Pimento Cheese

Every so often I get a taste of something that captivates my taste buds beyond redemption. Infatuation. Obsession. All-consuming passion. This weekend, I fell under the spell of pimento cheese. I was served a pimento cheese appetizer with house-made bread and butter pickles at a rehearsal dinner on Friday night and ate not only my […]

Herbed Potato Crisps with Asiago, Bacon, and Honey

Disclaimer: I was given free Asiago cheese to review for this post. All opinions are my own.  After receiving a huge chunk of mature Asiago DOP in the mail one blissful day last week, I made plan after plan to whip up something deserving of a truly delicious cheese. The Asiago Consortium provided a lot […]

Sweet Potato Waffle Iron Hash Browns with Cheddar, Zucchini, and Bacon

Spring has definitely arrived to Northwest Arkansas. When I say that spring weather has arrived, I mean that we have had temperatures that have been consistently over 40 for at least six days in a row. That’s really all I can ask for.

These dishes are easy to make, and they cook for 15 minutes, giving you time to wake up, get breakfast started, and enjoy a cup of tea (or rush around […]

Sweet Potato, Kale & Bacon Breakfast Skillet

I’ve tried to eat breakfast more regularly as my pathetic excuse for a New Year’s Resolution. Eat breakfast. That’s all I could muster this year – a commitment to doing something that, by nature, I already want to do. Last year, I was busy finishing school and planning a wedding and renovating a house. This […]

Bacon, Ricotta & Cheddar Frittata with a Chive-Cornbread Crust

I haven’t been cooking dinner over the last couple of weeks with all of the wedding to-dos. Between trying to handle loose ends, visiting with friends and family, and trying to stay up-to-the-minute at work, I’ve fairly excluded my after-work dinner routine from the menu. This is not to say at all that I’ve gone […]
