Just Don’t Think About It

I’m going to start this post off with a self-slap to my face, a shake, and a loud, “Kristen…get a hold of yourself!!!”. I need to pull it together, and I need to do so quickly. I have been an emotional wreck this week thinking about my middle daughter, Kelly, starting Kindergarten. I know this […]

Cheddar Bacon Wrapped Hamburgers

When I was a young girl, I did not like to eat anything messy. Hamburgers were condiment free. I couldn’t stand Barbecue because of the mess it made all over your hands, face and clothes. I ate my ice cream only out of bowls… not out of cones because I hated to have melting ice […]

A Matter of Taste

I am a very visual person. I love to have recipes with photographs… it makes the recipe that much more tempting and desirable. Often times, I will be flipping through a magazine and will fall in love with a photo of a recipe, only to take a look at the recipe and realize that I […]
