Sweet Potato Casserole with Pecan Topping

I buy sweet potatoes by bushel.  Seriously, I have recently purchased my second nearly bushel box of sweet potatoes.  I think apples and oatmeal are the only other foods that we purchase in as large or larger quantities on a regular basis. I will tell you about the oatmeal sometime…it requires a separate post. 🙂 Most of […]

Roasted Summer Squash Halves

I purchased a bunch of very small yellow summer squash at a local farm.  I wanted to make them for dinner, but I did not have much time to cook.  Normally, I would have made them into cooked squash, but my husband needed to be able to eat them and I don’t like cooked squash […]

Steamed Baby Bok Choy with Oyster Sauce

My husband picked up a bag of baby bok choy when we were at an international “farmer’s” market the other day.  He told me he would really like some steamed bok choy with “some kind of sauce” like he ate for breakfast when he was in Wuhan, China several years ago.  While I am happy […]

Black Eyed Peas

Every year close to Christmas many grocery stores in the American South start selling “fresh” black eyed peas and increase their stock of collard greens in preparation for New Year’s Day. Black eyed peas and collard greens are said to represent coins and dollars, which when consumed on New Year’s Day will bring you fortune […]

Maple Glazed Roasted Sweet Potatoes

I was searching for something different than the everyday roasted/grilled sweet potato but not as “rich” as my mom’s glazed sweet potatoes or a sweet potato casserole when I thought of simply roasting sweet potato cubes in the oven like I roast other potatoes… with olive oil and salt. However, I prefer my sweet potatoes….well, […]

Warm German Potato Salad

My mom used to tell me that German potato salad was her favorite. As a young adult, she had boarded at the home of an older woman who had immigrated to the United States from Germany. I believe this is where she developed her affinity for the warm potato salad. My mom would rarely make […]

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 […]

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 […]

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 […]
