My favorite thing I ever got to eat out of my college cafeteria was cornbread. I couldn’t get enough of it. My second favorite, which was available with much greater regularity, were the omelets. They were cooked to order, right in front of you, and it was the perfect balm to soothe the sting of an 8am French class during my first year at UVA. Since that time I’ve fallen in love with many delicious egg dishes, including quiche (good quiche, not weird scary quiche) and frittatas. Earlier this year I added the Spanish tortilla to the list. While at the Atlanta Food and Wine Festival earlier this year, I attended a session called Pantry Punch and Emergency Bites. The

It’s happened. My freezer has hit maximum capacity. It’s actually probably over-stuffed, and I always find a reason to stick something else in there, so I’ve decided that it’s time to start reducing the volume in there. Honestly, it’s to the point where I don’t even know what’s contained within the small confines of my freezer, so I’m taking it upon myself to start using the treasures I uncover from within its depths (so I can keep adding to them, of course).

They make soup taste awesome, with minimal effort on my part,

One day I decided I should learn how to make Thai food rather than relying on take out from my local place. I started investigating different recipes and ingredients and then called my brother one day while perusing the Thai ingredients in the grocery store. “Hey Matt, what is fish sauce?” Now, what I’m about to do is for your own good, because what my brother told me can’t be forgotten. I’m not going

Oven Ribs with Homemade Peach BBQ Sauce | Peaches Please

Every summer my dad and I go through the process of making some good, classic Memphis pulled pork barbecue. In fact, that’s what we did for the 4th of July. The meat went on the grill at 10 pm on the 3rd and we took turns getting up through the night, tromping across a field to where the smoker/grill is stationed next to the barn, stoking the fire, basting the meat and then hustling back across the field to crawl back into bed. It’s a process, but it’s worth it. However, it’s not a process I’m willing to go through all that often. Sometimes I want some sticky, tender pork deliciousness without sleep deprivation. Sometimes I don’t even feel like
