Roasted Radish & Fresh Corn Salad

August 5, 2014

I’m a sucker for a really great summer salad. The kind that goes with every kind of meal – perfect roasted chicken, grilled ribeye steaks, hot dogs or a baked potato. I feel like a lot of times a salad like that can be hard to find, a chameleon in the side dish world. That’s […]

Some Sweet Offers

August 4, 2014

I don’t know about you guys, but I’m trying to be smarter with our money.  As long-time Amex customers we’ve been really happy with the level of service and the ease of transactions, especially with the rewards program and how well it fits into our life. It initially started out as a way for us […]

A Workout Gear Switch-Up

August 1, 2014

Back in college one of my friends had this amazing and new-to-me concept when it came to clothes: she would purchase something a size up so that it felt too big (because it was) but also because she felt like it made other people think she was teeny (she was). Because that was a time […]

Inspired Week

July 31, 2014

Messy Motherhood…man oh man has it been a messy week for me. The kind that makes me wonder how on earth God thought trusting me with such an awesome child was a good idea. So thankful for simple reminders from my favorite bloggers!   Sort of in that same vein, I loved this piece from […]

July 30, 2014

As I type this there are currently birds feasting on my remaining green tomatoes, essentially killing all of my hard work and progress with gardening this summer. Those little guys were never my favorite animal anyway, but now they’ve officially made the list. I feel like Zooey Deschanel (whose name I just had to Google […]

Greek Roasted Garlic Quinoa Lettuce Burgers

July 28, 2014

When it comes to eating well, I’m of the mindset that fresh is usually best, but the reality is that I’m a busy mom who just wants to eat well and feed her family well too. That means that I won’t always be willing and able to create every part of every meal from scratch, […]

A 5-Minute Vacation

July 26, 2014

Growing up we took vacations every break we had from school. Part of the fun was just the simple anticipation of what adventures were to come, what I should pack in my over-the-seat storage thingy (yes, that’s the official name), and of course what cassette tapes (later CDs) would fit in order to properly jam […]

Oven-Roasted Paprika Okra

July 25, 2014

“I only like okra if it’s fried.” A statement I know well, mainly because it happens to have been uttered from the lips of this really good-looking guy I’m married to.   It was uttered at the farmer’s market, every time we opened the fridge door and saw the bag of okra, and during the […]

Inspired Week

July 24, 2014

These French burgers and a new French fry method that is PURE GENIUS.   I love looking at old photos and trying to picture what life was like before I ever existed. These old photos show that nothing much has changed in motherhood when you get down to the lovely, snuggle-inducing, crying-happy-tears (and slightly awkward/embarrassing) […]

Summer Squash Goat Cheese Galette

July 23, 2014

Last week I was a great big tease and posted this picture on my Instagram account, and now I’m here to deliver. Y’all, have you ever heard of or tried a galette before? It’s basically a free-form pie (although this one is not with a buckwheat crust), and can be sweet or savory. Seeing as […]
