  • Spiced Poached Pears With Mascarpone Cream & Vanilla Rice Pudding.

    It’s been a long time coming and took a little bit of juggling and re-adjusting positions and schedules but my family is here. My parents, my brother, his wife and my two nieces arrived late Thursday night after a long day of traveling. It’s been nothing but laughter and catching up since then. And it […]

  • Triple Berry Crisp

    It’s been a couple of fast paced weeks but I would not change a thing. Work is fairly busy as everyone is preparing to take some time off for the holidays. I am still getting acclimated to all the parameters of the job. Addressing everyone’s expectations can be quite tricky at times but at the […]

The restaurant is Lana. Located a tad off the tourist path at the corner of Cannon and Rutledge in Charleston, […]

Bill and the pups came to Birmingham for Thanksgiving and the older pup, Tippy is staying with me while Bill and Bailey (The Inseparables) have gone back to Charleston. While we were busy […]

  • Parsnip Cake & A Cookbook Giveaway

    In the 156 updates about the new house, here is the latest. A new dining room and chairs were delivered last Saturday turning the new pad into a real home. At least, that’s how it feels to me. Seeing this new space where new and visiting friends would now gather and break bread with us […]

  • Shrimp and Grits & Good Time Working With Friends

    Version with a parsley garnish. The workshops are over and I find myself immersed into work mode as I unpack my stuff here in Birmingham. I drove home today with ample time to reminisce and reflect along the stretches of forestry and marsh land before me. It was really the first time that I had […]
