Amazon Grocery

I can’t possibly be the only one obsessed with Amazon Grocery and their subscribe and save option. It’s kind of like Christmas, since I usually forget what I’ve ordered. Here is the latest:


Organic Whole Wheat Pastry Flour x 2 – surprisingly harder to find in the regular supermarket and ridiculously over priced at specialty stores


Amazing Grass Organic Wheat Grass Powder- for smoothies, I don’t always want to chew my meals.

Double Boiler- for chocolate melting purposes. Obviously.

Still waiting for my Coconut Oil, it’s a ton cheaper online.

Am I the only one obsessed with buying groceries online?


Happy Mothers Day!

Happy Mothers Day! Hope everyone had an AMAZING day! Every year I spoil my mom rotten, but she indulges me the other 364 days of the year. Confession: I am a typical only child. I’m not spoiled, I’m blessed. On top of the fantabulous gifts I gave her, she also put in a special requests for pancakes. Fact: I can make cakes from scratch, I can roast an entire chicken, but I SUCK at pancakes. I have no idea where I go wrong but it almost always flops. I wasn’t completely thrilled with how these came out, I’m not sure if I put too much brown sugar in the batter or the fact that I forgot the pinch of salt (which does make a difference). My college boyfriend use to put sugar in his pancake batter and it was PHENOMENAL! Either way, my skills are lacking. I did, however, love the blueberry syrup! Simple and sweet.

Thanksgiving 2010

This year I cooked Thanksgiving dinner on my own. I kicked Grandma out the kitchen and made Mom my sous chef. It was hard. I stressed. I was on my feet from 10am-5pm. I loved every second of it and I CANNOT wait until next year.

Thanksgiving Menu:

Roasted Chicken

Steamed Broccoli

Sweet Potato Casserole

Mac & Cheese

Cinnamon Cake

Cornbread Stuffing with Sausage and Sage

Red Beans

Pumpkin Pie

Hope everyone had a Happy Thanksgiving!

Black Friday Success!

Standing outside of Sears at 2 30am in the rain was totally worth it ❤ Thanx mom! Full Thanksgiving recap to come! This year I’m thankful for friends, family, faith, food, health and all of YOU that stop by my little blog!

3-Step Fudge

Do you know Hungry Girl? A few years ago, my college roomies and I tried to figure out a way to have all of our after club treats without gaining a million pounds. You know how it is when you come home from a night of under age college drinking and you’re starving for absolutely no reason (don’t get all high and mighty on me now)? I purchased this cookbook after stumbling across the Hungry Girl website. It sat among my collection of cookbooks for practically forever until a few days ago when I was hit with a huge chocolate craving. How can you possibly go wrong with chocolate. Hungry Girl calls it Chocolate Peanut Butter Fudge. I call it simply delicious. I was skeptical at first about how the pumpkin would work in this recipe, but trust me, you won’t taste it at all!

I’m alive!

My laptop is currently out of comission and my netbook has decided not to connect to the net. I have so much to share with you all!

Pumpkin muffins
Super easy lasagna
The best cinnamon cake in the world!
Orange chicken gone horribly wrong

I’m hoping to be up and running by Thursday!

Does anyone know a good web designer? I was working with someone and I’m not quite sure what happened. They’ve gone MIA. Any help is greatly appreciated.
