Well.  I’m 3 days into recovering from food poisoning.  I no longer wish to die, so that’s always a plus. I got out of bed almost like normal for the past two days.  I’m still slightly nauseous but am overall on the mend.  I haven’t been able to exercise all week, which usually negatively affects […]

There’s a good chance that a batch of these monster cookies will be made in my kitchen every weekend from now till the end of  August.  Why, you ask?  Well.  There’s two good reasons.  The first reason is—these are the signature cookies that my beloved 12 year old makes and when someone else offers to […]

  “The arrival of company at the house, the arranging of dinners and suppers, in style, awoke all the energies of her soul; and no sight was more welcome to her than a pile of traveling trunks launched on the verandah, for then she foresaw fresh efforts and fresh triumphs.”~ Harriet Beecher Stowe, Uncle Tom’s […]

puffytacos2

I’m about to give away the family jewels here.  And listen.  After all the busyness and writing and preparing of the last few weeks, I’d give just about anything away for summer to be here.  Or least to never have to be nicely dressed for 12 straight hours again.  I’ve become such a homebody whiner.

Dear kind and spicy friends, I took 817 pictures of this soup and I COULD NOT capture the deliciousness of this creamy chicken tortilla soup. Whatsoever. Please believe me when I say that this soup is the mother of all tor-tilla soups.  (We say tortilla like gorilla, for special effects.) This is but a warm […]

italian wedding soup2

Well.  First of all, let me say that I love weddings.  EVERY last thing about them. I get all teary eyed for the bride and groom.  I always imagine that I’m the photographer, looking for those candid moments that can’t be missed.  I love the wedding liturgy, the familiar words, the dancing, all of it.

Thank you for all your kind comments on our dorky homegrown videos yesterday and on Melanie’s book. You are the best kind of friends! Chocolate chip cookie recipes are like purses to me.  There’s one for every occasion.  Actually, that’s not true at all, because I’ve been carrying the same purse for over a year. […]

This Greek Lemon Chicken Soup via lifeingrace

The snow storm of 2014 that consisted of 2 inches of snow and chilled us Southerners to the bone has turned into sunshine and 50 degrees and distant memories of perfect snow days.  I love January to pieces and snow days that slide right up to a hint of Spring make me love my Southern […]

Potato Corn Chowder via lifeingrace

A dear reader, Robin, did us all a favor today.  She reminded me of the deliciousness of Potato Corn Chowder (the recipe of which was first posted in my Hospitality ebook, but never on here) and so I thought I’d share the recipe with you,  since my originally planned post went haywire and will have to […]
