With Easter just around the corner I couldn’t resist sharing my all-time favorite Easter craft. This sweet, savory, smooth, crunchy little pocket of joy is DELICIOUS and super easy to make. Might it be the perfect activity for this Saturday afternoon? I think so. Aside from being scrumptious they also make for beautiful centerpieces or… read more

Heavenly…

Some call them “Heavenly Bars” but in our house my husband lovingly refers to them as “Fat Pills”. Oh the chocolatey, graham crackery goodness that awaits you with each and every bite! I contemplated not doing this post because I didn’t want anyone to know how truly easy they are to make. Then I thought… read more

Southern Charms

We’ve all got one. A southern friend who always looks put together, never forgets a hostess gift or thank you card, and makes a cheese platter look like it was designed by Inna Gartner. I recently acquired one such friend and I adore her. Beneath a polished ladylike exterior is a good sense of humor… read more

It’s that glorious time of year. Girl Scout cookie selling season is almost upon us! In their honor I too will be pimping cookies in this post. Since my own Girl Scout days I have been passionate about these sweet treats.

Things I am loving right now… Imagine the options. I bought 2 of these for each of my minis earlier this winter, and I threw 2 XL in the basket for me too.

Ooh! Ahh! Warm muffins. What a way to start the day! This recipe is great because it is egg, nut, and dairy free. That makes it the ideal baked good to bring to school when it is your turn to make snack. Wondering how they taste without eggs and dairy? I promise they are moist… read more

Time for a quickie!

TBDFRCH EC002

There is nothing I like more than quickly throwing together a meal. And when I say “throwing” I literally mean taking all sorts of random things that are in the kitchen and just throwing them together!
