Holiday Gift Guide for Foodies

If you know someone who loves to eat, drink, grill, or cook then this Holiday Gift Guide is perfect for the foodie in your life! There is something you should know about me when it comes to gifts. I love to put a lot of thought into each gift I give. But I also used to be the kid/teenager (yes teenager) who would unwrap my gifts under the tree to find out what I was getting and wrap them back. That Continue Reading…

What’s for Dinner? {Menu for the Week}

First how was your Christmas?! If you saw on Instagram we obviously had fun! So instead of your typical weekly dinner menu since we are still in holiday travel mode I thought why not get you set up with a New Year’s Eve Menu? We obviously will be watching the Bama game while we eat some of this crazy goodness. Dips are a requirement at any Hall get together! Hot Swiss Dip

Glazed Ham

Whether it’s the main dish for your holiday or just a regular ol’ Sunday night dinner this Glazed Ham needs to be at the center of the table.

Apple Pie & Thanksgiving

How was your Thanksgiving? Ours was full of traveling, hunting, shopping, cooking and more traveling. But there is nothing like going back home to Alabama and Georgia. Thanksgiving came just in time too especially since I am back in the kitchen. This year I contributed creamed corn, spiced pecan pumpkin bread, apple pie, and pumpkin pie. As you can tell we had a feast for Thanksgiving and it was only 6 of us. But we had some of the best dishes we Continue Reading…

Deviled Eggs

I feel like Deviled Eggs are the quintessential dish you have at the holidays. Easter, Mother’s Day, Thanksgiving, Christmas….And let’s not forget it’s perfect for those BBQ’s. We can always count on celebrating John’s birthday around Memorial Day. This past weekend we not only got to go home but go up to John’s family farm. John went fishing and I got a tan, played fetch with the dogs, and relaxed. So whether it’s with friends or family fire up your grill or Continue Reading…

Seven Layer Salad

We all know how much I mention my mama on my site. And Sadly I cannot be in Georgia or Alabama to celebrate Mother’s day with both of my mamas. This is another downside to living up in Indy. But since I can’t be there I thought I would share this Seven Layer Salad recipe one of my Mama’s that I make for most holidays which has turned into one of John’s favorites. When we were up here for Easter, both John and Josh Continue Reading…

Whiskey, Guinness, Baileys OH MY Bundt Cake

I struggled with titling this cake recipe as well as posting about it for Beer Month. I made this for Easter and it was a hit! 4 weeks ago I would have easily called this Irish Car Bomb Bundt Cake but after the recent bombings in Boston my heart was filled with hurt and anger that I didn’t even feel like sharing this recipe for the cake. My prayers go out to the families and local & federal departments that have been effected Continue Reading…
