Bacon, Sausage and Cheddar Quiche

While we didn’t plan on getting together with our families for Easter because we knew we would be having a baby the week before, it’s still strange that family gatherings will be looking very different on Sunday and that most churches will be streaming their services online.

Spicy Sausage Dip

The other day I was reminiscing about college and living in the dorms. I thought about the friends I made my first couple of years, all of the classes I never wanted to study for, and for some reason, my mind jumped all the way to disgusting cafeteria food (most of my trains of thought […]

Green Bean Casserole

Hey now, hey now… this is what green beans are made of. See what I did there? Any Lizzie McGuire fans? No… just me. Okay, cool. My life was all about the green beans yesterday. As I sought to prepare my final Thanksgiving dish for the blog this year, I had a tough time deciding […]
