Brown Butter Granola! I was never a big granola fan until I started making my own. Store bought granola is always so hard and crunchy, way too sweet, and suffering from raisin overload.

Rosemary Lemon Zucchini Bread is the recipe for those of you in the grips of summer Zucchini Mania! My yard is too shady for a garden so it’s particularly annoying to me to have to buy zucchini at the store when my friends up north can’t give the stuff away. You’ve probably heard the old […]

So, I’m having a little trouble getting into the autumnal spirit. Maybe it’s because we had 2 glorious days of what could be called fall weather down here only to have to turn the AC back on today. Or maybe it’s because there is Pumpkin Madness going on everywhere! Is it just me or has […]

    Breakfast. Dinner. Or Breakfast FOR Dinner. Sausage, Kale & Apple Hash has all those bases covered in a big way. Anything that includes the word hash usually gets my vote. When you start combining good things like smoked sausage, potatoes, apples, and hearty greens it’s hard to go wrong. This hash is bold […]
