the most important thing to remember about parenting

The sun was pouring into the east sky, scattering orange like a blanket over everything.  She was sitting in the front seat, unable or unwilling to look at me, her head turned decidedly away and her body clinging to her side of the car sending its message loud and clear.  Was there a tear in […]

I hope to make your meal prep and planning easier by helping you get all the stuff you need for a season of great cooking.  And there’s no better time to embrace cooking at home than fall.  I can hardly contain my excitement!

I hate to even mention this to some of you who live in the northwest or midwest or northeast and have really short summers but here in the South, all we can think about is fall.  It’s been summer since April here and we’re over it.  AND?  It’s almost football season (Glory Hallelujah!) which means […]

“How to announce the return of comfort and well-being except by cooking something fragrant. That is what her mother always did. After every calamity of any significance she would fill the atmosphere of the house with the smell of cinnamon rolls or brownies, or with chicken and dumplings, and it would mean, This house has […]

Well.  I can’t give you a good reason why we’ve been friends all these years and I’m just now getting around to sharing this recipe.  It’s a good one—one that we make it several times every summer, in between all the actual s’mores making and the monster cookies. My peeps LOVE these and once you […]

Well.  I’m 3 days into recovering from food poisoning.  I no longer wish to die, so that’s always a plus. I got out of bed almost like normal for the past two days.  I’m still slightly nauseous but am overall on the mend.  I haven’t been able to exercise all week, which usually negatively affects […]

There’s a good chance that a batch of these monster cookies will be made in my kitchen every weekend from now till the end of  August.  Why, you ask?  Well.  There’s two good reasons.  The first reason is—these are the signature cookies that my beloved 12 year old makes and when someone else offers to […]

I married a biology major who loves and studies birds and trees.  In the house before this one,  he planted 90—yes you read that right—90! trees.  His middle name is Martin so maybe he comes by it honestly.  In this house, I lost count at around 40.  He was planning the trees before the foundation […]

puffytacos2

I’m about to give away the family jewels here.  And listen.  After all the busyness and writing and preparing of the last few weeks, I’d give just about anything away for summer to be here.  Or least to never have to be nicely dressed for 12 straight hours again.  I’ve become such a homebody whiner.
