Damson Plum Jam

Damson Plum Jam

Why hello, there, adorable little plums! I almost mistook you for grapes. I’m sure glad I didn’t, because you are as delicious as you are precious. Yes you are! New to me, I’d never...

Food Blog Forum Nashville Swag Bags

Food Blog Forum Nashville Wrapup (and a GIVEAWAY!)

What started as a seed of an idea early last spring, grew into something more than we could have ever imagined. Months of planning culminated this weekend in a whirlwind of a day filled...

Tequila Watermelon Popsicles

Tequila Watermelon Popsicles

Sometimes, you find yourself with way too much watermelon. Seriously. We’re just two people. Do you really expect us to eat an entire watermelon all by ourselves? We’ve been able to pick and choose...

Food Blog Forum, Nashville

Food Blog Forum, Nashville is just over a week away, and I couldn’t be more excited! We’ve been working feverishly since April to make this event a reality, and let me tell you, it...

Spicy Tomato Peach Jam

Spicy Tomato Peach Jam

Free choice tomatoes. Those three little words make me giddy. Let me explain. Our CSA isn’t organized in your typical get-a-box-of-veggies-each-week way. Rather, you bring your bushel basket to the weekly pickup, and can...

Brownie Pie

Brownie Pie

Photobombed.

Fresh Corn Cakes with Avocado and Goat Cheese Salsa

From grits to griddle cakes, apparently I’m in a corny mood. (A food blogger walks in to a bar… er, hold on… not THAT kind of corny!). Summer corn season is short, but boy...

Roasted Corn & Tomato Grits with Goat Cheese

Roasted Tomato Grits with Goat Cheese

We’ve lived in Tennessee for just over four years now, and it’s about time we start earning our Southern credentials. Think of it like the boy scouts for grown ups, but instead of badges...

Peach Cantaloupe Sorbet

Peach Cantaloupe Sorbet

Unintentional ice cream week? Perhaps. I’m sure you don’t mind. This fruity freeze was the result of an overabundance of cantaloupe. Ripe cantaloupe. And we all know that perfectly ripe cantaloupe does not wait...
