If your days are anything like mine, you can barely count to 5 at the end of it all.  Also, at 7pm, this monster comes out of my stomach and says ‘GIMME ALL THE CARBS.’  Do you have that monster?  No? Just me? I’m always craving an easy, creamy pasta dish after Happy Hour.  Yes, […]

How are y’all liking Savory Fridays?  It’s not that we couldn’t subsist on dessert all day every day, but we shouldn’t, you know?  A little savory is good every now and then, right?  Plus, if you eat all of your dinner, I’ll let you eat both servings of dessert for two On Sundays, I make […]

Need a little more French in ya?  Last week, I shared my recipe for a small batch of mini Chocolate Eclairs.  This week, we’re making another classic French dish for two:  Endive Gratin with Ham and Gruyere.

I’ve always been a Rachael Ray fan.  […]

Dinner for Two: Perfect Collard Greens


A whole mess ‘a greens.  Well, technically not a whole mess, because I cook for two.  You probably already knew this much. I’ve never seen a collard green recipe that didn’t serve an army.  In fact, my old-timey Southern cookbooks recommend that you wash the whole heap of greens in the washing machine.  As in, […]

Easy Chicken ‘n Dumplings with Collard Greens Confetti


I never jumped on the kale bandwagon.  Not that I don’t eat it, persay, but I was never inspired to create recipes using it.  Most of the time, I wait for black Tuscan kale to appear at the farmer’s market, and I fry it with heaps of olive oil, sliced garlic, and dried chiles and […]
