Let's make beautiful food together!
It seems that every time I find myself drafting out a new post in my head about a monumental event, like my birthday, or the New Year, I find myself getting all sappy and reflective. Like this year, for instance. It was supposed to be an uphill year, after two really reeeeeally bad ones for my […]
You’ll have to forgive my long absence… the PH blog has been undergoing a major spruce-up! So whaddya think of the new design? Our focus in re-designing was to make this space more user-friendly, less cumbersome to my server, and (of course) more attractive to you (and me!) I’m SO pleased with the result, and excited […]
~ Hiya! So here’s the thing. I’m not a crafty mom. I have my strengths… but they do not include the patience to sit and weave pot holders or finger paint Easter Bunny masks with my two-year-old. So the fact that I made these Easter pops and dyed Easter eggs this year with my young-un’ […]
Last week I hosted a (long-overdue) birthday dinner for my brother’s sweet wife, Kelly. And OH MAN, was it fabulous! As is our family’s birthday custom, the birthday girl got to handpick the entire menu and was not required to take into account anyone else’s food preferences whatsoever! She chose a very carbtastic meal, and […]
In many Thanksgivings past, I’ve counted down the days til the big feast… fantasizing about all the amazing ways I planned to “cheat” on whatever diet I was on at the time. Pie, stuffing, countless buttered rolls, and an obligatory bite of turkey. (Turkey’s never been my fave. Anyone else grossed out by the smell??) Well, […]
~ Something very odd has happened to me lately… I’m am losing my desire for super-sugary sweets. What is going ON with me?!? It’s quite baffling. All of a sudden I cannot finish a pint of Ben & Jerry’s (which is unheard of!) Even my ongoing love-affair with Seasonal Reeses just isn’t burning as hotly […]
Today, I am doing something I never do. I am interrupting the schedule of posts I had planned to bring you this week in order to give you this recipe. (Which for someone like me, who thrives on planning, making lists, and checking items off one by one… is a pretty big deal. Go ahead […]
~ Well, we are nearing the end of August. And believe me, NO ONE is happier to be bidding summer farewell than this girl! For one thing: I’m 8 months pregnant. For another: I live in Arkansas, where it has been in the upper 90s with 200% humidity since May. I’m itching to see those leaves […]
~ My little girl turned two last Thursday. Thus far, her milestones have not been overly-emotional for me… perhaps because each day she gets older, she seems to get more fun! Seeing her enjoy her 2nd birthday party was no exception. It was truly a blast! She was so much more aware of what was going […]
~ 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 […]
My husband works with some wonderful, wonderful people. And on Monday, those wonderful people hosted a double baby shower for him and another co-worker from his office (who happens to be due just a week before us!) We were so honored to be included in the festivities, and I, of course, had a hay-day photographing every detail of […]
I’ve been posting some pretty darn healthy stuff around here lately, so I thought now might be a good time to take a break from the healthy stuff and show you these cookie bars (or “blondies” if you prefer that title.) ~ ~ If you don’t take one look at that picture above and want […]
~ I am uniquely blessed in that (currently) most of my close family members live within an hour of me. Both of my siblings and their wonderful spouses, plus my adoring in-laws, all live in a neighboring town just one hour away! And we even have a decent smattering of cousins that live right here […]
These little beauties are so pop-able and decadent, and fresh and Spring-y, and so pretty! I highly recommend you make them the next time you entertain a group of ladies for Brunch or throw a tea party. (Speaking of which, I cannot wait til Elsa is old enough to appreciate tea parties. I have so […]
I recently discovered that Mother’s Day is, like, one week away! (Don’t know what rock I’ve been living under… it just snuck up on me!) But don’t worry, Dads and kiddos out there, I’ve totally got you covered! I have the perfect idea to help you make the Mama in your life feel special: Breakfast in Bed! […]
