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 […]

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 […]

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 […]

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 […]

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 […]
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 […]
