Overnight Oatmeal

I keep seeing recipes for Overnight Oatmeal and before you try them, I’m going to let you in on two secrets. I know you can’t wait to hear these life-altering facts so I won’t make you wait any longer by shamelessly sticking them at the end of the post so you will read all the […]

Southern Summer

After a long break, I am back on the blog.  I decided last March when my blog experienced some major  difficulties, i.e., The “White Screen of Death” where all your content disappears, that I would make some major changes to the blog.  I received extensive help from a professional and friend, Randy, and decided to overhaul […]

I’m still working on the t-shirt quilt although it is coming along nicely.I have cut 45 rectangles and now I am sewing them together.  Next is the batting and the backing.  Davis and Olivia get home for their Spring Break this Friday so I hope to be finished by then if not much sooner.

Pancakes

Pancakes

This is a basic pancake recipe.  Nothing fancy.  Nothing added.  Just easy to make and always delicious. I try to like box mixes for pancakes and waffles but I don’t. I also don’t like buttermilk pancakes. Too thick and pasty. This recipe is my favorite because the pancakes are light and fluffy and only require […]

Cherry Coconut Granola Bars and Cheddar Bacon Biscuits

Last summer I decided to add a little fun to my bedroom fireplace mantle and I decorated with mermaids and treasure from the sea. I have always enjoyed the beach and imagine myself living there one day but for now, I am landlocked.  Unfortunately word soon got out that I had booty on my mantle and […]

Smoothie Bowl and a Cross-Body Purse

Today is the last day of my winter vacation from school.  We got a week off this year  (sometimes it is just a day or two) and then we get another week off in April for spring break. It basically just prolongs the school year because we go 190 days regardless, but it sure is nice […]

Presidential Pears

Happy Presidents Day!.  Since I have met then-presidential candidate Ronald Reagan when I was 15, I feel confident as the resident expert on all things of a patriotic nature. Here is a picture from the newspaper as I greeted Reagan when he landed at the Atlanta Hartsfield Jackson Airport on a campaign stop in April 1976. […]

Spinach Quiche

Spinach Quiche and Giveaway #2

I had just put my pie crust in the oven to prebake for a spinach quiche when my friend Gina texted me and said, “Look what we’re having for brunch – broccoli and turkey sausage quiche.” I’m cracking up because my plans for the blog and my quiche looked a little something like this. Gina […]

Savory Supper Grits

Savory Supper Grits and Butterless Biscuits

Tonight I made an “interesting” dinner of grits, baked beans, biscuits,  a fresh pear, and radishes.  I personally thought the dinner items complemented each other but in actuality I guess they probably didn’t.  One of the perks of living alone is that it doesn’t matter what you eat.  Or when you eat or where you […]

Monkey Bread

Monkey Bread with Sass

Years ago I tried Monkey Bread and thought it was the greatest treat ever.  Then as all things go, people weren’t content with this humble little pull-apart bread and soon created Gorilla Bread.  My friend Gina brought Gorilla Bread to one of our friend gatherings and we have all been hooked ever since. Today I […]
