School starts tomorrow. I’ve been going a bit crazy for the last month or so trying to get things done before school starts. Cleaning the house, cooking as much as possible, sleeping. Once school starts life is going to get a bit full. I won’t have a lot of time to do those things that […]
So, this post is actually from last weekend. I started on it and another, but was so busy last weekend that I never had the opportunity to finish them. And I really wanted to share this post because it’s about Steve’s pesto, which was so delicious. So delicious. Last Sunday I got a special treat. […]
Every weekend I make a salad to eat off of throughout the week. I gives me a chance to be creative in the kitchen, use up leftover produce and also gives me something healthy and fulfilling to eat for lunch during the week. The point of this post is not so much the recipe, but […]
I asked my boyfriend for some text because he was strutting around after I used some text in another blog post. He happily obliged me. He spoils me rotten:

Combine exhausted after a long day and haven’t been to the grocery store in awhile, and chances are there’s going to be a struggle when it comes to figuring out what’s for dinner. Well, that’s where I was at today when I got home from work. I had next to nothing in the way of […]
All I can say is YUM! This turned out so well that I might make more after Thanksgiving just to have around. I bet it would be great in oatmeal, on ice cream and definitely on biscuits. My cranberry sauce memories all come from my Aunt Dixie. She’s probably reading this, so I hope I […]
I often make salads like this. I take a few ingredients I have in the fridge, mix them together and pack them, along with some salad greens, for my work-day lunch. This particular salad is destined to become a pasta salad, but could be happily enjoyed as is. The reason I make salads like this […]
