Chunky Pineapple Tomatillo Salsa

During our years living in Columbia, we loved going to the Soda City Market on Main Street in downtown Columbia. Now that we live in Richmond, we've turned to the South of the James market for our Saturday morning perusing. For better or for worse, Soda City Market isn't exactly a farmers market in our...

Midnight Quick Pickles

Every time we visit my cousin and her husband, we always come home with more than when we arrived. They live in a more rural county, have a HUGE backyard garden, and freezers full of hunting spoils. We were there this past weekend to visit with them and their brand new baby 😍😍😍 We cooked dinner... Continue Reading →

It all started one time when we had a left-over half bottle of wine and... Continue Reading →

I think most of my peers either a) ate so many of these sandwiches in childhood that they refuse to even glance at them... Continue Reading →

Baked Beef Empanadas

Just a few weeks ago, we shared our Farewell Columbia homage to our food faves from our home for the past three-ish years. One of Ally's favorite things to do in Columbia was to walk up and down the market, pretending like she might branch out, but then settle back on her favorite empanadas for... Continue Reading →

Summer Turkey Kofte

We've chatted about köfte here before (see our post for Sultan Selim Kofte). Usually they are made from lamb and/or beef, but really köfte can be anything. The origin of the word is from the classic Persian, meaning "to pound" or "to grind." This obviously describes the ground meat, but really works for many other ingredients. We're...
