Easiest Dinner Ever

November 30, 2010

All I have to say right now is THANK GOODNESS for Foodbuzz and Hickory Farms because after our Thanksgiving festivities were said and done and there was no food to be found in the house we had the easiest dinner known to man. As a member of the Foodbuzz Tastemaker Program I was lucky enough […]

Me Against the Christmas Tree

November 30, 2010

Beautiful and amazing Ashley is on Faces of Beauty today!   First things first I feel the need to get this off my chest:  I’m addicted to caffeine.  I’m the reason Starbucks has massive sizes for coffee, I’m the reason the vending machine runs out of Diet Coke in the breakroom when I need a […]

The Lost Girls

November 29, 2010

Have I ever mentioned that I love reading? I do…it’s one of the things that brings me true joy in life…right up there with butter, bacon, cheese, and baking with butter, bacon, and cheese. Oh, and sugar.  Don’t want to forget that one. I’ve recently started to carve out time in my crazy hectic schedule […]

The Pie Crust

November 29, 2010

There’s a fun reminder on Faces of Beauty today! I’m throwing this out there, but don’t judge him on this alone:  Nate doesn’t actually like pumpkin pie.  At all.  From what I can tell it’s a texture thing, but bless his big heart he just can’t stand it! Pecan pie though?  It’s a staple for […]

Beware the Exploding Apples

November 28, 2010

I had big dreams for this dish….BIG DREAMS!  I even carefully measured out every ingredient, painstakingly and thoughtfully deciding which spices and fillers I wanted in there.  I cored the apples perfectly, making them smooth and round and perfect for stuffing.  I hand-picked the appropriate sized baking dish, one that would fit all the apples […]

One of the things I love most about holidays and vacations is the ability to go eat breakfast at fun, local, CUTE places around town.  Since Nate and I were lucky enough to have the day off yesterday we decided to try out The Huckleberry in downtown Louisville, a cute little bakery and shop that […]

The Table

November 26, 2010

There’s just something about the Thanksgiving table that’s almost sacred…it just HAS to be pretty!  I love the clear glass look…add some candles and you’ve got the most gorgeous light! See that fireplace in the background?  It’s painted a gold metallic with some sort stenciling…but I want that to change.  What would you do to […]

Sweet Rum Pecan Glaze

November 26, 2010

‘Tis the season for pecans in this girl’s world!  I remember growing up (and to this day) my parents have always picked up pecans around our neighborhood and taken the nuts to be shelled during the fall.  Besides the fact that pecans have been a favorite nut of my family for generations I actually don’t […]

Thankfulness

November 25, 2010

Words cannot even begin to express how thankful I am for my life.  Sure, there are ups and downs, but this incredible journey that I’ve been blessed with is worth the ride.   I have the most wonderful parents and little sister who raised me with love, patience, joy, humbleness, and grace.  They are the […]

Butternut Squash Dip 2 Ways

November 24, 2010

Amazing Elizabeth is on Faces of Beauty today!   I’m back with the promised recipe that caused me to completely mutilate the roof of my mouth with hot, HOT, HOT onions and not even care about the consequences.  And since I know we could all use more burned mouths around the holidays, I knew I […]
