Let’s talk about drunk food for a minute, shall we?
Drunk food is a carb- and fat-bombed greasy mess; the kind of food you eat with your hands or out of a paper wrapper, usually deep-fried and smothered in cheese. Drunk food is the kind of food you eat with gusto and without guilt because, after [...]
Here is a thing that usually happens in my garden: I plant garlic in the late fall/early winter when I finally remember to get around to it, and when there is absolutely nothing else to do. Then I completely forget about it for a good six months and then, about this time [...]
Pretty certain I will never be a hand model as there is always dirt under my fingernails. Sorry.
Yeah, I know what you’re thinking. You’re thinking, geez, couldn’t you have posted this recipe before the Superbowl, so that I could’ve had something easy and delicious to eat while we watched the game commercials?
You know how there are just certain foods that are the essence of summer, of the fresh-luscious bounty of the earth? There is the juicy peach, the corn-on-the-cob, the thick crimson wedges of watermelon; there is tomato pie and fresh pesto and open-faced tomato sandwiches that must be eaten over the sink to catch the [...]
I used to not think meal planning was all that hard. In fact, I used to not think about it at all beyond: “I’m hungry. What’s in the refrigerator?” or, “I wonder if there’s a box of mac n’ cheese in the pantry?”

To be honest, I’d never thought about frying hard-boiled eggs until this cookbook came along.
Because, you know, hard-boiled eggs are already cooked.
This recipe is a variation on the pan-crisped deviled eggs—and a simpler one, at that.
There’s no messy stuffing to deal with, or salad dressing. Just hardboiled eggs sliced in half, cooked in oil and [...]
If you are from the South, then you will know that any church potluck worth its salt is going to have deviled eggs.
If you are truly a southern cook, you may even have a platter with small divots in it specifically for serving deviled eggs. In which case you will know that deviled eggs contain [...]
These are the food memories I have of visiting Paris with my mom over a decade ago: nutella and banana crepes served in paper from sidewalk vendors; chocolate-filled buttery croissants for breakfast; and warm melty rounds of goat cheese on baguette slices with salad.
And of those three foods, it is the goat cheese toasts I [...]
Hey, you! Yes, you.
Do you wanna know a secret? One of the secrets to delicious southern cooking?
Okay, lean in close and I’ll tell you.
The secret is…
Alright, maybe you shouldn’t have leaned in that close.
Now please try not to gag as you imagine obese SAM’s Club patrons filling their carts with gallon vats of Hellman’s.
I am [...]
I have one word, and one word only, to say about these biscuits.
That word is: dude.
No, wait, maybe I want that word to be butter! Or garlic! Or cheesy!
I first had these ‘copycat’ biscuits in high school when my friend Heather made them. And I have never forgotten how delicious and cheesy and garlicky they [...]
