April Showers Bring May…

Georgia’s Kitchen events! (Oh, and flowers too. Lots and lots of flowers.) After hibernating all winter long, I’ve got some terrific new events lined up for May and I couldn’t be more excited. (The sunshine and warmer temps aren’t hurting either.)

Kicking things off is a dinner at Villa Borghese … More

German and Dutch versions of Georgia's Kitchen

Last night I came back from a wild day at American Girl Place (my newly-turned seven year olds are gaga for all things AG) to find a box of German and Dutch copies of Georgia’s Kitchen. I love how completely different the … More

Resolution #1: Light More Candles

Resolution #1: Light More Candles

Burn, Baby, Burn

Yesterday, while I was feeling all resolution-y and determined to get rid of stuff I no longer need or use, I discovered a plethora of scented candles tucked into various rooms, drawers and cabinets throughout my house. I found nine in my bedroom alone – three on … More

Talking Turkey: Mamie’s Pumpkin Chiffon Pie

I don’t like pie. I like cobblers, crumbles and crisps, but I don’t like pie. For the most part, people have a hard time understanding my aversion to pie. While it’s not something I generally get into, except with fellow non-pie lovers (yes, they do exist), I will say it … More

Talking Turkey: Grandma Adelia’s Stuffing

I’ve been eating my Grandmother Adelia’s stuffing since I was a little girl, when it was the centerpiece of my Thanksgiving Day feast, along with sides of turkey, mashed “badados,” green beans and, if I was feeling adventurous, pearled onions (I usually wasn’t.) When I was 20 years old, I … More

Family, turkey, my Grandmother Adelia’s butter-drenched stuffing and my mom’s legendary pumpkin chiffon pie do not a bad dinner make. (Check … More

The Statue of Liberty

A good friend recently asked me what’s been the most exciting thing about getting published. For sure, the day I sold Georgia’s Kitchen ranks as number one. Nothing can compare to the feeling of learning the manuscript I’d spent years writing, revising and polishing was going … More

Garden Tomatoes

On Tuesday, we picked up our share from our amazing CSA, Sisters Hill Farm, which included five pounds of tomatoes. Combined with the ten (tomatoes, not pounds) from our own garden, we are definitely long tomatoes. For a tomato-loving family like ours, this is not a bad … More

This week, I’m giving away the hilarious and moving I Feel Bad About My Neck by the equally hilarious (and moving) Nora Ephron. Let me just come right out and say that I pretty much worship Nora Ephron. Why? Because she’s clever, quick, insightful, honest, hilarious (did I already say … More

The Boat House at Little River Lake

Nova Scotia in early September is a lovely place to be. The days are warm, the nights are cool, the fields are green and and dotted with haystacks out of a Monet painting and seem to go on forever. Meandering country roads are … More
