What’s up with Curd?

In a search for inspiration, I went to Pinterest to see what was trending… curd recipes, apparently. Raspberry, lemon, strawberry, cranberry, pineapple, orange, the list goes on and on of curd recipes you can find. 

The Thing About Salads …

Now let’s get honest, I’ve been posting a lot of photos of well-balanced dinners over on my Instagram. All inspired and feeling that “Yes” I can totally do this on the regular after that cooking class last week. 

I do, scratch that, I can enjoy a good salad.

The Gift of Cooking

For my birthday in November, I was given the gift of “Do Something”. My something happened to be a cooking class yesterday evening with my husband, Ben.

It’s Freezing Outside

It’s been below zero (Fahrenheit) where I live for a few days now, I think it about time to just say it. Brr!!

Winter Center Piece

Most of the family holiday dinners we go to, be it Thanksgiving or Christmas, is served buffet style. With the food out in the kitchen, there is plenty of space on the table for mom’s china place settings, butter, salt, pepper, and a centerpiece. The most memorable centerpiece my Mom puts out is her Snowbabies. 

New Camera

Ben gave me a DSLR camera, a Canon EOS Rebel T6, early for Christmas this year!

Christmas Meringues

I had a lunch late last month with a friend and we had a lot of fun catching up and talking about Christmas cookies. Leaving that lunch the idea of a Christmas cookie baking day was born and oh am I over ambitious.

Christmas Wreaths

With a live Christmas tree comes pine tree trimmings! The trimmed branches have been sitting outside for a bit and I finally made it to the craft store this week to pick up a couple of wreath frames, floral wire, and extra decor for my three wreaths. 

Chocolate Pretzel Holiday Snack

This holiday snack is salty and sweet, yum yum! Round pretzels filled will kisses and M&Ms. Sweet milk chocolate and a salty pretzel keep me coming back for more.

Caring Jambalya

In the area, we live in a big fundraising effort is made in December for We Care. Efforts involve Christmas light displays, people out collecting with donation buckets at intersections, a telethon, and apparently a shop with cookbooks! 

Deck the Halls (Home)…

We’ve been busy once again making an effort to organize stuff from our move in order to put out the Christmas decorations.
