Peppermint Patty Chocolate Cookies

+-*8 days into December and I’m only half way through my Christmas shopping. Most people are in my shoes right now but I’m kind of in a freak out moment. Why you may ask? I’m usually done at this time or trying to get one or two more presents. This past week I spent...

Christmas munch

+-*Why is it that we can walk into a salon, sit down with a complete stranger and blab to the world about our lives? My hair appointments usually take about 2-3 hours and my stylist can get so much out of me in that amount of time it is crazy. It’s also fun to...

Basil Pesto Butter

+-*No I didn’t churn my own butter for todays post but that would be really rad.  This is just an “elevated” version of your typical stick butter with flavor.  Now it’s time to let you know how I came to make basil pesto butter. It was a cold, wintery day here in town.  My...

People are last minute shopping and trying to make travel plans before Christmas approaches. Meal prep is well under way and we are adding last minute decoration touches to our home. It...

Sweet Spice Rub Steaks

Comfort over looks any day.. well most days. After I write this post it’s off to do some online Black Friday shopping. I’m...

Edible Christmas gifts

+-*At the age of 5 I remember family and friends dropping off large baskets of goodies at our home.  I would sift through the packages trying to rummage some goodies for myself.  Fast forward 25 years and I am still in LOVE with them.  I no longer mash down the chocolates to see whats...

dothedownton

+-*In just a little over a month Downton Abbey will start back up again. Last year I got addicted to the show after some down time due to flight delays and layovers. You could basically say that I caught up with the past 3 seasons in just two days. I was just a little...
