Tasty Trout

I love all kinds of seafood and particularly love trying mainly varieties of fish. As of late, I’ve been on a huge trout kick. Trout is a very clean fish with low levels of mercury and other contaminants. It’s mild flavor, high protein content, good fats and other essential nutrients and vitamins such as potassium,…

Rosemary Turkey Hash

With this snap of cold weather, I wanted a hearty and comforting dish and decided on rosemary turkey hash. I put a twist on one of my favorite potato hash dishes for a quick and easy meal to ward off the cold, while still giving balance. As a southern gal, I love all types of…

Fermented Joy

I hinted at my latest fermentation project in the crispy chicken post, and will dive a little deeper. I’ve written in the past about my projects with kombucha and kimchi and the latest addition to the fermented family is sauerkraut.  Why ferment? Making your own fermented goods is a great way to support your immune…

Crispy Air Fried Chicken

Every now and then, I get in the mood for some good, crispy fried chicken. I am a firm believer in a weekly cheat day, though with the way I make these wings, I have no guilt and thoroughly enjoy them a variety of accompaniments. I’ve been on a craze for the Trader Joe’s plantain…

To Press or Pour?

If you start your day with a strong cup of joe for more than just the jolt of caffeine, you also care about the flavor that really drives the coffee experience. While I will admit that a Keurig adds simplicity to getting that morning cup of joe quickly, there’s something to be said for the…

Turkey Chili

Since it’s officially cold outside, its the season for soups, stews and chilis. This turkey chili packs a punch and is perfect to warm up from a cold day. It’s also a perfect dish to restock your supply of homemade freezer meals. I am a big fan of batch cooking, meaning you freeze at least…
