It’s Not Delivery – Curry Chicken Pizza

Ugh, Monday.  And tax day.  That’s should be against the law or something.  That’s a lot of “ugh” to handle at the beginning of the week!  And I don’t know about y’all but taxes were brutal this year!  Oh the joys of self-employment. 🙂 Making it through this day, or any rough day, calls for…

Tailgate Time – Pimento Cheese & Brownies

Football season is well under way so that means it’s tailgate time! Well, by tailgate time I mean time to hang out at home in my yoga pants, watching football on my big TV, and stuffing my face with lots of yummy food. Let’s call that “home-gating”!  Sure beats dealing with the crowds, traffic, and…

Berry Pickin’

Tomorrow is October 1st.  Today’s high in Nashville is 68° and there is a chance of frost this weekend.  You would think I’d be breaking out the butternut squash and making a big pot of soup but no, today I’m reminiscing about summer.  Go figure. For those who know me you will know that I…

An Affair to Remember

I.  LOVE.  PIZZA. It’s a love affair that I am not ashamed to admit. I love everything about pizza.  I love it’s ooey gooey cheesiness.  I love it saucy.  I love it piled with pepperoni.  I love it with the season’s freshest veggies (give me more mushrooms!).  I love the smell and feel of yeasty,…

Happy St. Patrick’s Day!

I think St. Patrick’s Day is the perfect comfort food holiday.  Spring is almost here but there are still those chilly, rainy days that remind you that Old Man Winter isn’t quite ready to be finished.  The random changes in weather wreak havoc on my sinuses and cause awful headaches.  My allergies start flaring up. …

Mardi Gras Comfort food – Day 3 Bananas Foster

One word: Cheesecake. I’m sure you’re thinking “But the title of this post said Bananas Foster.  What does cheesecake have to do with Bananas Foster?”.  Well, nothing really BUT today it has EVERYTHING to do with it! When I started on my Mardi Gras posts, I had decided that I was going to attempt to…

I’m Bananas for Banana Bread!

I am not a breakfast person.  Wait, I take that back.  I’m not a morning person.  I LOVE breakfast food: frittatas, crispy bacon, french toast, fruit, pastries of every kind and COFFEE.  Give.  Me.  Coffee. I guess I’m a brunch person or a breakfast for dinner kind of girl.  Those extra few minutes in bed in…
