I Guess I Bake Bread Now + Homemade Pimento Cheese

I never thought bread baking was for me. You all know that I love to cook, and I love that you can fly by the seat of your pants a bit in cooking. Whereas baking takes more precision, and you have to actually carefully follow the recipe. Baking bread has always intimidated me. The yeast, and leavening, and kneading… it just always seemed like a lot of work. Plus, it takes so long to bake a loaf that if it[Read more]

Snack Lunches

So how was the first day of homeschooling?? After the first official digital learning day, I can actually say that it went better than I was expecting. I only yelled once, the kids got some work done, I got some work done, we cooked together, they read, and only 2 of the 3 kids cried! That’s a successful day in these parts! I hope the day went smoothly for you too. Whether you followed a color-coded chart and marked every[Read more]

But there’s always time for shopping, right?! Here are just a few of the things I’ve been obsessed with this month- what about you?

Summertime Peach and Tomato Salad + Weekly Meal Plan

tomato and peach salad

I love finding simple recipes for all our fabulous summer Farmer’s Market finds. We love to scour our local market for squash, zucchini, cucumbers, greens, okra, tomatoes (of course), and Georgia favorites, peaches! The kids will just eat them like apples, but I like to find more creative ways to use them. So imagine my delight when I came across this recipe from Mark Bittman of the New York Times that I had saved (and printed out!) ages ago. So[Read more]

This is 37: Trader Joe’s Favorites

Hello again my friends! I got to stretch my birthday out a bit longer with an awesome day out shopping with my mom on Monday. We don’t get to do that nearly as often as we’d like (or used to back before kids), so it was a real treat! And then life got SO BUSY again, and here I am and it’s Thursday (but only two days of school left)!! And I’m continuing to stretch out my birthday this week,[Read more]

With ALL THE EASTER CANDY the kids have been collecting over the last week, we took it easy on the candy and[Read more]

Weekend Recap + Weekly Meal Plan

Happy Monday, friends! How was your weekend? Anything fun? We had a pretty regular weekend, but it was great. I don’t know what it was- if the stars were aligned, or I just wasn’t super stressed , or everyone was just in a great mood, but we just had a great weekend!
