Kiawah Island, SC in Pictures

Hi guys!! Sorry it has been so long since my last post, I’m trying to keep my head above water on the law school front right now. Things are going well and I’m enjoying it so far! I have some new recipes that I made before I classes began which I hope to post soon, but for now I have my pictures from my last vacation before law school for you to enjoy.

In early August, Chris and I were lucky enough to be able to head down to Kiawah Island, SC for a few days during the PGA Championship. The resort and golf course were absolutely gorgeous, and I felt extremely fortunate to be able to attend such a prestigious event.

I hope everyone has a wonderful weekend and hopefully I’ll be back with another new post soon.

Without further ado, here are some pictures!

Israeli Couscous and Grape Tomato Salad

I bought a basil plant a few weeks ago when I made my Summer Vegetable Pie, and later I realized that I needed to use all my fresh basil on some new recipes. I saw this original recipe in my June issue of Bon Appetit. With a few tweaks here and there I had a lighter couscous salad that screamed summer. It’s super easy to boot!

Weekend Snapshots August 3-5, 2012

Happy Monday friends! Grab your reading glasses, I have a long one for y’all today! I spent this past weekend visiting with friends and family at the beach, and as always eating some wonderful food!! On Friday, my mom and I met my great Uncle Gerry and Aunt Linda for lunch with some of their friends at M.R. Ducks in Ocean City. M.R. Ducks is a famous bar and grill on the bayside of Talbot Street, very close to the Route  50 bridge!

Instant Seduction Pork Chops

The name says it all, Instant Seduction Pork Chops y’all! Just kidding, these are some fantastic chops though! I came across this recipe in my “100 Recipes Every Woman Should Know” cookbook which is full of recipes with fun names like this one. Chris and I are big fans of pork, it’s easy to prepare and not terribly expensive, so I thought this would be a great dinner to make before he took the bar two weekends ago. He was asking me to make them again before we had even finished the dishes! A winner in my book which will be made again!

Mussels in a Tomato Wine Broth

A few weeks ago I was in a food rut and needed something to pull me out of my funk. Enter this mussel recipe! I had never attempted to make mussels at home, but knew they were relatively cheap and easy so I thought I would give it a shot! I was tempted to do a classic butter and white wine sauce, but I saw this recipe on Cooking Light and thought it sounded great, and it isn’t as bad for the waist line! Chris and I were not let down!
