Cranberry Orange Scones

Cranberry Orange Scones

It never ceases to amaze me just how many variations in food you can make simply by combining different combinations of flour, butter, leavener, butter, and milk or cream. One combination gives you a biscuit, another a pound cake. It makes tasting and testing different recipes an exercise in surprise, frustration, and fascination. Which is…

Warm Berry Buckle + Ice Cream

Warm Berry Buckle + Ice Cream

Prior to shutting down Eat.Fly.Love. and moving all our posts over here to The Grape Soda Club so that Scott and I could make this a team effort, I toyed around with starting another blog – a cooking blog – under the title “Bright Red Notebook.” Why the title? Because just about all of my recipes in progress…

Arugula White Pizza with Prosciutto and Honey

Arugula White Pizza with Prosciutto and Honey

I love tinkering with pizza recipes. Not the dough, though. I have a tried and true pizza dough recipe that I come back to every time, and every time I make it, it’s awesome. It’s one of the great constants in my universe. But no matter how constant the dough is, you can put any…

Sour Cream Biscuits and Why You Should Buy Local Honey

Sour Cream Biscuits and Why You Should Buy Local Honey

When it comes to produce, if you want what’s healthy and has the best load of nutrients and vitamins, it’s all about what’s fresh, raw, and unprocessed – so local is the way to go. The same goes for honey. Raw local honey is full of all kinds of important nutrients and vitamins. But it’s…

Maple Banana Nut Mini-Muffins

I thought that when we moved to Virginia, that travel was going to slow down for Scott and me. I thought we’d be able to put some roots down and enjoy sitting back on our patio Adirondack chairs with some sweet tea or wine and kick up our feet and enjoy. I just made it…

No-Knead Rustic Bread

No-Knead Rustic Bread

I go through a lot of kitchen highs and lows. Energy-wise, I mean. Some days, I feel like making wonderfully complex and artistic dishes. Other days…I just want to throw something in the microwave and punch a button or get something ready to eat from the store. However, when it comes to bread, I’m picky. I…

Cloverleaf Dinner Rolls

Cloverleaf Dinner Rolls

I love pushing outside my comfort zone, as you all know, and that extends to food as well! New {to me} tastes, ingredients, and cuisines. Historical research. Flavor-filled and educational culinary travel. Food plays a big role in learning the stories of a place and about its people, which can be the greatest adventure. Except…

BBQ Chicken Pizza + All Purpose Pizza Dough

BBQ Chicken Pizza + All Purpose Pizza Dough

Life has been crazy lately. Okay, if we’re going to be honest, life is usually some variety of crazy around here. But normally it’s the kindly-old-Aunt-Betty kind of crazy, the kind that loves bangles and enormous flower prints and spends most of her visit sipping spiked tea and cheerfully watching the neighbors through the side…

Apple Bacon Stuffing

Apple Bacon Stuffing

Not a lot has changed around my house from the Thanksgiving dinners we had when I was growing up. Ingredients, maybe. Amount of wine consumed, sure. But not much else. Thanksgiving at our house always took place at about 2pm. My dad had us all helping with the prep, but when it was cooking time,…
