The Well Stocked Pantry via lifeingrace

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! Football food, tailgating, soup, chili, pumpkin everything.  It’s gonna be good, y’all. […]

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 […]

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 […]

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.

italian wedding soup2

Well.  First of all, let me say that I love weddings.  EVERY last thing about them. I get all teary eyed for the bride and groom.  I always imagine that I’m the photographer, looking for those candid moments that can’t be missed.  I love the wedding liturgy, the familiar words, the dancing, all of it.

Thank you for all your kind comments on our dorky homegrown videos yesterday and on Melanie’s book. You are the best kind of friends! Chocolate chip cookie recipes are like purses to me.  There’s one for every occasion.  Actually, that’s not true at all, because I’ve been carrying the same purse for over a year. […]
