I posted this recipe over at Adrianne’s blog a few months back but decided y’all needed this goodness here. Growing up I wasn’t too fond of pie. I remember visiting my grandma when I was young and her baking a fresh cherry pie each and every time. I would always find myself trying to escape the dinner table before the slice was placed in front of me. Weird right? I wasn’t very successful at sneaking away, so I would end… Read more »

   Allergies are kind of a funny thing when it comes to food and kids. You don’t want them to feel like they are missing out too much when they are little because everyone around them can eat all the “kid” foods, but now, since we have done away with most processed food for so long, you also realize how much you don’t miss it at all as a parent. Yes, things take a little bit longer to make, but… Read more »

I love cooking. I could spend all day in the kitchen with my Taylor Swift station on Pandora and little people running around my feet. It’s my happy place. I grew up watching my Dad whip up fancy recipes but other than him a love for cooking wasn’t really in our family history. I rarely walked into another home that smelt of pot roast that had been cooking all day, or eat a bowl full of warm fresh soup with homemade bread…. Read more »

Anyone else out there a creature of habit? I totally am, and really hope that I am not by myself in this one. I’m pretty sure I always take the same route to the same places and if the streets closed, well, I give up and sit on the side of the road until I can talk myself off the side of the cliff. I am kidding. Kind of. What I mean by creature of habit is, I get on… Read more »

While I have yet to photograph beautiful assortments of cookies for y’all this year….fear not!! I have posted plenty of cookie recipes, can you tell that they are my weakness, so I decided to post a small compilation of some of my favorites for you all today. I don’t always gift presents to all the teachers and helpers and amazing neighbors in our lives…but I do bake. And I have learned the key to anyones heart usually lies in their stomachs….at least… Read more »

The breakfast sandwich. During my third pregnancy I wanted to eat eggs and only eggs, specifically eggs in the form of a breakfast sandwich. I think it helped that at that time we had backyard chickens and were inundated with eggs. Backyard chickens are good for that, but bad for morning sickness (dirty little animals). But now, since I am not going to be experiencing that terrible pregnancy symptom anymore, I say bring to me all the chickens and all… Read more »

It’s almost October, that means it’s almost time for everything pumpkin. Am I right?! I have a confession. I don’t count down the days for the Pumpkin Spice Latte to come to Starbucks like most people. I love pumpkin. Pumpkin smells, pumpkin pie, pumpkin cookies (be gentle with that one it was one of my first recipes) pumpkin candles, pumpkin soap, you get it right!? But pumpkin spice lattes aren’t my jam. I do however love Starbucks pumpkin cream cheese… Read more »

My second born receives love through food. God blessed me big time with that one, because we all know I love to cook, and having a child who feels special when he gets a special treat, well, that just makes me feel all special as well. Lots of special going on here. Especially with these little sandwiches of deliciousness. I have spent a majority of my twenties pregnant, or nursing, and we all know how ravenous you can be when… Read more »

My biggest goal for this school year was to be more creative and intentional about packing lunches. I am proud to say that so far I have been pretty darn successful, granted we are only a month into it, but its the little things people. I have mentioned many times before about my second borns food allergies and the challenges we face with processed foods. One of the main things that I struggled with for awhile was condiments. Pretty much any and all… Read more »

Today marks a very special day. My husbands birthday. As y’all are very much aware of by now, I love birthdays. My husband, not so much. He’s given up on the birthday celebrations for himself, but I haven’t stopped trying to convert him. So, before I continue on with this delicious recipe post, Happy Birthday my love, this year is going to be a good one, because you deserve it. Okay. Enough sap for you all. German chocolate cake is… Read more »
