For some time now, I’ve been spying the Hershey’s “Special Dark” cocoa powder popping up in various recipes, like this one here. After my usual amount of procrastination, I finally decided to go grab a

Caramel Apple Tart with a Cornmeal Cheddar Crust

October is all about warmth, comfort and “nesting”, wouldn’t you agree? I find myself craving warm soups like nobodies business and dusting off my far too large collection of winter scarves, that I’ve had packed away all summer long. I pull out the big blankets and look forward to movie nights when I can burrow under them with a glass of wine and finally relax. My days are filled with

Fried Green Tomato BLT with Whipped Rosemary Feta

With the gardening season wrapping up, I’ve found myself with more green tomatoes than I knew what to do with! This was my first year with an actual garden that wasn’t comprised of a few small pots on my small apartment deck. So in my joyous excitement, I may have gone a bit overboard in the number of tomato plants I put into the ground. Like 10 plants overboard.  After

Therefore I just may be doing what ever I can

Is it wrong to hoard cookbooks? At what point should I consider it a problem, because I’m pretty sure I have a LOT of cookbooks. Well, let me rephrase that – I HAD a lot of cookbooks over the years.

The Peachy Keen Cocktail

You know it’s officially summer when the farmer’s markets are overflowing with a tempting variety of sweet peaches. I’ve been especially drawn to these punched-down versions of a white peach, called a Donut Peach. I love their little squatty, orbital bodies, haha!
