Her house always had bowls of dog and cat food outside for any stray animals that came around. She had numerous people in her neighborhood who considered […]

Halloween Traditions (Recipe: Cheeseburger Soup)

I am sitting here tonight, surrounded by kids who have basically been on three days of extreme sugar highs, and I am reminded of why I do not love Halloween. I was a fan when I was a kid, and I do love my own share of candy and kiddos in cute costumes, but the […]

Thou Shalt Not Judge (Recipe – Rib Rub That Rocks)

My husband came home from work the other day and said “Do you ever talk to Tabitha?”, referring to a mom we both know. “Yes” I replied. “Sometimes… why?” “I don’t know… I just got off the phone with her and she is kind of spacey. She just doesn’t seem to have it all together.” […]

Beef It’s What’s For Dinner Wednesdays (Recipe – Cajun Beef Southwestern Salad)

When I met my husband many moons ago, I had quite a bit of baggage that I brought into the relationship with me. I will go into all of that another day, but I was pleasantly surprised when Nick’s family welcomed me in with open arms, not really caring at all about the baggage I […]
