Recipe Redux – Potato Rolls

This month’s Recipe Redux theme, in honor of Thanksgiving, is a food memory for which we are thankful and then a healthy “redo” of that recipe. This was pretty easy for me to come up with an idea as one memory and food jumps out at me this time of year. My family has always made potato rolls […]

Still Time for Summer Fun in the Kitchen

Here in Georgia, school is starting back in 3 short weeks. It is hard to believe school is so close, which makes it feel like the end of summer is at hand, which it clearly isn’t. There is still plenty of time for summer adventures, and of course I love those that involve the kitchen. These […]

Menu Plan Monday – July 7

I’m back from a 2-week hiatus! I was at a conference in New Orleans, LA and then on vacation with my family. I had intended to still get a post or 2 up, but of course a crazy schedule and other events prevented that from happening. I was so excited to go back to New Orleans […]

Happy Memorial Day! It is hard to adequately put into words the gratitude I feel for those who have sacrificed so much to protect our country. Last week was a whirlwind.

Roasted Carrot Souffle and Pompeian Grapeseed Oil Review

Disclosure: I received a free bottle of Pompeian Grapeseed Oil to test. All thoughts and opinions are my own.  Cooking spray is one of my must-haves in the kitchen. I use it almost daily for a variety of tasks in the kitchen from cooking eggs, greasing baking dishes to a quick spritz on a measuring […]

Menu Plan Monday – December 2

Happy Monday! A bit of a late start today. Playing lots of catch up after taking off most of last week to be with my family. We had a wonderful and fairly laid back Thanksgiving. I started the morning off with a chilly 5K. My husband and children were supposed to do it with me, […]

Menu Plan Monday – November 25

Happy Thanksgiving! I still can’t believe it is Thanksgiving this week. Where has this year gone? I know I say it all too often and it is rather cliche, but I need time to S-L-O-W   D-O-W-N! I am thankful to live close by family so that my children regularly see all of their aunts, […]
