Lately, I have been on the look out for healthy meals for my family that are DIFFERENT from some combination of chicken and vegetables. We’ve done chicken salads, chicken roll ups, chicken casseroles, but at the end of the day, its still chicken and vegetables. Not that there is anything wrong with that, it just… Read More


Lemon Cupcake

Here it is, the end all, be all of lemon cupcakes. A family in my neck of the woods is adopting an 11-year-old girl from China. International adoptions are out of this world expensive so her friends put together a benefit fundraiser/bake sale for the family, unbeknownst to them. I brought cupcakes and I wanted… Read More


A couple of weeks ago, my friend’s little 18 month old daughter was very sick in the hospital. The baby was heavily medicated and had a tube down her throat to help her breath. My friend was not moving an inch away from her baby and I don’t blame her. So she was stuck at… Read More


I had a birthday last week. Ugh. Twenty seven. Twenty six still sounds young and fresh, but 27 sounds so grown up and serious. I didn’t even make a birthday cake because I just couldn’t handle it.

The cream cheese layer complimented the the bread and pumpkin very well and added a nice range of flavor. The second reason I love this recipe is the texture. I was afraid the… Read More

Steak & Amazing BBQ Sauce

If you would have been walking through my neighborhood tonight, you would have been drooling. My husband made the most amazing steaks with even more amazing barbeque sauce. I had never had barbeque sauce like this before. I kept snitching it by the spoonful before the steaks we’re ready to be smothered in it. Sorry… Read More
