I pulled out the big guns for October in the Pretty Hungry 2015 Recipe Calendar for obvious reasons. (Because October is the best month there is. Duh.) This is the recipe I was most excited about in the whole calendar… which is saying something since this granola is pretty to-die-for. But this one was my baby. […]
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 […]
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 […]
~ 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 […]
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 […]
I don’t know if you all have noticed but it has been a LOOOONG time since I’ve posted an actual recipe here for you. The Kale Casserole doesn’t exactly count because I took those photographs about 3 months before our baby was born. Since Ava’s arrival, it’s been a whole different story. Lots of last […]
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 […]
I hope you plan on unplugging this weekend and spending some time looking at the faces of those around you. (Hopefully they are faces you love dearly… I know that’s the case for me!) I’ll be nowhere near my computer or I-Pad, and the faces I’ll be looking at include: My sweet pregnant (with twins!) sister-in-law… […]
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, […]
I am beyond STOKED about this year’s Pretty/Hungry Recipe Calendar…. and today I finally get to tell you about it and open it up for pre-order. Woohoo!! I put out the first-ever P/H Recipe Calendar last year in 2014. I was as excited then as I am now to unveil it because it was so fun […]
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 […]
~ 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 […]
