May 31, 2011

Peonies. The only flowers we have ever had on our property. Sadly it’s loolong like that’s the case again this year… I swear I don’t have a black thumb!

Chocolate-Dipped Bacon

May 31, 2011

I didn’t invent this.  Which means you can’t blame me for showing you how easy it is. I mean, chocolate-dipped anything isn’t that hard as long as you use good chocolate.  And by good chocolate I mean most chocolate in general.   Ever since I saw the $4 double-bacon chocolate bar in a shop in […]

Sicky McSickerson

May 29, 2011

Once upon a time I had big plans for Memorial Day weekend.  You know, one of the few 3-day weekends I get a year. Alas, instead of the gardening, shopping, cleaning, and laying out in the sun-ing I had planned, I got food poisoning instead.  All I have to say is stay away from bad […]

Today is one of those days. One of those days where I didn’t have anything made to share.  Where I rushed around the house this morning and just decided to show you my new favorite breakfast recipe.  Where I have T-minus 10 minutes to shower and get out the door. Oops.   So, that being […]

It’s All Because of You

May 25, 2011

About 2 weeks ago beautiful Faces of Beauty reader Melissa left a comment saying she was glad to find out about the blog from All You Magazine.  Immediately I was intrigued and found out that Faces of Beauty is part of a feature about women who have learned to love themselves just as they are! […]

Browned Butter Brown Sugar Cookies with Lemon Buttercream

May 25, 2011

Have you ever browned butter before? Lord help me, I just might burn my tongue trying to lick the pan the next time I brown butter.  That nutty, buttery (duh), rich aroma is only slightly indicative of the massive amount of nutty, buttery, richness that will befall your tastebuds and I almost can’t stand it.  […]

These Guys

May 24, 2011

Oh these pups.  They’re going stir-crazy these days with the rain causing them to miss their favorite yet oh-so-muddy dog park. It’s almost worth the muddy paws, filthy carpet, and having to lug 100 lb Bunker up the stairs for a bath. Almost.
