Hearty Italian Meat Sauce

I'm mostly posting this recipe because my mother's been begging for it...And I'm a slacker....And I have good intentions... I really do! But then I've been getting home from work exhausted, force myself out for a run, make dinner and crash! So, sorry mom! I'll do better this time. I promise! :) I made this with her when she came for a visit for 24 hours back in November. She...

Memories

There is something about food that always seems to bring up memories. It's probably one of the things I like best about food. Lots of people know me by my love for cooking, my love for food (not sure that's a good thing! ;)), and being the one who always wants to try a new recipe. But really, at the heart of the matter, I actually always go back to...

Salted Caramel Chocolate Pretzel Bark

It's been a really rough week!You know the theory that bad things come in threes... well they came in four's and fives this week.Life at work was insane! It wasn't just your typical, "Oh that was a really stressful week". No, it was pretty much terrible! Lots of things going on there, one of which include the word "restructuring", and it was really hard! Then my husband got in a...

Eggnog Sugar Cookies

I know I've said this before... but California has to be the best state ever. It's not even my home state - where I was born and raised. But it sure does feel like "home" now. Archie and I LOVE to explore, and one of our favorite ways is hiking. There are so many places to go hiking here. This past weekend we went hiking with our hiking buddies, Jeremiah...

Buffalo Chicken Grilled Blue Cheese

I love Buffalo Sauce! I like it on hot wings, Buffalo chicken pizza, in buffalo ranch chicken dip, just about anything. I'll find something to put it on. I also like to eat hot wings - but I'm a HUGE wuss. I love the buffalo wing flavor, but I have to eat it in mild form, or else my nose starts running, my eyes are watering, and I start panting...

Salted Caramel Corn

Whew.... is it really only Tuesday?? It feels like it should be at least Thursday.... I feel like I'm recuperating from last week, when Archie and I had something going on EVERY single night of the week. How do we let our schedules get that way? We keep saying we're going to slow down, and then we turn around and we have something booked for all week. This week we...

It’s Officially Summer Around Here

Summer has officially hit in California. And... it's HOT! Well, we've had days of heat at least... for California that is. Nothing compared to my hometown counterpart of Charleston, SC where the temperatures have been record high. Can't say I miss that at all. But the difference.... the BIG difference - is that almost everyone in Charleston has an air conditioner in their house. Sweet, lovely, beautiful air conditioning. Oh,...

Weekend Update

Hi there, Happy Monday! What did you do for your weekend? Hopefully you got to rest, relax, and maybe do something a little fun. I got to do something AMAZING! A once in a lifetime opportunity! We went to see Hillsong United live! It was awesome, amazing, and such an inspiration. I know this picture doesn't even do close to justice of what it was like, but here's a little...

Merry Christmas and One Last Christmas Recipe

Merry Christmas Eve! It is such a joyous time! Besides all of the fun, laughter, decorating, presents, shopping, singing, and cooking/baking - it is the season of our Savior's birth! I am so thankful for the gift of God's son who came as a baby in a simple manger to save the world from our sin! We have so much to be thankful for! If you forgot to plan something...

A Vacation for the Soul

I'm a "have a few close friends" kind of girl.I think it's just my personality. My husband is the type of guy who jokes about going into a group of people and yelling out "who wants to be my friend", said with a jovial tone of voice, as in almost mocking anyone who wouldn't want to befriend him. I've somewhat tried this approach, but it ends up in me inviting...
