Banana Pudding Pancakes

Seriously…Banana Pudding. My mom and my Aunt Sue both make the best Banana Pudding.  Personally, I have never attempted it, because I fear.  I fear mine will not be near what theirs is – lush, sweet, and bursting with flavor and childhood giddiness.   Instead, I wait for potlucks, Thanksgiving, the Fourth of July, and […]

Mohawk Flooring–The Downstairs Install

Time for an update, everyone. The Mohawk Flooring? All of the laminate and carpeting I struggled with picking out? It came.   Before we ordered all of it, though, Jimmie, the owner of Floored in Christiansburg, VA, came over to the house to make sure everything (and I do mean everything) was measured perfectly. He […]

Mixed Red Berry Pancake Muffins

I should bake and cook with berries more.  I don’t know why I don’t…they are so full of flavor and such vibrant little morsels of goodness.  We used to have a great row of raspberry bushes behind our house…the berries were huge and the seeds were small…and they tasted just like heaven.  I would have […]

New Flooring Update…Mohawk Carpet and Laminate

Remember a few weeks ago when I showed you my nasty, nasty floors, and you judged me for living in what appeared to be squalor, and we kinda stopped being friends? Well, folks, we can be friends again. Thanks to Mohawk, whom I met last year at a really fun conference where they were letting […]

Easy Macaroni Salad…and Better Bakery

I am a huge fan of bready things.  Rolls. Pretzels. Burgers, calzones, subs, pizza.  If it’s yeasty, I want it. I love to make bread, but let’s be honest…it takes time. Lots of time.  The kneading, the rising. It’s devoting an entire Saturday to the kitchen when you really just want to nap and Netflix.  […]

Staying Active After the Resolution Wears Off

I think we all do this… We find ourselves in a rut, and by December, we are ready to better ourselves, and vow to make a change in the New Year. Eat Better. Exercise More. Organize.  Manage Our Time. Stop Eating Cheetos For Breakfast. We get so excited that our lives are finally going to […]

Wild Blueberry Cornbread Muffins

New Year, folks. Time to start all over again.  Wash away the old, bring in the new.  But before we can do all that, we have to look at ourselves with fervor, and demand answers to our own questions.  The hard truth, the questions  we struggle to answer. For example…What kind of cornbread lover are […]

Spinach and Almond Topped Chicken

I love when recipes just come together, are so, so easy, and turn out to be the kind of delicious that requires you to add said recipe to your go-to repertoire. Good stuff. Take, for example, this chicken recipe I created for Dole. Spinach and Almond Topped Chicken. Healthy, full of great flavors, and incredibly […]

Spaghetti with Crab in Champagne Lemon Cream Sauce

It is almost 2016. Time for me to finally, finally, get my things in order.  I should probably fill out that 2015 Day Planner I just HAD TO HAVE, but, why bother?  I reckon it’s a little late for that now. I’ll just be better in 2016.  I will start it off right.  Get back […]
