Sneak Peek!


Earlier I complained about having some nasal congestion, sounding screechingly similar to Janis, from Friends. One whiff of this lovely mess and that problem all but disappeared. Poor Janis. I loved her. That probably explains a lot, doesn’t it? Any ideas?! The final post on this dish is a big surprise! It will be a […]

Mortar + Pestle = Giddy Pants


Look at this baby. Just look at it. My dad bought this mortar and pestle for me over the labor day weekend. It was rather humorous, actually. (cue Saved By the Bell edge fade to indicate memory) We’re all sitting around the breakfast table, sipping coffee and flipping through the paper, starting to churn on […]

Grilled Chicken with Green Beans and Potatoes


As you know, we were welcomed home yesterday to a Mount Everest-sized pile of green beans and jalapeno peppers.

Here she is in the same high chair that my sister and I were raised with. Seriously, I have to resist the urge to […]

A Taste of Breckon


Yesterday my mom, sister, Breckon and I took a little girl’s road trip to south Arkansas, to visit my sick Memaw. We might have giggled the entire way there and back. We might have annoyed my sister to near death. We might have eaten fast food twice in one day. We might have eaten chocolate […]

Breakfast with Breckon


This is my sweet munchkin, pigeon darling, beebee doll, giggle box, angel face, almond-eyed, dooty booty, pumpkin pooty, baby niece, Breckon. We’re having breakfast. I almost got so excited sitting next to her that I forgot about my eggs and starting eating her nose off. Danger zone, I tell you.

Fiesta Chicken and Rice Bake


Imma bout to jump in the car and skiddly daddle south, but before I do, I have to share this dish with you. This is another pantry purge meal, with frozen chicken breasts, wild rice, a few peppers from the garden and a hodgepodge of molding vegetables from the fridge. Oh you guys, the vegetables […]
