Spicy Cheese Grits

As a good Southern girl, I love me some grits! Hubs is more of a Cream of Wheat fan (gag) being from up north, but I have sold him on cheese grits during our 10 years together. Even if you aren't a fan of grits for breakfast, I encourage you to try them "jazzed up" with cheese and spice. You just might like … [Read More...]

Discover Boating with Your Family this Summer!

From my dad's little jon boat to the various rentals we've enjoyed on family vacations, I have fond memories of boating. Here's hoping Sweet T loves being out on the water as much as her mom does! Judging by how much she enjoyed being on the lake last year I'd say there's a pretty good chance (if I can just get her to love fishing too I'll have a … [Read More...]

This blackberry crumble isn't low in calories, but when is the last time you got protein, fiber, and iron out of your dessert? You can thank the flax seed for that. Use Xylitol instead of sugar to further reduce calories and make the recipe diabetic-friendly. Substituting rice flour makes the dish gluten-free. It's a treat everyone can enjoy!

This blackberry crumble isn't low in calories, but when is the last time you got protein, fiber, and iron out of your dessert? You can thank the flax seed for that.

Hey Girl Hubs Edition

I love the Hey Girl Ryan Gosling meme. Every time a new one pops up on Pinterest I crack up. Hubs thinks they are pretty funny too since he has three sisters, a mom, a wife, and a daughter. He knows women! My favorite so far? It's a toss up between: or (since I'm a wannabe photographer) or (as a scrapbooker) Tonight I came home from a … [Read More...]

Finger Painting!

Sweet T was bored one morning. A bored Sweet T usually results in "creativity" such as shoving Plah-Doh into our central air intake. So I thought why not break out the fingerpaints? Ok, I didn't really expect anything out  finger painting with a toddler except to have some fun. Mission accomplished! Oh that's why the box says ages 3 and … [Read More...]
