Strawberry, Spinach, and 2 Cheese Grilled Cheese

A creamy Brie, tangy goat cheese all combined with some sweet strawberries and spinach to make one grilled cheese you don’t want to put down. This week is the big move. Okay so it’s not a BIG move like from Alabama to Indiana like we did last year, but we are just moving north of the …

Spinach Salad with Sweet Potatoes

Finally! A salad the husband enjoys! Pictures updated September 2015 Ever since I started drinking more juices for either a breakfast or a lunch or a post-workout drink my body has been craving healthy foods. So I went home and changed my menu plan of Cuban Quail the other week to a simple and easy salad. It actually …

Southwestern Hash

This was the other impromptu dish I came up with when John was away last weekend. It was dinner time and I had been mopping floors and cleaning all day. I had planned all weekend for Saturday night to be my night out to grab an early dinner with my Kindle. But in actuality I …

Sandwich Saturdays

So obivously from the title you can tell I am late for two reasons. I haven’t posted about my Sandwich Saturdays (now it’s Sunday) in a while and then when I looked on my foodie calendar I realized it was National Sandwich Day (yesterday). One day late won’t hurt me…but back to the sandwich. I …

Sesame Soba Noodles

My menu for the week is determined by who I cook for. If it is just John and me then the sky is the limit. I have cooked a lot of my specialties for Supper Club on Wednesday nights, but I hadn’t cooked any Asian dishes until this week. On the menu was PF Changs Mongolian Beef, Fried Rice …

Eggplant & Goat Cheese Sandwiches

I am always trying to think of side dishes to make when I do a pasta dish. When I saw Giada De Laurentiis Grilled Vegetable, Herb, and Goat Cheese Sandwich I thought I would do a spin off of Eggplant Parmesan meets her sandwich. This dish goes perfectly with my fettuccine bolognese or would be fine by itself!    [amd-zlrecipe-recipe:157] …

Tortilla Soup

Typically when I go to a Mexican restaurant I order the same thing. EVERY SINGLE TIME…Bean burrito, cheese enchilada, and rice & beans, and of course white queso. John gets super annoyed. Oh well! But at the house I don’t think I have ever cooked this dish once. Back in Birmingham my friend Ashley and I would have our …

Sundays in the Kitchen

Pesto is Italian for “pounded” meaning it used to be made my mortar and pestle but I love making this uncooked sauce in my mini food processor. It is traditionally basil, pine nuts, parmesan, garlic and olive oil. Now don’t get me wrong the classics are always the best but when you can find other alternatives it’s …

Coleslaw for Supper Club

This creamy coleslaw is a Southern staple at any cookout. (Recipe first posted in 2012, updated in 2014). Just like spinach and salmon, coleslaw was one food item that I used to strongly dislike. I still remember the first time I truly enjoyed it was on the dock of John’s family farm a few years ago. …
