Chipotle Lime Black Beans


I love me some Mexican food. Cody and I like to have tacos, or some other sort of Mexican dish, once a week. We just can't get enough of it. I'm constantly trying to come up with new side dishes to go with our Mexican cuisine and black beans are typically a great thing to add! This dish is easy to whip up and is great when cooked for a long time. Dump everything in the pot, simmer it on low, and forget about it! That's my favorite kind of recipe. How about you!? These beans are … [Read more...]

Lucky Charms Cake Bars


I'm a sucker for holidays. I like to blame my mom for this one. Every holiday was a big deal in our house while we were growing up. Even St. Patrick's Day. We'd wear green and we definitely got pinched if we weren't. I can even remember telling my dad I had green undergarments on (is that allowed to say on the internet!?) so he wouldn't pinch me. Being Irish, too, I always thought it was neat to have a day to celebrate my heritage. But a few years ago the day to 'wear green, avoid getting … [Read more...]

Snowmageddon 2015


In case you haven't heard, it snowed a little bit in Huntsville yesterday. We had been hearing from our local meteorologists that it was going to, but to be honest it's hit or miss with them. Sometimes they're right on. Most times they're not. They said the day before that the 'mageddon was gonna hit around noon and that we'd get around 2 inches. That of course meant that we'd all be stuck in our houses for a couple days, so like the rest of the city, I ventured to the grocery store with … [Read more...]

Kale, Bacon, and Butternut Squash


Every time I see Kale I am brought back to the days my family and I used to go to Luby's. Luby's was a chain most like Picadilly (cafeteria style buffet) in Texas. I don't think they exist anymore, but we used to go what seemed like once a week when I was little. Just daddy, mama, and me. Before siblings. Before school. Life was good with that weekly trip to Luby's and jello cups. Back in those days, kale was just a garnish on a plate that noone thought they could actually eat. Now, people … [Read more...]

Omelet Muffins


Hey sweet fans! I know, it's been forever and a day since you've heard from me. I apologize for that. Truth is, blogging is HARD. And with a full time job, a growing newborn baby, husband, and trying to keep myself in check I just haven't had the time to sit down and chat with y'all. I'm sorry about that, really I am. I've missed sharing with all of you sweet people! Since 2015 started, I've been back on my clean-eating train. This may shock some of you since I mainly post sweet recipes, but … [Read more...]

Glitter Ornaments and Christmas Cards


It's the time of year again - time for the Christmas cards to start arriving in the mail. I love seeing them in my mailbox from the beginning of December through the week of Christmas. I display each and everyone on the wall in our kitchen so we can pray for, think about, and be reminded of each sweet family every day. It warms my heart to see all of those smiling faces in our home, especially during the most wonderful time of the year. This year, I was inspired by a Tiny Prints design … [Read more...]

Pumpkin Pie


It is most definitely not Thanksgiving in our house if there is no pumpkin pie. It's been on our table for years! This year, since my husband isn't a fan of pumpkin, we decided to forgo the traditional pie. So, I made it a few days early for myself. Because, like I said, it's not Thanksgiving unless you've made a pumpkin pie. Now, if only I had some turkey and sweet potato casserole on this chilly Monday before Thanksgiving. This pumpkin pie is my favorite recipe I've tried because … [Read more...]

Pecan Pie Cupcakes


It doesn't need to be said that Pecan Pie is a traditional Thanksgiving dessert. We've been making the same recipe in our house for years, so I thought it was about time to switch it up a bit! And after making {these} pumpkin pie bites, I knew what needed to be done. Pecan pie cupcakes. Come on, y'all. This easy white cake is mixed with chopped pecans for a simple cupcake. But it's the frosting that will hook you. Butter and brown sugar come together to form such a creamy, fall, flavor … [Read more...]

Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Muffins


Treat yourself to a taste of fall with my delicious Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Muffins! Is there anything better than pumpkin and chocolate? I think not. I love fall baking - there is simply nothing like the smell of pumpkin ginger as they fill up your kitchen and spread across your house. I absolutely love these muffins! They are jam packed with flavor and the simple glaze on top makes them extra perfect. These are a new favorite in our house! Here's your line up. Stir spice … [Read more...]
