100-things-challenge

Hey guys! Its Kate from Candidly Kate again. I am always amazed at how much stuff we acquire. I have no idea where it comes from. Maybe it is a product of having kids around? Or maybe that is just my excuse! At the same time, I like to think that I am a fairly organized person. […]

Sweet and Spicy Bacon-Wrapped Smokies

imag2000

I got this recipe off my co-worker Rita at our New hire training pot luck.  This is the easiest, yummiest appetizer EVER.  I need to make a double batch next time.  They are completely addicting and they turn you into a greedy little pork lover…if you’re not already.    I think Michael Symon would be […]

I love to shop, even if I’m only window shopping.  But I’m trying to save money since we have to go buy a car today.  So instead of showing you what I bought (boo), I’m sharing some awesome finds from Etsy, that I’m oo-ing and ah-ing over.  Lots of cute stuff while supporting handmade businesses, […]

Soy-Glazed Salmon

soyglazedsalmon

I love to make salmon, and I have a couple go to recipes I use to prepare it.  But I’m bored.  I want a new way to enjoy my favorite fish.  So I googled (of course I did) and found this recipe from Martha Stewart’s website.  It’s easy, I already had everything in the house […]

Honey Pound Cake

honeypoundcake

I’ve always adored pound cake.  Yes, homemade is best.  But I’ve been known to buy a frozen Sara Lee pound cake and not share and maybe eat it all in one sitting.  Kidding…Unless you do that too.  Then we’re meant to be friends! This pound cake has a little extra sweetness and the crust gets […]

Alton Brown’s Biscuits

ab's biscuits

I made Biscuits and Gravy for breakfast the other day.  I didn’t want to use refrigerated biscuits.  They just don’t seem to hold up to the gravy the way I like.   Being a dedicated follow or Mr. Alton Brown, I looked up his Southern Biscuit recipe.  These biscuits are GREAT!  They puffed up so […]
