Berry Greetings from the Future

If I told you that I knew what you’d be eating two days from now for breakfast, would you believe me? You should, because I’m a psychic. Well, a baking psychic. That’s psychic with an ‘-ic,’ not with an ‘-o.’ Thanks very much. That’s right, two days ago I made my world famous berry good…

Fresh Carbs and Post Updates

Thought I'd give you all an update on my situation with the Unscripted Hotel in Durham. I received the nicest email from the hotel manager. He apologised profusely, offered a refund of the stay, and a complimentary next stay. So generous! I look forward to trying to property again and updating my review. He even…

Stuff I Ate in Durham

Durham’s charming nickname of the Dirty D doesn’t scream food scene. But it is a pretty good one. My gal pal and I ate every meal out in the downtown for two days. Here were the highlights. Friday Night’s Stop:  Pizzeria Toro. Buratta (shocking) and grilled peaches with pine nuts and crispy basil. Ricotta dumplings…

Super Model Project: Creamy Parmesan Skillet Eggs

I hate to say, “finally, I made it back from Charleston,” but finally, I made it back from Charleston. That city is so charming and full of so many insane food options, that you just can’t help but to indulge. I’m looking forward to getting back into the swing of healthy, low carb eating, that…

Magnolia’s

Not sure if you’re excited or disappointed, but we’ve hit our final stop on our Charleston food tour. I’m just beginning to figure it how four pounds are gained in three days, despite gratuitous walking. So. Brunch at Magnolia’s. I’ve been here before and this visit did not disappoint just as the last. But, first,…

Sweet Potato Hash

I realize I’m late to the scene on this, but I’m happy to report the ultimate life hack lives up to its name. That’s right, hash browns in the waffle iron. Pros: Insta-hashbrowns. No added oil for frying. Worried about shredded potato sticking, but it was no problemo at all. Cons: Where has this been…

The Super Model Project:  French Toast Casserole

I’ve been wanting to make this recipe for so long that this past weekend I strong armed a bunch of friends who like to cook into having a potluck brunch. We were all iced/snowed in and what else did we have to do anyway? Finally. My casserole. After calling around to local markets during Snowmageden…

Mayhem Breakfast Pizza

The best Sundays in the world are grabbing a coffee and the NY Times, throwing on some jazz, and cooking a savory breakfast while the person who gives you butterflies curls up on the couch to start their day and trade fantasy football players. Brunch should be served with champagne and then you are going…

ISwearThey’reDelicious- Cottage Cheese Pancakes

Thanksgiving is over! No more carbs with a side of potatoes, with another kind of carb on the side. Nope. Time to kick the habit. I found this amazing recipe for cottage cheese pancakes that are gluten-free to boot. Even if you don’t like cottage cheese, I promise you don’t taste it at all. They…

Savoury Moments

Hurricane Matthew blew a VIP house guest into my world last weekend. And VIP house guests warrant VIP mornings. So, here’s what you’re going to do: Check for the NYT at least three times only to conclude that the category 4 hurricane took it on quite a journey instead of to your coffee table. Make…

Loaded Waffles for the Win

This weekend was a game changer in the waffle world. I decided to use the extra sheet of puff pastry that was lurking in the freezer from having company last weekend and throw it to the waffle iron. I’m glad I did because LOOK AT THIS. That’s a waffle stuffed with crumbled turkey bacon, chives,…

Berry Patch Strikes Back!

A seemingly endless supply of house guests has my baking game on overdrive. For tomorrow morning, I resurrected, the always wonderful Greek Yogurt Blueberry cake. I must say, this is the best one yet! I used a spring form pan instead of a cake pan and perfected the crumble if I do say so myself….
