Pix Potluck: Fresh Fruit for Breakfast

Fruit is the ideal breakfast ingredient, especially during summer when you’re craving something light. Pair it up with a protein and you have a complete meal. Alex Lopez shared this pic of golden raspberries growing wild in her garden, “great with honey, yogurt and almonds” — yum! My morning staple is almost identical, except I […]

Ice Cream Truck Hits the ATL

Hey, Atlanta! The Cooking Channel ice cream truck is coming your way. We’ll be scooping Jake’s ice cream at the East Lake Farmers Market from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. tomorrow. Roger Mooking, the lovable, musical host of Everyday Exotic, will be chowing down and chilling out too.

Discovering: Fresh Peas

Drinking: Beat the Summer Heat with a Cool Cu Collins

Inspired by an extremely sticky evening and Drink Up, I started my weekend early with Darryl Robinson‘s gin cocktail, the Cu Collins. Gin is one of my favorite liquors because of its distinctive flavors—gins are re-distilled to infuse them with spices and flavors from juniper berries and other botanicals. Darryl’s riff on a Tom Collins […]

Just Desserts: Matt’s Cherry Galette

This may be the wrong time to make this proclamation but I am not Cherry Pie’s biggest cheerleader. All too often the gloopy, gloppy slices of America’s favorite leaves me wishing for something else.  Of course I want to celebrate summer like everyone else and take advantage of cherry’s all-too-short season and that’s when I […]
