On My Plate

Mexican Chocolate Skillet Brownies

Queso Fundido Pizza

This pizza represents all the fiesta-fresh flavors of our favorite Mexican restaurant appetizer dip, and it is getting us in the spirit for Cinco de Mayo!

Kentucky Hot Brown Pizza

Thai Basil Julep

We are days away from the Kentucky Derby, and I’m putting a global twist on the classic signature drink. It’s refreshing and just a little bit different. In other words, it’s Comfort du Jour!

Cajun Shrimp & Garlicky Cheese Grits

There are as many ways to flavor shrimp and grits as there are southern cooks. This recipe is my personal favorite, and I’m offering my own secret tips for getting the grits to a perfectly creamy texture.

Tequila & Lime Pie

You’re gonna love this frosty, boozy, creamy, no-bake dessert, named in honor of the talented musicians who have saved our Friday nights during the COVID lockdown! Cheers, y’all!

“Big Kahuna” Pizza

The noise and commotion of our roof replacement didn’t stop our Friday night ritual of homemade pizza! This cheesesteak-style pie is our interpretation of a favorite Jersey Mike’s sub.

Smoked Maple Old Fashioned

“Friday Night” is one of the things that has helped us get through COVID lockdown, and this is what it tastes like at our house!
