Create Dinner No. 5: Sobremesa

The theme for dinner no. 5 in our “create dinner” series was “sobremesa” – a Spanish word that doesn’t translate directly to English but describes a Latin tradition of  conversation and relaxation that happens across the table after a delicious meal.

Savannah, GA 2017

Savannah is a city with a small town, romantic feel, rich in history and architecture. Margaret Mitchell referred to it in Gone with the Wind as “that gently mannered city by the sea”.

Valentine's Day

Instead of going out to an overbooked restaurant and sitting jammed at communal tables overhearing other people’s conversations, and paying for overpriced holiday tasting menus, try staying at home with your loved one and making dinner together.

'Tis the Season & Link Love 12.23.16

I have been singing (well, calling it "singing" may be cause a for debate!) Christmas music at the top of my lungs since the day after Thanksgiving but things have been moving so fast it hasn’t quite felt like the holidays yet.

Tuscaloosa, AL 2016

My brother goes to school at the University of Alabama in Tuscaloosa, which is located about an hour West of Birmingham. It’s what you would call a real college town.

Bookworm Babes Book Club

Telling people that I am in a book club makes me feel like more of an adult. It is as if saying the phrase “we read that in book club” would make people turn around and think to themselves, “wow if she’s in a book club where she can commit to reading a book every month she must really have her shit together.”

Nashville 2016

Like any good trip of mine, this one was predominately centered around food. When I’m traveling, I don’t want to eat things I can find at home. I want to try local cuisines and dishes which in Nashville means, hot chicken, BBQ and biscuits. Check out some of my favorites.

How to Put Together A Great Cheese & Charcuterie Board

Cheese boards are an art form that involves much more than throwing some cheeses and crackers on a plate and serving it to guests. While any sane person will still love whatever cheese and crackers you serve, I’m going to help you impress your guests. Trying to narrow down my favorite cheeses is like trying to tell you my all-time favorite television show; there are just so many good choices.  With television, sometimes I’m in the mood for a comedy, other times a crime show or drama. The same goes for cheeses; sometimes I need some firm Parmesan and sometimes I need some super creamy Brie.
