Double the Sweetness, Double the Fun!

Thanksgiving day is almost here and our pre-game wouldn’t be complete without a sweet ending! We’ve got a double whammy for ya, one dessert for the adults, and one for the little ones! Although, I REALLY enjoyed both and remember, sharing is caring. Homemade sweet potato pie is one of my favorite holiday desserts to…

The Tale of Two Sides!

We are one day closer to the giant food and family extravaganza and almost done with round two of Turkey Day Pre-Game. We couldn’t possible go one more Friday without frying something! What a perfect time to break out our deep fried corn on the cob recipe accompanied by a light and refreshing cranberry coleslaw! These…

Bourbon Pecan Stuffing!

My favorite part of Thanksgiving dinner is that first bite of warm, rich stuffing smothered in gravy! All of the other flavors on the plate seem to soak into the stuffing, giving you that one perfect Thanksgiving morsel. We wanted to stick to a more traditional spread this week, while also experimenting and throwing in our…

Warm Garlic Soup!

This week we’ve got three wildly different soups simmering on the stove! Since we eat soup year round and put garlic in nearly every dish we make, this first pairing seemed perfect. Not only do you get to ingest spoonfuls of warm garlic goodness, but it’s ridiculously easy (and cheap)! Once it’s put in the…

Quick Chicken Coq Au Vin with Roasted Carrots and Bite Size Potatoes!

Everyone has a comfort food that makes them want to hug their plate and sometimes it’s as simple as creating a fragrant, thick and caramelized sauce that warms the heart! Today we’re putting a spin on the usually labor-intensive French classic, Coq Au Vin. This super simple skillet version takes only 45 minutes to execute and still retains the…

Vegetarian Shepherd’s Pie with Soy Chorizo!

Although we are not very excited that it will soon be time to dust off our winter sweaters and don our knee high boots, we are relishing in the fact that comfort food season is upon us! What better way to kick off this comfort fest than with a rich and hearty vegetarian stew, blanketed with…

Pub Style Beer Cheese Dip with Fresh Pretzel Bread!

We saved the best for last on this fabulous double dippin’ Friday! It’s hard to tell which was better, the beer infused cheese dip or the deliciously fresh pretzel bread, but when the two are combined, an overwhelming sense of peace warms the soul – and then comes the urge to grab the rest and run….

Creamy Collard Green Dip with Crispy Bacon and Jalapenos!

We successfully suppressed the urge to fry a dip today, but not to worry, we’re bringing you two recipes that are great for fall parties and are just as comforting as a deep-fried ball of cheese! Most of our creations this week have come from being inspired by family traditions or combinations we’ve experienced locally. Today’s…
