Lemon Blueberry Yogurt Bundt Cake With @Chobani

When I was in my early teens, I loved to bake cookies and cupcakes. In the past year or so, I have found a renewed love of baking with the help of a fun bundt cake baking group. I work full time, but when the weekend comes around, I love to grab my favorite bundt [...]

Quick and Easy Grilled Chicken and Beef Kabobs

Chicken and Beef Grilled Kabobs 2

Here in the South the kids are back in school already, and that means the return of hectic schedules. As, after school activities increase, our family can usually be found on the run multiple days of the week. I’m not the strongest weekly meal planner in the world, especially since DH is the one doing [...]

Banana Cupcakes with Peanut Butter Frosting and Bacon Sprinkles


Most days I like to think I eat meals that are pretty healthy. Green smoothies for breakfast. A salad or veggies with dinner are a must. Red meat usually no more than once or twice a week. But today we’ll deviate just a bit. We’re going to put all that healthy eating on hold. Today [...]

My Favorite City


It’s no secret that I love to travel. The thrill of exploring a new city. Being completely out of my element. Experiencing things that seem so familiar yet completely different at exactly the same time. I just can’t get enough of it. If I could, I would try to visit a new city twice a [...]

Chocolate Cream Cheese Frosting


I’m one of those people who can easily spend an hour wandering around Target. The brightly colored home goods beg me to browse through its section. I usually shop for clothes at thrift stores but the women’s clearance rack always needs to be checked because you never know what you might find. And then there’s [...]

How To Make Muffin Tin Pancakes

I love breakfast food. I can easily eat eggs for breakfast or dinner, and I am happy as a clam.  My kids are the same way about pancakes. They will eat them any time I take them to IHOP my husband makes them. When I read Anissa’s post, How to Make a Puff Pancake That Will Get [...]

Double Cheese and Pepperoni Grilled Cheese

Double Cheese and Pepperoni Grilled cheese

Fun Facts… April is National Grilled Cheese Month! April 12 was officially Grilled Cheese Day! Where was I the evening of the 12th? Who knows. I don’t even know what day of the week the 12th was. However, if it was a weekday, chances are pretty good that I was leaving the office late, then [...]

Maple Glazed Shortbread Cookies with Bacon Sprinkles


Bacon. We all love it. Well, unless you’re a vegan, vegetarian, or just abstain from pork products of any kind due to religious beliefs. I think it’s fair to say that the majority of meat eaters enjoy consuming this salty, slightly fatty, could-potentially-be-used-as-currency food. Whether it’s smoked (bacon), unsmoked (pancetta), candied, or deep fried, we [...]

I Can’t Quit You Pawuhluh


You win Pawuhluh Deeyun. I can’t quit you. You’re a fixture on my beloved Food Network and though I’ve tried to protest since your Type II Diabetes announcement, there you are, making sauce with two sticks o’ butter and your Santa Claus doppleganger hubby, smoochin’ over a steamin’ skillet o’ bacon grease, biscuit gravy runnin’ [...]

Dear Chocolate, Are you sitting down? I think you need to sit down for this. Let me just cut to the chase and say it: we need to take a break. And by break I mean I’m packing your bags and shipping you out. It’s been swell and all but this whole relationship just doesn’t [...]
