It’s the day before Thanksgiving, and a lot of you are probably wondering why I’ve decided to make a post about ham and potatoes instead of turkey and stuffing, like pretty much every other blogger on the planet. Honestly, I don’t have a good answer for that, but I do have a kind of funny,

If you liked the Mint Mocha Body Scrub from a few weeks ago, then you’re going to love this week’s recipe! A friend of mine inspired me to go check out the local flora in my new home. To my surprise (and thrill), I realized that the community was FULL of decorative lavender plants! I

I love lemon baked goods at any time of year, though my biggest struggle is making baked goods “healthy” (although those guilt-free “fudge” brownies I made are probably the best example to date).

One of my friend-Skylers (the local one) mentioned the idea of banana pumpkin bread to me, and I had to say, I was intrigued. I enjoyed banana bread and I happened to have a surplus of pumpkin puree in the cupboard due to a sale at the local grocery store. 3 for 1. Great deal,

When I was a little girl, we used to have big family Christmases with lots of people, tons of food, and enough cookies to feed all of Santa’s elves. While there are a few baked goods we continued to make after the Christmas get-togethers stopped, but these weren’t one of them, for some reason. When

This is another recipe we found in Nana’s stash of recipe cards. According to Poppa, it came from his sister, Dorothy, who used to make it for him all the time and later passed the recipe on to Nana. I added a couple of spices to it to make the dough a little more interesting,
