I’ve been on this SERIOUS workout routine for the last several weeks, and have been so impressed by the changes and differences I’ve seen in both my body and day-to-day life. Now, to be clear, I’m always eating fresh food that I cook for myself. But I’m talking about really, really getting into the nitty/gritty
September in New York was probably my absolute favorite. I love sweater and boot weather, and I love crisp mornings. The south is a little different…it’s still in the upper 80s during the day time, but the last few nights have been cooling off. And once those temperatures drop, all I can think about is
Gourmet pulled pork sandwiches? Does such a thing exist? Yes, friends, it really, really does. And it goes a little something like this: tender, rich, melt-in-your-mouth pork seasoned with a perfectly balanced Memphis-style rub, on a toasted bun slathered with spicy sweet red onion chutney (in place of plain old bbq sauce), jalapeño popper pimento
One of the nice things about living in the South is the extended fall season. I love everything about September (and October) from the slight crispness in the air, to the leaves getting ready to explode in those glorious autumn colors. There’s no better time to go hiking and breathe in the natural beauty of the
I think one of my favorite guilty pleasures has got to be jalapeño poppers. It’s been a while since I’ve had them, since cream cheese + Kerri = anaphylaxis. But all that has changed thanks to dairy-free cream cheese. I kinda want to add the people over at Tofutti to my Christmas card list and thank
Normally, I’m all about making my own dough from scratch. That’s the way my grandma and aunt did it, and there’s really no comparison to eating homemade, especially since it’s one of the easiest things to make. But there’s also this part of me that enjoys making dinner in less than thirty minutes some nights.
Fresh herbs should be classified as magical and included in the wizarding world of Harry Potter somewhere. I mean…just think about what they do. You can add them to your favorite soups, stews, spreads, sauces, dinners, appetizers, eggs, or dough and they can transform something from okay to foodgasmic in no time flat. If that
Believe it or not, beef enchiladas are really easy to make. I usually get the ground beef browning in a skillet while I’m making my slightly spicy enchilada sauce, and bam! Both are ready to assemble in just a few minutes, and then the real fun begins. To give the beef a little something extra
Whenever I can make something at home, I do it. I’m not a fan of the mysterious “spices” label that’s on the ingredient list of most foods. Not to sound all conspiracy theorist crazy, but the government allows all sorts of additives to be included under that all encompassing “spices” tag. And you know what?
Burgers for lunch or dinner are always a good idea. I didn’t grill with this recipe, but I did get that wonderfully charred exterior with a nice medium interior, and I did it all indoors using my trusty cast iron skillet! Seriously, if you don’t have one of those you NEED to get one. The
