Rambling on my way to my 30s and a Cooking Class on 9/5/12!!! Yay!

First, I must apologize for all of the “reflection” posts lately, and lack of recipes. I’ll be back on the recipes shortly, I promise. I’m just in a very pivotal moment it seems in life. By no means is it a bad thing, but it is definitely causing me to think a lot about the…

Lions and Trees on plates, Oh My!

For many of you that know me or have been following my blog, you know how important my family is to me. Today was an extremely warming day. Not just that it was above 90 degrees here in the humid South, but because I spent half the day with my most wonderful Grandma. Every year,…

More Bacon Please! Bacon Biscuit Muffins

Confused? Yeah…me too. But, I couldn’t find a better name for these little guys. I posted very recently about the BEC Pockets, and the day before I had made these Bacon Biscuit Muffins. Don’t worry, I don’t eat like this normally. It sure is nice though to get up on the weekend and have time…

Poppin’ for Popcorn!

For Christmas Eve with my family, I decided to have a Popcorn Bar with different selections of seasoned popcorns.  I, being the stellar daughter that I am, had to call Mom and make sure she had her braces off so she could enjoy the selection.  Needless to say…they have been off for a few years. …

BEC Breakfast Pouches–Perfection!

It’s no secret that I LOVE bacon…however, I try not to keep it around so often, because I could literally consume so much it would be very bad for my health. It’s also no secret that I like to experiment with wrapping food in doughs for breakfast. Sooo…this leads me to today’s recipe. I had…

Hot and Sour Soup soothes the soul…

This one will be short and sweet, or hot and sour, depending on how you look at it. *smiles* I’ve been sitting here the past few days coughing my head off, attempting to nurse myself back to health, and at my wits end with a Rudolph nose. A good friend suggested to me that I…

Will Cook for Foo: Week 10–Cheeking Peppers Vlog

Here’s the thing about Foo Fighters. I just recently learned (after starting my journey of the “Will Cook for Foo” posts) that their Tour Rider is supposedly a hilarious concoction of humor. It even has a special section for the food as well…a coloring book. *huge smiles* I truly adore these guys! The Catering section…

Will Cook for Foo: Week 9 – Monkeying around with Monkey Bread

Innocence…Do you remember what that is? Do you remember the feeling that innocence brought you back in the day? The feeling of an easier time, less responsibilities, less issues, less worries, less hurt…less friends, less companionship, less adventures, less life. Concerned about the twist in that last statement, folks? You shouldn’t be. Your life is…
