My kids call biscuits and gravy their favorite struggle meal. For me, it’s my favorite I-don’t-have-enough-energy-to-deal-with-anything-meal. All of my teenagers now know how to make the gravy themselves, and I keep a few cans of biscuit dough in the fridge for the nights of no energy or time.… Keep reading...

The best part of this dressing, aside from it being fabulously tasty is, it’s gluten free! I have several friends who are either celiac or have friends who are. I love when I have a great recipe I can pass along, especially for a holiday meal.… Keep reading...
This is a very basic, dense, slightly sweet cornbread recipe. It is not to be confused with cornbread cake which, as one may imagine, is even sweeter and more cake like. Corncakes usually contain flour to lighten the batter.… Keep reading...
The new year will be here before long, and in the Lowcountry, that means it’s time to cook up some greens. Collards are a traditional New Year’s dish eaten to bring wealth in the coming year.

Note from Heather: When I updated the images on this recipe, I added 3 green onions, chopped, used fresh ground black pepper, and used *gasp* bottled lemon juice. Don’t tell Bobbie 😉

Dressing is and always has been my favorite part of Thanksgiving Dinner. I love it day of and straight out of the fridge over the next few days.
It turns out Ray has missed dressing the last few years.… Keep reading...
Whenever birthday season rolls around, we like to give the birthday child a few treats of their own choosing, within reason. I do believe my middle child is a budding foodie. The days leading up to his birthday he talked about how he wanted to have apple pancakes for breakfast, something we have never made or even offered.… Keep reading...
We’ve been working hard to reduce our meals out. We’ve come a long way since we first started dating and I’m thrilled about that. However, we both sometimes miss items found at certain *cough* Chipotle *cough* restaurants.

Ray, who is unfortunately allergic to wheat, mentioned how his grandmother used to make zucchini bread and how much he loved it and I remember loving when my mother made zucchini bread one summer when our garden went nuts.… Keep reading...
