Guinness Chocolate Truffles

It’s that time of year again, people…the time when I whip out the beer to create yummy recipes and pretend that it is all for St. Patrick’s Day.  Yeah, it’s not.  What can I say, I love the flavor that beer adds to all kinds of dishes! And since beer and chocolate should be paired […]

This shop has been compensated by Collective Bias, Inc. and its advertiser. All opinions are mine alone. #BigHero6Release #CollectiveBias   I took my kiddos to go see Big Hero 6 on Christmas Eve as a way to take our minds off of my husband being deployed for the holidays.  We were looking for something light […]

Pan-muffins? Muff-cakes? Pancake Bites? Who Cares What They are Called, They are Delicious!

pancake-bites-1

Pancake Bites Down here in the south, the kids are enjoying a nice long break from school.  Not only was it a three day weekend due to President’s Day, but we are now smack in the middle of our second “snow day.”  I don’t think I will ever get used to the fear of the […]

I am so, so sorry. I’m sorry that it is smack dab in the middle of Girl Scout cookie season and I am throwing this in your face. Because I know the temptation that comes along with those sweet smiles from the impossibly cute Girl Scout sales people.  It is so hard to resist purchasing a […]

I don’t know about you, but come winter I basically live in boots.  Not only do they keep my feet toasty warm, but they keep water and snow out and they look great with jeans and leggings.  I have one pair in particular that I am almost never without.  I adore them and because I […]

Oreo Rice Krispie Treats

Sometimes you just need to break out a nostalgic favorite treat and pig out.  And every now and then you need to take that treat and turn it up to 11, bringing it to a whole new level of awesome. That is what I did last week when I decided to make some rice krispie […]

As winter seems to continue to drag on, my skin and lips continue to dry out.  And it’s not just me, my house is full of little people who seem to have a really hard time not licking their lips and drying them further.  But my breaking point came when my oldest daughter’s lips started […]

Buffalo Chicken Twice Baked Potatoes

buffalo-chicken-twice-baked-potatoes-4

I feel as though I should preface this outrageously delicious buffalo chicken twice baked potato recipe by admitting that I am basically addicted to Frank’s Buffalo Wing Sauce. I mean, I might as well just drink it straight from the bottle with the way that I douse my food in it. In my mind, everything is […]

Affordable and High Quality Chalk Paint Options and my Sideboard Makeover

sideboard-10

I’ve mentioned before that I tend to be lazy when it comes to painting furniture, and that could not be more accurate.  However, I am always drawn to older pieces, ones that have character and flaws.  I love detail and knowing that there is probably a great story behind the scratches and nicks.  So what […]
