Meringues With Chocolate Mousse

Individual meringues filled with chocolate mousse

This recipe is based off of a pie my mom makes. It was my sister’s favorite dessert to have on any special occasion. In a pie format, cutting this into slices without the meringue breaking into a million pieces can be problematic. I made these last night to take to a dinner party, and pretty

Creamy Cheddar Grits

Growing up in Charleston, grits were a staple of my childhood. For over 20 years of my life, I don’t think I had bad grits. After college, I moved north. New York and Philadelphia had amazing food, of course, but it was almost impossible to find good Southern food or soul food. It was a

Lemon Cookies With Vanilla Glaze

Lemon cookies

When I first started to make these lemon cookies the other day, I used a base that was similar to how I make sugar cookies. I wanted the dough to be rolled out like sugar cookies, but the dough didn’t shape up to make that happen. The lemon juice and the baking soda gives these

Pasta with Easy Homemade Creamy Tomato Sauce

Pasta with Easy Homemade Creamy Tomato Sauce

I needed something quick and easy to make for dinner the other night. I’d just been to Lidl, and I got a pack of tricolor fusilli pugliesi, which I really wanted to use. This recipe would be good with pretty much any type of pasta, though. This is definitely coming to work with me for

Fish & Shrimp Chowder

I made this for dinner last night, and it was so good, but I pulled some out of the fridge today to take a photo and decided it’s even better the second day. I’m looking forward to having this again for lunch today and tomorrow. I used red drum as the fish in this recipe.

I tried to make a tortellini soup in the slow cooker a few years ago after seeing it on one of those Facebook videos. The recipe called for cream cheese, which never really did anything but become a chunky mess. It was definitely a fail. I’ve wanted to make my own version (that would actually

I wanted to bake something to take to work this week, but I also had a long day and wanted to do something easy. This cake uses a boxed spice cake mix as the base. I baked this in a loaf pan for easy transportation to work, since my cake carrier is at a friend’s

Gingerbread Ice Cream

Gingerbread Ice Cream

I love gingerbread. Gingerbread cookies, gingerbread lattes, gingerbread everything – love it! I’ve been meaning to try to make gingerbread ice cream since around Christmas, but I kept putting it off and forgetting and then I decided to paint my kitchen cabinets and do a lot of other major things around the house. So finally this

Chicken Tortilla Soup

I’ve always been a huge fan of chicken tortilla soup. This recipe is really similar to the one I made before, but I like the new and improved version a lot better! I didn’t have to troubleshoot this recipe at all for being too spicy or salty. This recipe makes a ton (6.75 quart dutch

Lobster Ravioli

Lobster Ravioli

Usually I’m the person who wants to get in and out of the grocery story as quickly as possible. I know what I want, I know where it is, and that’s that. Yesterday was one of those days when I felt like exploring everything, so naturally I ended up with a live lobster in my
