Fried Green Tomato BLT (a.k.a. Summer Love)

Sadly for me, there’s still no spare time in my life to write.  Happily for me, there’s still time in my life to cook.  Yay! Sometime last week, we tried a new-to-us recipe for Fried Green Tomato BLT sandwiches.  Or actually, Scott tried the recipe while I was at work.  And it was a hit. …

Braised Beef (or Venison) + Mushrooms + Wine + Veggies

All of those pluses add up to deliciousness, in case you were wondering about that.  It’s a very scientific formula. No really. This was one of my favorite new recipes that we’ve tried lately.  Could it be because Scott made it for me?  Possibly.  Could it be because it made our freshly gained venision taste…

Leftover Turkey Magic (also known as Thanksgiving Fried Rice)

Late Night Asian Turkey Cabbage Cups

When work finally came to a close, I found my way home for a quick yoga session and…

Avocado Green: Soup Edition

We happen to have an avocado green bathtub, but that’s not what’s going on here.  In the name of eating more greens, I tried a new recipe last night.  I just didn’t know quite how green it would be.  Check it out:  It’s Avocado-Corn Chowder with Grilled Chicken from Cooking Light.  This is how the official…
