Honey Cumin Roasted Fall Vegetables

GUYS. This here is my love. As sad as that may be, it’s da truf. Gosh, I’ve missed being myself on this blog and being able to write things such as “da truf.”Sorry if it’s a little much. But not really.   Roasting vegetables is pretty much one of my favorite hobbies (laugh if you […]

Walnut Encrusted Grouper

Guys, sometimes my life makes me laugh. I guess that’s a good thing, right, that I can laugh at myself? Like every time I start trying to explain my weekend adventures…“Yeah, man, that was an awesome trip to Kroger! There’s some pretty cool stuff on sale.” Yeah, laughter is a good thing. And there are […]

Creamy Polenta with Worcestershire Wine Chicken & Caramelized Butternut Squash

Somethin’ about these long titles, man. Pretty sure there’s a direct correlation between the recipe title length and the taste. It’s true at least for this; I mean, really.

Baked Tomato Basil Chicken with Sweet Corn Risotto

Swim practice has me craving ALL. THE. CARBZ. I never noticed just how much truth there was to the whole “energy” thing until now. So it’s a good thing, I guess, that I made this dish this week. Not that any of it lasted all week. Nope.  We put it all away rather quickly. Because […]

Blackened Catfish with Sweet Corn Maque Choux

Here we go again with the corn. Maybe I’m overdoing it- you know, the whole corn thing. Don’t worry; summer’s nearly over,which means that with the end of corn season… it’s PUMPKIN TIME. Guys, I’m more obsessed with that stuff than corn.Last week I bought 5 cans of it at Kroger because it was over […]

Marinated Vegetable Salad

And the health food craze continues! I laughed as I typed that sentence because this box of pralines and Iare currently having a staring competition. Hey, it’s all about the balance. But seriously, though, these marinated vegetables… they’re all the things. All the things plus artichoke hearts. Because I don’t particularly care for those. But […]
