Low-Carb Meal: Taco Lettuce Wraps

We love tacos around here, but they’re not so friendly to my waistline. As I seek to maintain a low-carb diet, I have to come up with creative ways to enjoy our favorite meals. One of those is taco lettuce wraps. This way I can make my regular taco filling recipe, and I serve it to my family in...

Herbed Bread Stuffing Recipe with Keller’s Creamery

True confessions: I've never cooked a Thanksgiving dinner. I've always gone to my mom's or my mother-in-law's, and in recent years we've been going to my sister-in-law's house for Thanksgiving dinner, but this year I'm going to be cooking! Of course I had to call my mom and ask her for all the family recipes so I can make it taste like home. My favorite part of her Thanksgiving meal is her herbed bread stuffing.

Grilled Tequila Lime Shrimp

Shrimp is one of my favorite things to make in the summertime. It cooks up quickly, and it’s great on the grill. This grilled tequila lime shrimp is tangy, flavorful and delicious, and best of all, it’s ready in about 15 minutes. All you need is garlic, limes, tequila, fresh cilantro (or parsley, if you prefer), olive...

Kale Salad with Cranberries & Almonds

When I stayed at the Grand Hyatt in New York City last winter, I had my first ever kale salad. It was AMAZING. So amazing, in fact, that I ordered it two more times during our trip. I love braised kale and kale chips, but I couldn’t imagine eating raw kale until I had that...

Grilled Turkey Leg Recipe {Perfect for Father’s Day}

This sticky and delicious grilled Grilled Turkey Leg Recipe is reminiscent of the infamous turkey legs at state fairs – perfect for Fathers Day!

Breakfast for Dinner: Biscuits with Sausage Gravy

I grew up in southern Virginia, the home of grits and collards and sausage gravy, but my mom was from Maine. She didn’t grow up on grits and collards and sausage gravy, so she never prepared them in our home. It wasn’t until I was much older that I discovered these Southern culinary delights. Therefore, I feel...

Baked Lemon Chicken Recipe

A few years ago, we gave up cable in an effort to trim some monthly expenses from our budget. There are only two channels we really miss. My husband and son miss ESPN terribly. Me? I miss the Food Network. When we had cable, there were several shows I had set to record every day, but...

Raspberry Champagne Cosmopolitan

Mother’s Day is this weekend, can you believe it? I know that people tend to go out to eat on Mother’s Day, but I think I’ve hosted Mother’s Day dinner more often than I’ve gone out. We already go out to eat after church most Sundays, so it almost feels more festive to stay home,...

Thai Chicken Lettuce Wraps

My latest culinary discovery is the Thai Chicken Lettuce Wrap. Actually, it’s not a new discovery. I’ve been ordering this dish at The Cheesecake Factory for years, but I never tried to make it until a few weeks ago. I’ve been receiving the chicken share from our CSA for the past few months, and most of the cuts...

The Very Best Sweet Potato Fries

My new favorite indulgence is sweet potato fries. They’re paleo-friendly, nutritious, and oh-so-yummy, and this sweet potato fries recipe is super easy! We’ve been getting a bag of locally grown, organic sweet potatoes almost every week from our winter CSA, so I needed to find new ways to cook them. We often bake them and eat...
