What Happened

February 28, 2011

A quick note:  this post is in no way complete, but it’s going to be all I can emotionally put out there in this very moment.  This blog is about my love of food, but I’ve always tried to document my life on it as well.  If you have questions feel free to email me […]

Comfort

February 27, 2011

Last night’s dinner was perfect.   Perfect I tell you. Pasta with homemade meat sauce (recipe to come…still needs to be perfected), cheesy garlic bread, and chocolate chip cookies.  Reminds me of dinner when I was younger (minus the salad – I just didn’t feel like going to the store), sitting with my family around […]

Pain

February 24, 2011

Thank you guys so much for being so loving even without specifics.  I just never knew my heart could hurt this much, but even through the pain I can see God’s love being poured out through our family, our friends, and from you.  I’m just posting these songs because I love them and they are […]

My New Favorite Snack

February 21, 2011

I have a confession:  I don’t actually like granola. There, I said it.  I can make it, and boy do I love giving it as gifts…but when it comes to actually enjoying it?  Not really my thing. That being said, when I was offered some samples of Love Grown granola from the company I wasn’t […]

Classic

February 21, 2011

Bread.  There’s just something about that doughy, yeasty, soft ambrosia that makes my heart sing.  I like it all ways…just cutting a slice straight from the source, toasting it, or even just taking a bite out of a loaf.   OK – I’ve never actually done that last one.  Something about it not being socially […]

Cream Cheese Banana Bread

February 18, 2011

Yesterday I was sitting there wondering what to make.  I knew it had to be something good and something with bananas, what with the 3 overly ripe beauties sitting on my counter. Not only that, I also had a craving for banana bread but had some cream cheese in the fridge to use up.  Suddenly […]

I don’t know about y’all, but I’m dreaming of faraway tropical places, bathing in sunshine, summertime BBQs, and sundresses. But mostly faraway, tropical places.  Please and thank you.
