Easy DIY Holiday Wreath

I’m bringing back an old post because, like me, you might need to update your Christmas or holiday wreath this year! Christmas is probably my favorite time of year, and I go a little overboard. Our Christmas lights are hung on the house already. We put up two trees, and I’m sure there would be [Read On]

Shepherd’s Pie Is My Favorite Comfort Food

This Shepherd’s Pie reminds both kids of the time we lived in Wales. When I cooked the minced lamb (that’s ground lamb to you and me), the dog would sit outside, salivating and staring at the exhaust vent where it exited the kitchen over the patio. We ALL loved it. I think you will too, [Read On]

How To Cook Spaghetti Squash in the Instant Pot

We love spaghetti squash here. I am also very disorganized and am typically rushing to get dinner on the table. (Probably because I’ve got my nose in a book OR because I was actually writing. Or because I’m disorganized. I’ll be honest about it.) Preparing spaghetti squash in the Instant Pot is one of my [Read On]

DIY: Easy Christmas Countdown Chain

Kids love to count down the days until Christmas! There are many ways to do it, too.

Aunt Jeanne’s Pumpkin Cake

It’s fall, and certainly, that means all-you-can pumpkin. I love pumpkin so much that when fall comes around, I question why I don’t ever bake anything pumpkin the rest of the year!  And while this whole pumpkin spice business is getting a bit out of hand (and by the taste of it, “pumpkin spice” refers [Read On]

Watermelon Granita

This morning I’m dreaming of the Outer Banks, fresh watermelons, and the watermelon granita I’d make because we were always overoptimistic about watermelons. (They are pretty irresistible.) Click here if you are impatient and need to jump straight to the recipe (and possibly miss out on my helpful commentary and humor). Every year as arrive [Read On]

Cookbook Review: 20 Recipes Kids Should Know

I must confess, while I’m always happy to see book mail, my equally bookish daughter is tickled when books aimed at her demographic land at my front door. When I received my copy of 20 Recipes Kids Should Know from the authors’ publicists for review*, she quickly snatched it up and was marking recipes she’d [Read On]

Double Toffee Banoffee Pie

My family can be sentimental and we’re not ashamed of it. Whenever we see something that reminds us of a favorite place or event, it doesn’t take much to put us in full longing mode. This also usually involves food. For instance, a movie set in London will prompt memories of our time in the UK…which eventually brought [Read On]
