German Apple Pancake

German Apple Pancake

Since we have moved back to Arkansas, we don’t seem to have as much time for breakfast. The boys are running off to school during the week and to activities on the weekends. There is just so much happening! But Taido still tries to fix a fun breakfast on Sunday mornings while he is home …

GIngerbread Men, Alison Chino

Gingerbread Men

I know you can make gingerbread at any time of the year, but for some reason I only make them at Christmas. Christmas and Gingerbread Men just go together, like Easter + Bunnies. Ice Cream + Summer.

Chocolate Salami, Salame, Italian Dessert Recipe

Chocolate Salami

So I’ve been attending this international gathering of women this fall and one week we all brought food from our countries to share. Of course Italy totally wins at All Things Food.

Seafood Coconut Curry

Seafood Coconut Curry

The first time I ever entered an ethnic foods store was with my mother-in-law. We pulled up to a small shop in a strip mall I had been to several times, but I’d never before noticed the unassuming “Indian Grocer” placard among the other larger shop signs. Accosted by strange smells upon entering, I followed my mother-in-law …

Blackberries, Scotland, Blackberry Cobbler

Blackberry Cobbler

Blackberries are growing everywhere in Aberdeen right now, and it’s slowing my walks way down that I have trouble walking past blackberry bushes without stopping.

Camino Recipe: Tarta de Santiago

In every bakery window in Santiago you can spot a Tarta de Santiago, a light almond cake that has the cross of St James dusted on top with icing sugar. You can buy boxes of these cakes to take home to your family and friends (I did!) but they tasted better right on the street …

Summer Harvest Menu, Summer Squash, Purple Hull Peas, Tomato, Okra, Cornbread

Summer Harvest Menu

We are having a absolutely FAB summer, but I have to say, I am still missing hot, hot summer in Arkansas. I know that sounds crazy, but it just does not quite feel like summer without daily trips to the pool and constantly dripping of sweat. Other things I miss include Arkansas tomatoes, purple hull …

Mexican Omelette

I mentioned a while back how much we are loving Jamie Oliver’s cookbooks since we moved to the UK. Save with Jamie is my current obsession, as we are eating mostly vegetarian these days and are always trying to save money on groceries. This is really a breakfast meal, but we have been serving it …

Valentines Treats, Cookies

Valentine Treats

This photo is from last year on Valentine’s Day. Which feels like a lifetime ago. It was before we knew we were moving. Before we left our life in Arkansas. Before Tiny Oven. And slightly mildewed jeans + towels. Friends, let me just admit that this is the year I turn into the person who …

Making Whole Wheat Bread, Steps

Easy Whole Wheat Homemade Bread

I am happy to say that I think I might finally be making friends with Tiny Oven. I will never love him the same way as I did Dream Oven back in Arkansas, but we are working out our differences. I’m hoping you won’t think me completely crazy when I tell you that I often …

Blackberry Pie, Mama's House, Thanksgiving

Blackberry Pie

I am trying to manufacture a little Thanksgiving spirit over here in Scotland, even without canned pumpkin or grocery store freezer cases full of turkeys.

Kale, Leeks, Mushrooms, Zucchini, Courgettes, French Peasant Soup

French Peasant Soup

I kind of pride myself on being able to make a peasant soup out of the groceries that are left at the end of the week. Just a few days ago I turned some cans of beans into dinner, and no one went hungry. This French Peasant Soup recipe is perhaps my favorite version of …

Summer Harvest, Okra Recipe, Oven Roasted Cornmeal Encrusted Okra

Oven Roasted, Cornmeal Encrusted Okra

I am missing getting vegetables from my sweet friends, Sandy and Michael. We were roasting okra by the bushel back home and we always ate every bite.  It is a family favorite for sure. My mom tosses okra in olive oil and cornmeal before baking it, which mimics southern fried okra, but is much healthier!  …
