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 [...]

So you know how I was talking about being into heritage stuff lately? I am still on that kick, which is why I’m going to introduce you to one of my favorite things: lemon curd. I’m not fully sure that it’s heritage, but oh well. When I think about lemon curd, Downton Abbey and fancy sitting rooms with high tea and scones come to mind. Maybe it’s not completely accurate, but it’s what I think of. Either way, curds are [...]

Lately, I have been on a bit of a heritage kick. In the garden, I am loving the heritage varieties of allllll the veggies. In my home, I am incorporating different pieces from my grandparents into my decor and general life rhythms; and in my kitchen, not only am I working on adapting some recipes from my grandmother’s Hungarian cookbook into versions that are gluten and corn-free, I am looking at heritage recipes in general. That is where this grapefruit [...]

Do you ever hear someone describe a drink or recipe you haven’t tried before, and simultaneously think “get in my belly now” and “how on earth will that taste?” When Elizabeth proposed this recipe, the "Sweet, and Yet..." created by our friend Stephanie over at Rosebud Coffee, (who our sister company Ampersand Dinner partnered with earlier this month for a Valentine’s day event), I had that very reaction. I enjoy the taste of cardamom, and I enjoy the taste of [...]

  Does anyone else ever need just a bite of something sweet -- but not too sweet? That is me almost all the time. I like dessert, but I’m generally more into savory foods, so I prefer my sweets to be a little more subtle. This is why I like panna cotta so much: it’s sweet, versatile, and can be customized with any number of toppings. This particular recipe for panna cotta is a gem. It’s dairy free and made [...]

Do you ever get bored, drinking the same old beverages? I do. In my daily life I drink the same rotation of water, coffee, and tea. A cocktail or glass of wine will occasionally make an appearance, but I largely stick to routine, which is boring and mostly my fault, I’ll admit it.. The force of habit keeps me in my rut, and I forget my ability to think creatively about my options. Thankfully, the currently changing season brings a [...]
