Slow Oven Roast

I was at the grocery store the other day with only half of a shopping list and was browsing to see what was on sale to figure out what else to buy. Normally, this means I end up buying too much or too little food (I have not yet mastered the portion skill). A sale…

Udon Noodle Soup

There is only one Asian supermarket near me (I miss you 99 Ranch Market!), so I go there for all of my specialty Asian food shopping. It’s been a little rainy and dreary lately (the last bit before it gets suuuper hot out), so some sort of soup sounded like a good idea before we…

Chocolate Chip Cookies

Chive Biscuits

These biscuits have no butter or cream (crazy, right!?), so they are much healthier than your typical southern biscuit. Believe me, I love that buttery biscuit goodness as much as you could possibly imagine (favorite: Loveless Cafe in Nashville), but I also know that my arteries would lose that battle. These were biscuits actually made for…
