Italian Wedding Soup

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. […]

Every month, I spend some time curating meals that are seasonal and delicious.  Variety is my middle name!  (Find October, November, December, and January!) I hope it helps you in your quest to feed the troops!   I don’t always cook them all and almost NEVER in this exact order, but it gives me a […]

Greek Lemon Chicken Soup

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 […]

How to Make the Perfect Pie Crust via lifeingrace

Well.  It’s Monday and despite the fact that I always have grand plans for my Thanksgiving preparations, I’m way behind.  As in, I’m on Saturday’s list behind.  My first round of company arrives tomorrow and I can tell one thing for sure—my guest room is ready and I’m thinking of moving in there myself.  It’s […]

Y’all. I know I’m melodramatic.  I know I overstate everything.  Whatever. This is the best quiche I’ve ever eaten.  You don’t even know. And if you tell me you don’t like quiche, I will tell you to come to my house and then I’ll sit you down by the cozy fire, while I  make this […]

Roasted Butternut Squash Soup

Roasted Butternut Squash Soup via lifeingrace

Okay, I’m just gonna give it to you straight.  This Roasted Butternut Squash soup did not change my life like the Pumpkin Chipotle Barley one.  But you can’t eat that every week, can you? And fall needs you to embrace butternut squash.  It’s like sweet potatoes, minus the sweet and the potatoes.  So, I did what […]
