Autumn Spiced Roast Chicken & a New Darling Eats Video

I get asked quite frequently “What’s your signature dish?” I reply with some sort of hemming and hawing until it hits me: roasted chicken. Roast chicken is one of those dinner’s that’s a gift that keeps on giving- everyone can get a piece of the bird that they like (white or dark meat) and you’re typically left with leftovers that have the best flavor the next day. When I roast a chicken, I typically gravitate towards Autumn spices (like fresh pomegranate and rosemary). My friend Andrea asked me to review her new cookbook and try one of her recipes. When I came upon this Autumn Roasted Chicken recipe I knew that would be exactly what I recreate.

Spicy Sichuan from Masterpiece in Duluth

This is a sponsored conversation written by me on behalf of Walmart. The opinions and text are all mine. Some of my favorite flavor combinations come from Asian restaurants, and Atlanta has a whole host of spectacular places to choose from just North of the city in Duluth. One afternoon, we decided to pay a

Classic Cognac Loafers

For me, it’s the details on something that pushes the urge from a passive “want” to definite “need”. I have been looking for a pair of comfortable loafers to loaf around in on quick errands and travel, so when I saw these beautiful basket weave detailed loafers from French Sole, I knew I had to snatch

Fall Floral Blouse & Wide Leg Jeans

Let me start this by exclaiming: this shirt won’t break the bank. I was doing what most girls do and looking for some last minute table decor at Target when I casually walked by the style section. I saw this navy floral blouse and knew it would be coming home with me. At $25 it was

End of Summer Approved Shirt Dress

You never forget your first. That’s what they always say about a lot of things you love, for me that’s shirtdresses. I remember it like it was yesterday: I paired the shirtdress with a chunky coral colored necklace,  a pair of grey tights tucked into cowboy boots and cinched at the waist with a belt. My college

Peach Blackberry and Prosciutto Flatbread

I’m obsessed with peach and prosciutto together in a recipe. I’ve made a peach and prosciutto flatbread once before on this blog, but this time around I wanted to zhoosh it up with the addition of this oil-free pesto (have you made it at home yet? I’m obsessed), some blackberries and Tillamook’s Mozzarella Shredded cheese.

Status Update

I made a conscious decision to not over-share my personal life on this blog. After two years of blogging, I felt like this had turned into an online diary and not a place where you could find anecdotes intertwined with stories that would inspire your next recipe, travel destination, outfit, or home design. However, today I

Girls in White Dresses

Even though Labor Day may mark the “unofficial end” to Summer, I won’t be putting this white dress to rest just yet. As the heat still lingers in the city, this white dress will still find it’s way into my weekly rotation of clothing. By adding a green jacket or a cream moto jacket, I

Tom Collins Twist

When it comes to tailgating, there are a couple of ways to ensure your guests are well taken care of. In the Guide to Tailgating, I listed out what to serve, what to wear and how to style it all, but when it comes to drinks, you can go above and beyond the typical bucket of
