Today is National Doggy Biscuit Appreciation Day. We’re getting a pup that gets to come home in just a couple more weeks.

As most parents, bloggers, and most every female in the 14-55 demographic, I spend a lot of time on Pinterest looking for new craft ideas for the kiddo, recipes to try, DIY projects, and of course, to avoid doing household chores that I know can wait another day, or week.

While today is national drink wine day, I can’t do that owing to the fact that I’m now 7 1/2 months pregnant. He’s still cooking in there, but is soon to be evicted if he gets much bigger.

We’ve all seen those cookies in the fridge section of the store with cute designs of hearts, pumpkins, or some other holiday themed design in the center.

It’s actually a really easy recipe and very popular around Mardi Gras in New Orleans and in other largely Cajun areas. It’s delicious soup and often times […]

First of all, it’s Valentine’s Day on the 14th, so if you’re planning on baking up some cute treats, or your planning a fancy romantic dinner in, many have already started preparing their menu and buying their ingredients for that dinner. Then, on the 17th […]

My mom likes to bake cupcakes, almost as much as I do. When I went to baking school, I specialized in cupcakes because I just love them. They are easy to make and not many people say no to a cupcake because portion control-wise, they are pretty perfect. One of my mom’s most favored recipes […]

Now, I would like to preface this by saying that I am all for kids learning to cook and being independent in the kitchen, and other areas of their own lives for that matter. I think it’s important for kids to know the basics of learning how to cook their own food so that they […]
