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.

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 […]

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 […]
