As a child, we were at some form of a hybrid bbq/karaoke joint with my younger cousins. We wanted to sing great balls of fire, the owner had another idea. We didn't get served until we sang twinkle, twinkle little star. Singing good our supper finally paid off in tears from my cousin, Grace, and bbq ribs for everyone else.
Heading up to NJ where I might be taking over the kitchen for the day: Brined Turkey, Honey Baked Ham, mashed potatoes, garlic green beans, sweet potato casserole, homemade cranberry sauce, stuffing with apples and pie - pecan, pumpkin, and apple.
Sweet N Sinful Bakery in Avondale Estates, GA. They have the most amazing brownies!
Circles in South Tampa, FL. One of my favorite places to go for lunch or dinner - the roasted garlic dressing is amazing and the owner is so friendly.
My kitchen aid mixer! Oh how I love that thing!
chocolate souffle cake
The first time I made brown sugar candied bacon for my husband.
My favorite chocolate dessert is a hot chocolate souffle.
My favorite thanksgiving story happened last year. My uncle haphazardly ran the kitchen that morning and ended up burning the stuffing and dipping his fingers into my aunt's pumpkin pie for a taste. The stuffing was delicious and the pie was just as good. It made for a great laugh and great story.
The pecan pie a la mode at The Camellia Grill in New Orleans. They put the pie face down on the flat top with butter to warm it up and then top it with fresh vanilla ice cream.
I was introduced to apple brandy this spring. My favorite is from Foggy Ridge Ciders in Virginia. Nothing like seeing where what you drink is made!
GA - Fried Chicken, Biscuits, Pralines in Savannah,Onion Rings at The Varsity, Pecans and Peanuts too
Success - Sour Creme Coffee Cake. Barely survives a day!
Latest failure - My go to doubletree cookie recipe betrayed me with super flat and burnt cookies with raw centers.
If you get the chance to try their mac and cheese, it is absolutely amazing! Fortunately they ship too, so my mac and cheese needs can be fulfilled whenever needed.
Steak, balsamic roasted onions, butter lettuce, roasted garlic and Gorgonzola spread on french or ciabatta
My grandmother's challah recipe.
A milk chocolate truffle from a little chocolate shop in Brussels. I can't remember the name, but we went through a pound in a day and had to go back the following day because we ate them all.
My worst baking disaster involved the first time that I used silicone pans. I ended up with cake crumbs mixed with uncooked batter.
I loved brownies a la mode as a kid... I still do, but it's not my go to dessert anymore
Balsamic Roasted Onions... yum!
Doubletree chocolate chip cookies
My biggest baking disaster was a green cake. My friend's birthday is on St. Patrick's Day so I thought it would be fun to make a green cake for him. The cake was great but the color was a little unappetizing. Some things just aren't better with a hint of green.
