Happy Pi Day everyone! Or pie day for all you non-math nerds. 🙂 Today is officially the 1 year mark to my wedding. It’s weird to finally be all like, “it’s one year away.” Until now I’ve been ahead of the game and all the wedding timelines, and now I’m in them for real. To put my mind at ease, I made pie.

There’s nothing worse than seeing a gorgeous filet being cooked to death. But fear not, this recipe with bring your favorite filet (or any steak really) to great new heights. The relish is lovely and the sauce gives a wonderful creamy spice to
It’s Popcorn Lover’s Day. Fun holiday right? I feel like I fit right in. Popcorn is wonderful and delicious. It’s a happy snack and comes in so many different forms and flavors. Caramel, Butter, Cheese, Jalapeno, Ginger Teriyaki, Kettle Corn. Cracker Jacks, Popcorn Balls, Fiddle Faddle. The lists go on and on. When I was in junior high, I would make popcorn and drizzle it with chocolate syrup, yum! I like
I miss playing music. It’s almost impossible to play my viola with the kids awake (they want to touch and see and yell at me if I say no) and I can’t play when they are asleep…what if they wake up? We can’t have that. *sigh* Someday soon I’ll get my chops back. In high school I was in orchestra, a fiddle performance group, marching band, and concert band.
It’s National Chocolate Cake Day. This pretty much sounds like the best holiday ever. I mean, come on. It’s an excuse to bake and eat an entire some chocolate cake. I spent last night making this cake for you. Can I just tell you how hard it is to keep a two year old calm and collected when there’s chocolate cake, candy bars, and chocolate chips floating around the counter. A few
I was a brownie. I was. Brown sash, weekend meetings, knot tying, all that stuff. Every year when our troop sold cookies I would always sell the most. Go me! I think it had in large part to do with my dad buying 10 boxes of peanut butter cookies and my mom taking my sign up sheet to the hospital where she worked. PICU nurses on a 12-hour shift
The days are getting shorter and the evenings are getting cooler. Fall evenings are meant for curling up under a cuddly blanket with a mug of something warm and tasty in your hands. One of my favorite winter time drinks is a nice hot buttered rum. Butter, brown sugar, a few spices… add a shot of rum and hot water and voila! The perfect way to warm up on a

Two of our favorite summer time drinks are margaritas and iced tea. Mike drinks iced tea like it’s going out of style, and I can always go for an ice cold margarita. When I saw Jose Cuervo’s Iced Teagarita my wheels started turning. An iced tea margarita…could this be good? Guess what. It is! I added some fresh fruit, hit blend, and made a totally yummy new cocktail! Now, if you’re not
If I’ve never mentioned it before, Mike works for an adult beverage distribution company. We end up with all kinds of fun shwag around the house. Today was the best! He brought me home a Jack Daniel’s bottle cake mold and label stencil. How cool is that?!?? I immediately wanted to make the cake happen. I talked Mike into hitting Michael’s for food coloring. I didn’t own a nice spatula for
