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 […]

Pumpkin Baked French Toast

Second pumpkin breakfast item?  It’s officially Fall.  As if you couldn’t tell because, obvi, it’s only, like… 85 degrees outside. Totes Fall.  It has been raining here, however, so at least I can look outside and pretend the cold temps are among us. And and AND I can eat like it, too. If I could, […]

Brussels Sprout & Sweet Potato Saute

I know what you’re thinking. Brussels sprouts??? Why?!  I’m a mind-reader like that. But these are no ordinary brussels sprouts. There are sweet potatoes involved. Also BACON.  If there are any vegetarians out there who read my blog, I apologize for my inability to avoid adding bacon to dishes that could be vegetarian (or vegan). […]

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 […]
