Creamy Chicken, Mushroom and Brie Soup

You know when you’ll need this Creamy Chicken, Mushroom and Brie Soup? Today! If you look outside our window right now it’s snowing. And my two toddlers could not be more thrilled. The only downside to this of course is when we have to tell them it’s time to come inside before they freeze to death. John Grayson was actually born in Indiana so we were used to snow for months in the winter but down south that’s a different Continue Reading…

Mashed Butternut Squash with Goat Cheese and Brown Butter

Who’s ready for a food coma?!     That’s where normally if this were a text I’d find the girl with both hands in the air because I am so excited about all the food. So what are you in charge of on Thursday? I’m in charge of a glazed ham, deviled eggs, and sweet potato biscuits. I also did a little trial run for some new dishes this year: a sausage, apple, cranberry dressing and mini pecan pies. So Continue Reading…

Holiday Cheese Ball

How is it already time for Thanksgiving? I feel like just yesterday that I was talking about fall finally being here. And now winter is only 1 month away. If you’ve seen Instagram lately my crew has been a little busy. A week in Disney – then 4 days of a fever virus. Isn’t it funny after a vacation you feel like sometimes you need another vacation? Why is that? But I guess that vacation will be next week when kids Continue Reading…

Fancy Tailgating Sliders

Who doesn’t love a fun tailgate? Now I don’t know about you but when I was younger tailgating was pretty much walking around with a beer in a koozie and seeing tons of people bring in lots of food. Okay maybe things haven’t changed that much other than the fact that I might be toting two toddlers. Well I haven’t actually made that plunge yet – maybe next year. But I will always remember two tailgates that set the bar Continue Reading…

Sheet Pan Beef Nachos

There is nothing better than watching a football game while chowing down on your favorite snacks. Well maybe having a pint of your favorite beer to go along with it. I first made these nachos with some chicken I slow cooked in a homemade taco spice mix and some salsa. Now while those were great…I thought I needed to do something a little quicker than a slow cooker for game day…well until it gets cooler for chili. And let’s be honest Continue Reading…

Caramelized Onion, Bacon and Gruyere Quiche

Caramelized Onion, Bacon and Gruyere Quiche – just the name makes me want to do a little dance thinking about it. After months of all kinds of sick bugs going around our house I think it’s all downhill from here. Knock on wood. Saying a prayer of course. But with the kids out of school for 3 weeks it is getting a little crazy with me trying to work from home. Blog posts have been pushed to Friday (sometimes Saturday) because my Continue Reading…

Mexican Corn Salad

As you can see I am back from my blog vacation. I decided recently that I needed to take a mental vacation.  Do you ever need one of these? I mean I obviously still had to go to my other job that pays the bills, but I have been a little overwhelmed lately. We are finally all healthy again. The kids and I had the stomach bug one week. The following week Amelia got pink eye. And we are now in Continue Reading…
