What We’re Eating

Oat-Cakes

What do we eat on a daily basis? Are you curious? I’m endlessly fascinated by what y’all eat every day.  I read quite a few blogs where people document their daily meals.  And I love them.  So, I thought I’d share an overview of what we eat. Breakfast:  Twice a month, I bake a double or triple [ Click to continue Reading! ]

Mashed Potato Truffles

Mashed-Potato-Truffles-4

No, that’s not a typo.  I really used mashed potatoes to make truffles instead of heavy cream. And believe me when I say:  no one can tell the difference.  I served them to many discriminating house guests over the past month. I watched closely for a raised eyebrow, a slight frown, anything! to tell me that you can [ Click to continue Reading! ]

I have wedding photos for you.

Our photographer saw a moment of perfect light shining through the window, so she grabbed us to snap this quick shot. I love the glow!

I made the executive decision to exclude my family from this public sharing. A wedding day is very personal. [ Click to continue Reading! ]

Oreo Brownies

I judge Mr. Dessert For Two for eating oreos. In a house with homemade desserts, it feels like a knife in the heart.  We don’t have them in the house frequently, but just often enough to hurt my feelings.  When I hear the rustling of the package in the pantry, I turn my judge-y eyes [ Click to continue Reading! ]

I have a prediction for you.  For the foreseeable future, all of my Dinner For Two recipes will be inspired by the meals we had on our honeymoon. On our honeymoon, we visited: New Orleans, Birmingham, Alabama, Savannah, Georgia, and Charleston, South Carolina.  The food of New Orleans sticks out in my mind the most.
