Hey y’all! Happy 2018! I hope everyone had a really nice holiday. We really did! My parents came into town to visit, and since we only see them a few times a year, I took some time off to spend solely with family. I usually do a bit of a social media break over Christmas and New Years and always find that it leaves me feeling energized and ready to go in the new year. Thanks for understanding.

I seriously cannot even BELIEVE that Christmas is two weeks from TODAY. I feel like I say this every year at this time, but wow…where did the time go?! I think about last December…we moved into our new house in a new city right after Christmas. It felt like a hard season back then. I had a five month old and a two year old and, as much as I thought I would unpack “over the weekend”, we ended up living in boxes for months before we were finally all settled. I didn’...

Hey guys! I am excited to share some of my holiday picks with you all today. I’ve been getting a lot of questions lately on toys for toddlers and we are getting our kids for Christmas. Luke is still so little that anything really goes, but we are excited to surprise the boys with a few things on Christmas morning.

This recipe is for all my chocoholic friends out here. Monday is an excellent day for some gooey double chocolate cookies…am I right or am I right?!? I mean, tis the season afterall. I had the most amazing flourless chocolate cookie at a local cafe last week and I hadn’t been able to stop thinking about it! Luke is still doing the whole gluten free / dairy free / soy free thing …and this was the best option. As the friendly barista said, “these cookies have helped many...

If you know me, you know that I ADORE soups and this one basically has everything I love most in life in it. We’ve got pasta, greens, bacon, cheese, beans, really good tomatoes…the list goes on. It’s pure comfort in a bowl and will definitely be on repeat this winter! Surprisingly enough, I had never really made a pasta e fagioli before. I sort of winged it here, but it turned out really, really yummy so I had to share! If you have been following my Insta stories, you know t...

Howdy from Texas! While the rest of the internet is bringing you Thanksgiving recipe after Thanksgiving recipe this week, I decided to take a break from the kitchen and share with you some of my favorite reads lately instead. I’ve shared so many Thanksgiving recipes over the years on this site and you all know where you can find them. Today, let’s talk about books instead because a long weekend probably means you have some extra time to read, right? Listen. I have been really tryi...

Let the holiday baking commence!!! You all may remember this recipe. I originally posted it way back in 2010, I believe, and since then it has remained one of the most popular and beloved recipes on this site. I wanted to remake it and repost it today for any of you newer readers. Plus, this bread deserved much better photography than what it was originally given seven years ago.

We may have a pasta eating problem in our house, you guys. I have been making a TON of pasta lately!! It’s usually just the easiest option and something everyone will eat. Now, I have always prided myself on the fact that my kids (mostly) will eat anything and I don’t make special meals for them. The boys eat what we eat. End of story. That being said, they are three and a half and a year and a half. They don’t love fussy food and mac and cheese is, hands down, their favorit...
