Hoppin’ John

Hoppin’ John

I had this dish at a friend’s house in Upstate New York this past Christmas, and found out it was a southern dish. Ironically, since we rarely go out to meals here in Georgia, I had never heard of Hoppin’ John until I went back […]

Garlic Eggplant Stir Fry

Garlic Eggplant Stir Fry

  I haven’t been back to the blog for a few months now, I’ve had a few reasons. One of them was, if I stepped one foot into the kitchen I’d have a toddler clinging desperately on my leg, not letting go unless I stopped […]

Roasted Turkey Breast
