This post brought to you by TABASCO® Original Red. All opinions are 100% mine. Some of you really like things hot. I know my dad isn’t happy with the heat of something unless he has tears streaming down his face. His “hot” tolerance is off the charts. For most of us though, we may like…

Eat. Live. Be. Week 3 (Recipe: Recipe Girl Fish Tacos)

Mexican Spice Recipe

I’m going to just get right to business here. The scale was not so nice to me this past Monday for weigh in, and after some of my behavior from this past week, I wouldn’t expect it to be. I knew when I first posted my weight on my blog, it would be hard putting…

Eat. Live. Be. Week 2 Update (Recipe: Crispy Oven Roast Chicken)

Snow Day

One of my very first posts many moons ago on Dine & Dish was about how I don’t “do” snow. I’m not a fan. I think it’s pretty and all, but I’d rather sit in by the fire, snuggled up with a good book, looking out on it falling gently on the trees rather than…

Share Our Strength Progressive Dinner (Recipe: Potato Rolls)

It is frigid outside. The kind of frigid where you just want to curl up in your favorite fluffy slipper socks and PJ’s, the biggest blanket you can find and hibernate for the day, getting lost in a good book. Add to that putting on a  pot of my favorite comfort food on the stove…

Don’t forget to enter the giveaway for a gorgeous pewter measuring spoon set from Crosby & Taylor! It is no newsflash to Dine & Dish readers that I’m a little perturbed that I still live in Kansas. I always thought I would be out of this state at some point, but 37 years later, I…

Traditions? What Traditions? {Recipe: Baked Sweet Potato Fries}

Thanksgiving was really quiet at our house this year. We typically have a group of neighbors over who do not have family nearby and we all enjoy a loud, raucous, delicious Thanksgiving together. This year, however, everyone was heading out of town which left us to a house with, well… just us. I was a…

A Thankful Belly {Recipe: Mom’s Spaghetti and Meatballs}

Thanksgiving…what does it mean to you? I admit, I try to have an attitude of gratitude each day of my life, but honestly..sometimes when you are knee deep in a 4 year old having a fit about not wanting to brush her teeth, an 8 year old giving you drama that he gets treated unfairly…
