Seafood Pot Pie

Before you say Lauren another pot pie? That was actually my sister in laws reaction (said in a loving joking way of course). Especially since her husband’s favorite meal I’ve ever cooked is this one. But this Seafood Pot Pie might be my favorite! No I am not just saying that because it’s my new recipe I am saying it because it’s the truth. Who doesn’t love the classic chicken pot pie, or a beef pot pie? I mean I even made Continue Reading…

Mushroom Ravioli

Love is in the air and Valentine’s Day is right around the corner. So I guess the big question is how are you going to celebrate? John and I personally have never really cared to celebrate. With our anniversary in a little less than a month away we just hold off. And I tell him besides our anniversary I’d rather get flowers randomly throughout the year as a surprise anyways. But I guess whether it’s for Valentine’s Day, an anniversary Continue Reading…

Roasted Grape, Butternut Squash and Kale Salad

Have you ever roasted grapes before? And then put them in a salad? No? Well me neither until I did a review for the Food52 Mighty Salads Cookbook. I mean I don’t think it could get better – a salad with with veggies, fruit, and cheese? Yes please! The chapters are broken down to Leafy Salads (like this one), Less-Leafy Salads, Grain & Bean Salads, Pasta & Bread Salads, Fish & Seafood Salads, and Meat Salads. So as you can tell Continue Reading…

Black Eyed Peas, Collard Greens and Sausage Pizza

How are we over halfway through January already? I was planning on ringing in the new year with this  Black Eyed Peas, Collard Greens and Sausage Pizza or what I like to call Soul Food Pizza. But let’s be honest I reminded you that it’s my busiest time of year for work so it’s a little hard. And then we lost my dear Granddaddy last week so I have not really been on social media or up to blogging. Oh and Continue Reading…

Creamy Chicken, Mushroom and Brie Soup

You know when you’ll need this Creamy Chicken, Mushroom and Brie Soup? Today! If you look outside our window right now it’s snowing. And my two toddlers could not be more thrilled. The only downside to this of course is when we have to tell them it’s time to come inside before they freeze to death. John Grayson was actually born in Indiana so we were used to snow for months in the winter but down south that’s a different Continue Reading…

Mashed Butternut Squash with Goat Cheese and Brown Butter

Who’s ready for a food coma?!     That’s where normally if this were a text I’d find the girl with both hands in the air because I am so excited about all the food. So what are you in charge of on Thursday? I’m in charge of a glazed ham, deviled eggs, and sweet potato biscuits. I also did a little trial run for some new dishes this year: a sausage, apple, cranberry dressing and mini pecan pies. So Continue Reading…

Holiday Cheese Ball

How is it already time for Thanksgiving? I feel like just yesterday that I was talking about fall finally being here. And now winter is only 1 month away. If you’ve seen Instagram lately my crew has been a little busy. A week in Disney – then 4 days of a fever virus. Isn’t it funny after a vacation you feel like sometimes you need another vacation? Why is that? But I guess that vacation will be next week when kids Continue Reading…
