Baked Sugar Cookies Peaches

July 19, 2011

Y’all, baked peaches are one of summer’s treasures. Now believe you me, I know exactly how hard it is to find perfectly ripe, juicy, not-too-mushy peaches.  In fact unless you live in Fredericksburg, Texas you probably have a hard time finding the perfect peach too.  And if you’re one of those lucky people who finds […]

Adventures in Health Products

July 18, 2011

A few weeks ago the fabulous Jenna at Swanson Health Products offered a chance to try some of the amazing foods and products from their site, and I was happy to oblige! I had already JUST purchased some more vitamins, so I didn’t end up getting anything like that from them, but I DID get: […]

The Ultimate Blackberry Limeade

July 18, 2011

There’s just something about summer that makes me crave limeades like no other part of the year. It’s a throw-back to a simpler time when you could actually sit outside at Sonic and sip said limeade slowly.  Where you didn’t have to drive off and suck it down before the next thing in your day, […]

Chocolate Chip Cookies for Two

July 14, 2011

I’m going to go ahead and call myself a hypocrite here. I know there was a time when I said that a bunch of smaller cookies were better than one or two larger cookies.  A couple of you politely disagreed and we moved on with our lives.  Until now.   Now I’m going to say […]

The Charm Cake

July 13, 2011

We were in Dallas this past weekend shooting the wedding of Brandon & Elizabeth, and I got to learn about a new tradition called a charm cake.  Basically it’s a bundt cake that has small charms attached to ribbon, all representing something in a marriage or in life, hidden in the middle.  On the wedding […]

Homemade Naan

July 13, 2011

I know I’ve waxed poetic in the past about how making bread is SO FUN and I just love doing it. That being said it also scares the bejeezus out of me.  I mean, most homemade breads need time to let the dough grow (scary!) and then you have to knead it and then you […]
