Crazy Easy Sausage Spirals

October 31, 2012

You guys. I really cannot even begin to describe how simple these are.  I had no intentions of blogging about this breakfast (hence the one photo), but I just feel that it would practically be a sin to not share this with y’all.   A few years ago we were actually here in Little Rock […]

Pumpkin Cupcakes for Two…or One

October 30, 2012

You guys.  You’d think I would have learned my lesson with making pumpkin stuff around here, right? Apparently not.  Apparently I jumped on the pumpkin train a little late and now I’m trying my hardest to make up for it.  Only there’s just me to eat it all – which would be fine if I […]

My Guys

October 29, 2012

This weekend I didn’t cook anything.  Nothing.  Zero.   Well, that’s sort of a lie.  I did make something amazing out of Jenny’s amazing book for our Friday night dinner.  Details on that soon.   But other than that I didn’t cook anything.  We took this weekend and we spent time together as a family.  […]

Big Puffy Pumpkin-Spiced Chocolate Chip Cookies

October 26, 2012

I’ll tell y’all one thing:  Nate is getting SERIOUSLY tired of the pumpkin-flavored bomb that went off at our house in the past couple of weeks.  The cinnamon, the ginger, the cardamom, the pumpkin.  It’s true: my handsome man is NOT a pumpkin fan.  It’s basically his only fault.   Me on the other hand?  […]

Oh coffee. Nectar of the gods. One of the things I look forward to most in the mornings (other than waking up next to my hot husband and snuggling my cutiepatootie baby). I mean really, it’s JUST.SO.GOOD. When I worked at Starbucks we had a couple of customers and baristas alike who would try and […]

Cherry Almond Oatmeal Breakfast Bars

October 24, 2012

When I was pregnant with Weston I would treat myself to two things from Whole Foods once a week: a massive hot bar box of Indian food (Nate doesn’t dig curry and I could eat it for days) and a massive – really, think size-of-your-face-massive – raspberry oatmeal bar.  Since it’s Whole Foods and you […]

Halloween Oreo Frozen Yogurt

October 23, 2012

OK here’s the deal:  I’m not going to pretend this is healthy, although it’s certainly healthier than full-fat ice cream.  I’m not going to pretend that it’s not just as delicious though.   You guys know me – when it comes to Halloween I’m not super involved.  I love handing out candy to kiddos who […]

Homemade Chai-Spiced Coffee

October 23, 2012

Let’s talk Trader Joe’s for a moment, shall we?  Am I the only person who has never ever ever lived near one of these fabulous stores?  I’ve been in them – recently even – but have never lived by one.  Which, if you ask my husband, is probably a good thing since I just don’t […]

Taking a Day

October 22, 2012

Last night I was on my way to the grocery store when I came around a bend in the road only to be see the night sky lit up in emergency vehicle lights.  It appeared that only moments before I hopped in my car this horribly tragic accident took place.  When I saw the cars […]

I remember when I was in college my roommates and I would head to the store and stock up on the essentials: toilet paper, chicken Ramen, coffee and Special K cereal.  I don’t know what it was, but Special K ended up being the only cereal we ever bought.  I like to think because it […]
