My husband married me because I can cook. (There were a few other reasons, but I won’t go into that!) I like to try new recipes and rarely make the same thing twice. So, you would think that a beautiful kitchen would have top priority in our house. In theory, this is true. However, in reality, there are many other priorities that took precedence in the 12 years that we have lived in our house: Husband’s new business. Braces. Summer camps. My new law firm. SavorNC magazine. Bad economy. Not to mention the wonderful experiment we were doing with delayed gratification.
This month kicks off the Biltmore Estate’s glorious Festival of Flowers. Spring in the mountains is always a gorgeous time of year, and what better way to view the Estate than when the tulips and azaleas are in full bloom? While enjoying my son’s Spring Break week, we took advantage of the vibrant blue skies and abundant sun to explore Biltmore. We have season passes, which I highly recommend for anyone within a short drive — we use ours frequently enough to make it absolutely worthwhile.
Spring has sprung, and so has the new menu at Carolina Crossroads at The Carolina Inn in Chapel Hill. Today we're thriled to have Executive Chef Jimmy Reale on the blog sharing one of his seasonal recipes. Enjoy!
Transylvania County was the lucky location recipient for some of the scenes in the much anticipated The Hunger Games movie.

Although there are certainly opportunities for economic advantages that will follow the publicity, I can’t help but long for the days of enjoying the privacy that DuPont used to offer.
