I’ve been asked about these by  multiple people and a friend pointed out yesterday that I’ve never posted the recipe, so I figured I’d get on it before it slipped my mind. The more detailed name of this appetizer and crowd pleaser would be “Mascarpone and Garlic Oil Toasts with Balsamic Honey Reduction,” but “Garlic […]

Broccoli Slaw

Broccoli Slaw

Broccoli slaw always reminds me of summer BBQs and southern pig roasts. Someone always brings a broccoli salad to a pig roast. And it’s not usually me. I opt to make the mac n cheese or fried green tomatoes or something universally loved. But every time I eat the broccoli slaw at a party, I […]

Turmeric Eggs with Tomatoes and Caramelized Onions

Turmeric Eggs with Tomatoes and Caramelized Onions

I love eggs. I love them for breakfast, for brunch, for lunch, for dinner. I love them prepared any which way. My go-to breakfast is a fried egg over potatoes and other veggies or a scramble with whatever I have in the fridge. Yesterday morning, I mixed up my usual plain eggs by adding turmeric. […]

Hello Dolly!

I don’t know if you call these Hello Dollies or 7-layer cookie bars or coconut chocolate nut bars, but whatever you want to call them, they are a mighty delicious, decadent dessert. It took all of 5 minutes to throw together and after 28 minutes of baking, they were ready to go. Fridge: 1½ sticks […]
