You know, I did not invent this dish myself. Let’s just put that out there – I am not the genius behind this.  And heck, truth be told, I didn’t bother to Google – it could be that every blogger and their brother have posted a Fluffy Egg recipe.  very other restaurant in the country […]

Cinnamon Roll Fluffy Pancake Cups


Good morning! Guess what today is? My first EMPTY HOUSE day in MONTHS!  That’s right, y’all…Seven is back to school, and Jon is back at work (he took yesterday off so that we could take Seven to second grade together)…and now the house is officially MINE again!  I survived!

Buttery Coconut Popovers with Fresh Strawberry Syrup
