Sweet Potato Skillet-22

Sweet Potato Breakfast Skillet

So for a blog with only a few recipes on it, I think sweet potatoes have made an appearance an absurd number of times (uh…here, here, and here).  I might have an unhealthy obsession with the vegetable.  So does my daughter, at her 9 month doctor’s appointment the doc told me she was turning orange…

Easy Classic Lasagna {with Homemade Sauce}

This classic lasagna recipe comes with a story, and it has been the bane of my existence for months.  Back in November I got the idea that I wanted to share a lasagna recipe with ya’ll.  Who doesn’t love lasagna!?  I had ideas flowing from all over.  I decided I would give you a White…

Guys It’s my second to last monthly update.  I can’t believe my baby is almost a year old.   Love that drool-covered chin. Sidenote, does anyone have any advice about controlling 1 year old hair, cause hers is wild and stringy and outta control.  …and fuhget about clips and headbands.  She kindly informed me that…

Cheesecake. Yum.  White Chocolate Raspberry Cheesecake with a thick buttery oreo crust.  Double Yum.   Seriously though.  I absolutely love cheesecake.  When I was a kid I didn’t really like cake (don’t worry, I’ve grown up and changed my ways.  Find evidence here.)  Anyway, I remember my mom getting creative with birthday items for me…

Bridget Kate 9 months in and 9 months out

This baby girl has officially been in the world longer than she was in me.  It’s crazy how time while your pregnant drags on and on, but once she got here it’s been a whirlwind and I can’t believe it’s been a whole 9 months since she got here.  This girl is the biggest ball…

Apple Pear Salad 001

Pear and Apple Salad with Poppyseed Dressing

I still remember the first time I tasted this pear and apple salad.  It was at a family party and my sister-in-law brought it.  It was when I was a noob to homemade salad dressing, and candied almonds.  This salad was a LITTLE different than the one I am featuring here as my husband’s family…

Man, this girl’s personality has BLOSSOMED this month, and she has learned lots of new tricks.  She is officially “mobile” although  I can’t describe with any accuracy her combination of inchworming, rolling, scooting, lunging, one-legged crawling, and ricocheting but she very slowly but surely gets from point A to point B. Which means I have…
