Last week, Mac wasn’t feeling well and came home sick from work. This was literally the third time I have seen him sick. He was hungry but wasn’t interested in eating a lot, so I whipped up a batch of chicken cous cous soup. I had both broth and cous cous from Ibotta rebates, so […]
These cheese fries are easy to make and amazing. Another successful Pinterest find. They’re perfect for watching football or as a party-sized appetizer. Gather: 1 package of frozen fries or tater tots 2 cups of shredded Cheddar cheese 6 sliced of cooked bacon, diced 1/2 cup of sour cream 1/4 cup of milk 2 tbsp. […]
Another Virginia Tech recipe here. I was curious why my personal recipe tasted different from West End’s until I found the recipe in A Taste of Virginia Tech. My recipe uses breadcrumbs, West End’s does not. Either way is good, but I like the bread-less version better. Gather: 4 medium tomatoes 2 tbsp. of olive […]
Michie Tavern is a historic tavern in Charlottesville, Virginia. We stopped for lunch one day many years ago when I was visiting colleges (yes, this die-hard Hokie visited that other school in Virginia). My mom loved their food so much, she bought their cookbook. These green beans are quite tasty and are a different twist […]
This dip was inspired by Mac who was wandering in the kitchen looking for food. And what’s not to like? We have cheese, bacon, ranch dressing. All good in this hood.
This is my preferred pasta salad recipe. I made it last week for our FRG potluck, and it was one of three sides (for like 150 people). The recipe is really easy to double or triple: it’s basically 2 parts pasta to 1 part everything else. Enjoy!

Y’all might recall that I love pimento cheese. And if you didn’t already know, I love me some grilled cheese. So what happens when two worlds collide? Culinary bliss. Enjoy!
I saw these cupcakes on Georgetown Cupcake’s Instagram feed and decided to whip up a batch myself. After trawling through dozens of recipes, I settled on a Martha Stewart recipe for chocolate chip cupcakes and a bowl of her raspberry Swiss meringue buttercream. Since her recipe makes 30 cupcakes, I decided to bake in two […]
This is my version of my mom’s life-changing casserole. To be honest, it doesn’t taste as good as the one she makes. Gather: 2 cups of diced cooked chicken 2 cups of cooked rice 2 cans of cream of mushroom soup 1 cup of milk 2 cups of grated cheddar cheese, divided 2 tbsp. of […]
