…the little I know about food bloggin’
I get at least 3 emails a week asking for advice on how to have a successful food blog or how to “get more readers”. At first it was flattering…Y’all actually think I know what I am doing?! HA! I am just learning as I go — like every other blogger out there. If you [...]
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 [...]
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 ...
Marbled Red Velvet Cheesecake Brownies
It’s January 20th, and I am bringing you a Valentine’s day dessert! That’s right, for once I am actually bringing you a holiday dessert before the holiday! Pigs are on fire and hell is flying…or, you know, whatever that saying is. We should all take a moment and enjoy this one time, never gonna ...
Brown Butter, Brown Sugar Cookies
I love when readers tell me that I am obviously not as “novice” as my blog’s name claims to be. And thankfully for all of us, it’s true. I know my way around a kitchen these days. But when I tell you that wasn’t always true, I mean it. It used to take me for-freaking-ever to chop [...]
Idaho Potato Harvest
Last week I spent most of my days covered in dirt and half buried under pounds of potatoes. No, I wasn’t on some weird episode of Dirty Jobs…I was celebrating the 75th anniversary of the Idaho Potato Commission by attending the Idaho Potato Harvest! When the wonderful people behind the Famous Idaho
Donuts make you feel better.
I was working on taking some photos of these darling Lemon Poppy Seed Donuts, when I caught this view from behind my lens. This is “Lil’ Bit” but we call her Mama. She is 12 years old, and I have officially had her longer than half of my life. I don’t remember what it’s [...]
Goat Cheese Stuffed Dates
I want to talk about Dates today, but first we have to talk about “Stuffed”. My past three recipe posts have been stuffed… Stuffed Dates, Peanut Butter Stuffed Brownies, and Pulled Pork Stuffed Sweet Potatoes. I have no idea what my hang up is with everything stuffed. So no, this isn’t like a ...
Seattle As Seen Through An iPhone
I just got home from waking up to this magical view each morning…and I already miss it. Of course I missed my 4 legged babies and Jorge, but if I could manage to just scoop up my life and drop it in Seattle — I totally would. I get so many emails from people about [...]
