Italian Olive Oil Cake with Honeyed Mascarpone & Figs

Italian Olive Oil Cake with Honeyed Mascarpone & Figs

If I could describe Italian olive oil cake in one word, it would hands down be: luxurious. Olive oil cake is no more or less complicated than any old regular cake, but it truly tastes like a special treat. Italian olive oil cake is richer, […]

Smoky Cajun Baked Okra

Smoky Cajun Baked Okra

Okra is a vegetable I didn’t have a lot of exposure to before moving down to Nashville five years ago. The extent of my exposure was watching Tom Collichio exclaim his distaste for its slimy texture season after season of Top Chef, which I watched […]

Blueberry & Peach Flaugnarde (Clafoutis)

Blueberry & Peach Flaugnarde (Clafoutis)

I will confess, I’ve been making variations of clafoutis recipes for years without any idea that when you make a clafoutis with a fruit other than cherries, it’s not actually a clafoutis anymore. As I write these posts for you, I always like to do […]

Savory Watermelon Salad

Savory Watermelon Salad

It’s time to get grown-up about your summer watermelon. Melon salads that aren’t all the way sweet and aren’t all the way savory are all the rage right now, and I am here for it. We already dipped our toes into these waters with the […]

Peach and Prosciutto Pizza

Peach and Prosciutto Pizza

There are two phases of The Peach Truck excitement in Nashville – when The Peach Truck starts operating for the season, and when Freestone Peaches come into season. If you’ve ever eaten a peach early in the season and wondered why the pit didn’t easily […]

Garden Zucchini Fritters

Garden Zucchini Fritters

The first time I ever grew zucchini in the garden at our house, I was amazed out how quickly and easily the plant grew. It’s a plant that you start by directly sowing the seed into the ground, not by starting the plant indoors first […]

Marinated Peach and Tomato Salad

Marinated Peach and Tomato Salad

In Tennesse, peak summer produce has finally started to arrive. If you follow along with me on Instagram you may have seen my epic haul from the farmers market yesterday – I went a little crazy and came home with tomatoes, peaches, beans, zucchini, edamame, […]

Thai Green Curry Mussels

Thai Green Curry Mussels

Thai curries are a bit of an addiction for me when it comes to easy and interesting meals. Store bought curry paste is a game changer in this regard. I’ll sing the praises of store-bought curry paste all day long – it’s a time-saving technique, […]

Sesame Miso Shishito Peppers

Sesame Miso Shishito Peppers

There are few things I enjoy more than slow Saturday mornings spent perusing a farmer’s market. They are my favorite place to find unique ingredients. And if I find myself in a cooking rut, they spark creativity in a way no Pinterest perusing or cookbook […]

Mediterranean Avocado Dip

Mediterranean Avocado Dip

So, picture this – you’re moving to a totally different country to pursue a new job. Everything feels so incredibly different. Family and friends aside, what are the things you miss the most about your life at home right now? Is it your bed? Your […]

Crunchy Thai Papaya Salad

Crunchy Thai Papaya Salad

When my husband and I decided to travel to Thailand for our honeymoon the things we were looking forward to most were not the idyllic beaches or stunning temples (though we certainly loved both of those things) – the thing we were absolutely most excited […]

Spanish Clam and Chorizo Pasta

Spanish Clam and Chorizo Pasta

Pork and paprika are two heavy-hitting Spanish ingredients – when they’re together in a meal, I’m immediately transported back to Spain. This pasta with Spanish chorizo and lots of sweet paprika is no exception. It’s full of bright, Mediterranean flavors that are worthy of a […]
