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

I grew up surrounded by books. I was part of a family of voracious readers and books lived in stacks on available surfaces everywhere in the house. While I almost never got toys during outings to stores, I could pretty much always count on my parents shelling out for books and I tore through them.

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

 Here it is, Wednesday, hump day of the week-long Tabasco 10 Ingredient Blogger Challenge (see Monday’s post on Spicy Chocolate Meringue Cookies for the full breakdown of the challenge). So far we’ve done cookies and seafood and now we’re on to a vegetarian casserole of eggplant and tomato sauce. Usually my consumption of eggplant involves some kind of cheese or pasta, so it took me a minute to decide what to use the eggplant for other than a straight up roasted or grilled eggplant. I was pondering the idea of an eggplant tomato stack and then was into contemplating layers, which led me to this casserole, which is kind of like a lasagna, where eggplant is used instead of pasta. While
