I’ve been smitten with sweet potatoes for a long time, but I only recently began baking with them. Now that I have, I can readily and confidently say that if I never see another pumpkin dessert, I won’t mind at all. Anything pumpkins can do, sweet potatoes can do better.…Continue

This is Amanda from High Heels to Hot Wheels! Hope y'all are enjoying this fall weather!
A few weeks ago we took a family trip to the store. I generally enjoy doing the grocery shopping sans husband and child for several reasons. I prefer to do the shopping for the family, because no matter how specific the list detailing all the things that we "need" is, Drew and Hunter will always come back with…Continue
A heartier version of a cookie jar favorite, perfect for fall:
Mama was known in our small town for her oatmeal chocolate chip cookie recipe. When the other kids at school sold Krispy Kreme donuts for fundraisers, I sold her cookies and she donated the ingredients so the organization could keep all of the profits. When I was in high school, I would bring a huge shopping bag filled with gift bags of cookies for friends and teachers. The second year I did that, I…Continue
Did ya'll have 4H where you lived growing up? We did, and each elementary school student was required to give an oral presentation as 4th, 5th, 6th, and 7th graders. I always dreaded those things…Continue
When it comes to entertaining, I like to keep things simple by serving a pre-mixed drink from a pitcher -- that way no one has to play bartender all night. And when it comes to pitchers full of drinks, it doesn't get much easier or tastier than sangria. This version has a seasonal twist with its pears,…Continue
So part of…Continue

People are always asking me when I host a group of thirty people or so for a party in NYC, "how can you cook all this food?" or "It must have taken you hours to do all this!!" The truth is a well done dinner party for more than 4 takes some planning but is actually not all that hard when you keep several rules of thumb in mind.
The first rule for easy summer entertaining is keep it simple. Over the years I have cooked for a lot of groups. And I have to say that unless they are…Continue

It’s getting to be that time of year when I start wanting classic Southern dishes like collard greens and black-eyed peas.
I was in Whole Foods the other day and spied a big ol’ barrel of dried black-eyed peas and just had to have some!
Here’s my recipe for classic black-eyed peas. Enjoy!

I was weaned on sweet tea. My Mama tells the story of how I, just a wee thing on a hot summer day in our hot car, asked, “Does you have any tea in your pocketbook?” She would make pitchers of the amber liquid to keep in our motel rooms when we traveled, because it was all that I would drink. Not water. Not soft…Continue
FUDGE. This is a post about fudge. More specifically, fudge frosting laced with bourbon and pecans. It's rich, folks. It'll make you smack your lips and pine for a glass of cold milk. If you're on a mission to impress a chocolate lover, a bourbon aficionado, a fan of both bourbon and chocolate, or a human being, this frosting…
A few months back, a friend of mine inquired about the best macaroni and cheese in town and where he could find it. His facebook post quickly drew a crowd. Seems Athenians are full of opinions when it comes to the star of potlucks, family reunions, and bbq joints. It was fun to see the chatter going on all day...some like theirs topped with bread crumbs or crackers and some would never think of such an embellishment. Many commented that they only use 'the box' recipe or rely on Stouffer's…Continue
As the story goes, the Southside was named for the South Side of Chicago's bootlegging joints. During Prohibition, citrus and sugar were mixed with bathtub gin to make it drinkable. Even if it wasn't one of the creations of that era, it is still a delicious gimlet variation. In the years since, it has become an…Continue
Okay, so I ran out of black food coloring so I made it a Charleston Green! Now it's Southern Black Licorice!Continue
