Sausage Gravy & Biscuits

It is said that you can learn a lot about a culture just by eating the food. Well, if that is true then the South is boring. Or at least every recipe that I have encountered for sausage gravy is. When I first moved here, I wanted to dive in […]

Easy Fluffy Biscuits

Living in the South, you are required to have a made-from-scratch biscuit recipe, and everyone’s grandma has the best one. Well not to brag, but these biscuits are the bee’s knees. They are light, fluffy, and great with jam and honey or smothered with sausage gravy. When my family was […]

General Tso’s Chicken

This is one of my spiciest meals. I’m not a fan of spicy foods. Tacos are usually where my tolerance level maxes out. But this, I will devour. It has spice and is packed with flavor. I even made this healthier by cutting down on the oil and not frying […]

Croissants

This recipe is not for the weak of heart. It is a lot of work. I highly suggest reading the directions two or three times. At least two days worth of work, but day one is just mixing the poolish together and let it sit over night. Day two is […]

Herb Crackers

We all know that lunchables are great for school. Quick, easy, and no fuss. There are some downsides to these great little packages: they’re not always the healthiest things eat, they have limited combinations, and when feeding four, the cost can start to add up. I gave those little lunchables […]

Cranberry-Orange Muffins

My husband is crazy for cranberries and oranges. During the fall when oranges are everywhere he will buy a box of oranges, and we’ll make huge batches of marmalade. Then I made the mistake one year of adding cranberries, now that is the only flavor combo he wants. I honestly […]

Taco Zucchini Boat

This idea came to me while I was looking through Pinterest. Normally, when I tell my husband that I have been on Pinterest he rolls his eyes. He knows what is coming next: NEW PROJECTS! Pinterest is my kryptonite when it comes to procrastinating on the internet. I can spend […]

Blueberry Muffins

During June and July, blueberries are everywhere. We go to this pick-your-own blueberry farm every year, and even in the heat we have a blast. My son can and has eaten his weight in blueberries. I swear he eats more than he puts in the baskets. At the end of […]

Rich Chocolate Fudge

Chocolate makes even a bad day better. At least for me. My kids know how to make me happy. I was feeling a little bummed out, and they decided that they were going to make me fudge. See, kids can be thoughtful. My son put on his apron and went […]

Cran-Apple Walnut Chicken Salad

This was a game changer. I love my original version with cheese and bacon. I mean bacon. But I wanted something lighter and just a little healthier. This was a huge hit with the family, and I was lucky enough that they saved me a bite to try it. I’m […]
