Recipe Round-Up: December 2016

Another month has passed, and with it came many new recipes to try. Although time was short, I did manage to squeeze in a few new, exciting learning moments with foods that I had never made before. It gave me a really good momentum that I hope to take into 2017. Of course, since December is filled ...

On Resolutions and Getting Out Of A Rut

First off, I would like to congratulate everyone who made it through 2016 intact. How are you? Do you need a glass of water? A hug? I know I do. It has been, on every level, a hard year for a lot of us. Many point to the elections, but I would say that it goes far beyond that. Some of us have watched ...

It's too cold to do much of anything, so we've been doing as much as possible while inside. My long afternoon ...

Recipe Round-Up: November 2016

Last month, I began a new segment on the blog called Recipe Round-Up, where I share with you the recipes that I have been using that I found yummy enough to recommend. For November, my butt was saved at several family functions by these recipes, and I am eternally grateful for ...
