When I found out that this week’s #SundaySupper was inspired by Sara Moulton and her cookbook Sara Moulton’s Everyday Family Dinners, I couldn’t wait to pick a recipe and get started. We found out pretty quickly we were allowed to use any Sara Mouton recipe and use it to inspire us. Almost immediately we settled [...]
During the summer, we have much more time to spend on cooking and meals in general, but that doesn’t mean we always do. Some nights, we just want to get dinner on the table so we can get back to whatever it is we were doing before that. Sometimes it’s so we can get back [...]

This Garlic Tomato Butter Chicken is seriously a favorite at our house. I think it’s the vibrant color that my kids love, though the buttery, garlic tomato flavor is amazing as well, so you know… could be either. What mom loves about it: It makes a quick & easy weeknight dinner and we all could use [...]
The Food and Wine Conference is next month in Orlando, Florida, July 19-21, 2013. This final month is going to be agonizing for me as the date crawls closer. In case you were wondering, I am super excited. This is my chance to meet some of my best friends face to face, finally after all [...]
I haven’t spent as much time in the kitchen the past couple of days, but not because I haven’t wanted to. I just felt I owed it to my beautiful garden to spend some time in there, taking care of what will eventually find its way into my kitchen. Not to mention, I’m slightly addicted. [...]
I’m a bit addicted to wine smoothies. Last summer I was introduced and I have been hooked ever since. This Wine Smoothie with Mango and Pineapple, is one of my very favorites.
