Spicy Sweet Potato Soup with Tabasco Original Red

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 […]

Old Habits {Recipe: Oven Baked Teriyaki Chicken Thighs}

Old habits die hard… like my past habit of only eating boneless skinless chicken breasts. I never even considered using any other kind of chicken…EVER.

Classic Fish & Chips

Super Bowl Bar Food {Recipe: Classic Fish & Chips}

Before my husband and I were married, I pretended like I liked football and would lay around on the couch with him all weekend during the fall and winter acting insanely fascinated by the college and NFL football games.

Hershey Toffee Bit Cookies

An Ended Love Affair (Recipe: Hershey’s Toffee Bit Cookies)

It was great while it lasted… I know it was only yesterday that I was claiming my true love for all things snow. Yes, I threw around the word “Happiness” and how I was “present” with my kids. I even said “beautiful” and “Kansas” in the same sentence, which I believe is a first for […]
