Tasty Tuesday: Anything-But-Basic Biscotti

I bought myself an early Christmas present. My husband hates that I do this, but it happens every year. I find something I really want, tell him to put it on his list, and then go out and buy it myself because I CAN’T WAIT! I’ve been wanting an espresso machine of my very own, […]

Tasty Tuesday: Chocolate Mayonnaise Cupcakes

I have a special affinity for “vintage” recipes. Especially those intended to use up pantry staples, rather than rely on expensive things like eggs, butter, and cream. And even though I LOVE cakes, I really don’t like baking them too often because of the work involved. All the dishes–yuck!  This is a classic Southern recipe […]

Help Change the Face of Child Hunger #ShareAMeal

It’s about to get heavy here on the blog. 1 in 5 children are unaware where their next meal is coming from. One. In. Five. That’s not in a third world country either. That’s on American soil. Rural towns, busy cities, sleep suburbs. 16 million kids struggle with hungry. Let me say that again too. […]
