My aunt and godmother passed away a few of weeks ago.  She was a woman who wore large earrings, red lipstick, expensive perfume, and had big Texas hair. She also loved to bake. This is one of the things I remember most about her. The Christmas after my grandmother passed away, I received a cookbook from this aunt, and my mom. It was the cookbook of my family---where all of the secrets were kept. It had been awhile since I [...]

When I think about summer, I think about getting outside and grilling. My preferred flavor of summer is a mix of watermelon, charred meat, a cold lemonade, and deviled eggs. I grew up in the South where a crystal  deviled egg platter is something in everyone’s china cabinet,and having a plastic one with a lid to take to cookouts is almost required. However, I remember deviled eggs being a special treat, because they took a lot of time to make. [...]

Do you have certain meals that remind you of your childhood? I do. This green chili egg casserole is one of them. My mom would make it for church functions or her non-profit events; and every time she did, I prayed that there would leftovers, because this amazing cheesy casserole was always a treat to wake up to. Over the past few months, my life has been filled to the brim with activities, social events, work, and dealing with my [...]

My mother recently took a trip to France to visit my uncle and his wife, Ann, who live in a small town that borders Geneva, Switzerland. She had two requests for her trip: visit a lavender field, and eat a proper French crêpe. When she told this to my relatives, they were somewhat puzzled--because in all their time in France, they had never eaten a crêpe! Undeterred, a few days into my mom’s trip, they found a small restaurant that [...]

The Netflix Original Zumbo’s Just Desserts  has been a bit of a late night obsession for me recently. Nights I’m not able to sleep, I stay up and watch an episode or two (sometimes more) of this fun-filled and colorful baking show. And to say my dreams after watching an episode are of “sugarplums,” would be an understatement. The most difficult part of watching a show like this--or really any baking show when you have food allergies--is that it makes [...]

I am the daughter of a very “type A” engineer. My father was, and is, a meticulous person who created charts and graphs ALL the time. He once told me that his favorite computer program was Excel--so not mine. However, I am very very thankful for his knowledge of the program, because it has helped me with my business.Who knew?! His list-making tendency always came in handy when it came to grocery shopping. This helped to make the time at [...]

Thanksgiving is a difficult holiday for me. I love the gatherings of friends and loved ones, but I am not always full of thanks, especially these past few years. My husband and I have had a really rough time trying to figure out our careers, our faith, where to live, family life, and a lot more stuff--which can be pretty common to all of us! The hardest part is that I am not with my family for the holiday. Ever [...]
