I’m Back! And I Made Spaghetti and Turkey Meatballs with Home-Made Sauce!

Okay, I know. It’s been way too long since I’ve posted. I could bore you with many excuses about how I’ve been too busy or how being sick fol­lowed by the major hol­i­days really got the best of me and my time. But in real­ity, my heart just hasn’t been in it. I’m not sure […]

Thanksgiving, Family and Food. And a Recipe!

I hope every­one had a great Thanksgiving. I know we did, but we almost didn’t. A few weeks ago I came down with the swine flu which then turned into pleurisy. For more than the last two weeks I have been in bed. I didn’t really leave the bed or couch unless i needed to […]

Creamy Winter Squash Soup and Fancy Grilled Cheese Sandwiches

A few weeks ago we received this strange, bul­bous, warty squash from our CSA. We had no idea what it was. After some research we dis­cov­ered that it was a Hubbard squash. I read that their flesh tends to be very moist and they they need to be cooked longer but that they are perfect […]

Hearty Harvest Hash & Cheesy Corn Muffins with Fresh Cayenne Peppers

It is beau­ti­ful out­side right now here in Nashville. It’s sunny, 70º and out my win­dow I can see the leaves del­i­cately float­ing toward the ground. With Fall in full swing here, I’ve been want­ing a good hearty break­fast. Taking full advan­tage of our new Lodge cast-iron cook­ware, Megan and I tag-teamed in the kitchen […]

Savory Butternut Squash and Potato Tart with Bacon and Herb Cream Sauce

First things first: it’s been a while. Too long. Between cel­e­bra­tory fes­tiv­i­ties and an enor­mous project at work, I’ve been slammed. Unfortunately, that has resulted in less time for the full-on cook­ing and doc­u­ment­ing of said full-onness. I promise I’ll try to do bet­ter, but I make no promises. And now on to our irregularly […]

Birthdays, Cupcakes and BACON!!!

So, I’ve got a birth­day com­ing up this week. Apparently it’s a big one, as Tuesday is my last day of youth. At the stroke of mid­night early Wednesday morn, I will enter my 30th year. Am I wor­ried about it or stressed out about becom­ing old? No. Not really. Whether it’s 30, 4050, […]

An Even Better BLT and More Sunday Wine Fun

So last time I made a BLT, it was pretty freak­ing awe­some and that was before the height of tomato sea­son. Today I found a decent local Yellow Brandywine tomato at our Kroger of all places and decided I wanted a BLT. But, this time I took it to the next level: Frying. I enjoy […]

Smoked Turkey BLT with Fresh Cayenne Chipotle Mayo

While water­ing our herbs and cayenne pep­per plant this after­noon I noticed that we have sev­eral pep­pers that have finally ripened. We’ve been using them green for a few months, but now, they are a bril­liant red. I wanted to do some­thing with one of them today and I’ve been crav­ing a good BLT lately.

BLT Inspired Caprese Salad

Tonight I forced my wife to do some­thing she didnt’ want to do: eat tomato. She hates them, even to the point of vom­it­ing while I love them. and when we got them in our CSA box this week, I was so excited!!! As soon as they came, I wanted cap­rese. So tonight, I made […]
