Lasagna Soup

Anyone else willing fall to actually happen? It’s September. Today’s high is 90 degrees. The boots in my closet are weeping. I moved all the shorts and swim suits out of my dresser yesterday in an act of defiance against this stupid weather. Come on summer, we are so over you. Know when to quit….

StrawberrySourCreamCupcakes

Strawberry Sour Cream Cupcakes

I’m going to rant about strawberry cupcakes for a minute so just hang on. I’ve made a lot of versions of strawberry cupcakes. Strawberry Champagne cupcakes , Strawberry Lemon cupcakes, and these strawberry cupcakes from two years ago.  Don’t forget about the strawberry ruffle cake from a couple years earlier. I thought I had it figure…

Mini Corn Dogs

There aren’t a lot of things in my parenting tool box that I would classify as brilliant, but of the few gems in there, this is one of them. It seems fitting to me that this brilliance is related to food as this seems to be where passion and excellence meet for me. When I’m…

Tacaritos

Tacaritos {Taco-Enchilada-Burritos}

Yes. Tacaritos are a thing. Why are they a thing, you ask? Why not just make really excellent tacos? Or enchiladas? Or hey, a burrito? Because.  It’s Thursday.  In my mind, making dinner looks like a beautiful apron tied around my waist, a glass of red wine next to the stove, and me peacefully taking…

Caramel Cake

Caramel Cake

Caramel cake. It’s my new obsession. That and fish tacos. But not together, because ew. I originally made this for “family dinner”, which is when our family and the two neighbors from the old neighborhood indulge in our denial that we no longer live next to each other and we all have lunch after church….

Sausage Bread

Sausage Bread

Guys. We survived. We got FOUR whole inches of snow last week and were subsequently “snowed in” from Friday to Monday. If you’re not from the South, let me explain how this is possible. We have seven snow plows for the entire Nashville area. I’m not kidding. Not even a little. So here’s what happens:…

Winter Confessions & Mini Bailey’s Cheesecake Trifles

Greetings from Nashville! As un-motivating as the whole 12 degree temperature is outside, I’m singing because the SUN IS SHINING! Ready for confession #1? The SweeterThing’s have recently discovered that my mind packs a bag and says “sayonara suckers!” when daylight savings ends each fall. It’s only taken me three years to identify this as…

Sugar Cookie Bars

This is so cheating. On more than one level. For starters, the pictures are ooooold. Remember when I lived in a super crappy apartment and all my pictures were done under fluorescent lighting and my “final shots” were ALL done on the one picnic table I had right outside my apartment? Yep, these are from…

Thanksgiving Dishes

My Favorite Thanksgiving Dishes

One of my favorite days is almost here. I mean, besides Friday. Thanksgiving is upon us, my elastic pants are washed and packed and ready to go. I’m ready to throw down an embarrassing amount of food. We are headed to see family, many of which I haven’t seen since 2012. Shame on me, I…

Breadsticks

So Fast, So Delicious Garlic Breadsticks

Here I am. I have crawled out from under my pile of moving boxes. The last seven days has been…eventful. A little stressful. Only partly humorous. Unfortunately, part of our crazy from last week involved the passing of our little dog, Bunny. We named her before we had kids and realized how confusing that name…

Tortellini Soup

Tortellini Soup

Today has been a rollercoaster of emotions. I’ve maxed out my crazy quota for the month at this point. I’ve literally been ecstatic and uncontrollably sad in the exact same moment. I will wake up with cry face in the morning. I crawled into bed completely exhausted and yet am too wired to sleep. So…
