5 minute almond cake

Five minutes is about all the time I have to do anything these days with our busy life.  Time just flies by in chunks and before I know it another week, another month, and another year has gone by.  I can’t believe my sweet Baby Baker will be 6 months old this week.  I have […]

Lemon Orzo with Parsley

2015, I have high expectations for you.  Actually that is an inaccurate statement.  I have no “expectations” for 2015 or should try not to at least.  Expectations are the things that get you in trouble.  Truly.  A very wise, man of God told me once that you should never “expect” anything.  He was referencing relationships, but […]

As we approach the most glorious food holiday of the year (aka Thanksgiving), it’s time to get all of our dishes in order.  Cornbread doesn’t generally get an invitation to our dinner table, but my dad’s cornbread dressing sure does.  I’m kind of thinking that a sweet version over our usual savory version might be […]

Homemade Chili Seasoning

Homemade chili seasoning

I’m not sure if there is a perfect chili recipe out there.  I  kind of think that chili might be one of the most subjective dishes leaving it up to each person’s taste buds to determine your favorite chili.  I do know that mine has gone over pretty darn well over the years and I tend […]
