Summer Berry Shortcake with Goat Cheese Cream

I make no attempt to hide the fact that I love goat cheese. It, along with parmesan, is the reason I could never be completely dairy free (and believe me, for 3 years, I really tried). This blog may as well be called Love and Goat Cheese, although it doesn’t have quite the same ring...

Heirloom Tomato Caprese Sandwiches

Tennessee tomato season is in full swing. And I’ve forced myself to take a breath. And enjoy it. Because I’ve been waiting for this moment all winter. For this sandwich. And nothing, not even a measly cookbook, is going to get in my way. What is perfection if not a ripe Cherokee Purple? Or a...

5 Things for Thursday (and a GIVEAWAY!)

Is it really Thursday? As in, almost Friday? Really? I actually have no idea what day it is because my internal (external, and upside-downternal) clocks are all out of whack. Back to back trips with delayed connections, multiple time zones, and to-do lists as long as the TSA security line will do that do you....

With what, well, that’s what I’ve...

Guest Post: Kumquat Tart by Jaclyn of Food Plus Words

I think I went from having no time to having negative time. Which makes me even more thankful for another guest post, otherwise you all might start to worry Taylor and I fell of the face of the earth. This particular post is absolutely perfect, and once I have time the time and freedom to...

Guest Post: Custard Creams by Kathryn of London Bakes

So, to keep your sweet tooth satisfied in the interim, I’ve arranged for some fabulous guest posts by some blogging buddies! Today we head across the pond...

Taylor’s Bacon Fried Rice

My name is Taylor and I am Love & Olive Oil’s man-food correspondent. Lindsay is currently on assignment (knee deep in cupcake batter) and I will be filling in for a couple of recipes. I am also the resident dishwasher, co-cook, and voice of reason, all of which pretty much make me the best husband...
