Thanks for being patient with me and my lack of posts as of late. I had a lot of momentum going and then life happened. Does anyone else have some life happening currently? If you don’t, I’m certainly happy to share because I have more than enough to go around! Anyways, back to the reason… Continue reading Revamping Toaster Strudels
Cooking fresh corn doesn’t have to be difficult. Here’s the easiest way to prepare delicious seasonal corn!
Truth be told, I’m not a huge soda person. It’s very rare that I crave a Coke or Mountain Dew, but I do enjoy bubbly drinks on occasion – typically my bubbly beverage of choice is either an Izze or Ginger Ale (Ginger Beer is better but it’s hard to find). Recently, a friend of mine was struggling with… Continue reading Homemade Ginger Ale
Once upon a time, someone told me that “everyone likes Margaritas.” I believed that until I tried one for the first time and had to painfully choke it down.

I have quite the line-up planned, but for now… let’s talk about cake. Part of why I wanted to stat this blog is because… Continue reading Celebrations Call for Cake
I recently took a vacation (yes, me. The work-aholic. I took a vacation) and went to Charleston with some other ladies to celebrate our friend Liz’s upcoming wedding. Let’s call it a Bachelorette party. The first night we were there we agreed ahead of time to all bring easy appetizers that wouldn’t require much prep… Continue reading No More Boring Veggie Trays
It’s been a really long time, guys. And it’s not just been a long time since my last post – it’s been a long time since I really invested in my cooking. With moving and all the craziness, our eating habits got way off track and down right bad – and when I say ‘bad’,… Continue reading Orange you happy?
