With all the malarkey swirling around the Internet + TV these days, I thought it would be nice if we could share some of the non-malarkey-type things that go on – AKA spread the good, not the bad. Here are a few things I’ve seen that have warmed the corners of my little heart lately.

Friday Fall Favorites

Pumpkin patches + adorable kids – is there anything better? I think not. Definitely not. Corey’s school puts on the most adorable pumpkin patch every year with themed pumpkin displays, a slide made out of hay, and even a bicycle ride. It’s adorable! Just look at that sweaty little man trying to pick up all

Red Beans + Rice & A Little Food for the Soul

red beans and rice

I have a confession: I’m pretty sure I’m deep-down a Louisiana native. Not sure how it happened, but I’m pretty sure I was transported or kidnapped or something. Maybe I lived there and worked in some rich guy’s kitchen in a former life. Either way, I love me some Creole cookin’. Also, every time I

Life Lately

We’ve kept it pretty low key the past week plus since this poor guy has had a tummy virus. Obviously, it’s not getting in the way of his mood or his appetite, though! I sure do love dem cheekies! Also… no one mentioned “stool samples” whenever I signed up to be a Mama. Gross. I’m

Hellloooooooo October and all things spooky, pumpkiny, and ghouly! I love this time of year so much I can’t even handle. I literally decorate our house differently every month between August and December. I’m getting more obsessed every year. Sorry, not sorry. I bought a ton of stuff at the end of last year’s Halloween

Chicken with Cream of Mushroom + Worcestershire and Scenes from the Weekend

I’ve posted this recipe before, but I had to share it again because it’s one of our go-to dinners when we’re hungry but don’t wanna cook (like last Saturday night). This was one of my Daddy’s favorite things to throw together on a weeknight after work and school. I love how food memories are some

UBiome – A Gut Study

uBiome testimonial

There’s no other way to say it: I had my poop analyzed. Thaaaaaaat’s right. My poop. Or really, my gut.┬áMy GI-physician-of-a-Grandpa is smiling down at me right now. You see, my family has a horrible history of colon cancer (both my dad + grandpa had it) and Irritable Bowel Syndrome. Both things relating to my

Salsa-Crazy Chicken Bowls

These little bowls of yummy are so simple to make, I really shouldn’t even call this a recipe. But I’m going to anyways, so booyah. I love a weeknight dinner that’s healthy + easy, but that can also be customized by each person chowing down (chili, tacos, pulled pork sandwiches, etc.). This little gem is
