Big City Living (Recipe: Bacon & Egg Cups)

I grew up in a town with a population of a whoppin’ 1,000 residents. As children, we would walk the streets freely after dark without our parents worrying about us being harmed. My friends and I would sit up on the curb of the local convenience store or on the bench outside of the post […]

I seem to be out of words tonight, but luckily sometimes there are things that don’t need much of an introduction. This pancake recipe is an International House of Pancakes ® copycat recipe. You wouldn’t think that a couple of measly little tablespoons of pumpkin and cinnamon would change the flavor of a simple pancake […]

No Stress Basic Quiche (and a Pillsbury gift basket giveaway!)

I know a lot of people who are stressing out about all they need to do before Christmas arrives. I have never been one to get too worked up about things. I plan ahead, but admittedly am a last minute doer. Still, I try not to let things like hosting big dinner parties or having […]

We Are Having a….

It is a funny thing, being pregnant. I was sick for almost the entire first half of this pregnancy, only starting to feel good the past couple of weeks. I still don’t look pregnant. I just look like I have had a few too many Jelly Doughnuts. I don’t feel the baby moving very much […]
