When we were growing up, my sweet mama was emphatic about making sure her brood ate healthy food. She used olive oil long before it was considered cool; she asked the butcher for the leanest cuts of meat; she refused to stock our pantry with chips, cookies, or Cokes like the rest of my friends' moms did; and she tried to instill in us the belief that fast food is from the Devil (an idea that … [Read more...]

Perhaps it’s because of all the nutritional benefits it boasts, or it’s versatility in salads, soups, and even kale chips (by roasting the leaves in the oven). At any rate, I love making soups that utilize kale, especially this recipe that marries the texture of kale with the flavorful seasonings of sausage, the heartiness … [Read more...]

For many years my dear friend, Carlye, has said, “If I could have another child and if she were a girl, I’d name her January because January is my favorite month of the year.” January is Carlye’s favorite month because she’s learned November and December can really be difficult.
