Tiny Baking with my Tiny Chef

There are those gifts that end up getting played with once and are never to be seen from again.  Then there are the ones that keep popping up and making appearances all throughout the year.  When my daughter asked for a Tiny Baking kit for Christmas, I assumed it would…

Greek Lemon Rice Soup

Greek lemon rice soup, also known as Avgolemono, is one of those dishes that reminds me of home.  The funny part about this is that my family never actually made the soup, nor are we Greek.  Lemon Rice soup is a staple dish at almost all of the Greek restaurants…

Working on Me

Did you jump into 2021 wide eyed, bushy tailed, and excited to tackle the new year with a whole set of resolutions?  Or, like me, did you roll into 2021 a bit disheveled, disoriented, and wondering where the heck the holidays went? I did, excitedly, have a few “let’s do…

Letting It Go

Sometimes it is hard to "let it go!" This year we’ve all had to learn to let go of things -- it hasn’t always been easy.  I’m the type where once I have a plan or an idea of how things are supposed to be locked into my brain, it’s hard…

Pecan English Toffee

As  a child I have fond memories my Grandpa making the most delicious toffees and caramels the world has ever known. He did this every Christmas, and it is a memory I will cherish always. I still remember the many hours he put into making them, continually stirring the candy,…

Popcorn Turkey Dressing

This recipe was given to me years ago from my great Aunt Eulah and has been an absolute family favorite.  If you are looking for a dressing recipe that the kids will beg you to make year after year, this is it.  Be sure to read all the ingredients and…

Caving into Caveman Mode

Is anyone else’s family looking and feeling more like a boorish group of cave dwellers than a modern day family these days? After nearly nine months together in our house, I am starting to learn we’ve all become a little more wild in our ways… a bit more neanderthal like…

My Favorite Matching Holiday Pajamas

Is it ever too early to start shopping for matching Holiday jammies? I don’t think so. If you've tried to buy them in the past you know that the good ones sell out quickly. Even though I buy them early we don't open our pajamas until Christmas Eve.  They are…
