening day […]

Life is good.  Spring time sunshine and cool breezes abound, and everything is so green and lush.  It’s officially my favorite season in Atlanta.  When I lived in the Shenandoah Valley in Virginia, the falls were absolutely majestic- leaves like rainbow colored tapestries decorating the hills.  But here, spring takes the cake as the most […]

I’ve been playing with kohlrabi and radishes a lot this week.  I appreciate their crisp texture and the ease with which they take on flavor. Here’s a real simple recipe that I made to go along with a Grilled Mexican Spiced Pork Tenderloin.  It took very little time to put together and it was quite […]

It’s a hot, sunny, fabulous day in Georgia, and we’ve just gotten back from marketing (Yay!), erranding, and doing the general Sunday get-it-together-for-the-week chores.  I always wish there could be an extra day between Sunday and Monday.  That way, once all the catching up has been done, there’d be one more day to enjoy.  Lemme […]
