I love smoothies because they’re super easy to make! Step 1: Place foods in the blender. . . Step 2: Put the top on. . . Step 3: Press “pulse” a few times and then press a “blend” button (they all ultimately do the same thing) Below I’ve listed a few common ingredients used for […]
What do you do when you don’t have all the ingredients for something? Make up a recipe!!! I really wanted Alfredo pasta for dinner but didn’t have any sauce or ingredients to make the sauce. So I improvised. Thanks, Progresso! Like it? Share it!
Dear Readers: THANK YOU from the bottom of my heart for making 2012 a fabulous first year blogging about food. I have truly enjoyed sharing my recipes and cooking experiences with you all.

Using the Irish breakfast tea still in my mug from breakfast, I added 3 more ingredients in the following order to my glass: […]
Mmmmm. There’s nothing like the smell of fresh, homemade bread filling the air. Brings back memories of living at my home in Nashville, TN. Mom would make a huge loaf (almost 4 lbs, I bet!) of whole wheat bread about once a week. If it had JUST come out of the oven, my family would […]
I love Aldi. Never have I been able to buy $30 worth of groceries while getting so much food (1-2 weeks for Cobalt and I, depending on the week).
