…the little I know about food bloggin’
I get at least 3 emails a week asking for advice on how to have a successful food blog or how to “get more readers”. At first it was flattering…Y’all actually think I know what I am doing?! HA! I am just learning as I go — like every other blogger out there. If you [...]
Peach BBQ Slow Cooker Pork with Cilantro Citrus Slaw
The older I get, the more ok I get with certain vegetables. Sure I always ate things like broccoli, carrots, squash and what not…but put some cabbage in front of me and I was out of there. There is still no way you will get me to eat slimy okra, but I am slowly coming [...]
Peanut Butter Dog Biscuits
I have 5 animals. 1 dog that thinks he is a cat and 4 cats that think they are people. I know, I know — this sounds absolutely excessive. It probably is, but each one of them has shown up needing a home and Jorge and I are helpless to turn them away. We are [...]
Cookie Dough S’mores (& cookbook giveaway!)
When my friend, web designer, and one of my favorite bloggers Lindsay, of Love and Olive Oil, told me she was writing a cookbook, I was so excited for her. When she told me it was all recipes that had or tasted like cookie dough, I was ecstatic…for myself! I have been a batter eating fool my whole

Goat Cheese Stuffed Dates
I want to talk about Dates today, but first we have to talk about “Stuffed”. My past three recipe posts have been stuffed… Stuffed Dates, Peanut Butter Stuffed Brownies, and Pulled Pork Stuffed Sweet Potatoes. I have no idea what my hang up is with everything stuffed. So no, this isn’t like a ...
Seattle As Seen Through An iPhone
I just got home from waking up to this magical view each morning…and I already miss it. Of course I missed my 4 legged babies and Jorge, but if I could manage to just scoop up my life and drop it in Seattle — I totally would. I get so many emails from people about [...]
The video where I smile a lot & talk really fast.
Back in June I made a video with my favorite girl, Lauren of Lauren’s Latest and Jaden of Steamy Kitchen for Pork, Be Inspired and Costco. Lauren and I talked about Fall dish ideas using pork chops that we thought sounded tasty (even though it was May and sooo not time for things like maple gravy
