You may recognize this photo from my photography challenge project. In fact, this recipe came about because I simply wanted to photograph some figs.

Pumpkin Butter with Cinnamon Cranberry Biscuits

October 4, 2011

The smell of fall spices brings childhood memories rushing back into my mind. Even though I grew up in a Taiwanese family, I also grew up in a fairly rural part of Southwest Virginia, tucked away in the Appalachian Mountains. A close family friend, who was like a grandmother to me, would always cook a […]

Asian Caprese Salad | Farmers Market Season

July 22, 2011

Historic Norcross is one of my favorite local places to go. In fact, before the city passed that ban on dogs in parks, I was eyeing Norcross as a place where we would eventually move to. Oh well. But, I still do love the area. We made a stop at the Whistle Stop Farmers Market […]

I have been wanting to make this focaccia recipe for a while now. Ever since that incredible meal at Antico Pizza, when I was served rosemary focaccia that was so delicious, my eye rolled into the back of my head. And Paul, well he loves all things bread, as most men do, most men that […]
