Gingered Pork – A Taste of Home Recipe

August 30, 2012

When it comes to cookbooks I have 3 categories: Cookbooks that I like to look through; Cookbooks that I like to actually cook from; Cookbooks that I like to look through AND actually cook from. Y’all know the me’s of this world – the cookbook hoarders with every book there is out there, only to […]

Liquid Snack

August 29, 2012

I just have to share this with you guys really quickly.  See, it doesn’t need a lot of words or even a great picture (clearly).  All you need to know is that this is one delicious smoothie, it’s under 250 calories (if you track that), and more than anything it’s a great and filling way […]

Mango Sweet and Sour Mix for Margaritas

August 29, 2012

Alrighty y’all, let’s talk margaritas shall we? Besides the obvious, “I love margaritas, they’re the token drink of summer, best way to ingest tequila, and there’s a million different ways to make the best one” remarks I could make, I just need you to know this:  I love me a good margarita.  I don’t have […]

Let me ask you this:  what better to post on a Monday morning than a recipe that allows you to drink more coffee? That’s what I thought.  This really could not come at a more appropriate time if you ask me.  Weekends are awesome, great, beautiful and fantastic, but for some reason this past weekend […]

Weeknight Spinach, Mushroom and Turkey Lasagna

August 23, 2012

This lasagna was made in pure we-need-something-to-eat-tonight innocence.  It was unassuming and simple to make, and I honestly didn’t have any intentions of blogging about it.   And then I tasted it. Fireworks went off on my palate.  I craved eating the entire pan after just the first bite.   Nate and I didn’t even […]

The Final Insanity Review

August 22, 2012

I suppose I can’t really call this a “final” review since there weren’t any previous reviews, but just go with me on it.  I’m a little tired due to someone deciding to cry almost literally all night long…let’s just say his name starts with a “W” and rhymes with “Beston.”   Ahem.

And just like that wouldn’t you know that Summer is no longer the “it” season and all things Fall are taking over my life, my thoughts, my wardrobe and my conversation choices.   Fall is: The season of back-to-school supplies shopping, where even though I’m no longer in school I still stare dreamily at the […]
