Race Day Bananas

Tomorrow morning I am running my first ever race, the Folly Beach “Save the Lighthouse” half marathon.  Here is a picture of the lighthouse- who wouldn’t want to save that!  I am getting fairly nervous as it has been snowing and icing since Tuesday which means that I have not gone for a run since […]

Snow Day Pretzels

It is supposed to snow in Charleston tomorrow.  People are initiating emergency guidelines.  We are preparing for total shut down for the forecasted one inch of snow.  I haven’t heard anything yet about potential school closings, but I am getting prepared to have a rambunctious 10 year old home from school either tomorrow or Wednesday.  […]

Conch Fritters

I really hate clutter- so much so that I throw things away by mistake and then rage around the house looking for them later but that is neither here nor there.  So this past Christmas, instead of giving Walker some toy or thing that will just clutter up his room,  we very selflessly gave him […]

In the last two days, trailers for new television shows about South Carolina have been aired.  Please please please do not believe that South Carolina is anything like what is depicted in these shows.  The first one I saw (and I have been hearing about this upcoming show for a while) is called Southern Charm […]

Butterfinger Bark

I think I have said this before, and it should really come as no surprise since I am in love with baking and desserts, but I have a ridiculous sweet tooth.  This attribute fortunately did not get passed down to my son Walker.  He likes candy, but he could really go either way on it.  […]

Rolo Pretzels Bites

I hope everyone had a wonderful holiday!  I feel like I have been eating non stop this holiday season, and it has been wonderful.  We spent Saturday night with a bunch of friends and one of the many yummy nibbles served were Rolo pretzel bites.  Such a simple yet awesome snack- salty, sweet, crunchy, chewy- […]

Now Bring Us Some Figgy Pudding

I have always wondered about figgy pudding- what is it?  I do very much like the line in the Christmas carol about it, demanding figgy pudding is just kind of funny to me.  So, of course, I googled it, and while I don’t think it will make it into the holiday repertoire of traditions, it […]

A Lesson in Chocolate

This past Saturday, we were invited to a friend’s house for a chocolate making lesson which might be the best kind of lesson ever.   Chefs Mark Gray and David Vagasky have started Cacao’s Artisan Chocolate in Charleston (www.cacaoscharleston.com), and their chocolate is really really amazing.  They sell their chocolates in Southern Season in both Charleston […]

Peppermint Kiss Cookies

My sister-in-law is an excellent baker.  She makes the best chocolate chip cookies, brownies, etc, and she is incredibly generous with her baking.  I am not sure where she finds the time as she is also a lawyer.  We went to an oyster roast this past weekend with her and my brother, and she brought […]
