Feeling Chicken Liver Pate

Tuesday, November 8th, 2011

Good Morning Darlings!

Ok, I have mooned over the table settings for Thanksgiving, so let’s discuss what’s going on the table after we’ve made it very pretty.

We are starting with starters today!

Just Chicken Salad

Monday, October 3rd, 2011

Good Morning Darlings!

Let me start by saying I consider myself to be a chicken salad connoisseur. I love pretty much any chicken salad. My dill chicken salad is thought to be a winner among my friends.

Do you love chicken salad, too? Come on in.

Picnic Time!

Thursday, August 4th, 2011

Good Morning Darlings!

Holly and I are now making our way back to Atlanta from Orlando. More twizzlers and diet cokes. And some more Bono and the Edge.

Maybe we should pack a picnic basket. Doesn’t that sound lovely?

What’s in your picnic basket?

Lighten Up

Wednesday, July 6th, 2011

Good Morning Darlings!

Wow, our July 4th weekend was chock full of eating. Specifically lots of hot dogs, burgers and grilled chicken. And lemon bars. There were chips, beer margaritas, cuba libres, pasta salad, dips, and more chips.

Did I mention beer margaritas and lemon bars? I ate a lot of those.

How can I remedy all those treats?

Fun Find Friday – Campo Viejo Winery

Friday, June 17th, 2011

Good Morning Darlings!

Campo Viejo recently contacted me to ask if I would like to participate in a wine tasting. Why, of course I would!

Last night they answered questions in real time while we sipped and ate. Melanie made a perfect roast chicken with roasted potatoes and scrumptious collard greens.

How did they pair?

Join our dinner party!

The Real Chow Baby

Monday, June 13th, 2011

Good Morning Darlings!

When Caren West calls (or emails), I listen. As one of Atlanta’s premiere PR mavericks, her clients are all incredibly fab.

Then she asked me to review The Real Chow Baby. What? Isn’t that like a fast food place? Really, Caren?


FFF- Movie Premiere!

Friday, April 1st, 2011

Good Morning Darlings!

Eric and I bought a Flip camera a few weeks ago with the hopes of making some fun videos.

Cooking videos, you naughty children!! lol

I would like to share our first offering. Chef Jeffrey Gardner of South City Kitchen and Food Network’s Chopped, came by to teach me how to cook in a tajine. The tajine was sent to me by our friends at Beka.

And now, without further adieu…

Cooking With Cheffrey

Tuesday, March 22nd, 2011

Good Morning Darlings!

I have decided to add another dimension to the blog and do some cooking videos. It was my extreme pleasure to welcome Chef Jeffrey Gardner from South City Kitchen to our home Sunday for some kitchen fun.

What are we up to?

FFF-Big Gay Supper Club

Friday, March 11th, 2011

Good Morning Darlings!

Oh how I love to meet new folks. And the other night at The Big Gay Supper Club, I did just that.

Invited by creator, Rande Head, and held at Rosebud, a restaurant I’ve been dying to try, it was a fun night out.
Lots of fun photos inside.

Allen’s Chicken Pot Pie

Tuesday, March 1st, 2011

Good Morning Darlings!

Remember on my birthday, my sweet friend Allen gifted me with a homemade chicken pot pie? Goodness gracious, it was delicious. And, as expected, gobbled up like hungry badgers by E and me.

It looks so delicious!
