Sunday supper: pesto snapper packets

i know i’ve mentioned my chicken rut, where i do the same 6 things with a chicken breast over and over again until even the chicken is bored with me. i kind of have the same issue with fish, except there are only like 2 ways i do it. over and over. and over. one…

Sunday supper: mushroom chicken

y’all, it was gorgeous in Atlanta today — gorgeous! all clear skies and cool air. at least for the moment, it feels like fall has arrived. it got me in the mood for some soft, creamy comfort food. (also, it was finally cool enough to run for the first time in months, so i felt…

Sunday supper: pesto-crusted salmon

wow. i think this might be the first actual meal i’ve cooked in something like 2 weeks! pasta and doctoring a pizza do not count. i totally loved the break, but getting back into a regular routine has been tough this week with Miss Girl being sick Monday and Tuesday (i totally blame her nose…

March first: in like a lamb (tagine)

it’s that time again! on the first of every month, i’m doing (and writing about) something that’s a first for me. this month, in honor of the old saying about March weather, In like a lion, out like a lamb (and vice versa), i decided to cook some lamb, which (kind of surprisingly) i’ve never…

Sunday supper: creamy mushroom tarragon chicken

first, i know. i know. i feel like every other post these days is about food. but the fact is, eating is like one of the only things i do every single day without fail, so there is a lot of material. that’s my excuse and i’m stickin’ to it. this evening is the first…

Sunday supper: random Asian stir-fry

god, things are getting completely exotic around here, right? i call this “random Asian” because it mixes some Indian, Thai and Chinese influences, incorporating curry, Siracha and, um, stir-fry. and chopsticks. definitely chopsticks. also, i just needed a title that sounded more appropriate than “random shit i put in the wok tonight”. also, i actually…

Sunday supper: the last Sunday

today is my very favorite day all year. well, right now, at least. it’s the shortest day of the year. and i am miserably tired of waking up in the dark, taking Miss Girl to school in practically the dark (it’s not light here until about 7:30) and getting home in the dark. as of…

Sunday supper: black bean, chicken & kale soup

feels like it’s been a while since i’ve done one of these posts. with Spy out of town most every Sunday in October, i think most Sunday suppers for a while there consisted of cheese, crackers and wine. not much worth reporting there. it’s gotten so damn cold here all of a sudden that all…

Sunday supper: gameday breakfast

god, it’s weird to watch football at 9:30 in the morning. but with the Falcons in London (along with Spy — and our Falcons flag!) you gotta do what you gotta do, y’all! given that this is the only meal that will likely get cooked in this house today, i figured i’d go ahead and…

Sunday supper: game day grub

i thought it would be fun to kick off the season with a game themed late lunch. i know what i said yesterday about diving off the edge of my cleanse into a vat of pub grub, but pizza and wings just seemed appropriate for the occasion, so that’s what was on the menu for…

Sunday supper: steak & salad

i know. i’ve totally been slackin’ on these posts — and on actually doing anything interesting or different for Sunday supper, for that matter. so, inspired by the August Real Simple, which i just finally got a chance to thumb through this weekend (downtime, wut?), i put on my big girl pants and actually followed…

Sunday supper: Father’s Day feast

i know i’ve taken a couple weeks off from posting these. and wouldn’t you know, the one time, like ever, that i make actual recipes (yes, from the internets, from scratch) i am too caught up in the whole moment to actually take any pictures. also, i have one heck of a cold all of…
