The BEST Rhubarb Pie Recipe Ever!

The BEST Rhubarb Pie Recipe EVER!

I am not being overly dramatic when I say that this is THE best rhubarb pie recipe EVER! It’s a culmination of a few different recipes, deletes of some ingredients (spices – I love rhubarb pie very basic, it’s that good). I also have found THE PERFECT PIE CRUST (hint, you don’t even have to make it)! It tastes homemade, and I am beyond thrilled at this discovery! I had to make this pie twice to be sure I had the recipe just right 😉

A quick summer pasta #delightful!

Summer pasta: zucchini, fresh corn and Vidalia onion

Spring and summer in Charleston, SC have us making lighter fare. More fresh veggies, chicken on the grill atop mixed greens with a light vinaigrette to name a few. My family has always made sautéed veggies served over pasta but this time of year makes it extra special…

Spinach Pasta with Grilled Chicken and Fresh Corn – Spring is here!

Spring/Summer Pasta – Quick & Easy!

The temps are getting a bit warmer and the humidity is starting to creep up… What to do for dinner? Well, I don’t know about you, but one thing NOT to do is to turn on the oven. It seems to heat up our kitchen and ugh, makes me not want to eat. So I was trying to think of something quick to throw together with fresh ingredients…

Veggie Pasta with Walnuts, Olives and Feta!

MmmmMmmm Good!

This “recipe” is a family favorite. My mom has some rendition of this most days of the week. Pasta (all different pastas, brown rice pasta, regular pasta, multigrain pasta – each adds its own twist) – This is a pretty quick meal that you can change up to use what you’ve got. Don’t want to use pasta? Use Zoodles or the like, I think a little pasta will keep you full longer, just load up on the veggies.

A Breakfast That Will Keep You Moving!

Yes, even I overcook eggs… #damnit

Decisions, decisions. What to make for breakfast? What to make for lunch? What to make for dinner? Is anyone else becoming weary from thinking about it a little too often? I wasn’t sure what I wanted, I just knew it wasn’t scrambled eggs, or a sourdough English muffin. I wanted something that was going to make me FEEL GOOD, give me lots of ENERGY. I think this did the trick!

Quick and Easy Tacos – These are the best ever!

Tacos. Who doesn’t love a good taco. This is a quick meal to throw together, especially if you can run to Whole Foods and grab a container of freshly made guacamole, while you’re there you can also grab a container of fresh salsa (or this day, I just cut up a few campari tomatoes)…

MIXED BERRY COBBLER!!

Berry Cobbler (Raspberry, Blueberry, Blackberry)

Health experts tell us we should eat the colors of the rainbow for good health. These deep dark berries are beyond amazing all by themselves, but when you toss them in a casserole dish and top them with a little somethin’-somethin’ they become ✨magic✨! I try to keep portions small, this is a teeny bowl 😉

Yet another bowl of tasty goodness!

Yummy bowl of goodness!

Bowls are popular. They can be quick (oh so quick!), healthy (well, as healthy as you make them) and so darn good! It’s nice to take a day and prepare some veggies for the week, then just a quick heat up of the ingredients that sound good to you at the time and *BAM* Dinner. Is. Ready! #woohoo

WORLD FAMOUS CHRISTMAS COOKIES!

World Famous Christmas Cookies

These are actually called Christmas Butter Cookies – my family pulled the recipe out of a magazine back in the way back in the 1960’s and we’ve made them ever since. Five stars! Not only are they so tasty, but they are so much fun to make and especially to decorate. I can remember good times decorating one at a time (like tinsel on a tree, one piece at a time)… #whorememberstinsel?
