I’m Alive and Kicking- Really!

Good grief, it's been almost a year. A year!! SO MUCH has happened in that year, and I wasn't sure if I would ever get to come back. I've wanted to, but it just hasn't been in the cards until now. I wasn't sure if anyone would even care at this point if I came back. But … Continue reading I’m Alive and Kicking- Really!

Easy Printing… For Real This Time

So after being informed by my BFF that the print feature I added awhile back actually prints the entire blog post instead of only the recipe like I wanted it to, I have (with a little help from a more experienced blogger) figured out how to make only the recipe in each post printable. Yay! … Continue reading Easy Printing… For Real This Time

Summer Sucks XIV: More So Than I Imagined- Praise God It’s Over

As I write this, the people of my hometown are beginning the long road to rebuilding their lives after a catastrophic flood.

Thankfully … Continue reading Summer Sucks XIV: More So Than I Imagined- Praise God It’s Over

I started the Summer Sucks Series as a way to get through what was promising to be an incredibly hot and miserable summer. It was a way to continue blogging like I wanted to but also to … Continue reading Summer Sucks XII: Something “Frosty” to Cool You Off- Frozen Hot Chocolate

Summer Sucks IX: Bringing Back a Classic- (Banana) Pudding Pops

I bought something recently that I’d been wanting to buy for several years now and kept putting off: popsicle molds. I've seen SO many recipes in various places for popsicles and said “Oh I wish I had popsicle molds- that would be so tasty and fun!” But every time I had the extra bit of … Continue reading Summer Sucks IX: Bringing Back a Classic- (Banana) Pudding Pops

Summer Sucks VIII: Something… Different- Fire Grilled Steak Tacos with Pineapple Salsa

I have a confession to make: I hate grilling with commercial charcoal. No matter what I do I can't keep it lit. I've tried tricks & tips from numerous sources and none of them work for me. And I hate the smell of burning charcoal. It's so... harsh. And unnatural. When I grill with commercial … Continue reading Summer Sucks VIII: Something… Different- Fire Grilled Steak Tacos with Pineapple Salsa
