Oh, the Blue Bonnets!

I've heard you're not a true Austinite until you've taken photos of your kids in the Blue Bonnets... Well...I guess I am officially an Austinite now.  Heehee!



The Princess and The (Sweet) Pea

I hope you all had a happy Halloween! Jordan dressed up as a princess this year while Savannah was a little sweet pea.  Super cute. This was the first year Jordan went trick-or-treating. We weren't sure if "Playful Jordan" or "Timid Jordan" would show up for the trick-or-treating, but she loved it. Surprisingly, Jordan had [...]



My Girls

In one of her recent comments on my blog, Jeanne, a fellow blogger and *dare I say* friend of mine who runs the blog, Inside NanaBread's Head, requested an update on Savannah, our new lil' bundle of joy. NanaBread, here you go! It's funny, now, to even think of Savannah as a new addition to [...]


A Day in my Hometown of Ojai, California

A Day in my Hometown: Ojai, California

Halloween: A Follow-Up

Sorry for two posts in a row that aren't recipes. Dustin and I are currently in Arkansas after a family emergency involving Dustin's dad. Things should hopefully be back to "normal" starting next week. Thank you to everyone for your well wishes and prayers. In the meantime, please enjoy this post about Jordan. So, after [...]


Happy Halloween!

Happy (early) Halloween, everyone!  I hope you all have a safe and fun time.  If you're like Dustin and me, you are happy to see the little trick-or-treaters at your door because it means you can finally get rid of all the candy you bought way too early and, because of this, have slowly pecked [...]


A Special Thanks to my Sous Chef

I'd like to just take a moment to offer my appreciation and my gratitude to my wonderful little sous chef, Jordan Lily. Without you, Jordan, I'd still be in a daze in this world.  Without you, I wouldn't yet know happiness. You have brought so much joy to your parents'  lives.  Thank you for being [...]


Hello out there!

As I sit here in front of my computer, I question whether I can actually write a blog people would be interested in reading.  What should I say?  What topics will I cover?  Do I really understand food enough to write a food blog?  And the answer is…..?   Readers, (god, I hope I have readers) [...]
