Asparagus and Walnut Pesto Pasta

Mama, it’s HOT. Today I was in the middle of a patio deep clean and I’m absolutely sure my skin slid off my body and oozed onto the concrete. That’s pretty gross. Too gross for a food blog? Let me try this again. What a wonderful summer day we had! (better?) Gosh, the warmth of […]

After a rental car trip from St. Augustine to Jacksonville, 2 flights with a stop in Dallas, a shuttle bus to our car in the economy parking lot, and the half hour treck to our house, we made it home. Tired, sunburned and one of us with a broken toe due to surfing (not me) […]

I know. I know. I cooked shrimp like 5 minutes ago. But when the man with the dangling nose requests shrimp with green beans and rice, I obey. I jump up and down like a 5-year old girl about to pee her pants because she loves shrimp so much, then I get to cooking. I […]

Let Your Kitchen Do The Work

Today was one of those days where I drove home in a brain-fried haze and walked into my house wondering if I was even in the right house.  I remember petting a little black, happy animal.  I’m not sure what it was. As my eyes began to focus, so did my stomach. So, of course […]
