Late Summer Gazpacho

I love me some ripe heirloom tomatoes. Just. so. good. I’m good with just slicing and eating them, but have been wanting to use them in other recipes, particularly in their raw form. Seems like a waste to cook a ripe heirloom! I’ve never been a huge fan of gazpacho, but when I saw this […]

Fried Green Tomato BLTs

Every time I travel to the south, I can’t get enough fried green tomatoes. They are just so delicious. I’ve been wanting to make them myself and after I saw some other bloggers posting yummy photos involving these seasonal treats, I decided the time was now! One of the best food decisions I’ve ever made. […]

Summer Corn & Zucchini Chowder

Summer corn is one of my favorite vegetables. I could just eat a whole dinner of 3 ears of corn, and maybe a plate of heirloom tomatoes. That is summer happiness right there. When I saw this recipe, I knew I needed to make it ASAP. Then, as fate would have it, I got 5 […]

Cheesy Corn and Veggie Dip

I love a good party dip. I’ve been know to saddle up next to the snack table at a family get together and eat so much chips and dip that I basically have no room left for dinner. This dip is no exception. Despite the fact that this is packed with things like tons of cheese, […]

Cabbage & Collard Slaw with Tahini Dressing

Last year I got collards in my farmshare and wasn’t sure what to do with them. I didn’t want to do the traditional southern style preparation, so I tried this cole slaw instead. I liked it a lot and it was a nice departure from the usual cabbage slaws I make in the summer. This […]

Red, White & Blue Vanilla Bean Cupcakes with Vanilla Bean Buttercream

Happy 4th of July! Even though the weather is a bit gloomy in Pittsburgh this year, this is still one of my favorite holidays. All of the picnic foods and themed drinks and desserts just make me happy. Not to mention all of the pretty fire works and fires and marshmallow roasting that happens after […]

{Where to Shop Wednesday} Piebox

For Christmas this year, my mother-in-law gave me a Piebox. Obviously I was thrilled because who doesn’t need something like this to tote around homemade pies all summer?! I mean, maybe not everyone, but I definitely do. It sure beats make-shifting a carrier out of a cardboard box and towels. I’ve done that far too […]

Blackberry Mint Lemonade

If this glass of refreshingly awesome lemonade doesn’t just scream summer, I don’t know what does. Last weekend we spent an entire, very hot, summer day outside doing yard work and playing. I immediately thought that a tall glass of homemade lemonade would be the perfect drink to have sitting on our porch. My mint […]

Bobby Flay’s Louisiana Burger

Burgers in the summer are just the best.  The more sauce and toppings you can stack on, the better.  And Bobby Flay makes some great burgers.  The remoulade on this burger is delicious.  I really liked blackening the patties in a skillet with the spice rub.  It added a ton of flavor and kept the […]

Spicy Cilantro-Lime Coleslaw

Aaaaand, I’m back to reality… Our 10 day trip to the Carolinas was just lovely.  We spent time in Raleigh with friends, had a week in Kiawah and then ended our trip at Lake Murray just out side of Columbia, SC with family.  I adored all of the time spent with loved ones and experiencing […]
