Breakfast Cookies

Happy Spring! Spring Break is coming to an end here, and its sadness at our house.  We opted to stay home and get some projects done around the house.  I can’t wait to share with you pics of the finished project…as soon as I finish. Breakfast is one of my absolute favorite meals and there…

#Thunderup like never before

Russell is in the zone – while you might be literally 6 inches from him, he has no idea you are there, because he is IN. THE. ZONE.  Which helps when you are a shameless fan with your phone taking videos of him.

Chocolate Pie

Chocolate needs no introduction.  And pie.  I could say so much about pie.  It’s by far my favorite dessert.  I like all kinds of pie too.  But today I need to share with you this Chocolate pie recipe.  I made it for a pie auction.  And when a man came back into the kitchen and…

Happy 2018!!

Hi my long neglected internet friends! I’ve missed you, and this little space. The end of 2017 was a hard one.  The schedule was overbooked and I lost my dear sweet Aunt Linda to brain cancer at the beginning of December.  So I enjoyed the rest of the month with family and the slower pace…

Rain, Rain, Go Away

Everyone knows I love rain.  I’m the first one to put on social media how much I love it once it rolls into town.  I love a good day where the skies are overcast and the pitter patter on my window makes me sleepy.  Actually just thinking about it makes me long for a long…

Restructure

I’ve missed hanging out here on my little space on the internet.  Just like life can do, its gotten a little crazy for me.  More responsibility at work, 3 kids playing sports, a dog that is like a child and looks to me for attention and exercise, and for some reason a house that always…

Pecans, optional

You only have to land on this blog for 2.5 seconds and see that I have a love of cooking. And it’s not just cooking. It’s cooking really tasty things. And I’m not ashamed to admit I’m that nerd who reads cookbooks – for fun. I love imagining what that list of ingredients will produce…

Shortcakes as in Strawberry

When I was a little girl Strawberry Shortcake included angel food cake.  And while I’m totally ok with angel food cake, I’m in love with actual shortcakes.  Like, real shortcakes.  They are a lot like biscuits – just sweeter.  And that is really what was meant to be had with your vine ripened strawberries and…

The Great Tech Detox of 2017: The results are in!

I’ve been asked quite a bit by my fellow moms in the trenches how the “no technology” thing was going.  And I’m here to tell you, I’ve done the research for you guys.  They survive.  And they get over it.   And they find other things to do.  Don’t be afraid my mom friends.  Dig…

The Great Tech Detox of 2017

It’s been 18 hours since we did the unthinkable.  Since we took away our kids technology.  And we told them we don’t know when they will get it back.  It wasn’t just one thing that led to the decision.  It’s been brewing for a while.  My husband, Andy and I have had multiple conversations about…

What’s for Dinner Wednesday : Kitchen Sink Pasta Salad

Pasta Salad.  It might be the best kept secret of dinners on the fly.  Who doesn’t have some sort of pasta in their pantry?  And who doesn’t have a plethora of veggies that need to be used up?  And who doesn’t really want to put that much effort into dinner? This dinner has a million…
