Garden Gab, Week 7

Is there anything better than watching things you planted blossom and grow? Well, okay watching my children grow tops watching my plants grow, but watching my plants grow is still pretty awesome. The warmth has taken hold here in Texas. The temps are holding steady in the mid to upper 80’s. I’d prefer the 70’s, …

Chicken Migas

Generally I agree with The Pioneer Woman on most food related issues. To me though, Migas is not Migas without Chorizo. Chorizo is really greasy and fatty though.😦 A local market, I adore Sprouts Farmer’s Market, sells ground chicken chorizo. I decided to give the chicken a try and boy, howdy I’m glad I did. …

Myths, Emails and Bananas

I’m participating in the iPPP link up that Liz and KLZ host. My Mother likes to forward chain(ish) e-mails to me. I’m sure many Mothers do. Recently, my Mother forwarded one to me titled “Clever ideas at home worth knowing”. Sounds interesting right? I believe it to be full of myths. So, I’m testing the …

Butter, Shaken not Churned

If you’re here to enter the MyBlogSpark giveaway I’m hosting click here. Yes, shaking is technically churning. Work with me people, it’s a cute title. I’m a tiny bit addicted to Pinterest.

Two cookbooks, a lovely card, peppers from their garden, blueberry jam and a reindeer made …

Frugally yours, for the Holidays.

I read a great post on Things I Can’t Say yesterday. I love reading what Shell writes, I like to think that we’d be coffee or wine friends if we lived in the same state. I think that about more than a few people, but I’m way friendly and super social in my imagination. Anyhooo…. …

Why I love blogging, Thankfulness this Wednesday.

There are so many awesome things about blogging. One of the most awesome things? The people. I’ve “met” wonderful people all over the United States and beyond. One of those wonderful people is Allie. She writes about books, vegan food and her life @ Forgotten Beast. Allie made a fabulous frog hat for Halloween. I …

Thanksgiving and Holiday prep, an a confession about shopping

The North American holiday, Thanksgiving is just around the corner (for those of us in the United States).  If you follow many foodie blogs that are U.S. based, I’m sure you’re already very aware of this. We are talking turkey, getting very verbal about veggies, posting a plethora of pies. Oh, that was silly.  I’ll …

Where I went…Wednesday

A lot of people post “What I wore, Wednesday” or “What I ate, Wednesday”.  I’m going to tell you where I went, via the interwebs over the last week.   My bloggy friend Andrea wrote a beautiful tribute post and posted a caramelized onion recipe for friend she recently lost.   I made homemade laundry …

Turkey Bacon Jam

So, over the weekend I made turkey bacon jam. I’m sure you’re saying Wha? Bacon jam? Turkey bacon? Yes, friends, I said turkey bacon jam. It’s savory and it’s sweet. It’s heavenly on toast. It’s pure brilliance. I got the idea from Foodie with Family. I believe she got the idea from the Martha Stewart’s …
