Traveling to a new city makes me feel like a kid in a candy store.  I love to explore, wander, and experience all a city has to offer.  I haven’t had a chance to see a fraction of the world I’d like to see yet, but a girl can dream.  Since I pretty much eat, sleep, and breathe […]

Hello, friends!  Leaving Florida and coming home to a freezing Atlanta was a bit tough, but I hardly had time to mope about it.  I attended a meeting with a local radio station 30 minutes after I got home!  It has been a busy and awesome week for Plan to Plate!  I welcomed several more […]

Hello, Friends!  This has been a whirlwind week- I can’t even believe how quickly it went by.  I guess that since the snow finally started to melt, it was time to get down to business!  I welcomed two new clients this week, and I’m super excited about bringing fresh, delicious foods into their homes and helping […]

When the weather reporters claimed that we would be getting 3 – 6 inches of snow in Atlanta.  I said, “Yeah, I’ll believe it when I see it.”  I really didn’t expect much more than a light dusting.  I mean, come on, this is Hotlanta.  I’ve lived here almost twelve years and never seen anything […]

I have always loved a tender, juicy Thanksgiving turkey.  But it’s not an every day occurrence that a whole turkey is roasting in my kitchen.  The more approachable split turkey breast has definitely made its way through my oven and into my belly more than once.  The turkey breast doesn’t take nearly as long to cook […]

In these cold and snowy times, it’s important for my being to experience hearty, bone-warming meals.  Hearty doesn’t always have to equal super heavy or fattening, and  I cook plenty of soul satisfying meals showcasing light and healthy ingredients.  But you know how I feel- everything in moderation.  Sometimes, my body just needs meat and potatoes. […]

This week’s Taco Tuesday adventure was a smashing success.  Roasted chicken soft tacos and homemade pico de gallo served with a dynamite corn and black bean side dish.  I started by preheating my oven so I could roast my bone-in chicken first.  I chose to buy one chicken breast and a couple of thighs, because I appreciate the […]

This has been a very exciting week for me and Plan to Plate.  Though my primary focus in my business is helping people to cook fresh foods in their home, every now and again, I am asked to cook for a small crowd of folks.  A few months back, my husband and I provided most […]

Holiday time 2010 was just fabulous.  I was able to visit with so many loved ones and celebrate the season in different ways.  But, oh my.  My jeans are fitting a lot tighter, and I’m actually relieved for the start of 2011 and getting back on track with healthy eating.  I have never seen so many cookies, […]

Oh, what a wonderful, snowy Christmas weekend we had here in Atlanta.  I enjoyed so much food and cheer with friends that I spent all day Sunday just reflecting on the loveliness of it all.  Hopefully, you felt the joy of the season as well.  I took a few days away from the computer, but […]
