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 Pear and Goat Cheese Galette!

Hooray! We’ve made it to the final course of the first round of Turkey Day Pre-game! Never made or heard of a galette? Neither had I. Not to worry! It’s super simple, light, and loaded with warm pears, goat cheese and sweet spices. It’s a perfect end to a chaotic, but productive day of cooking and eating. If you…

Warm Garlic Soup!

Creamy Collard Green Dip with Crispy Bacon and Jalapenos!

Most of our creations this week have come from being inspired by family traditions or combinations we’ve experienced locally. Today’s…

Fair Time Funnel Cake!

The dog days of summer have come to an end and fair season is right around the corner! What better way to celebrate than with some good old fashioned funnel cake. Our original plan was to make the batter from scratch until I remembered that we had recently received a Funnel Cake making kit from our wonderfully thoughtful…
