January 22nd, 2012: It always amazes me to watch little kids play with baby dolls… the instinct to be nurturing to little ones is so evident during that special play time.  Although Leah […]

Connect Through Reading – 11/22/63 by Stephen King

11/22/63 by Stephen King – Easily one of the most fascinating books I have ever read! As part of my resolution to “Connect in 2012“, I’ve decided I need to include myself in that connection. I want to connect with the me that used to be… the one who made time for things like reading. […]

Biscotti Vert

Now I Get It! {Recipe: Biscoff Biscotti & “Keep Warm” with Frigidaire}

Pin It I finally get the love people have for Biscotti. I honestly didn’t understand it before. Why was there such adoration for a crunchy type treat that seemed to be having an identity crisis? Is it a cookie or is it a biscuit? Besides that, all the Biscotti I had in the past seemed […]

Banana Sticker Moments

When my sister, Kathy, and I were little, we used to take the stickers off of Dole bananas, tear them into tiny pieces and put them all over our cheeks. The one of us who wore the “sticker” freckles got to play Ginger from Gilligan’s Island while the other got to be Mary Ann. We coveted […]

The Runner’s Diet {Recipe: Spring Salad with Orange Vinaigrette}

In 80 days, I’ll be running my first 5K – not walking, but R-U-N-N-I-N-G. As I’ve mentioned, I’ve officially gotten off my sedentary butt and have taken to going to the gym 4-5 times a week since the new year. I have also been exercising at home on my off days. I’m working with a […]

Project 365 2012 – A Photo A Day Journey – Week 3

Week 3 of 2012 has passed and it was a fairly low key week around here, which I always love. Even though it was low key, it seemed to fly by. Is anyone else in awe of the fact that we are entering the last week of January? Crazy, right? Here’s a look back at […]

BSB Popcorn

Happy National Popcorn Day {Recipe: Buttery Brown Sugar Popcorn}

Pin It Today is National Popcorn Day…who knew, right? When I first started blogging, I had what I thought was a brilliant idea. I’d do my blog posts each time it is a National Food day. Oblivious as I was to the fact that every single day is a “national food day” of some sort. […]

Banana Gelato

Oh, Bananas {Recipe: Banana Gelato}

Pin It Three ripe bananas were sitting in our fruit basket, taunting me with options. Should I make banana muffins?  How about sour cream banana pancakes? Banana Crumble was a huge hit around here… maybe I should use these ripe bananas to make that recipe. Undecided, I went about my business for the day, still […]

Buffalo Chicken Burrito

It’s a Wrap {Recipe: Buffalo Chicken and Black Bean Wrap}

Swanson’s chicken challenged me to create a recipe to solve the 5 o’clock dinner dilemma. My biggest challenge with dinnertime is to remember to set out the meat from the freezer. Nine times out of ten I have a plan, but if that plan requires simply removing the meat from the freezer, my mama brain […]
