Clyde’s On Main

We celebrated our anniversary this year a day early by having lunch at Clyde’s on Main in Chattanooga.  Although Clyde’s on Main has been open for a year, it was our first time there. It has a friendly, laid back atmosphere with a variety of seating options.  The decor is eclectic. It has cocktail tables made from […]

Pan Roasted Tomatoes on the Grill

It is amazing that something so simple like using a cast-iron skillet on your grill can change what you cook so much. This relatively inexpensive, naturally non-stick skillet can expand what you cook and how you cook on the grill. For example, some people prefer to cook hamburgers in a skillet on the grill to […]

Grandma’s Blackberry Pie and Cobbler

My mom and maternal grandmother made the best blackberry pies and cobblers. Although I was only nine when my grandmother died, I still remember how wonderful her blackberry cobbler tasted. Her cobbler was a double crust of pie dough in a 9 X 13-ish pan. I know that she made blackberry cobblers more often than […]

Mrs. B’s Reggae Cafe

I need to apologize to you. I broke the first rule of food blogging: Do not eat before you take pictures. Yes, I confess that once my dinner arrived at Mrs. B’s Reggae Cafe my brain disengaged upon the wonderful aroma hitting my nose and I just started eating. I even totally forgot about my […]

Tomato Mini Pies

While I like the full-size, traditional tomato pies, I really liked the idea of individual pies for when there are too many or too few people for a 9-inch deep dish pie. Inspired by the tomato pie at the Tomato Shed near Charleston, SC, I decided to use biscuit dough for the crust. I really […]

Cream Cheese Pie Crust

My mom used to make this cream cheese pie crust; she only made it for just one recipe…pecan teasers.  I never considered using it for anything else until talking about pie crust ideas for a tomato pie with a friend one day. I don’t know why I had not thought of it before. it was a […]

Tomato Pie

Before moving to Georgia, tomato pie meant a pie filled with green tomatoes that had a similar taste as apple pie (recipe to follow in a later post). I discovered a savory ripe tomato pie at a local restaurant our first summer here. However, the restaurant went out of business and I almost forgot about the […]

Fried Red Tomatoes

I had never heard of frying red tomatoes until I met my husband. While my mom had only fried green tomatoes, my mother-in-law only had fried red tomatoes. In fact, my husband was kind of taken aback the first time I picked green tomatoes from the garden and announced that I was going to fry […]

Pimento Cheese Spread

I have already shared the recipe for my dad’s pimento cheese. We called his (and most others) “pimento cheese salad” as it was very similar to ham salad. It is still my favorite, especially for sandwiches. However, I have also discovered some good “pimento cheese spreads” here in the South. To me, and probably only […]

Taco Mamacita

Chattanooga has a variety of restaurants (and a few stands) that sell tacos. Some of the places sell authentic Mexican and/or Tex-Mex tacos. Taco Mamacita’s is not one of them. It does not claim to be. Taco Mamacita’s tacos are more of a creative fusion than the standard offerings. They reflect a variety of flavors […]
