Yellow Lard Cake with Berries and Cream (A ‘Beyond Bacon’ Giveaway)

This weekend, my little girl turned 2. I just love that little peanut and her growing personality. I would say I’m excited to be moving out of the baby stage.. but it’s only a few months before we move back into it. 😉 This was her birthday cake! I know it’s not the typical two-year-old […]

Hazelnut Fig Bars

  I’m in limbo. We are moving soon (just two months away..). It’s soon enough that I’m starting to get sad/nostalgic/motivated to start fresh/etc; but not soon enough that I can actually do anything about it. It’s too soon to start packing, too soon for goodbyes. I want to soak up the last bit of […]

A Monday Morning Giveaway

Thoughts on BlogHer Food

I have so much to say about this weekend! First of all, food bloggers are great people.  Every person I met was a g-e-m.  I loved meeting other people who care about things like photo garnishes, the chickens living in my garage (sorry I haven’t told you about that yet!) and how to take pictures […]

Corn, Crab and Tomato Salad

Happy May, ladies and gents! I want to start of the month with a little giveaway for you.. how does that sound? The lovely folks at Cooking Light have come out with a new cookbook called Way To Cook.  This cookbook isn’t just your typical pretty food photography and written recipes.  The book takes you […]

Win a Month of Three Sisters Cereal!

Are you a cereal person?  I love it.  Growing up, cereal and oatmeal were essentials at our house (“Breakfast is the most important meal of the day, Natalie.” Ahem.)  I never got the sugary good stuff, though.  Mom and Dad were not about to let that happen.  Sugar and I were (are) a crazy combo.  […]
