Let's make beautiful food together!
~ Oh hello there. I have a fabulous recipe to share with you today. I invented it. And I am in love with it. But I do feel the need to provide a disclaimer and tell you that my husband does NOT love it. (And now I feel the need to disclaim that disclaimer and […]
“Let food be thy medicine and medicine be thy food.” Hippocrates 460 B.C As you all know, I’ve recently had a baby! She’s two weeks old, in fact. And throughout the past two weeks, we’ve been very blessed to receive some wonderful food gifts from friends and family to help relieve the burden of food […]
~ Hello there! Good news- We had our new baby just over a week ago and she is PERFECT, as you can clearly see from the photo above. If you want to see more little life moments like these, I’m on Instagram! And if you’re into birth stories, I wrote about Ava’s here and here. […]
I recognize that there is a very important time and place for “quick and easy” recipes… I’m all for them! It’s just that today’s recipe is not one of them. #sorrynotsorry ~ ~ You see, I have this strange attraction to complicated food. (Actually, let’s call it “complex” food… that sounds fancier and less scary.) […]
~ 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 […]
Ok… so this is just one girl’s opinion (feel free to vehemently disagree with me)… but I believe it is nothing short of a sin, a travesty, and a crying shame to cook garden-fresh tomatoes! ~ ~ Was that a confusing statement? What I mean is that in my ever-so-humble opinion, there is only one […]
~ ~ Intrigued by the title of this post? Well, here’s the deal… I couldn’t bring myself to title this pesto as it should be titled, because doing so would require me to break TWO of my cardinal rules of recipe naming. Those rules are: #1- Do not include the word “protein” in a recipe […]
~ I have a major crush on a local establishment called the Old Mill Bread Co. Ever heard of it? Well, frankly, I curse the day I first learned about it, because I now find it very difficult to be content in life without Old Mill bread being a daily part of my diet. It’s just […]
~ Hi all! I’m starting to worry that my fellow junk-food-lovers out there are going to think I’m forever lost to the Dark Side. 😉 I know I’ve been posting a heckuvah lot of health-food on here lately! And the reason for that is quite simple… these are the foods I’ve been cooking for our […]
~ I recently found myself with an abundance of fresh broccoli on hand (as in: at least twelve crowns of fresh broccoli.) Now normally I never buy broccoli fresh, because it suits our budget much better to buy it frozen and I don’t have to worry about it going bad that way. But this week […]
You might recall my excitement over the Mother’s Day dinner I got to prepare for my mother-in-law last weekend. She is such an amazing woman! Brilliantly smart, patient and sweet, SO wise, and did I mention she adores my baby? I am so thankful to have her in my life! (And since she’s the only […]
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 […]
~ OH I had some fun this weekend! If you’re a regular reader, then you know about our strict grocery budget. And if you know about our strict grocery budget, then you also know that, while I think all cooking is “fun”, my opportunities to have some real fun in the kitchen and indulge my more […]
This recipe really hit a home run in our household! It’s cheesy and totally taco-y… everything you’ve come to love and expect from a Mexican meal, minus one thing – the meat! (I should mention to any newcomers that we are by no means anti-meat in my family. We love meat! We just don’t eat it […]
I thought you might like to see a few pictures of the lovely Easter Brunch we enjoyed here over the weekend. It was an intimate affair (just six of us) and the toddler was in bed for nap time… so I was able to go “all out” with a delectable menu and pretty place settings. […]
