Sun-Dried Tomato and Artichoke Frittata Love

Do you remember, Sara? She’s the one that did the Sundays with Friends Lasagna recipe. She is a sincere fellow Foodie, and she graced me with a wonderful birthday present yesterday. As if the gift bag (the best gift bag in the world!) wasn’t enough, the item contained in the gift bag was perfect! That…

Birthday Brunch at Iron Hen Cafe…

Crabcake Benedict I know I just wrote about Iron Hen Cafe. But, I couldn’t resist going back on Sunday for my Birthday Brunch. Since I have already poured my heart out with all the details as to why this place is a tremendous place to eat, I’ll just show you photographs of the food we…

Picky Eaters: Are they really that Picky?

Since I am on vacation for a few days coming up, I asked a few of the fans on The Onyx Plate’s Facebook page (click here to go and become a “fan”) what they wanted to see me write about. One wise individual suggested Picky Eaters. I thought and thought about how to write about…

Southern Gal vs. Crepes

You ever get that itch that you just can’t scratch? That urge to do something that you can’t stop focusing on? The bug up your….well, you get the point by now. I had this crazy urge to attempt to make Crepes for my first time. With a little help from step-by-step instructions provided by my…

The perfect Saturday morning breakfast…to me anyhow…

I’m sure some of you know how it feels to have to rush in the morning to get yourself ready. I can’t even imagine having to get someone else ready as well. Honestly, I’m good if I can even make it on time to work. The bed is just so comfy. Come to think of…

Blueberry Muffins make me smile.

Countless mornings, the smell of Blueberry Muffins would sweep it’s way through the house while growing up. It’s a smell that no candle can duplicate. The candle can’t duplicate the sound of the timer going off. It can’t duplicate the distinct sound of a pan scraping across the oven rack as the hot pan is…

Sundays with Friends: The Driven Cook

I have had this ridiculous urge to make quiche lately. Not that super healthy, weight-loss quiche (that I have been guilty of making in the past, and wish I had lived a little and made a real quiche). But, that rich, full of flavor quiche. The kind where when you take a bite of it,…

I want YOU! (Yes, I’m pointing at you!)

I’ve been thinking lately. Sometimes, this is a huge downfall of mine. But, in this case, I think it’s quite the opposite. I’ve been observing a lot of these other sites. They usually have a common way to relate to their readers. A good amount of them are keyed around pleasing children, and go as…

The BIG 1-0-0 and Tillamook! Thank you!

“Look at a stone cutter hammering away at his rock, perhaps a hundred times without as much as a crack showing in it. Yet at the hundred-and-first blow it will split in two, and I know it was not the last blow that did it, but all that had gone before.” ~ Jacob A. Riis…

Product Recommendation: Caribou Coffee–Amy’s Blend

It’s no secret to those that know me.  I absolutely adore a good cup of coffee.  It has to have just the right flavor blend, and it can’t be any of that weak stuff either.  I need to taste it, feel it, and smell it brewing.  With this out of the way…I have found a…

Hungry Jack and Honey Bear

No, these aren’t sweet Southern nicknames…although, they would make great nicknames for the right people.  In my under-the-weather kind of mood lately, I have still been cooking and keeping the hub fed well.  This morning, I woke up and asked him if he minded making me some warm buttered pancakes with syrup.  He happily obliged…
