This has been on my to-do list for two years now. With all of the chocoholics in my family I can’t believe it’s taken me so long to get the few ingredients together it takes to make my own chocolate. Now you might look at the list of ingredients and be tempted to file it [...]

Okay, listen up. This may be the most important culinary secret you ever hear. Many people believe the true test of a chef’s talent can be judged by their ability to make an omelet. Well, the equivalent test for a baker is the chocolate chip cookie and let’ s be honest, that is far more [...]
I have spent the past week engrossed in a new book and I just have to share it. I went to Local Burger a few weeks ago and saw a copy of Growing Roots: The New Generation of Sustainable Farmers, Cooks, and Food Activists sitting on the shelf and I was intrigued. Well if you [...]
I kid you not…the following recipes are probably the best recipes I have on this blog and you must make them immediately while there is still snow on the ground.

Have you ever made grilled pizza? If not, it’s a must. Especially with the July 4th holiday coming up. It’s so easy and so delicious and I guarantee that everyone will forget that they came to watch fireworks once they sink their teeth into chewy, cheesy pizza. We did this last week in a cooking class with the IMX=Pilates group [...]
Tomorrow morning I, along with seven others from Living Water Christian Church, am heading down to Americus, GA, specifically to Koinonia Farms. Koinonia Farms is a rural Christian community founded in 1942 and is the birthplace of Habitat for Humanity, as well as, many other peacemaking, social justice organizations. Rich in history (particularly around the Civil Rights era) and [...]
