Cod with Leeks & Tomatoes

cod with leeks and tomatoes

Sometimes you just need to reference a good cookbook.  It’s so easy to search the internet for recipes that I forget about the library of cookbooks that I have collected over the years.  These books are full of amazing recipes and beautiful pictures, which is what initially inspired me to take photos of my own food and […]

Ceviche

The first time I ever at ceviche was in Puerto Rico.  It just looked it would be the most refreshing dish to order while at the beach.  It was so delicious that I literally ordered it at every restaurant we went to and each time was never disappointed.  When we got back in town, it […]

Lemon Basil Chicken Salad

It is no secret that I am a giant lover of tomatoes and what better goes with tomatoes than basil, except of course when you add in the Southern staple chicken salad.  I was recently eating lunch at Newk’s and they had samples of pesto chicken salad and I just kept thinking how delicious that would […]

I guess you could call us the Julia Green Hills Gals.  I have really grown to love this little group that has been getting together for a little “Wine-D” down time on Fridays once a month.  Each month we get together at one of our houses, bring some snacks, a little wine, let the kids […]

Homemade Chili Seasoning

Homemade chili seasoning

I’m not sure if there is a perfect chili recipe out there.  I  kind of think that chili might be one of the most subjective dishes leaving it up to each person’s taste buds to determine your favorite chili.  I do know that mine has gone over pretty darn well over the years and I tend […]

Chicken & Mushroom Wild Rice Pilaf

I love a dish that sort of just comes together and turns out pretty good.  This past Mother’s Day we took a day trip to Arrington Vineyards to meet up with my sister and her family and quite a few of our friends.  The great thing about Arrington is that it is a place that […]
