Tropical White Chocolate Bark

October 31, 2011

Around this time last year I was preparing to go on a mystery trip. A mystery trip to Kauai that is!  We were so excited to be going somewhere new, to be traveling partway across the world, and to escape the crazy season at work for a bit.  It was glorious.  Looking back though it’s […]

The Waffle House Story

October 28, 2011

Have you ever been to a Waffle House before? [source] It’s basically got the best waffles you’ll ever have.  Now I know everyone says that…they come up with a fantastic recipe – and no doubt it’s fantastic – and tout it as the be-all end-all of waffles.  This wouldn’t be blogging if you didn’t claim […]

22 Weeks

October 27, 2011

22 weeks.   22 weeks of guessing and thinking and praying and crying and having some of the craziest dreams known to man. Ah yes the dreams.  No one ever told me the vivid craziness that would ensue at night when I closed my eyes and the wacky, completely bizarre stories that I would awaken […]

Puff Pastry Apple-Apricot Tarts

October 27, 2011

Let’s talk easy holiday desserts. I am a big BIG fan of holiday baking.  I love sharing goodies with friends and family.  It gives me a thrill to try new recipes, master old ones, and eat all the ones in between.   But on the big day?  For Thanksgiving or Christmas dessert?  Well, truthfully I’ve […]

Too Many Books Too Little Time

October 25, 2011

I have a ton of baby books that I have yet to read…and in case you guys didn’t see the panic-stricken posts from last week, we’re over halfway through this pregnancy.   YIKES. I know that reading can’t completely prepare you for being a mommy, but I do like to go into things prepared.  And […]

How to Cut a Grapefruit

October 25, 2011

Hi, my name is Heather and I’m going to tell you how to cut a grapefruit so you can eat it without a grapefruit spoon.   Hi Heather. Growing up we always had a side of grapefruit with breakfast, which for me was usually a bagel with butter and maybe some honey.  Maybe.  My tastes […]

How to Roast a Whole Spaghetti Squash

October 24, 2011

This weekend I didn’t cook a single thing. Nope, not one!  This weekend we were in Dallas shooting a wedding (which was FANTASTIC by the way!  So organized…love it!) and the only time I entered a kitchen was to eat a couple of Skittles and refill my water.  It was nice to take a break, […]

I am Pregnant, I am Beautiful

October 21, 2011

There are a lot of things that I could nit-pick about this picture and say that my outfit is crappy, I’m smiling weird, iPhone photos are awkward, or I just look funny. But the reality is that there is a little baby boy growing in my belly and I could care less about the outfit, […]

Breeseos

October 21, 2011

Say WHAT?! Get ready to have your mind blown.  Seriously.  These aren’t made by combining chopped chocolate and cream and other fantastical ingredients.  No, my friends, these are made with brownie mix and Oreo cookies and miniature Reeses cups.  They are made with lots of sugar and lots of love.  And as stated before, they […]
