Saucy Spaghetti and Meatballs

Saucy Spaghetti and Meatballs | Life, Love, and Good Food

Mama Mia, that’s a spicy meatball! Remember the old Alka-Seltzer commercial with the Italian gentleman eating spaghetti and meatballs? Well, you won’t need an antacid with these meatballs, but they are tasty and can be spiced up if you like by adding a little extra crushed red pepper flakes. I’ve been making these meatballs for several years […]

Peach and Sour Cream Pancakes

Peach and Sour Cream Pancakes | Life, Love, and Good Food

So it happened again. Pancakes for Saturday’s breakfast. This time, though, it was purely by accident. A quick survey of my pantry and fridge revealed a few slices of turkey bacon, some Golden Blossom Honey from my swag bag at the Food Blog Forum (smile), and one lonely peach. Luckily, I remembered tagging the recipe for Peach […]

Cheesy Greek Swirls

Cheesy Greek Swirls - Life, Love, and Good Food

I don’t know if you’ve noticed it by now or not, but I really like Greek flavors and have posted several recipes with Kalamata olives and Feta cheese on my blog in the past few months. In fact, this past week while on vacation, I enjoyed a Greek salad by the pool at our resort on more than one […]

Raspberry Oatmeal Pancakes

Raspberry-Oatmeal Pancakes - Life, Love, and Good Food

One of the best parts of our weekends is breakfast, actually sitting down together–at the same time–to eat more than a bowl of cereal. On workdays, John and I tag-team in the kitchen. John sets the timer on the coffee maker–thank goodness!–and when it beeps, he heads for the shower while I sip on my first cup and finish […]

Bacon Cheddar Jalapeno Poppers - Life, Love, and Good Food

Here in Knoxville, Tennessee fans are still pumped about the season’s BIG opening win against Utah State last Saturday — what a great way to start football season! Tomorrow when the Vols face Arkansas State in Neyland Stadium there is sure to be some epic tailgating going on all over campus, so I thought I’d share […]

Crunchy Oven-Fried Okra

Crunchy Oven-Fried Okra - Life, Love, and Good Food

What I think is one of the absolutely best summer foods? FRIED OKRA! Lucky for you, today I’m sharing a recipe I recently discovered at Sing for Your Supper Blog for a healthier, Crunchy Oven-Fried Okra. Thanks to my father-in-law and his garden, we feasted on this “farm-to-table” delicacy at supper Monday night. Just so you […]

My Escape to Foodtopia

Biltmore House - Food Blog Forum 2014

Last month I escaped to Foodtopia, a.k.a. Asheville, North Carolina, for my very first food blogger conference, the Food Blog Forum hosted by Jaden and Scott Hair from Steamy Kitchen and Todd Porter and Diane Cu of White on Rice Couple. (OK, so I was kicked out of the house by my husband who encouraged […]

Stuffed Red Peppers

Stuffed Red Peppers - Life, Love, and Good Food

It all started last weekend when I spied bushels and bushels of beautiful red bell peppers at the farmer’s market in Nashville and learned that they were selling for just 50 cents each! Normally, at the supermarket these babies are more like $2 a piece. Since these were such a bargain and since I really adore red […]

Roasted Tomatillo Salsa

Roasted Tomatillo Salsa - Life, Love, and Good Food

Saturday while visiting our daughters in Nashville we made a quick trip to the farmer’s market where I couldn’t resist buying tomatillos, or Mexican husk tomatoes, and the outcome was a very tasty Roasted Tomatillo Salsa! One thing I learned in the process — thanks to my daughter — is how to properly pronounce “tomatillo”. […]
