Babycakes Friday: Chocolate Cupcakes

Last time I made cupcakes I confessed to you that I don’t really like cupcakes. It’s not that I don’t like to eat them. It’s because I’m not good at frosting them. So why make them again? Because next week’s Babycake’s recipe uses these little ditties as a base. So I had to make cupcakes … Continue reading

Butternut Bacon Pasta

Adrienne, Punky, and I headed out for our walk this morning without so much as glancing outside. We were half way through our route when I realized that it couldn’t be more than 50 degrees outside. Luckily, I had the foresight to put a hat on my little bald baby, but her poor little hands … Continue reading

Weekly Salad

I’m still on a salad bender. We’re going on about two months here. I’m worried that with all this healthy, I’m going to wake up and crave fried chicken and mashed potatoes every day for two months. We’ll just have to deal with that as it comes. Until then, I ‘ll keep showing you my … Continue reading

Kale and Parmesan Flat Bread

I’m on a pizza kick. Remember that pizza I made this weekend? I haven’t really wanted anything else since then. But here’s a little weird tidbit you probably didn’t know about me – I don’t like tomatoes. I know, I know. Okay, I sort of take it back – because I don’t hate tomatoes, but … Continue reading

Sweet Potato Season

I had to document my first sweet potato of the season. Covered in goat cheese and toasted pecans. I put a couple of ‘taters in the crockpot (wrapped in foil) and then went to the library for my weekly tutoring. One little boy I help on Mondays forgot his homework, and his mama had to … Continue reading

Sandwich Man

Oh hey there. Just another Sunday morning at our house. I offered to make Meeker a special Sunday morning breakfast, and he said… Turkey sandwich, please. So I made the best dang turkey sandwich I knew how to make. There you have it – oh happy (sun)day! Enjoy yours, we’re off to spend ours with … Continue reading

Saturday Night Pizza

Pizza and Saturday night go together like college football and beer. (Actually, all four of those things go together pretty well.) That is, if you like watching football, which, I’m sorry to say – I do not. My Texas bred family is appalled, but I just can’t help it. I try to like it. I … Continue reading

Babycakes Friday: Blondies

I’ve learned a lesson. When you are trying to bake blondies at 10pm, and Babycakes tells you to use evaporated cane sugar, do it. Even though it’s more expensive than regular sugar. Even though it will take an extra trip to the (specialty) grocery store. If you want your Babycakes blondies to turn out, do … Continue reading

More Juice

Thank you all so much for your kind comments about my mama. We are just overjoyed, and it meant so much to me (and her!) that you all were so happy and celebratory right along with her. I feel so blessed to have such supportive readers – thank you. Now, for more juice. I had … Continue reading

White Chili and Good News

Can I just tell you about the unbelievable day I had? 1. I spent the morning at MOPS – which is a basically a chance every other Tuesday to drop sweet little A off at the nursery at our church and sit, eat, socialize with other adults (!), and learn how to be a better … Continue reading
