A Tasty Start to a Cold, Wet Day

Today was sup­posed to be won­der­ful. It bliz­zarded big time here yes­ter­day. Er, big time for Nashville. We got 5 – 6″ fol­lowed by about a quarter-inch of ice on top of that. As a result, we had a lovely day of nothin’-doin’ planned for stay­ing inside. Well, not exactly nothin’-doin’. There are a few chores and […]

Apple Pie-O-Lantern and Spiked Spiced Cider

With fall apon us (and threat­en­ing to sur­ren­der us com­pletely to win­ter), few things sound bet­ter to me right now than warm baked goods uti­liz­ing the fruits that are in sea­son. For dessert last night, Megan made this awe­somely adorable and sea­son­ally appro­pri­ate apple pie-o-lantern. There wasn’t much to it, store bought crust, Megan’s mom’s […]

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 […]

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 […]

A Sunday of Preparation: Wine & Pasta Sauce

Sundays in our house are often a day of rest and prepa­ra­tion. This Sunday was no dif­fer­ent. We had a bunch of toma­toes from the CSA that we needed to use so we decided on mak­ing some roasted veg­etable pasta sauce. It’s really easy, but takes a while so its per­fectly suited to Sundays. I […]

First Cayenne Pepper Harvest

This week­end we har­vested the first round of pep­pers from our cayenne plant. This plant is insane! Pictured are roughly 35 pep­pers. A few weeks ago we pulled maybe 5 – 10 ripe pep­pers for some salsa. We’ve also been using greens ones from time to time so I would guess that we’ve pulled maybe 50 peppers […]
