hello new week…

I love Monday’s, the beginning of a new week!  It is like the greatest start over day and to make it even better it comes around every 7 days. Each Monday I make a point to take some time Monday morning I take some time to sit write down and my …

making jam in the oven…yes the oven

Is there anything better than homemade jam?  I don’t know about you but I love me some homemade jam, but I never thought I could make my own without a whole lot of time and trouble…well I am here to change your mind…we are going to be making jam in …

it’s biscuit time

If it were up to The Hubby it would always be biscuit time.  I honestly think he would have biscuits at every meal if I made them…unfortunately for him I rarely make them so when I do it is quite the BIG DEAL! I decided a while ago that since …

be awesome…always

Do you ever have one of those days that you wake up and you just kinda feel blah?  Well, I know I have and I wish I would have had this sign posted somewhere to remind me to be awesome.  I know that may sounds kinda cheesy but its true…I …

mashin’ up a sweet tater

A sweet tater (or potato if your not my dad) is God’s gift to the land of yummy starches…at least in my opinion.  I just love the bit of sweet (or sometimes a lot of sweet) and the bright orange color and of course all the delicious dishes you can make …

cherish every moment

simple salmon = delicious

As I have said before simple really is sometimes the best way to go…and this simple salmon is definitely the best I have had in a while.   The Hubby and I love salmon and we have had many different ways.  Some with sauces, such as this Lemon Caper Salmon, …

one pan & done alfredo

Who doesn’t love a one pan meal…I mean c’mon it comes together with just a few steps and clean-up is super fast making this a perfect dinner option for a busy day. Over the years I made my fair share of one pan meals like this one pan spaghetti and this …

A smart person…

This quote really speaks to me a lot…I have always wanted to be more wise than smart.   Have you ever had something to say but in the back of your head there was something telling you to not say it? Well I know from experience that sometimes it is …

remaking the oreo

I love Oreo cookies.  At any given time you can find at least 1 package in my pantry…right now I have the original variety and the new S’more variety.   PS… the s’more options is so, so good, especially for the summer. As much as I love the Oreo cookie …
