Football season is finally underway! Whoop! Now my husband and I aren’t big sports people, but my 10-year-old is! He is the student manager for the varsity football team at the local school and he loves it. He get’s to be right up front in the action and get’s to participate in the practices and interact with the players on a daily basis. Besides doing that he is a big ESPN fan and watches every sport imaginable. So needless to say if I care of not, I get score updates on pretty much any game that is currently on. Read more
Yesterday I posted my love for Southern food. I’m going to continue with that trend today. Have you guys ever heard of Hoe Cakes? If not they are this cute little fritter like patty made with corn meal and such all fried until golden brown and served as a side dish. You can serve them savory or sweet, I love devouring mine with syrup on top, nummo. Read more
Another Monday is upon us. I am not a Monday person, I enjoy my weekends and the time I actually get to spend with my family. My husband works longer hours so we don’t get to see him as much as we used to so the weekends are a big deal around here. It’s more of less when things get done. Well I get stuff done during the week, but besides cooking and cleaning, the weekends are for groceries, house projects family outings, etc.. Whomever decided that the weekends should just be two days can kiss my you know what Lol, just kidding. Read more
Good morning everyone. It is seriously unseasonably cold here in Minnesota the last few days. This past weekend we had our 90 degree hot and humid normal which I admittedly love. Now its only the high of like 63, what gives? This is too cold for my liking. I’m speaking more from always being absolutely freezing and not circulating the way it is. I suppose it is something that I will just have to adjust. Boo. Read more

Craving Italian? Try this delicious Arancini – a delicious ball of rice, filled with cheese and bacon and deep-fried!
Who love out of the box foods? I know that I do for sure! Arancini is one of those foods that I fell for a long time ago! I’m not exactly sure the first time this delightful dish, but I’ve made it over and over and over since!
Is it Friday yet? Do you ever have those weeks that seem like they are just dragging on and will not end? Yup, that is my current week. I kinda wish it would just rain all week so it would be an excuse for me to crawl in my little hole and just do nothing except watch Netflix and eat massive amounts of food. But alas, I have children and others that I care for so those are only fantasy’s at this point. I sound like such a Debbie downer, but trust me I truly am not, it’s just one of those weeks. Read more

Game day just got kicked up a notch!! Read more
