A great no-fail roasted chicken recipe is the little black dress of the kitchen.  You keep it on standby for any occasion when you know you need to look fabulous.  Rosemary chicken is gorgeous (look at those roasted lemon slices—so fancy!) and delicious.  Put this on the table, and enjoy the oohs and ahhs from [ Click to continue Reading! ]

Frozen Mocha Brownie Bites

Frozen-Mocha-Brownie-Bites-5

First, promise me something:  Promise me that you will not hide these frozen mocha brownie bites from your husband.  Promise me that you won’t wrap them individually in plastic wrap and store them inside a bag of frozen asparagus in the back of the freezer.  Because that would be selfish.  And also, there’s a chance [ Click to continue Reading! ]

Strawberry Pretzel Parfaits

Strawberry-Pretzel-Parfait-2

This dish comes to you by way of my craving for something salty and sweet and my Southern heart, of course.  If you’ve never had strawberry pretzel salad in all of its Cool Whip glory, you haven’t lived.  Befriend a blue-haired lady at Church, offer to mow her lawn and she’ll make you a strawberry [ Click to continue Reading! ]

Earl Grey Tea Latte

Earl-Grey-Latte-2

Remember that Earl Grey tea latte? I can’t stop thinking about it either.  These tea lattes went from a once-a-week treat to a daily fix.  Times two.  I make 2 lattes some mornings.  I tell myself I’ll have just one and then switch back to green tea.  But, before I know it, my milk is [ Click to continue Reading! ]

What We’re Eating

Oat-Cakes

What do we eat on a daily basis? Are you curious? I’m endlessly fascinated by what y’all eat every day.  I read quite a few blogs where people document their daily meals.  And I love them.  So, I thought I’d share an overview of what we eat. Breakfast:  Twice a month, I bake a double or triple [ Click to continue Reading! ]

Mashed Potato Truffles

Mashed-Potato-Truffles-4

No, that’s not a typo.  I really used mashed potatoes to make truffles instead of heavy cream. And believe me when I say:  no one can tell the difference.  I served them to many discriminating house guests over the past month. I watched closely for a raised eyebrow, a slight frown, anything! to tell me that you can [ Click to continue Reading! ]

Bourbon Milk Punch

Bourbon-Milk-Punch-Dessert-For-Two3

Well, it seems Spring is going to take its sweet time arriving this year.  And I’m okay with that. We are still undecided if we are going to start a garden.  The truth is, when your day job is growing and harvesting plants, sometimes the last thing you want to do is take care of [ Click to continue Reading! ]

I have wedding photos for you.

Our photographer saw a moment of perfect light shining through the window, so she grabbed us to snap this quick shot. I love the glow!

You’re not going to read this paragraph; you’re just going to scroll straight down and hurry to get to the photos, so go on. I’ll wait.  You’ll be back after you look at all the photos. I made the executive decision to exclude my family from this public sharing. A wedding day is very personal. [ Click to continue Reading! ]
