Usually I do a lot of planning for my recipes.  I plan what I am going to make and how, and what I am going to serve it with.  For the braised cabbage recipe I posted Monday, I had made that several times for myself just because I really like sitting down to enjoy a

No matter where you go, or who you talk to, it is likely you have something in common: super cold weather.  Like, some companies in Minnesota closed last week because it was dangerous how cold it was.  On a thermometer, that would be a reading of nutso cold. Between the cold and shorter sunny hours,

What I love maybe the most about this time of the year is snuggling up with hot beverages.  Hot tea, the occasional cup of coffee, and hot chocolate.  Oh hot chocolate.  Is there a more perfect drink? And I have been all about Christmas movies (it feels like my TV stays on ABC Family the

Oh hello!! It feels like it’s been a while since we chatted.  I didn’t prattle on as much as usual during my Thanksgiving series over the last couple of weeks.  So I am pretty excited to begin spilling by guts again.  I know that’s why you come visit me here, not for the recipes.  Right?

Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Cookies (Gluten Free, Vegan Option)

Halloween is over, but I am not over the whole pumpkin thing yet.   Can we make a pact to eat as much pumpkin related foods until Thanksgiving?  By that time I assume we will be so sick of it that we can give them up cold turkey until next year. Speaking of Halloween, I

I have never really loved shopping.  But when we are at Disney World, it is one of my favorite things to do. On our recent trip I got all kinds of goodies for myself (including the Minnie Mouse ears that made my Halloween costume possible) but we also bought some little things for our nieces

I love holidays.  I love collecting fun little decorations that I get to haul out once a year and enjoy for a few months.  I almost always forget what I bought the previous year, and it’s like discovering things I love all over again.  It’s one of the reasons I love holidays so much. And,
