Caramelized Pineapple Grilled Cheese with Honeyed WalnutsWhat’s up with the pineapples on houses everywhere?, either Mike asked me or I asked him when we first moved to Virginia.

Because they literally are everywhere…we noticed them carved or engraved on mailboxes, porches, doorways, doorknobs, door knockers, and welcome mats, and that’s before you even get inside. Once inside a traditional Southern house, you may notice a pineapple design integrated right into the house (for example, carved into fireplace mantels), as well as throughout the décor (like in paintings and carpets).

Red Lentil Bolognese

Lentil Bolognese

This dish is a little nostalgic for me, but not in the way you’d expect. Other than being a darn tasty meal, it has no personal significance aside from the fact that it’s the last recipe I have that hasn’t been shared on my blog yet that I made and photographed while Mike and I were still living in Kuwait. (We left there last summer, so that shows you how long I’ve had this recipe in my queue!)...

Jicama, Apple, and Pomegranate Salad with Raspberry Dijon Vinaigrette

Jicama, Apple, and Pomegranate Salad with Raspberry-Dijon Vinaigrette

The other day we ordered sandwiches from a cute little local café. It bears mentioning that they served my turkey wrap with extra onion without me even having to ask…and it’s not like they knew me (as the onion-loving weirdo I am) because it was my first time there! I felt like I won the onion lotto or something. (It’s the little things, lol.)...

Harvest Kale Salad with Roasted Acorn Squash, Toasted Hazelnuts, and Apple-Cinnamon Vinaigrette {Let Them Eat Kale Cookbook Giveaway}

Harvest Kale Salad with Roasted Acorn Squash, Toasted Hazelnuts, and Apple-Cinnamon Dressing

From first bite, I’ve always been a kale-lover, but that might be because the first time I had it I was an adult. (My mom has a serious dislike of all leafy greens so she literally never made them – not once! – for my sister and I growing up. But don’t worry, we weren’t veggie-deprived! She was still of the strict belief that every meal should include a vegetable.)...
