happy halloween!

The month of October has been all too good this year. I so enjoyed my photo a day challenge and loved that I took the time to capture and treasure the small, magical moments this month creates. From our beautiful trip up to the Pacific Northwest, to the much needed family time back in Texas, […]

I have been spending more time in the kitchen as of late and am loving it. Fall is the perfect excuse to spend mixing and pouring and baking and smelling the wonderful aromas coming out of the oven. And now that the weather is starting to cool off, I’m happy to have my oven turned […]

One of my unofficial resolutions this year is to cook more. If you’ve followed my blog, you know how much of a baker I am (mostly of chocolate chip cookies…weekly). Cooking was something I was never taught growing up, and since it doesn’t always lend itself to exact measurements and an easy step by step […]

I finally have time to catch up on here. Work is over. Filming is over. And packing is pretty much over (we still have to clean). But right now I am home for the holidays and have loved the freedom to do as I please. There will be a lot more photos and posts coming […]

brownies from scratch

I get cravings. Often. Last night I craved brownies, which meant I had to bake brownies. Lucky for me, I had all of the ingredients in my kitchen to bake this batch (because I was not going to be happy about venturing out to the grocery store in this cold front we have been having). […]
