I will definitely not take credit for the carved pumpkin soup bowls. This is a Shirley (my mom) staple for sure! One of my favorite High School memories was having all of my friends over to my house for dinner before the big Homecoming Dance in the fall. My mom served up Wild Rice Soup in carved out pumpkins (keep in mind there were about 16 of us…).
Ever since then, I want to eat my soup out of nothing other than a pumpkin! Warm up in this chilly weather and enjoy this delicious, yet simple Vegan Corn Chowder! In a pumpkin bowl of course… Read more
Gnocchi, like perogies, have been a staple comfort dish in my family since I can remember. My mom would prepare it with a basic red sauce or simply tossed in melted butter. When it comes to delicious fresh gnocchi, it is always better to keep it simple!
Simple, yet delicious! After cooking school, I have really come to appreciate each individual ingredient and I really believe that this recipe below highlights the beauty of these potatoes! Instead of coating them in sour cream or yogurt, I decided to keep this recipe light with a burst of fresh herbs.
Recently, in the world of Food Blogging, a new trend is experimenting with a pastry called a Galette. In my research, I have seen everything from sweet to savory when it comes to flavors. Me being a more savory girl myself, I’ve decided to create a savory Galette with beets, potatoes, and goat cheese. Overall, beets and goat cheese are one of the best combinations in my opinion and have become very popular in many restaurants! The earthiness of the root vegetable is a fabulous pairing with the bright and creamy flavors of the goat cheese.
Moving away from the south, I realized one of the dishes that I easily took for granted was the Southern Nachos. For whatever reason, some brilliant southerner swapped out tortilla chips for potatoes and added BBQ sauce instead of salsa! My idea of nachos has forever been changed! In Georgia I ate nachos weekly made with crispy homemade potato chips and in Nashville I indulged in nachos made with tator tots as the base.
Instead of making a weekly trip down to Nashville, I’ve decided to create my own Southern Nacho recipe made with fries. Let me tell you, they are pretty darn close to the real stuff! These nachos are also delicious with fried chicken instead of the addition of pulled pork… I mean you might as well, it’s not like your watching your figure with this unbelievable finger licking appetizer!

Curry always takes me back to my study abroad trip in Thailand. You know when people say that the Westernized versions of worldwide cuisines are dramatically different? They are completely right. No American Thai restaurant could have prepared me for the street food in Bangkok. When unfamiliar food becomes your basic diet, no matter how adventurous you are, I found that my whole group after week one would lean towards a dish that brought out familiarity and comfort to them. For me, this dish was the Coconut Thai Curry! Read more
