I would hate for any of you to think that just because my life is in total upheaval and the blog is quiet, that I am not still eating everything I can get my hands on. I am still doing that. I am even still (most of the time) remembering to take photos.

Colcannon is supposed to be eaten on Halloween, and there should be coins and charms hidden in it (the lack of prizes was, I feel, more the restaurant’s fault than ours).

I’ve had both savory and sweet bread puddings, and though some people are put off by the chewy (and in cases where it’s done wrong, soggy) texture of the dish, I am not going to let a little thing like that stand between me, sugar, bourbon, and eggs.

I went to Louisiana for a weekend to visit my family (and spend time with my awesome husband), and I ate ALL THE SOUTHERN FOODS! A lot of eating went on, and I have so much to show you!

Boiled Crawfish: it’s worth a trip for Louisiana just for this ritual, in my humble opinion. And if 67 of your closest relations are also there, well then, that’s what we call lagniappe — extra goodness on top.

People who know me even a little know how strongly I feel about food and lists. So it should surprise exactly none of you to find out I’ve been coveting Mimi Sheraton’s 1,000 Foods To Eat Before You Die: A Food Lover’s Life List since it was published in 2014. I am going to make a bold claim: I think I can get this done in less than a lifetime.

Recipe :: Pumpkin Hummus

Sep 29, 2013 by

So fall is in the air, and pumpkin-flavored everything abounds! By and large, the pumpkin-flavored dishes you’ll find around at this, best, time of year are dessert-ful in nature. But I started thinking last weekend that, since pumpkin is actually a squash, there must be recipes out there for savory pumpkin dishes. Pumpkin hummus seemed to me like a thing that had to exist, and that I could potentially improve upon.

Recipe :: Cashew-Date-Coconut ...

Aug 28, 2013 by

I hesitate to really call it a recipe, since it involves like 3 steps and no real baking/cooking/frying/sautéing, just some food processor magic and a little kneading. But what results is so delicious, so sweet, and so healthful that I had to share. The possibilities of these things are endless, and the benefits are many: they contain raw, unprocessed food; all the sweetness comes from natural sugars; they’re about 100 calories each and contain lots of protein; and they’re both filling and sweet-tooth satisfying.

Mar 1, 2013 by

With St. Patrick’s Day looming large on the calendar, I’ve been experimenting with Bailey’s Irish Creme and chocolate in various combinations. I suppose you could stop at just the brownie layer if you’re lazy or short on time, but the two glazes on top are what make this dessert spectacular. Enjoy them in good health! Sláinte!

Recipe :: Lemon Shortbread

Nov 4, 2012 by

I have always been somewhat fearful of shortbread, the classic Scottish treat. Not eating it (to which I have absolutely no aversion at all), but making it has always seemed daunting. Mine turned out FANTASTICALLY, and I still can’t tell you at what point a person has “overworked” the dough. Don’t let the wording overwork your nerves.
