A perfect morning….

Yes, we can all make gourmet items for breakfast.  I take great love and joy in making these items as a matter of fact.  Sometimes though, I enjoy the simplicty of a good bowl of Froot Loops.  Something about the ease of preparation and the comfort of knowing it will always taste just the way…

New Vegetarian Love…

I recently posted that I was going to attempt to have at least two vegetarian meals a day.  I also said that if I didn’t succeed with the challenge, I wasn’t going to lose motivation to try it.  So far…it’s working out pretty well most days.  I start out with either oatmeal, cereal, or scrambled…

A delicious, simple, homemade “pop-tart”…

If you saw the Nutella Fortune Cookie recipe, you may remember I mentioned something about making my own strawberry pop-tarts by altering the dough to non-chocolate.  I finally tried it! Four ingredients make up the dough.  I altered it to where I believed it would make it lower calories, but it seems, after the actual…

A tale of Bacon and my Cousin

Bacon: B is for Brilliantly:  Isn’t it beautiful how the light brilliantly bounces off the hot grease on the freshly prepared bacon.  A is for Awaken:  Awaken and take in a whiff of the bacon frying in the pan as  it stirs your body from slumber (the hub enjoys this one since I usually make…

It’s time to stop being complacent…

New year, new you, new resolutions to break.  We constantly set ourselves up for failure.  A majority of us set goals that are HUGE goals.  Goals that could possibly be realized, but the fact that we may fall off the plan on the way to realizing that goal can seriously sidetrack us with frustration and…

One thing I love about Fridays….

First and foremost I apologize for the brevity of this post.  I am super exhausted from a wonderful workout and a very productive day.  Ready to close my eyes and drift away…wait, already did that while watching Modern Marvels.  Oh well. The one thing I love about Fridays is the anticipation of the Saturday breakfast. …

**Healthy** Banana Bread Pancakes

It’s not often that you have seen healthy items on my site.  I am working towards making this more prevalent on the site as I reach my goals in life.  Recently, Mom sent me a recipe for Banana Bread Pancakes…I LOVE Banana Bread!!!  The catch…this recipe contained cottage cheese.  Growing up, I remember Mom eating a…

Misinterpretations work out great sometimes!

You know how sometimes we misinterpret what others tell us?  Although that can sometimes be absolutely horrible, and people get their panties in a wad…in recipes, this can result in a glorious bite to eat!  Maw-Maw mentioned this little biscuit creation that her friend brings to church on Sunday mornings sometimes.  Honestly, I can’t remember…

Ugh…Dishes…I despise dishes..

I can’t think of anything I despise more than doing dishes.  Unfortunately, for me (and the hub), I love to cook and my hub loves to eat.  Let’s face it, us Southerners have so much more we could be doing with our time on a nice evening besides doing dishes after dinner.  We could be…

Nostalgia: Biscuits, Good Southern Buttermilk Biscuits!

Some may say that it is a rarity to find a perfect biscuit maker.  A good Southern Buttermilk Biscuit is like a bar of solid gold, and the biscuit maker is the gold mine.  Southern cuisine, at it’s finest, almost always involves a steaming hot, right-out-of-the-oven, golden buttermilk biscuit.  This is making me hungry!  Nothing better…

A New Dawn…

It comes to a point when one looks at their life and realizes that a change needs to happen.  Change can be many things.  Currently, my change it becoming a healthier me without compromising flavor. I came up with this one, and it was amazingly full of flavor! I chopped a green bell pepper (next…

Altered Health…

I woke up this morning not feeling too well, and I certainly didn’t want to grab for the fiber-filled healthy cereal.  I wanted something mild, something semi-bland, but yet something that would be easy and delicious.  The hub pulled out a box of Wheat Blend Hungry Jack Pancake Mix.  YUM!  All I could think about…
