Bacon cheddar scones

Do a little dance… make a little love… get down tonight. OK I’m not speaking verbatim but after this recipe came out of the oven I felt like singing this song.  I might have even done a little jig dancing.  Baking is a true passion of mine but I can say that I had...

behind the scenes

Where the heck did the month of August go?  In a blink of an eye we will all be looking into the year of 2015.  Before I get ahead of myself I’m sharing the month of August’s behind the scenes. Most of the items used in these shots were tiles from Lowes, white and...

costco quinoa salad

I’m a little too late to the beach scene.  School has started back up and vacations for “most” people are over.  Not the case for our family.  I’m packing us up and we are headed to Charleston this weekend for a little R & R. Can we talk about faux tans for a minute?...

Tailgating foods

Fig, prosciutto and burrata crostini

Dinner parties….. Yay or nay? I would say that I love them, but to be honest I don’t really ever attend or host them.  Total bummer especially for someone who loves putting little appetizers or finger foods together.  On most occasions I create an appetizer just to have my husband and I eat it...

Bacon pistachio goat cheese balls

This past weekend I took a total of 5 naps in 3 days.  I took two on Friday before 1pm and I finally think I am caught up on my sleep.   Coffee is no longer a necessity to keep me awake so all I need is just a nice comfort drink in the morning. ...

Coffee cake

Did you know that coffee cake doesn’t have any coffee in the recipe? Bizarre I know. It’s the classic breakfast recipe that is paired with a hot cup of jo and you don’t want to miss out on it. In fact I’m pretty sure that I could eat one of these slices every morning...
