Biscoff Cookie Dough Balls
Let’s do this the Friday way. Down and dirty, just the facts. Brody is absolutely freaking adorable. I don’t care if you like dogs or not, Brody in a sweater is heartwarming. Tonight I am having this man take me to see Paranormal Activity. For two reasons: 1. I have a love of scary movies, [...]
Mini Donuts: 100 Bite-Sized Donut Recipes to Sweeten Your “Hole” Day
Remember when I told you I was writing a cookbook all about Mini Donuts? Well it’s here! Ok, so not totally here. More like it’s off at the printers being made into a book…but I have the cover and the book in PDF form on my computer. So in my mind, it’s here. I sent [...]
Peach BBQ Slow Cooker Pork with Cilantro Citrus Slaw
The older I get, the more ok I get with certain vegetables. Sure I always ate things like broccoli, carrots, squash and what not…but put some cabbage in front of me and I was out of there. There is still no way you will get me to eat slimy okra, but I am slowly coming [...]
Cranberry Cushaw Bread
I am flying out to California in a little over 24 hours. I have nothing packed, I need to do laundry, I am pretty sure the cats are out of food, and I am not even really sure if my flight leaves in the morning or at night. However, thanks to this little gem, I [...]

I have this problem where I get started on something and I just can’t stop. I think most people would call it obsessive, but for me it’s just normal. Once I get started on something, I can eat it for the next 5 days and not care. That Fontina Grilled Cheese with Arugula & Truffle [...]
Southern Buttermilk Biscuits
My life would end without biscuits. Ok, maybe that is a little dramatic. My life would not be worth living without biscuits. Yes, I think that is more accurate. There is something magical about biscuits, which is why I have decided to devote a week to biscuits. We had a whole week of cushaw, so why
Wannabe Green Smoothie
Let’s head back to elementary school shall we? Red + Green = …..gross brown I have been terrified of the infamous “Green Monster” (i.e. a green colored smoothie made with spinach) for over a year. Spinach DOES NOT belong in smoothies! I read many a blog claiming you couldn’t taste the spinach. That
Behind The Scenes at GMJ
This past Saturday I woke up at 4am to go bake cupcakes and poptarts on Good Morning Jacksonville. After 13 cups of coffee, Jorge and I finally made it to the studio downtown. Once we got there, we started hauling everything in from the car. I was totally surprised when the producer told me that ...
Cushaw! How to clean it and how to use it!
Let’s play a game! What…you don’t want to play? Well too damn bad. Which of the squashes above is a Cushaw (pronounced Coo-Shaw)? I will give you a hint…it’s not orange. Oh and it’s not warty looking either. …You didn’t even try to guess did you? You just scrolled right on down. Well fine, just ...
