Pumpkin Spice Smoothie Recipe

easy pumpkin spice smoothie

Ahhh. Fall is officially here. Cool weather and all. Ok, not quite cool weather. But it’s only been around 85 degrees! Compared to 95 or 100, it feels pretty nice. With the start of fall, like many many others, I am looking forward to all of the pumpkin coming back into my life. Or should … Read more

Easy Coconut Cake Recipe

easy coconut cake recipe

      That is just about all I have heard for the past couple of months when I asked Greg what I should bake. I know how much he loves his mom’s coconut cake, and I knew it was only a matter of time until I had to make one for the boy too. … Read more

Easy Homemade Sloppy Joe Recipe

homemade sloppy joe recipe

  I made an exception.   Sloppy Joes aren’t exactly the most ladylike food. But I don’t have the appetite of your average lady either (MUCH bigger).      I always rely on Greg to make requests for what I should cook and Sloppy Joes were a no-brainer. A big Sloppy Joe (or two) is … Read more

Green Bean Casserole

  Can you handle one more (belated) Thanksgiving recipe? Please just say yes.    This recipe has somehow been sitting on the back burner (no pun intended) since I made it on Thanksgiving day, but that’s not to say it deserved to be put there.    Flipping through Southern Living searching for T-day recipes, this one immediately … Read more

Making them not quite comparable to cupcakes. Not quite as delicious.    Or so I thought.       These muffins are amazingly light … Read more

Fluffiest Buttermilk Pancakes

fluffiest buttermilk pancakes

Yesterday was a long day. I couldn’t sleep very well so I woke up early and went for a run, thinking about Morgan the whole way. I would have never said anything directly to her, but when we were swimming together I was always secretly trying to beat her. She pushed me to be better … Read more

Easy Apple Pie Recipe

easy apple pie recipe

Apple Pie on Demand   I have said how Greg doesn’t get into desserts quite like I do. It can be difficult to persuade him to go for many of the things I want to bake. So, for the past several weeks, whenever I asked him what I should bake next, all I’ve heard is, … Read more

Creamy Fried Corn

BAM!    Take a look at that gorgeous meal! I hate to brag, but isn’t it just so pretty?         I found this recipe for “Fried Confetti Corn” in Southern Living’s Thanksgiving issue. At the time, I didn’t need another side dish, but there was no way I could forget about it. I love … Read more
