I’ve been waiting until the light was just right to take a picture of our entryway fall deco. I LOVE this little nook and the chance to decorate a little something extra that people can see when they first walk into our home. I also forgot to take a quick pic of the little bit

Hurricane Harvey is here! Well, technically not here where we are, but in Texas anyway. We’ve been spared the bad stuff for now, but we’re getting ready for flooding and some heavy winds. Until then… we’re just hanging out and playing with the big boy and cookin’ some yummy stuff. Jon Boy actually helped me

I love me some Pioneer Woman. Her cookbook,Β Dinnertime, is one of my all-time faves! Everything I’ve made from her easy-to-read book has been delicious + simple + a hit with the fam. I made her Chicken in Mustard Cream Sauce on Thursday as we were panicking + getting ready for Hurricane Harvey. It takes less

Is it fall yet? I mean for real. I’m ready for leggings, tunics, Bath and Body Works candles, and comfort food. Oh wait. I’m kind of workin’ all those things already. Sorry, not sorry. But really, c’mon fall. It’s friggin’ hot. I made this somewhat fancy pot roast on Tuesday, and boy did it not

Chicken + Dumplings & A Little Life Lately

chicken and dumplings

If you’re like me, when you hear Chicken + Dumplings, you think of the elementary cafeteria and the ‘mystery’ that would be slopped onto your plate and called Chicken + Dumplings. I had some friends who LIVED for Chicken + Dumpling Day. I was NOT one of those people. I dreaded that day. The soggy

Spicy Poblano Burgers + Pickled Red Onions + Chipotle Cream

These. Burgers. Will. Blow. Your. Mind. First off… I mean how friggin’ cute can a burger get I ask you? One reason they’re one of my faves is because you can do basically everything minus the grilling ahead of time. The red onions can be made up to a week ahead [and go great with

#1 Thought this Thursday: Be a parent. Enough said. #2 Thought for Thursday: I never want to appear that I think I’m even remotely perfect. I’ve been reading tons and tons of blogs + social media about people who genuinely think they’ve found the key to life + happiness + the perfect eye cream that

Better than Olive Garden’s Pasta e Fagioli

pasta e fagioli

I have so many great memories of going to Olive Garden after church with my girl friends in middle and high school. Sometimes one of our church sponsors would join us, too. We’d eat ridiculous amounts of breadsticks with Alfredo sauce [wish I could still do that w/o gaining 438 lbs.]. We’d laugh way too

Slow Cooker Caribbean Pork

Okay, I have to be honest. I can NEVER remember how to spell Caribbean. I actually just misspelled it trying to type it just then. GUH! So, needless to say, writing this recipe was tough. One day, maybe I’ll remember. Until then… thank you, spell check. The flavors in this dish are perfectly balanced: citrus
