I love cheese.  When I was in second grade, I made an All About Me book.  For my “favorite foods” page, I cut out and pasted on a giant tower of cheese from a magazine.  The tower o’ cheese was so tall, it stuck out of both ends of my book.  Almost 30 years later, […]

Part of the reason I’ve been MIA on the blog front is that March was a complete blur.  In addition to a busy work schedule and our regular whirlwind-y festive life, we had two back-to-back baby showers for four very close friends in March.  And the very next weekend was Easter and Passover (which kinda […]

Well, hello there, friends!  It’s a beautiful Thursday afternoon, and I am thankful to be back in flip flops and tank tops!  That cold snap was scary- for my body and my mind.  I was concerned that all the vegetables in the ground, trying to grow into something wonderful, would be squashed by dropping temperatures.  […]

Last week, one of my clients hosted a dinner at her house for ten women.  She asked me if I would be able to cook a meal to accommodate one of her guests who is currently on a cleansing diet- avoiding all processed sugars and grains.  It seems that a lot of folks these days […]

Well, it is just a smashingly beautiful day in Decatur!  The sun is shining, the sky is blue, and our windows are wide open.  It’s a perfect day for a little Spring Cleaning and some intermittent cooking.  We’re having a couple of friends over tonight to watch The Walking Dead, so I whipped up a […]

Happy Valentine’s Day to you!  Thought I’d share something pretty and red. These beautiful red peppers are stuffed with a couscous salad and topped with a mixture of low fat Greek yogurt and egg.  I think the presentation is so much more pleasing to the eye than the traditional stuffed peppers that stand straight up, […]

Pizza.  It’s a staple in our home.  I’m pretty sure my husband could eat it every day, even though he used to work at a pizza restaurant and was elbow deep in flour and cheese most of the time.  It’s just a meal that we don’t ever get bored of eating- probably because we never […]

Ah, pizza.  It’s a comfort food extraordinaire for me.  I grew up eating New York Style pizza- big slices that you are required by law to fold in half and eat while streams of orange oil drip down your hands.  After 18 years of being down South, I still crave boardwalk pizza from Mack & […]

Peaches are all around us these days in the great state of Georgia.  They are sweet, juicy, and taste like summer time.  Aside from enjoying them on their own, I have plans for incorporating these little treasures into salsas, salads, and sauces.  What better a pairing for the Georgia peach than in a good old […]
