Happy Halloweenie!: Spiderweb Cupcakes

Who doesn’t like cupcakes? Who doesn’t like parties? Who doesn’t like Halloween! This holiday combines a lot of my favorite things: sugar, red lipstick and hanging with friends. I made these cupcakes tonight for a few friends as homework deemed more important than trick or treating. They are light yet decadent and a perfect party […]

Brunch for Lunch: An Omelette How-To

Sometimes brunch just happens. One text leads to another and soon everyone is bringing juice and eggs and muffins over! Sunday is a lazy day and spending it with friends and food is a grand idea. An omelette bar is an even greater idea! Preparing an omelette station is a great idea, especially when you […]

Forever Falling in Love with Fall: Mini Pumpkin Swirl Cheesecakes

Everything about Fall weather suits me. I love the seasonal food, the scarves, the weather… it just puts me into such a better mood. Too bad I go back down to South Florida for Thanksgiving, it feels so much more like real Thanksgiving time when you don’t have palm trees swaying outside your front window. […]

My Oh Mayo

Fall in a Muffin Tin

Growing up, my family had only ever made their own pie crust or pizza dough or other baked goods. Today, I have discovered the wonderland that is Pillsbury pre-made dough. I bought a bag of frozen biscuits the other day and it was one of the best decisions I have made since buying Cinnamon Raisin […]

No Food For You!

I haven’t been shopping for food in over a week and a half. I’ve been out of town or going out just to avoid buying a whole bunch of stuff that would have gone bad awhile I was away. So, I’m done being away from Tallahassee but by the time I was hungry, Publix was […]

I’ll admit, I’m not the blogging queen and I cannot tell you everything about the blogosphere but I’m going to take it from my perspective. Look below to see the information that I’m going to […]

Home Sweet Home with Comfort Food

It’s so good being home. Coming back to clean laundry, homemade meals, no dishes to be responsible for, magically clean sheets… it is all glorious. Until you have a house and can see how much work goes into running one, you can’t truly appreciate what mom does. Thanks, mom! A After driving seven hours home, […]
