Chunky Clam Chowder

TumblrEmailOther Share Options

Clam chowder has always been a favorite of mine. Even as a child when I ate around the clams and only ate the potatoes—it was still my second favorite soup (after my grandmothers cream of asparagus). This clam chowder has a lot going on—I like to add a bunch of vegetables and bacon to add […]

Soda Bread & Dreams of Ireland

Soda Bread & Dreams of Ireland

From Laura’s Mobile Kitchen, September 21, 2015: I tend to organize my memories by meals. Chances are if I’ve been on a journey of any kind, I can remember what I ate every day of the trip. I guess it comes along with having a food- oriented brain—when I’m out of my everyday life, flavors […]

Persimmon & Pomegranate Bread

Persimmon & Pomegranate Bread

I will admit that I have never cooked with persimmons until today. I have had them in salads but that’s about my extent of my knowledge and use. Shame on me! Now that they are in season- I’m going to try to use them more often. I have also been wanting to add pomegranates to […]

Summer Corn, Roasted Butternut Squash & Mushroom Bisque

Summer Corn, Roasted Butternut Squash & Mushroom Bisque

I’m using whatever corn I can find to my full advantage. Summer is officially over. If you’re lucky, your farmers market or local store probably has a few more ears of sweet corn to get rid of and this soup is a beautiful and delicious way to use it up. The addition of the butternut […]

Pomegranate & Pistachio Brussels Sprouts

Pomegranate & Pistachio Brussels Sprouts

Getting kids to eat and, better yet, like Brussels sprouts is about as hard as it has been for me to take Donald Trump seriously in politics—it’s probably not going to happen. It’s a love it or leave it sort of situation with these mini cabbages. But, I’m here to tell you that I got […]

Pumpkin Pie Oatmeal

Pumpkin Pie Oatmeal

Tis’ the season for pumpkin pies. My soul loves them—my waist does not. So as much as I’m craving that extra slice with a giant dollop of freshly whipped cream, I have to use my willpower and say no. Well…really my uncle Jack had to take the rest of the pie home with him because […]

Tex Mex Cornbread Strata

Tex Mex Cornbread Strata

Strata is one of those great prepare-ahead casseroles that is simple and very versatile. As long as you have eggs and milk, you can use whatever bread and ingredients you have lying around. I happened to have leftover cornbread this week and it was too stale too eat alone so I decided to turn it […]

Cajun Shrimp and Rice Remoulade

Cajun Shrimp and Rice Remoulade

I went to New Orleans a few years ago and fell in love with the food. It’s truly impossible not to. Since then- using Cajun spices and the same flavor profiles has become a small part of my cooking technique. It’s something I hope I can only expand on. Does anyone have a Nola grandma […]

Apple Pear Ginger Butter

Apple Pear Ginger Butter

Did you go apple picking this weekend and now you’re having apple overload? That was me a week ago. I made apple and peach cobbler, fed the kids apples at pretty much every meal, added them to everything I can think of, and there was still an entire bag. Since I was headed to Boston […]

Southern Style Apple & Peach Cobbler

Southern Style Apple & Peach Cobbler

It was the very last of the peaches this past week. Stone fruit season is officially over! As is summer. So sad! So I longingly bought up the last of the peaches and paired them with the new seasonal fruit—apples. It’s the unofficial passing of the torch. I paired them together to create this delicious […]
