Thanksgiving recap

We had so much great food for Thanksgiving. I was hoping for a large amount of leftovers, but came away with a modest amount- and they were gone by day #2. I miss having pie around, so I am making more pumpkin pie. Sorry about the blur, but it was the first time my brother […]

Felt Flower Wreath- inspired by fall

I found 3 fall inspired wreaths and desperately needed a craft day. After being sick and the book tour- I needed a break to clear my head, and the thought of involving felt, a glue gun, and some buttons, sounded like the best kind of therapy. So I went to work. I came up with […]

I saw this site mentioned by the Pioneer Woman- a.k.a. Ree several weeks ago. I have to admit that I am now hooked. It’s vintage meets modern. From shoes to scarves to earrings, to dresses, I’ve had a hard time NOT purchasing everything I see. Go visit ShopRuche.com and be sure to look at their […]

Roasted Tomato Soup

This recipe is so simple, it should be illegal. I made it in less than 15 minutes. Start to finish. That’s the kind of lunch or dinner I like. You can eat it like this… Or if you are a dipper like me, you can dip your garlic toast. Croutons would be tasty on top […]

I love playing with my adorable nieces. It was a delight- even when they came and woke me up before 7 am each morning! Here’s me and Maggie Fetchner- who wrote the book Growing Up Gracie at our signing at The Brass Plates…. I would have fixed my sweater, it looks horrible- but I didn’t […]

The Spice project.

I am tired of searching through a shoebox of spices to find what I want. It’s awkward and taking up so much space in my pantry. I don’t necessarily care for spice racks, as they clutter my counter, and I need all the space I can get when I bake. So, I found these cute […]

Twice Baked Butternut Squash

Oh. My. Goodness. This recipe was better than I thought- it’s what I will be making to share for Thanksgiving this year. And I might make it all the time. I harvested 14 butternut squash out of one plant in my garden this year. A random fact: I had less than 10 zucchini- but that […]
