So I accidentally started watching Grey’s Anatomy again. I know that’s completely unrelated to Cheddar, Garlic, and Onion Biscuits, but stay with me.
How does one accidentally start watching a tv show? Like this: one Sunday afternoon I decided I wanted to take a nap. When I nap (it almost never happens) I like something on the tv in the background. I prefer it to be something I’ve seen before so it doesn’t matter if I doze off. Grey’s Anatomy was one of the first things that came up on Netflix that afternoon, so I hit play. I loved the first season and I planned to just watch a few episodes and stop. Continue reading →
This past weekend was too beautiful to stay home and do practical things like cleaning or the laundry, so we decided to head into the foothills of the North Georgia mountains with some Fall Snack Mix for an adventure.
There are a number of wineries within a two hour drive of our home. It may seem like a 100% adult thing to do, but on Sunday afternoon they were crowded with families. There were some amazing outdoor spaces, live music, and places to play. Continue reading →
In this busy season, I love having a few easy meals that I can have ready in just a few minutes. These Mexican Tostada Pizzas are simple to prepare and loved by kids and grown ups for the simple fact that I decided to call them pizzas.
My kids ask for pizza every week and they also love tacos and burritos. I married the two to create Mexican Tostada Pizzas. Continue reading →
The best laid plans. Sometimes, as in the case of these Pumpkin Cheesecake Bars, they work out. Sometimes, as in the case of my weekend, they don’t.
I planned to take these Pumpkin Cheesecake Bars to a football tailgate this weekend. We’d been planning it for weeks. This was a big game. The timing couldn’t have been better because the kids didn’t have a soccer game on Saturday. We had babysitters. We had food. We had a plan. Continue reading →
Today I’m sharing the a second recipe made with apples from our apple picking adventure last week. I wanted a more savory dish to pair with all the sweet things we made. This Pork Tenderloin with Apples and Onions fit the bill perfectly.
We had a peck of apples to use, so I asked my kids for input about what they wanted to make. My son immediately requested Apple Pie. It was an interesting request considering I’ve never made an apple pie. Continue reading →
During our time off last week, I took the kids apple picking in North Georgia. We returned home with a peck of apples and lots of ideas about how to use them, including my favorite Peanut Butter Apple Dip.
A peck, in case like me you didn’t know, is 10 – 12 pounds of apples. I’d estimate that we came home with around 25 of them. Continue reading →
We have the week off school this week and we’ve taken advantage of it. Mornings are normally busy, but we were able to slow down and make a batch of Chocolate Chip Pancakes.
Our school system takes a week-long break in September every year (remember – we started school on August 1). I have to tell you, September break is the best thing ever. The first few weeks of school are exhausting and a break in September gives everyone a chance to recharge their batteries. It’s cooler (normally – this year it’s still in the 90s) so there’s time for outside activities. Vacations are cheaper in September too. Continue reading →
