Sweet Potato Fries

I made sweet potato fries in the oven yesterday, and I snacked on them while watching an episode of “Forensic Files” on HLN as my boys watched football in the living room. And while we’re on the subject of forensics, how and why anyone ever believes they are going to get away with any crime just astounds me. Show More Summary

Self-Rising Biscuits

This is a very old, very easy biscuit recipe for those times you don’t have a second to waste. They’re sometimes called Southern Biscuits, sometimes called Southern Buttermilk Biscuits, sometimes called 3-Ingredient Biscuits (even though,...Show More Summary

Cheesy Cauliflower Soup

Yesterday I made a cheesy version of my mom’s cauliflower soup because the weather outside, while still beautiful, has been just barely chilly enough to trigger the I NEED SOUP NOW mechanism in my central nervous system, and a creamy, comforting soup just sounded good to me. Show More Summary

Chocolate Pie

Whenever my husband, the strapping stallion I call Marlboro Man, imagines chocolate pie—and I imagine that he imagines it frequently, because it’s one of his favorite desserts—he doesn’t think of French Silk Pie or Chocolate Chiffon Pie or Chocolate Chess Pie or any other variation. Show More Summary

Beautiful Roasted Vegetables

I was in the big city last week, and I decided about an hour into my journey that I was hungry. So I stopped at a lovely grocery store that’s been in Tulsa forever, because they have a little section of to-go foods that I love, and I can usually find something delicious that isn’t a burger.

Homemade Frappuccino!

Guess what? I have something to tell you! It’s very important. Are you ready? Here goes. Today is National Coffee Day! No really. It is. And while we’re on the subject, what entity decides official days in our world? National Pancake...Show More Summary

Black Bean Burger

My husband and I celebrated our wedding anniversary yesterday, and I’d say as marriages go, ours is pretty darn good. We have four kids, work pretty hard, and spend most of our time together, which is just fine with us since we really like each other and all that. Show More Summary

My Favorite Blender!

Today, because I’m back from my trip, because I slept until 6:30 am and it felt really nice, because the weather is getting cooler, and because I love ya, I’m giving away three (3) Blentec blenders, each with an extra blender pitcher to make life worth living on busy cooking days! I love this blender. Show More Summary

Shells & Cheese (and Bacon and Peas)

Sometimes you feel like making macaroni and cheese that involves making a roux, then making a white sauce, then adding cheese to making it a cheese sauce. And sometimes you don’t. This ultra-simple, kid-friendly recipe for pasta shells and cheese is absolutely scrumptious and so darn easy to make. Show More Summary

Chicken Quesadillas

Chicken Quesadillas are absolutely a go-to recipe in our household, but while I’ve made them on my show (and have posted different variations of quesadillas here through the years), I just realized yesterday that I’ve never posted the recipe! I’m organized and on top of things like that. Show More Summary

Chicken Avocado Pizza

I just got home from a soccer tournament all weekend and was making plans for what I’m cooking all week when I remembered a recipe I photographed a few months ago that I plum forgot to share! And the recipe doesn’t even have plums in it! Yes, I’m a little loopy today. Show More Summary

Browned Butter M&M Cookies

Browned butter is one of life’s pure pleasures, whether it’s spooned over fish, tossed with popcorn, or sipped with a straw. Just kidding on the straw thing. I think. Browned butter cookies, as you can imagine, are one of the most miraculous uses of browned butter there is. Show More Summary

Tomato Tart

My sister Betsy just left yesterday after a nice, long visit and while she was here, we did our share of cooking and eating. And cooking. And eating. And eating. The evening before she left, we were trying to figure out how to use a bunch of yellow cherry tomatoes Bets has picked from my garden. Show More Summary

Mexican Macaroni Salad

I’ve made this simple pasta salad for years and years, and have always loved the heck out of it. It’s zippy, flavorful, and fun, and is as delicious by itself as it is alongside grilled chicken, shrimp, or steaks. I made it recentlyShow More Summary

Mini Blueberry Galettes

So here’s the torture I’m faced with anytime I have to figure out what to call a recipe: Basically, what these are are mini flat blueberry pies. But when I typed “Mini Flat Blueberry Pies” I didn’t really think it rolled off the tongue. Show More Summary

Panzanella

I made Panzanella this week for a segment on a future Food Network episode, and I was reminded once again just how much I love and adore it. In a nutshell, Panzanella is tomato-bread salad. I imagine it was originally created as a way to use up old, staling bread, as that is Panzanella’s key component. Show More Summary

Lemon Basil Shrimp Risotto

I wanted to share another one of the recipes I made with some of the roughly five trillion pounds of leftover gigantic shrimp from our Fourth of July party. And I shouldn’t even be calling it leftover shrimp. That would imply that I actually used some of the shrimp at our Fourth of July party, and that some of the shrimp was left over. Show More Summary

Rosé Sangria

I got up the morning of the Fourth made sangria! And because these photos are from the actual batch I made for the party, and because the day of the party was nuts around here, I don’t have the number of detailed photos to show you that I normally do. Show More Summary

Coconut Curry Shrimp

As I lamented on Saturday, I completely forgot to throw a bunch of shrimp on the grill during our party on the Fourth, so wound up stuck with approximately nine million tons of the stuff. I wound up using it to my advantage, though, and making a handful of really delicious shrimp dishes. Show More Summary

Kale Pasta Salad

I made this fresh-and-lovely pasta salad to go with the Oven BBQ Chicken Thighs I made Sunday, and I’ve been enjoying it all the live-long week. Not to be clichéd or anything, but I’m a huge lover of kale…and it happens to be totally delicious tossed around with bowtie pasta and some simple, scrumptious flavors. Show More Summary
