Julia Child’s Chicken Supremes with Mushrooms and Cream and Green Beans

Happy 100th Birthday Julia Child! I like to try and remember Julia’s birthday every year because she had such a big influence in modern cooking. She changed the way Americans cooked and part of her legacy is bringing us cooking on television. So far I […]

Whole 30 Day 11

Whole 30 Day 11

 For breakfast this morning, I chopped up one of my leftover mini hamburgers and mixed it into two scrambled eggs. I topped it with pico de gallo and had a little homemade applesauce on the side. Of course I had some black coffee to get […]

Whole 30 Day 7

Whole 30 Day 7

This morning for breakfast I finished off the lasts of the turkey sausage along with two over easy eggs cooked in extra virgin olive oil. I know the idea of eggs nearly every morning can be boring, but if you practice lots of different ways […]

Whole 30 Day 5

Whole 30 Day 5

Yesterday I felt good, but today I feel really great! As I look back, I realize I felt a little lethargic my first 3 days of Whole 30 and I’m quite sure if it was the diet change…not a lot was changing except no butter, […]

Bean and Cauliflower Salad with Sunflower Seeds and Sun Dried Tomato Vinaigrette

Third post of the month-so glad to be getting back to making more recipes. Today’s recipe is another one that’s great with grilled food, and is perhaps appropriate for father’s day because it’s more of a manly salad because there’s no wimpy lettuce just lemon […]

Beef Vegetable Soup

Beef Vegetable Soup

For a borderline adventure this past weekend, I tried a new local branch of grocery stores instead of the usual Wal-Mart. I definitely prefer local markets to Wal-Mart because they usually have interesting sales going on. The grocery store, United, seems local to the Texas […]

When my parents came down to Georgia for my graduation and move, I was glad to have some of minestrone soup on hand, which is hearty and affordable. This recipe is derived from a recipe by Ellie Krieger, featured in the 2010 Food Network magazine. […]

While I was at Whole Foods recently, I picked up an ingredient that I have wanted to cook with for a while but haven’t been able to find. This special ingredient is called farro, which is an ancient grain related to wheat. I had never […]
