Gingerbread Latte

The holidays are upon us. It’s busy. It’s family filled. It’s travel filled. It’s just plain chaos, if we are being honest. Sometimes? We need a break. This? This is a break. A Gingerbread Latte.

Coconut Pumpkin Muffins

Okay, don’t run away. Coconut Pumpkin Muffins may be just the thing you’ve been missing from your life and didn’t know it. As you may well be aware, I have such an affinity for coconut.  Flake, milk, cream, candy…you name it, I love coconut.  Not everyone does, I know, but, not everyone knows a good […]

Don’t Look Down…Flooring Remodel

I live in an old house. It was old when I bought it, 15 years ago.  Built in 1920, it was unlike any other house in the area, the oldest in our neighborhood by decades.  It needed work. So, for 2 years, on a VERY limited budget, we gutted it to stud walls, rewired, replumbed, […]

End Mommy Wars

Mommy Wars.  I’ve written about this before, as part of my involvement with the formula brand Similac.  I met the Similac folks at Mom 2.0 last spring, and really liked what they stood for.  Yes, they are a formula company, and hen Seven was a baby, they were my brand of choice.  But I learned […]

Pumpkin Snickerdoodle Whoopie Pies

I blinked, and August became October.  Literally, I woke up in Florida one morning in mid-August, then blinked, and Seven started back to school, blinked again and landed in Texas for Mixed Conference, and now, October is almost gone.  Blink, blink, blink. What bloggers were aching for a few weeks ago – pumpkin – was […]

Honey Walnut and Shrimp Salad Bites

I travel a lot, as you may already know, and when I do?  I find inspirations for recipes in so many places.  Bakeries, food trucks, Mom & Pops, and of course, fine restaurants.  So, when SeaPak asked me to develop a new recipe for their Shrimptacular celebration of all things shrimp this month, I already […]

Got Milk? Got Kids? Got Snacks?

I have a kiddo. Of course, I think he’s the best there is, and hopefully, you think yours is, too.  You have to be wrong though, as hello?  We already established that MINE s the best.  And this is MY blog, so, I win. Seriously though, we should all be so proud of our children.  […]

Hersheypark in the Dark

Can you believe it’s only a month until Halloween?  A MONTH. That’s frightening. I have always loved Halloween, and now that I have Seven, it’s so much fun to see the holiday from his young eyes.  He’s a huge fan of getting really dressed up – we take our costumes seriously – and even though […]

Spaghetti and Giant Meatballs

October is Healthy Pasta Month. Any month that celebrates pasta? Count me in.  So, imagine my excitement to be the chosen blogger to kick off Healthy Pasta Month for Dreamfields Pasta.  As you probably know, I have been working with Dreamfields for several years now, and since the first taste, they’ve been my go-to brand […]
