Still Time for Summer Fun in the Kitchen

Here in Georgia, school is starting back in 3 short weeks. It is hard to believe school is so close, which makes it feel like the end of summer is at hand, which it clearly isn’t. There is still plenty of time for summer adventures, and of course I love those that involve the kitchen. These […]

Recipe Redux – Fig Preserves

This month’s Recipe Redux theme is Raising the Bar on Food in a Jar. I’m sure you may have noticed on Pinterest that meals in a mason jar are all the rage from Overnight Oats (which I should probably try but my bowl works just fine) to Salads. I guess if I didn’t work from […]
