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 […]

Soft Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies with Walnuts

This recipe for oatmeal chocolate chip cookies tastes like pure comfort to me. What does pure comfort taste like for me? Cashmere and Veuve. Vanilla, butter, oatmeal, toasted nuts, and brown sugar. So I combined all of these items (excusing the cashmere and Veuve) into a new cookie recipe.  I also used a touch of […]

Peanut Butter-Chocolate Chip Oatmeal Skillet Cookie

  When I started making this skillet cookie on Friday morning, I thought I could make it passable as baked oatmeal – a nice, healthy-but-slightly-indulgent breakfast treat. After tinkering with the proportions and flavors, though, I quickly realized that this is no baked oatmeal recipe. Instead, this is a delicious, decadent oatmeal cookie baked in […]

Savory Corn & Cheddar Waffle Ham Sandwich with White Cheddar-Mustard Sauce

I gave myself a bit of a Spring Break this week from sharing delicious recipes! The reason wasn’t a glamorous vacation, or even a staycation, or even leaving work at a reasonable hour. Nope, I felt like zoning out after work, but this was not possible due to the four dogs we had in our […]

Bacon and Blue Cheese Dip

My favorite spot for appetizers is Theo’s. We had an amazing bacon and blue cheese dip last New Years Eve at their Union Kitchen location. They serve the creamy, meaty dip hot, with kettle chips, and it’s pure indulgence at its most, well, indulgent. We rang in the new year happily and with plenty of bacon.This […]

Our Favorite Chocolate Chip Cookie Recipe

Everyone has a favorite chocolate chip cookie recipe. This one is ours. Since we only have a few short days left until New Years Resolutions are pledged, I figured you’d want a few last indulgences while 2013 was still around. That’s the proper way to look at resolutions, right? Hold out until the very last […]

Cinnamon Roll Waffles with Pecans and Cream Cheese Icing

We have had a beautiful snowstorm over the last couple of days. Picturesque, powdery snow and icicles have blanketed my little town. This is the perfect time of year for a winter wonderland to settle in. The Christmas lights are twinkling in the trees on the square and our (real) Christmas tree is up and […]
