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 […]
I nominate myself for the longest blog post title of the year award.
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!
We had some leftover mashed potatoes from Thanksgiving and decided to make tater tots with them. These were pretty tasty (though not overly crunchy) and would be amazing loaded with baked potato toppings (like the ones at Arby’s). Gather: 3 cups of leftover mashed potatoes1 egg1/4 cup of flour1 cup of panko breadcrumbs (we had […]

Say that 10 times fast. On vacation back in June, I ordered a sandwich with sweet potato fries at Moon River Brewing Company. They came with the most delightfully wonderful dipping sauce. It tasted pretty similar to the yummy icing on a fresh, warm Cinnabon. Pair that sweet sauce with crispy sweet potato fries (or […]
I first found this recipe from The Pioneer Woman. We had a few leftover potatoes, and I gave it the ole college try. I used butter instead of olive oil and threw on my standard spud seasonings, Cajun blend and garlic salt. These smashed potatoes are similar to eating a baked potato but without all the […]
During our outlet excursion, we stopped by Le Gourmet Chef. Mac meandered over to the pasta aisle and discovered a basil pesto mezzaluna. Mezzaluna is a half-moon shaped filled pasta similar to ravioli. Due to a week of watering, our cherry tomato plant was ripe for picking. Ergo, I created a caprese recipe. Apparently, I […]
