Wing and a Prayer: Lemon Ginger Wings

Wing and a Prayer: Lemon Ginger Wings

It’s fall and that means it is tailgating time again! It’s not that I’m an enthusiastic football fan, but anytime food is involved, sports are better.

A Quick Dinner Between Stops: Tomato, Asparagus, & Pesto Salad with Chicken

It pays to plan ahead. I get mocked for it all the time, but I don’t care. Last weekend I spent the afternoon making pesto out of the abundance of basil that is all over the place this time of year.

Fall in Florida: Pumpkin Pie Chocolate Chunk Ice Cream

I’ve always been one to choose seasonal ingredients when I cook. For one, seasonal ingredients are usually cheaper – but most importantly, seasonal ingredients are picked at the peak of their freshness so they taste great. The one season I wait on all year is fall. There is something about squash, sweet potatoes, hearty greens, […]
