Crispy Duck Legs

When I shared my pictures and opinions of this recipe in the Kitchn's Cookbook Club Facebook group, my post started with, "Yall. Run and get some duck legs, so you can make the Crispy Duck Legs!" And now I'm telling anyone who reads this post the same! These are SO good. Honestly, I never thought... Continue Reading →

Corn Risotto

For the few people out there who read our blog with any regularity, you already know that I love risotto. I love carbs in general, and the adaptability of risotto specifically. We've experimented with taking risotto in a lot of different directions before (see our other risotto recipes), but this summer-y version is a new... Continue Reading →

Lemon Blueberry Muffins

Happy Labor Day Weekend! The unofficial end of summer has arrived. You'd be hard-pressed to know that here though, given that it's going to be sunny and in the upper 80s. We're spending our weekend at "The Land" as we call it - in rural Amherst County. While we still have the last remnants of... Continue Reading →

Lemon Blueberry Skillet Cake

Today marks my first full week of being home with the baby on maternity leave alone and Selim's first week being back at work. I'm learning that neither is easy. Selim has to get up early, after having frequently interrupted sleep all night, go to work all day, and be separated from this little baby... Continue Reading →

Apple Cinnamon Galette

It's well documented on this blog (and if you know me in real life...) that I don't like/am mildly terrified of baking. But every fall, like clockwork, I feel the need to bake something with apples in it. It's a personal rite of fall passage, along with my need to decorate with tiny gourds, take... Continue Reading →

Fig Chutney

Ok y'all. Remember that fig chutney that we made last weekend to go on top of some roast pork (Pork Tenderloin with Fig Chutney)? We've been talking about it all week. It was that good! So good that we felt the need to make it again and share it as a standalone recipe. The super... Continue Reading →

Pork Tenderloin with Fig Chutney

Fall is so close we can almost taste it! It's September, college football debuted yesterday, the NFL regular season starts this coming week, and Halloween candy and pumpkin-flavored everything¬†are starting to show up in stores. The bad news? It's still 90 degrees and sunny outside. The forecast is calling for 90+ degree days for the... Continue Reading →

Minty Watermelon, Cucumber & Feta Salad

I, like most other people I know, love a juicy summer watermelon. It is just so refreshing and delicious! I remember that my grandfather always used to (and probably still does) put salt on his watermelon, which I thought was absolutely crazy. I thought that salt would ruin the sweet taste. Through the years, I've... Continue Reading →

Peach & Burrata Salad

As promised, here's the recipe for the gorgeous salad hidden in the corner of one of our pictures from Saturday night's Patatas Bravas with¬†Super Garlic Aioli! Ally's cousin Emily is responsible for this dish, and we're hoping this is the first of many of her creations we'll share on here (you should see some of... Continue Reading →

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...
