Bacon Cheeseburger Pasta

In a world full of uncertainty, there are a few things you can count on beyond death and taxes. Every time we think our schedule is now clear, it will fill up. Overnight. Johnny Depp may be weird, but he’s easy on the eyes. Shortly after you take delivery of seventeen chicks and five ducklings [Read On]

Barbecue Pulled Pork Pizza

Today I have the second of the three pizzas I planned to share with you for Pizza Week. You can see the dough recipe here and the Spinach and Garlic Alfredo Pizza here. Hooray for pizza! Now, I can’t speak for your own mother, but I -for one- would be thrilled with a homemade pizza [Read On]

Kitchen Sink Hush Puppies | Pepper Jack and Ham Deep Fried Cornbread

  I have a deep love for hush puppies that began -as so many things did- in my childhood in Kentucky.

Soup Dumplings and Irresponsible Wonton Soup (Make Ahead Monday)

My husband has been doing a lot (A LOT) of business travel lately. As in he’s been gone more than he’s been home, unfortunately.  Before he headed out for a particularly long stretch a couple weeks ago, I ran to the store and bought giant multi-packs of paper towels, toilet paper and saltine crackers. As [Read On]

Waffle-Iron Ham and Cheese Paninis

We all know how I feel about ham and cheese. It’s no secret that I love it truly, madly, deeply… The world’s simplest ham and cheese is good enough, no doubt, but everyone knows a toasted ham and cheese is even better. And when you compress that sandwich while it’s toasting -á la panini- you [Read On]
