Rosemary & Fennel Roast Chicken

rosemary fennel roast chicken

The time has come to spend my afternoons after work and weekend days outside in the yard working in the garden, at the baseball field or sitting on the porch enjoying the awesome weather.  I LOVE to cook, but definitely don't want to be stuck inside over a high maintenance meal, so putting as much in one dish as possible is definitely a top priority.  

Roast chicken is not only delicious, but cooking the whole…

Strawberry Gin Fizz

Growing up in Virginia, in the heart of apple country, picking apples was one of my all-time favorite fall activities.  In the summer it was peaches and blackberries, but in the spring, it was strawberries.  I  can remember lots of cool spring evenings that ended with strawberry shortcake on the back porch and strawberry jam with the leftovers.  
While South Carolina isn't exactly…

A Tribute to Apple Pie

There is supposed to be a food debate that has been going on for a year or so as to which is better: Cake or Pie?

Now, I love a good, moist homemade cake, topped with homemade icing.   I admire those who can decorate cakes and cupcakes, a talent which I do not possess.   I enjoy baking cakes and cupcakes, but, for me, the greatest baking pleasures come from pie-baking.    Cake is chemistry.   It’s…

Cadbury Creme Brownies

Easter is very nearly upon us, and you know what that means...Cadbury creme eggs are everywhere!

Pimento Cheese: My favorite Cheesy Southern Snack Indulgence

Pimento Cheese is probably one of the most outstandingly Southern dishes that is sort of unknown in other parts of the country. It's fame has been spread by the Lee Brothers and other evangelists of Southern cuisine but to some extent it's still the lesser known outside of the South than…

An Insider's Guide to Charleston

Southern City Guide - Durham

One of my favorite things about the South is the abundance of creativity in individually owned businesses.  I'll tell you right now, I'm not a big store, big chain kind of girl and there is a high chance that most of you reading this aren't either.  The small independently owned restaurants and stores are what give our favorite towns character and set us apart.  

This past weekend I traveled up…

White Hot Chocolate w/ Chocolate Whipped Cream

Baby it's cold outside has to be the understatement of the new year.  Almost all of the U.S. is experiencing frigid temperatures, even here in the South. So what's a baker to do to stay warm? Make the best hot chocolate you'll ever have, that's what! I'm a huge fan of white chocolate and because I love to turn things inside out, I decided to make my favorite white hot chocolate and top it with a decadent chocolate whipped cream. Let me say one thing about this whipped cream, you will want to…

Southern Zipper Peas, Please!

zipper peas

These fresh peas came from Bailey's in Pensacola. Named zipper peas for the way the pod opens when the fibrous strand down its center is pulled, these peas are grown primarily in the Southern states due to the warm climate. Freshly picked from their pods, zipper peas have a mild-flavor, are a great source of protein and a classic Southern comfort food. I make them often and enhance the flavor of the…

Christmas Meringues

I've put off making meringue cookies for far too long.  They are, in order of importance (to this gal, anyway):

*Easy to make (and clean up!)--no muss, no fuss

*Surprisingly tasty and with a texture like nothing else

*Gorgeous, dainty, and…
