Sour Cherry & Brie Sandwich

Sour Cherry & Brie On Oat Nut Bread

Not too long ago, I thought every meal had to be perfection. I’d carefully plan every ingredient to match my bakery and farmers market purchases. I’d only make this sandwich with the perfect bakery loaf of dark whole grain bread. […]

Pimento Cheese — Super Bowl 2016

Seriously, this was the best pimento cheese I’ve ever made. It’s all about finding the best cheddar. Or, more accurately, it’s about finding the cheddar that you consider to taste the best… to you. For us, the 5 year organic sharp white cheddar (From Your Dekalb Farmers Market) was the […]

Monkey Butter

This was love at first taste. To be brief, this is tropical jam perfection. I love coconut. So, I’ve added a lot of shredded coconut to my jam. But, feel free to add coconut to your own taste.

Make this NOW! You won’t be sorry.

Psst… […]

Sweet Bavarian […]

Grainy Mustard

This mustard may be easily adapted to any taste. Use wine instead of vinegar, if you like. Or, add a mix of wine with a splash of vinegar. Or, if using wine, after the initial 8 hour soak add a splash of verjus. Then, add any additional herbs, spices or […]

Rum Runner Pimento Cheese Spread

Two types of gouda and Bellavitano Rum Runner Sartori (about $17 a lb at Whole Foods) make this version of pimento cheese a little bit on the spendy. But, isn’t that always the way? The quality of the ingredients make the dish what it should be.

A sprinkle of Aleppo […]
