Let's make beautiful food together!
Maybe this makes me a wimp, but I reeeeally can’t handle the heat when it comes to salsa. Medium is about as crazy as I get on the spiciness scale. So it comes as no surprise that I’m a big fan of salsas that incorporate fruity sweetness into the mix. Any mango salsa lovers out […]
Chris and I recently attended a couples retreat as the official retreat chefs. (Sooo fun!) We spent the weekend with four other couples at a lake house in Heber Springs, Arkansas. (If you’ve never seen Heber Springs, it’s a little slice of Heaven’s beauty on Earth.) I totally LOVED having the opportunity to get away from […]
June was a month of cherries at our house. And fun fact: Cherries have been my favorite fruit since childhood. My mom used to buy me my own bag to eat all by myself every summer on our way to Camp Ne-o-Tez. (There was a farm stand on our way… Chico’s in DeSoto, MO. Anybody […]
I’ll be the first to admit that planning posh events is not one of my talents. Need someone to teach you how to boil a chicken? I’m your gal. Want to know more about how to eat to prevent disease? Bada bing… call me up. I’d even go so far as to call myself creative […]
~ Some time ago I was asked to collaborate with Golden Girl Granola for a product review here on Pretty/Hungry! I had never heard of the company before so I was very intrigued. Afterall, it’s not easy to find a great granola… most of the brands I’ve tried are far too sweet, and are, of […]
The sweet folks over at Catching Fireflies recently approached me about featuring my Salted Caramel Mocha in a holiday-themed post called 6 Mocha Recipes to Warm Your Heart & Soul….. How delightful! I checked out the post and the recipes sure do look tempting. I’m a mocha-lover through and through, and my 2-year-old can vouch […]
~ We might be two weeks away from my due date, but truth be told, today is the day I’ve been eagerly anticipating all summer! (Kidding, Unborn Ava! If you end up reading this in the future, know that your birth far outranks any exciting blogging milestones I will ever have… even when they involve Better […]
I don’t know about you, but sometimes I look through the photo files on my phone/computer and am sorely disappointed in myself. I mean, of all the things I photograph in life, shouldn’t priceless memories with my husband and children rank right up at the top? And yet I find that the photos I do […]
I want to introduce you to a very good friend of mine today… ~ ~ This handsome dude is Zach Cheatham, and I’ve actually mentioned him numerous times on the blog before (like here when I showed you our maternity pictures, or here when I showed you my new business card design!) If I’m being […]
~ I’ve been so excited to share this post with you! This past weekend, I was gifted with a gigantic box of gorgeous, sweet-as-ambrosia, Washington peaches. I absolutely love summer peaches… there’s just nothing like em’ in this world! (The peaches I buy at the grocery store, especially in the wintertime, are totally flavorless… I’ve […]
Happy 4th of July, dear friends! This is one of my favorite holidays ever. (Though I may be biased because it happens to fall one day after the 3rd of July, which is my birthday, which always makes for an extra fun couple of days for this girl!) As we speak I am enjoying a […]
Note: This post is sponsored by Fisher® Nuts. As many of you know, I have recently become fascinated with the health benefits of plant-based eating, and have enjoyed experimenting with using less meat and dairy in my cooking. The results have surprised even me! Vegan eating can be utterly delicious! I am excited that Fisher® Nuts […]
Happy Monday and Happy Cinco de Mayo all! I am honored to be guest posting today on Money Saving Mom® (one of my favorite budgeting, homemaking, & household economy blogs!) In past guest posts I’ve contributed for Crystal’s awesome site, I have typically shared a budget-friendly recipe since cooking is kinda my “thing”… but today the […]
About a year ago, in the midst of a scary time for our family (as Chris and I prepared for my impending mastectomy) we took a little weekend trip to California for a wedding. It turned out to be more fun than we could’ve ever imagined! Now we talk constantly about going back to Palm […]
