collard greens

Tasty & Tender Collard Greens

Is that a weird recipe title? I felt a little strange using the word tender to describe a vegetable… but I didn’t know what else to call it! I didn’t want to just call it “Collard Greens” because that’s just boring and uninspired. But they aren’t southern style collard greens either, they’re kinda just tasty…

I’m so thankful to have connected with…

strawberry poppyseed dressing

Strawberry Poppyseed Dressing

Generally I dress my salads with a squeeze of lemon or some O&V, but every once in a while I want something a little fancier. And you know what this strawberry poppyseed is saying to me? It’s saying this. Um, where did summer go? Someone wanna fill me in on where these past 2 months…

Whole30 Week 1 Recap

Well I’m already 1 week into my Whole30 and happy to say that it’s flying by! Haven’t seen huge changes in how I feel/look, but I wasn’t expecting drastic improvements anyhow since eating this way isn’t exactly a shock to my body. The only change I’ve really experienced is actually a slight decrease in energy, but I…

Tarragon Eggs with Truffle Sea Salt

Well friends, today is the day I finally begin my first Whole30! If we’re gonna get real technical, it’s my second attempt, but my last attempt was thwarted by my unexpected college transfer situation (I only had a few days left in Scotland and wanted to eat one last scone and some fish & chips…)…

fried green tomatoes

Fried Green Tomatoes, ft. Bacon’s Heir Pork Dust

When you meet me, “Southern belle” is most likely not the first thing to come to mind. Atlanta is a very cosmopolitan city, so growing up I didn’t exactly get the full on “Southern experience” that most people associate with the South (read: Honey Boo Boo and Duck Dynasty should not inform your notions of the…

Kaelio-O-Kookies Review

So if you’re anything like me, you pretty regularly get a hunkering for a good ol’ cookie. But cookies don’t appear out of thin air. And sometimes you don’t have all the right ingredients. And god knows that during a Southern summer you don’t want to turn on your oven if you can help it….

Peaches & Cream

Okay so I have a slight (read: extreme) girl crush on Jessica from How Sweet It Is. Her recipes are to die for, her food photography is killer, and to top it all off, she’s hilarious and so endearing (to be clear, I’ve never actually spoken to Jessica, just admired from afar ) I happened…

Lemon Poppyseed Chicken Salad Endive Boats

Well friends, I’m finally back in action in the kitchen now that I’m settled in at home for the summer! I spent most of last week at the beach just relaxing (and CrossFitting at CrossFit St. Simons ), which was great and all, but I like routine. So I’m happy to be back in my…

Coconut Banana Bread

Honestly, I should be doing one of two things right now: studying, or packing. But this recipe just couldn’t wait! Mostly because as soon as my exams start I really can’t afford to spend much time cooking and blogging.. I have my first exam on Monday (geography), and my second/last on Wednesday (sustainable development). 3…
