Roasted Chicken with Fig Butter

Uhhhhh yeah. That would be fig butter all over this thing. But before we begin, is it bad form to want to offer a hurricane a drink? Isaac is going to be here shortly and I’m so excited I’m putting on dang mascara. Fig butter. Doesn’t it sound so Downton Abbey or something? “Me Lady, […]

Chicken and Vegetable Minestrone

Back to liiiiife. Back to realityyyy. Can I just say that my back yard looks absolutely nothing like the beach? Can I also just say that in my rush to get out the door last week I forgot to turn on the dishwasher before we left? And can I ask if it’s completely disgusting to […]

Fondue: The Healthy Way To Eat Cheese, Right?

Last night a girlfriend came over and we ate cheese.  A lot of cheese.  There was much of the dipping into the cheese.  Don’t worry, we ate our vegetables.  We coated them in cheese.  We had good, nutritious bread too.  Soaked in cheese.  We were this close to dipping any and all household objects into […]
