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…

Pumpkin Carrot Canine Birthday Cake

We wanted to do something special for our puppy’s first birthday.  My daughter came up with idea for baking her a birthday cake. The nice thing about Golden Retrievers is that they are not picky eaters... at least ours isn’t.  She’s been know to scarf down rocks, tree bark, and swim goggles,…

Bringing Some Fun to Distance Learning

We are heading into our sixth month of distance learning.  Needless to say, we've had our share of ups and downs, but we feel like we are finally finding our groove.   Getting settled into a routine has its advantages, but sometimes you still need a break from that feeling…

Bats in the Belfry

Seeing how “batty” 2020 has been, it seems only fitting to fill our home with bats this Halloween.  I used to cut my own bats out of foam paper sheets, but I saw you can buy like 60 of these little blood-suckers on amazon for under 10 bucks.   I traded in my…

Easy Old Fashioned Apple Crisp

Apple crisp is one of those desserts that seems to signal the start of fall.  I can't think of a better aroma coming from the oven that says, "autumn has arrived!"  We are lucky enough to have an apple tree that produces an abundance of apples each year.  Apple crisp…

Holding on to the Magic

Parenthood is a never ending series of firsts — the first time you snuggle your newborn, your baby’s first steps, the first day of school. Parenthood is also a never ending series of lasts — the moment they stop crawling into bed with you, the last time you rock them to…

Yep, I am a Doomscroller

Can we all agree that everything just kind of sucks right now?  Seriously. There seems to be no good answers for anything at the moment. I learned a new term yesterday.  Doomscroller.  Apparently I’ve been one over last few months. Here is how Miriam-Webster defines it: “Doomscrolling and doomsurfing are new terms…

There’s No Room for Mom Guilt Right Now

I am burnt out.  There, I’ve said it. I am burnt out, and on top of that I feel guilty for feeling burnt out.  Summer was supposed to be our break, a time to recharge, relax, and maybe take a vacation before the chaos of the school year starts up…
