It doesn’t matter what your life looks like, getting healthy, delicious meals on the table in the midst of everything else you have going on, can be challenging. With me working early mornings at The Pastry Shop and The Boy leaving for work at The Hospital around two o’clock in the afternoon, I try to get our meal on the table a little after one o’clock. Sometimes I’m a little sleep stupid when I come home from work, so prepping this slow cooker chicken the night before and having it ready to go when I leave the house, oh so early in the morning, means we can eat together as a family and carry on with our day (nap) (Read more…)
When Summer is waffling…I’m making waffles! And not just any waffles. I’m going all out and making rainy day Belgian Liège Waffles. These are yeasty brioche dough waffles, studded with crunchy pearl sugar, and guaranteed to make you feel good about an afternoon nap! (Read more…)
You’d think, being born in Chattahoochee County, Georgia, I’d have had my biscuit game down years ago. Sadly, no. It was only recently that I put my mind on figuring out how to get the biscuits of my dreams out of my head and onto a plate. I read a few hundred recipes, tried a few different techniques, and…made some truly heinous hockey pucks. But I never give up. I kept trying, and finally brought it all together into what I believe are some of the fluffiest, flakiest, most tender biscuits outside of the South. Covered in rich creamy sausage gravy, this is a breakfast worth having for dinner! (Read more…)
That’s a pretty bold statement, I know, but The Boy declared them the best, and who am I to argue with my resident Jersey Italian? (Read more…)
The Boy likes his red sauce. Over pasta, on pizza, swimming with meatballs, it just makes him happy. If you cut him, does he not bleed marinara? Oh geez, I hope I never have to find out 😳. So, being married to a New Jersey Italian, having a marinara recipe that you can whip up in a hurry is a really good thing. (Read more…)
There’s EVERYTHING to love about my EVERYTHING bagel muffins with bacon, corn, jalapeño, and cheddar! (Read more…)
I was an Army brat growing up and spent most of my childhood near Fort Sam Houston in San Antonio, Texas. If there’s a food truth that everyone can agree on it’s that, in Texas, beef rules. It’s teetering at the very top of the Texas food pyramid. And beef brisket is the ultimate in Texas beef. The king, if you will. (Read more…)
I don’t love bananas, but in the interest of my health, I try to eat one every day. Sometimes they start over-ripening before I can eat them all. That’s bad. So I developed a delightful coffee cake to give those darn mushy ‘naners some new life! (read more…)
What better way to celebrate the start of my new blog than showing you the dishes that started my love of all things food!
I grew up the only daughter of a Korean mom and inherited her recipes, which I have done my best to pass on to my three daughters. There’s no real recipe to share at this time. It was taught to me with a certain amount of Korean mom impatience and open hands of spice saying “you put this much your hand!” Kinda hard to translate into measurements, but over time I think I perfected my mom’s recipes. Maybe.
I hope you’ll enjoy following me on my new culinary path, cooking and baking for a wider audience and having a great time doing so! Learn more about me here and check in often. We’re gonna have a delicious time!
