Cheesy Chicken Vegetable Cobbler

When autumn rolls around with its shorter days and chilly evenings, I always start to feel a little nostalgic.

What that really means is that I start to miss the cold-weather comfort foods that I haven’t had in what feels like forever because the weather has been too warm to really enjoy them. (more…)

Vegetable Beef Pie with Cheesy Potato Topping {And a Castello® Moments Round-Up}

Monday, August 5th, 2013

Thank you to Castello® Moments for sponsoring this post. I am happy for the opportunity to share brands that I believe in with my readers, and I hope you enjoy my recipe for Vegetable Beef Pie with Cheesy Potato Topping with Weissbier.


It’s been a strange summer for a million different reasons.

I won’t bore you with the details (yet), but let’s start with the weather.

First off, it’s felt like autumn for the past week or so now (especially in the unseasonably chilly evenings), and there were even brisk days in July that felt more like late rather than early summer. Not that I’m complaining; I’m a cold-weather girl all the way, but it is curious to say the least.

And instead of leaving me craving a fresh summer salad for supper, this is the sort of weather that leaves me wanting something warming…a dish like Vegetable Beef Pie with Cheesy Potato Topping fits the bill perfectly. (more…)

Cincinnati Chili

Saturday, February 23rd, 2013


Let’s talk Cincinnati for a minute.

I had the pleasure of briefly visiting there once. One of my best friends from law school was from Cincinnati, and as tends to be the case when you’re living about 1,000 miles from home for the first time in your life, she talked about Cincy in general and chili in particular. A lot. (I definitely don’t blame her…I remember talking my fair share about Buffalo wings!)

We were in law school in Florida, and when she found out there was a Skyline Chili location what she considered to be “nearby”, she drove us there to experience the magic that is Cincinnati chili, even though “nearby” meant a one-hour drive each way. She was a fanatic like that, and for good reason. We made the drive, ate our chili, and full and happy, she said with a sigh, It’s even better in Cincinnati. And because I know how “Buffalo” wings taste outside of Buffalo, I didn’t doubt her for a moment. A while after that, I visited her in Cincinnati and got to experience for myself what she had been talking about. (more…)

Chili, with a Spanish Flair

Wednesday, February 15th, 2012

How many times a year do you make chili?  I make it about twice a year, once in the autumn and once in the winter, but always a different recipe.  (I have a common food blogger problem…I tend to think of meals that I make and enjoy but don’t photograph for the blog as wasted opportunities…which means I rarely get to enjoy a good meal – rather, the same good meal – twice.)
