I love combining flavors that don’t always seem to go together–especially sweet and spicy.  If you’ve ever had chocolate with hot pepper you know what I’m talking about. There’s just something about those two tastes together that does something to your taste buds.

Well, here’s a recipe that will satisfy […]

The corn this year – like the peaches – has been awesome. I haven’t tasted mediocre corn yet. I’m trying to work my way around to all the farms, but hey, it’s putting the weight on. And Mark is still trying to do low-carb (I gave it up in the face of all these delicious summer […]

One of the best things about summer is the leisurely pace. As the heat picks up, the days seem to slow down, bringing with them a sense of relaxation. This week’s food events match that leisurely pace. There’s nothing out of the ordinary on the calendar for Monday through Friday… just the usual. But the […]

Really, I was just going to get some strawberries at Fairview Farms around the corner, stop […]

Salad is not high on my list of favorite things.
I can think of literally hundreds of other foods
That I would much rather eat besides a bowl of leafy greens;

But come late spring,
When the first strawberries make their appearance
At the farmers’ market,

Being as my birthday is only a few days before the Kentucky Derby, I’m usually completely unaware of this popular horse race. Typically, I mention doing something on that day with a friend and they’ll say, “Oh, but it’s Derby Day!” Right. Really?

But I have finally realized that a lot of folks enjoy celebrating the […]

Lynne, the wonderful woman behind this website, and I are both fighting colds. We’ve both turned to our own Hot Toddy recipe for comfort (it just goes to show that we only post what we can back up). If you’ve got the early spring sniffles, too, we recommend it. Find […]

Santa has a serious sweet tooth,
But even he gets tired of eating all those cookies on Christmas Eve;

Chocolate chip, snickerdoodle, gingerbread…..

So this year, […]
