Travel Guide:  What to do in the Costa Brava

Travel Guide: What to do in the Costa Brava

You would think with the Costa Brava’s proximity to Barcelona and its stunning coastline that more people would flock to this beautiful part of the world. But when I was planning our trip to the Costa Brava two years ago, I found much less info […]

Prosciutto with Melon

Prosciutto with Melon

There are things in this food world that just go together. Bread and butter. Peanut butter and jelly. Tomato and basil. Nutella and banana. Cheese and wine. Milk and cookies. I could go on and on, but instead, I’ll leave you with one pairing that […]

Crema Catalana

Crema Catalana

I need to caveat something I’m about to say with a disclaimer. I LOVE crème brûlée. It is one of my favorite desserts, and I can’t resist ordering it whenever I see it on a dessert menu. It’s perfectly rich and light and not too […]

Zucchini & Herb Savory Scones + 1 Year Blog Anniversary

Hi, friends! One year ago today I hit publish on a website I’d been talking about for a long time and officially started into this food blogging journey. I shared a recipe for Rosemary Blue Cheese Scones with Walnuts & Pancetta. I was insanely nervous […]

Garden Salad with Sesame Miso Vinaigrette

Garden Salad with Sesame Miso Vinaigrette

This is now my third spring with the garden at our house in Nashville, and I still maintain that this time of year is my favorite for the garden. It’s in late spring that the root vegetables and lettuces start becoming harvest ready, and the […]

Tilapia with Mango Jalapeno Salsa

Tilapia with Mango Jalapeno Salsa

We can all agree that tilapia is one of the easiest fish to like if you’re not big on seafood, right? It’s pretty mild, easy to cook, and widely available. I find myself reaching for tilapia for a lot of quick weeknight meals, and they […]

Odd tidbit about me: when I was younger I really hated melted mozzarella cheese. You know, like the melted mozzarella cheese that is a key component of pizza? Didn’t like it. I would take the mozzarella cheese off of my pizza and eat saucy bread […]

Food Guide: Best Places to Eat & Drink in Savannah

Savannah is a quaint and picturesque city – it’s got quiet beauty and a slow pace that make it relaxing and inviting. The kind of place where you want to kick off your shoes, sit on a big ole wrap around porch with a cocktail […]

Vietnam is 12 hours ahead of the US Central time zone (where Nashville falls), which means when we visited Vietnam last year, we really struggled with the jet lag. We arrived in Ho Chi Minh City late on a Sunday night and then boarded a […]

Potage Aux Légumes – French Vegetable Soup

Potage Aux Légumes – French Vegetable Soup

The beginning of spring is such an exciting time for produce – I love seeing new vegetables crop up at the farmers’ markets. Root vegetables, tubers, and salad greens usually lead the charge before the abundance of summer fruit and vegetables arrive. And there’s just […]

How To:  Make Homemade Labneh

How To: Make Homemade Labneh

Making cheese yourself sounds really hard, right? Sounds like it would be a lot of work, you’d need some fancy equipment or ingredients, and it probably wouldn’t be worth the effort, right? Wrong, my friends! Enter homemade labneh. I bet you have all the things […]

Spanish Orange & Olive Salad

Spanish Orange & Olive Salad

Spanish food doesn’t get all the same love that other Mediterranean food does. From my experience in the US at least, we idolize the Mediterranean cuisine of France and Italy, we exoticize Mediterranean food of Morocco and Greece, and we kind of forget about ALL […]
